Super Powers

If you could pick any two (and only two) super powers, what would they be and why would you choose them? They can be an innate ability or an item.

Some examples: being able to fly, the TARDIS, shooting webs out of your fingers, superhuman strength, the Green Lantern ring, shapeshifting, etc.

I would totally fly because it would be super, super cool, and I just think that it would be the greatest feeling ever to fly. And then I would have telekinesis, so that if something was out of my reach I could just get it. No fooling around with step stools and the like. I really love super powers. If I was a superhero, my name would be Guidestar. Apparently it's a type of laser? Maybe laser eyes would be more fitting then, but I still like flying and telekinesis better.

1. Flying, because I've always wanted to fly. 2. The ability to make things (including myself) invisible. I say that instead of merely "invisibility" because I want to be able to wear clothing while in invisible mode and remain unseen. I enjoy creeping on people, I guess.

I haven't quite picked mine yet. I think the first one would be super-intelligence, and I'd pick the second one after I had that one.

Haha, yeah, I guess it was a little bit of a cop-out. I really have not decided on the second one. I like the idea of flying, but shapeshifting to be a fly on the wall or a rock or a giant is also very appealing. The idea of having a TARDIS to travel through time and space also sounds cool, but it has to be backed up by something else since you could get in a lot of trouble! I was curious to see what types of powers appealed to other people, especially since I'm sure Brainglers have some unique ideas.

I would choose the ability to tell when people are being sarcastic, as I don't have that.
I would also choose social skills, as I don't have those either.

I have always wanted the power to pick up cars on the highway (whose drivers were doing something stupid/dangerous/rude) and place them (gently) somewhere off the road nearby - top of a nearby mountain, on an island in the middle of a lake - anywhere that just got them off the road.

I would also like the power to turn invisible.

Shape/size shifting and invincibility.

Sexual reasons, purely.


Well then.

LOL Minakodeb, I love the car-moving idea!

The ability to time-travel and knowing everything.

Then I would get a beard and some robes.
