Fave Friday: Superpowers

February 19th, 2010
By

We've all dreamt it I'm sho. Having that one super power that will take us over the top. The man amongst men. The woman amongst women. Would be nice right?

Well, instead of just talking about and dreaming about it, let's put it on paper and make it a goal. You know what they say, write down your goals and you will achieve them. Soooo, post your ideal super power below and it shall become reality. :P K, maybe not, but play along won'tcha? 8)

At first, I thought of the most logical choices:

* Flying/Teleportation: Going on a trip, anywhere in the world be sa-weet!
* Living forever: I am Team Edward after all... ;)
* Invisibility/X-Ray Vision: duh! Ya bettah axe somebody rayboyjr why. :P Joking!

But the more and more I think about it, I think my superpower would simply be to make fo' real kine money with the wave of my hands. See, I'm easy. :P

Why? Well, because if I had an unlimited amount of cash flow, I would personally own my own jet or teleporting machine to travel. I could just buy a hyperbaric chamber to live (almost) forever. I could just pay to get an invisibility suit or x-ray goggles. Well, if they ever existed. So you see, with money out of thin air, I could just about do what I want. Muhahahaha!

I know, it 's the root of all evil, but what they hey, we're living in the fantasy world right now.

So what's your superpower wish? Post it below and I'll buy it for ya! ;)

Need some ideas? Check out this listing from Wikipedia!

Happy VH07V Friday y'all! Have a great weekend!

P.S. Tomorrow night, the UH Rainbow Men's Basketball Team takes on Cal Poly at 8PM at the Stan Sheriff Center in the Oceanic Time Warner Cable sponsored ESPN Bracketbuster game. Oceanic will be passing out an eco-friendly tote bag for the first 2,000 fans. Come on down if you can! (The Wahine are also in action earlier that night, taking on La Tech at 5PM.) Go Bows! :)

  1. tita leerz:

    first!


  2. tita leerz:

    the superpower i want to the ability to always get every wednesday's "where in the...." ...because I only have 5 points.


  3. tita leerz:

    i like ben ten and beast boy's powers...
    but if i were to stick with "girl" powers then i'd go with storm's. not rogue's cuz then she can't touch boys.

    i also like star fire AND fire star. throw me a fireball!!!!


  4. tita leerz:

    though i also wouldn't mind being claire.
    i'd like to also fly or teleport.


  5. tita leerz:

    if i could take "guy" powers, i go for magneto but not cyclops cuz den no one can look deeply into his eyes.

    the little boy on heros who could manipulate machines was pretty nutz too.


  6. tita leerz:

    superpowers in the "other category": to be able to blink my eyes and the the WHOLE house cleaned! dishes, laundry, kids messes, dog doots, you get my drift.

    on charmed, pru had some kick @$$ powers and do did piper. phoebe, not su much, but at least she could kick @$$ for real.


  7. Coconut Willy:

    I always liked Flash. Red tights with a lightning bolt. Hey, I think Shazam ripped him off!


  8. M:

    Good morning Ed!

    My superpowers would be just that, everything that I want to do or have, it will be done.


  9. Scott:

    I want to be able to hit a (hooker, porn star, pancake waitress) , I mean, golf ball like Tiger Woods!


  10. che:

    I would like to fly but I would also need super tough skin for when I crash into things. I'm surprised Superman hasn't knocked down a building or 2. Oh If the flying insurance is too expensive then I'll pass. Maybe teleportation insurance would be cheaper.

    Maybe time travel so I can go back in time and play the stock market a lot better than what I've done in the past.


  11. kuya.d:

    @Leerz - way to get all that off your chest ... must feel good to say it out loud. Nah-nah!


  12. kuya.d:

    If I had x-ray vision, I would be one mean MD. I could diagnose more accurately, and quickly. No need to deal with radiation. It would be a useful super power.


  13. t-roy:

    Omni-linguism - Ability to understand any form of language, a natural polyglot. This can be accomplished in various ways.

    Traveling to exotic places would be nice, wouldn't it be better to know the language as well. Along with that, I'm sure I would be able to find a nice paying job as a translator.

    Mission accomplished...got the money, can travel, and best of all I can have maximum enjoyment.


  14. kuya.d:

    Normally, I'd choose the flying bit ... But I'm in for helping the world.


  15. kuya.d:

    #2 @Leerz - that would be a waste ... Haha!


  16. kuya.d:

    @t-roy - you've been thinking this out for awhile, huh? that's a good one!


  17. kuya.d:

    @Scott - mm-hmmm ...


  18. skycastles:

    Whoa, just checked out the Wiki list and it's pretty extensive! Who knew there were so many different subgroups of powers?

    I'm not a huge superhero/comic book fan so maybe these guys are cool, but the names gotta go.

    - Plastic Man
    - Man-Bat
    - Matter-Eater Lad
    - Strong Guy
    - Glorificus
    - Immortal Man
    - Floronic Man
    - Ferro Lad

    They must've skipped right past the marketing peeps with these winners.


  19. hemajang:

    I have had this reoccurring dream of flying or actually leap-jumping and gliding for long distances. I wouldn't mind having that power without having to dream...is that day-dreaming?


  20. skycastles:

    Weird powers I probably wouldn't want:
    Bone manipulation - sounds painful
    Pheromone manipulation - sounds possibly useless
    Prehensile hair - strong hair just like Rapunzel
    Sonic scream - um, no
    Superhuman breath - just as long as it isn't rank

    Powers that sound kinda cool:
    Astral projection - finally be in two places at once
    Psionic blast - scary powerful
    Reality warping - kinda awesome


  21. rayboyjr:

    :D :D :D :D :D Happy VHO7V Friday Errr-One!!! :D :D :D :D :D

    … hey Ed … watcha talkin’ 'bout??? … is that all I’m known for in these parts??? … my friends know I … well, my good friends … uhhh, my family knows I’m … ok, ok … I know … well, I think I’m not a perv … I just play one on the blogs! … :D

    … but if that is my superpowers … so BEE it!!! …

    "Faster than fiber optic, more powerful than Google, able to find bodacious boobies on a single search."

    "Look, up on the net!"
    "It's a depraved child."
    "It's a corrupted mind".

    "No, it's Super-Perv!"

    … Have a Good One Everyone!!! …


  22. Chicken Grease:

    Invisibility.

    Ability to fly at will.

    Lasers that shoot from my hands.

    That's all you need. ;)

    Really good one with the okane from your own hands, Ed. Though, for my tastes, the gov't. seems to print money out of thin air (i.e., bailouts, i.e., probably what they'll do for nationwide healthscare) and look at where it's gotten us, heh.


  23. rayboyjr:

    ... and Ed ... just what da heck you thinking of doing??? ... with Invisibility/X-Ray Vision anyway??? ... I don't know what you mean ...

    .... I can only see one thing ... for the betterment of mankind!!! ... of course ...

    ... like kuya.d said ... X-ray vision for medical diagnosis ... could save millions of lives!!! ...

    ... and Invisibility ... I could go all over the world ... to secretly hunt down terrorists, murderers, and all the bad people ... and bring them to justice ...

    ... that's what I'd do!!! ...

    ... but with all this exhaustive searching ... yeah, there may be times ... I might mistakenly wander into the Women's Locker Room ... or look through the walls of the ladies dormitory ... but that would all bee just innocent mistakes!!! ... :D


  24. tita leerz:

    #11....TELL ME ABOUT IT! lol!!!

    #15...i know, can't redeem points for cash or prizes. and he gives 1/2 points so poho, huh?

    but i'm with you on t-roy's polyglot. that'd be way cool. kinda like V. ..yeah, i was watching that the other day and they spoke all languages!


  25. Kage:

    I would like to be able to conjure anything I need just by thinking of it. No need money.

    Time travel would be awesome. Think about going back and meeting an interesting person from the past. Ben Franklin would be a cool person to sit and have a conversation with.

    Invisibility would be cool, but I will leave that one for Super-Perv, uhm I mean rayboyjr....


  26. soogs:

    i agree with kage, time travel would be awesome, but i'd use it to fix up all the flubs, gaffes, and unintentional mayhem and bad feelings that i usually cause with my actions/words. plus it'll allow me to maybe finally win an argument with my significant other. you know how you do the typical male thing and just give up after she brings up point after point for which you have no answer. then you figure out the perfect counterpoint 30 minutes later? of course, she'll probably have a counter to that so i'll have to keep traveling back in time about 300x to win one argument...


  27. Rosette:

    I like to mutate into a deadly virus and kill the bad guys!


  28. Rosette:

    well actually when I have a dream I dream I can survive under water submerge and I am invisible....YES my crazy weird dream....but in my dream I usually control my dream...I know that I am dreaming even in my dream...!


  29. Rosette:

    so I hardly have bad dream.....


  30. kuya.d:

    @Leerz - I tell you one secret (looking both ways), I think my points translated into a swiss / mushroom burger at Cronie's ..... Shhhh!


  31. kuya.d:

    @rbj - x-Ray would have nice perks (ahem!). But, as Ed knows, if I had x-Ray vision powers I could've avoided all the guessing by my doctors and dealt with my pain more accurately and aggressively. After the things I been through the past few years, I'd GLADLY use the x-Ray powers to help others.


  32. tita leerz:

    @kuya...i saw the pic. ima stalk brutha man and make him bring me back something on his next trip. and ed, water ...AKA melted snow....no count! :)


  33. Rosette:

    so I would pick to be a mutant virus that can submerge under water and be invisible..I would seek out a bad guy in his shower or bath..or while he drink water omg !


  34. Rosette:

    yes deadly invisible virus that can survive in hot and cold water! ONE GULP guy is goner!


  35. Rosette:

    so how much points for my " SUPER POWER?"
