Top 10 Super Powers
One of the most common questions I pose the people I meet is regarding the top three superpowers they would like to have. It gives you a good insight into how a person thinks especially if you combine ‘why’ with ‘what’. You can better judge people with just these two questions; try it sometime. This particular list talks about the top ten superpowers that I would like to have. What about you? What superpowers will you prefer? It is not necessary for those to be from within this list, if you have any in your head that haven’t been mentioned here, feel free to let us know. Enjoy the read!
What if you could run with the speed of light? Before you start imagining, let me remind you that the speed of light is 300,000,000 meters per second. Going from one place to another will not be a problem. Oh, let me add something to it. You can run all you want but you will never get tired; point being that you can keep on running for as long as you want. You could travel the world in a matter of minutes. That is something wishful isn’t it? Speed however is not the ultimate superpower. Read on to know about some more interesting superhuman abilities.
Remember Mr. Fantastic? I personally am not a big fan of this ability but if you had it, you could practically fit into anything and literally mold yourself according to a given situation. Opening doors should not be a problem or reaching over tall buildings will be a piece of cake. The interesting bit is that you probably will not feel any pain if you are hit because of the elasticity and you will be able to shrink wrap yourself around a person rendering him completely immobile although, I wouldn’t recommend that.
8. SUPERHUMAN REFLEXES
This is one ability that could come in handy in absolutely any sport you play. You could save a lot of things from dropping. You will have excellent hand-eye coordination making you a fantastic ball player. You could dodge absolutely anything that comes your way in a fight and maneuver around it with a comeback of your own. Of course these are just my opinions. Can you think of anything better to do with your superhuman reflexes? If so, do let us know in the comments below.
Remember wolverine from x-men? He was by far my favorite character. He was practically invulnerable but his greatest strength lied in the quick healing. With this ability at hand you could actually deal with absolutely any torture or harm that might befall you. Actually, I remember a scene where he puts out a cigar on his hand; that was particularly impressive. With this ability you could actually win the ultimate fighting championship with a scar on your body. You will be immune to any gunfire, sword slashes and random injuries.
Now this is one ability that is on the mind of every other person I have met. But it still makes number six on my list. You could accomplish absolutely anything you want if you have the power of invisibility and it is up to you whether you use it positively or negatively. Well, you could even use it to accomplish some of your dirty ideas if you know what I mean. Oh, on a positive side, you could actually help win wars with this ability at hand. Imagine, no one can see you no matter what you do, isn’t that a dream come true? I know for most it is.
Telepathy is the ability that is supposed to let you transmit information from one person to another without the use of any physical interaction or tools. Using this ability you could actually read a person’s mind and know exactly what they are thinking. Imagine yourself on a date. The practicality of this particular ability on a date is limitless. You would never get into any fights by just giving the person what he wants. You will never have to lie again. As much as this sounds enticing, the ability still doesn’t take the first position on my list.
4. MEMORY MANIPULATION
Who is the first person that comes to your mind when the term ‘memory manipulation’ is mentioned? In my head the first person to come is Professor Charles Xavier from X-men. If you have seen the movie or read the comics, you know exactly how this ability works. You can make a person forget you, mess with their will, think whatever you want and then you can rearrange the memories, you can make a person forget his identity and become an absolutely different person. You can make a person do whatever you want. Everyone will be a potential servant to you.
Metamorphosis is an ability I would really like to have. It takes the third spot on this list. Imagine you could transform yourself into any object or a person. You could destroy countries, you could make peace, you could travel the world, and you could practically do anything you wish for. You could pretend to be someone you are not and fool around with people. You could even use this ability as a tool to blackmail; the possibilities are endless. One thing you need to know is that I am giving the negative and positive aspects to a particular ability. By no means do I mean for you to choose the negative aspect of it. Think positive and do positive.
The ability of flight has remained a man’s dream ever since he first saw birds in the sky. The closest you could possibly get to flying is perhaps paragliding and the likes. But that is not real flying now is it? Imagine if you could fly like Superman or better yet, Hancock. Won’t that be so completely awesome? It is a million times better than you being able to run with the speed of light and it is so much more ‘graceful’ and impressive. Oh the things you could do if you could fly.
Telekinesis is what makes it to the top of my list. This is the ability that I would like to have if I were to choose just one from this particular list. Using this ability, you can move objects with your mind and do absolutely anything with them. Remember Gene from X-men? She takes this ability to a whole new level, now that is something really impressive. The whole concept is so cool and I can’t even begin to describe the applications of this superpower; mind blowing!
