What superpower would you want, and would you be a hero or a villain?

Asked by JeSuisRickSpringfield (5707points) September 18th, 2018

Would be anonymous or make yourself known? And if you wore a costume, what would it look like?

P.S. A little professional advice on the last question, though: no capes!

Super smarts. I would be neutral. I would earn a living with my smarts. I would wear sweats and a cardigan.

And, of course, I would be a unseen, unknown, nonchalant hero!
Only my smelly criminal apprehensions would be my mark, what people would be aware of.
Sorta like the Invisible Man…

Depends on what other superpowers are going to be handed out to the rest of the world.

I’d be a hero out to save the world from human destruction of the planet’s ecosystems, but I’d strategically pick my ability based on how many other caped crusaders there were about to be.

The ability to reach into the profile and strangle posters who ask what superpower I would like.

Naturally, it’s a matter of opinion as to whether or not this super power, and the de rigueur pink lycra bodysuit, would be for good or evil.

Mwa haha haha.

I would like politicians to turn orange every time they tell a lie. Wait….it is already happening!

Spiderman or Batman. Maybe a combination of the two.

I don’t need to fly in this fantasy scenario… swinging from a thread or using the batcopter batplane would suffice.

And I would definitely be a villain.

I’d like to be able to teleport. I’ve decided this over decades of sitting in L.A. traffic.

I’d be the anti-hero, a la The Punisher or something like that.

I’d never wear a costume.

I have a hard time reading people sometimes. Would cut out all of the guesswork.

Though realize that this superpower is kind of a can of worms. We may want to know what people are really thinking. But can we really handle it?
