The Best Super Power?

…well, Cracked After Hours makes a convincing case:

…but my pick isn’t even on the list. Which is surprising, because it’s an incredibly puerile one.

    There’s an audiobook titled “Playing for Keeps” that is centered around a super power I wouldn’t mind having. I originalllly heard it as a podcast, and it was good enough to keep my interest despite my not being a big super hero fan.

    How about super intelligence? Then you could build a fortune, create lots of awesome gadgets… basically become Batman. Except, you know, without the whole “witnessing your parents murder” and “thirst for nightly vengeance” thing.

    (P.S. More puerile than the ‘invisibility’ guy?)

      JD: My major worry about super-intelligence is that I’ve met a few people who are a couple more standard deviations from the norm on the intelligence curve than I am (and, false modesty aside, I tested out at the threshold of ‘genius’ when I was a kid); they had more problems than you’d think from their inability to turn said intelligence off.

      But it’s not a bad choice.

      PS: Much more puerile.

    Oh, just admit it. Your “best” power is either X-ray vision or invisibility, just like it was for every teenage male.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      countrydoc: the first one would give me nausea if I couldn’t learn to focus it properly (“Oh, yeah, look at the gallbladder on that one!”) and the second one would make it impossible for me to, you know, see anything while I was invisible. 🙂

  • I’d love Mr. Morden’s “what do you want?” power from B5. Why, yes, requirements analysis is part of my day job . . .
