You wake up with powers like that of Superman, how would you go about improving our world?

Asked by mazingerz88 (27052points) December 24th, 2011

Would you go to achieving “world peace”? If so, how? What steps are you going to take? Or would you just simply save lives from all sorts of disasters, man made or natural?

I don’t know what type of powers Superman have, but I would save the animals being killed for fur trade.

First thing I would do is swoop up all the nuclear warheads on earth and take them to Jupiter, where I would toss them like baseballs in to the red eye.
Secondly, I would kidnap all of the worlds leaders and sit them in a room and not feed them until they’ve come up with a way to live together in peace.

“What makes the world better for Superman, makes the world better” would be my motto. So the first thing I’d want to do would be to make a ton of money to secure a comfortable retirement. Then I’d have to think about where Superman is going to retire.

Eradicate the human species. One. By. One.

I would make a big plan to fertilize the deserts and spread grain.

Then I would go to a mall and abuse the x-ray vision potential with Soccer Moms passing by.

Then I would feel guilty and resolve to do something tomorrow.

I would go about it in secret so that no one came to rely on me too much. Like God says to Bender in Futurama: “When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.”

Force the taliban to be clad in pink, from head to foot.
Get in touch with their feminine side, then maybe…..just maybe, they’ll put to an end all this nasty unpleasantness with their guns & bad complexion & stuff.

I would help all the children of the world to sing in harmony.
Also, I’d start wearing underwear INSIDE my pants.

To be serious, however, I would take all the nukes and radioactive substances and destroy them, because they’re bad for the enviroment and humans and nukes are just bad in general. And since I’m Superman, I wouldn’t die.

Eliminate every dictator.
@judochop I would the same as you! Take all those warheads to jupiter….
Israel should get the fuck out of Palestine or they’re going to have a serious problem with superman.
Save the all dying kids out there….
Kill all terrorists.
That’s all I can come up with for now. Oh and yeah, If it’s okay I would change my name from superman to peaceman. It’s possible right? I mean after all, I’m superman.

I would first eliminate all monetary debts owed by humans. This would give everyone a fresh start in life, with their money and credit score.

I would second, find a cure for cancer and other dreaded human diseases.

I would third, cultivate the soil and give every person the knowledge of how to grow their own food, to eliminate world starvation.

There are many more, but Superman is just one person.

@Tbag haha, I was reading that and was giving you a virtual high five and then I got to the part where you said “Kill all terrorists” and read it as “Kill all tourists.” Whew!

TheIntern55's avatar

Oops, @judochop didn’t read the answers. Great minds think alike, yours just thought a little quicker.

Blondesjon's avatar

Before or after I have crushed all of my enemies in to paste?

TheIntern55's avatar

After, obviously. That is ALWAYS first on a superhero’s agenda.

talljasperman's avatar

I would find out who was handing out superpowers and stop them.

Tbag's avatar

@judochop Such a meanie….... :p

flutherother's avatar

I would simply kill all the bad guys.

I would cleanse the World of all Career Politicians. Howz that for a good start? ;)

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Only138 What do you call 100 politicians at the bottom of the sea? A good start!

judochop's avatar

@SavoirFaire what do you call 100 lawyers buried to their necks in sand?
