View Full Version : Superhero superpowers

What superpower would you choose to have, not like invisibility, spiders webs, flying etc... but something useful in your day to day life.

Topic shamelessly lifted from a London radio station phone-in this a.m.

A few of my favourites:

The power to give my wife an orgasm whilst watching Match of the Day.
The power to make toast just by placing a piece of bread between my hands.
The power to convince my wife I'm not really p!ssed.

Instantaneous teleportation to anywhere in the world.
Think of all the time you'd save that you normally spend stuck on trains, tubes, buses, or in traffic.

One posesses the ability to fly already. :cool:

The power to give my wife an orgasm whilst watching Match of the Day.

Personally, what I think the world needs is “Captain Democracy,” who – together with his friends The Cola Avenger, Dr. Viagra, Burger Man, Paris Hilton, The Web Surfer, SuperCondi and the League of Extrajudicial Gentleman – will bring peace, love and Jeep Cherokees to all corners of the world. That’s what I’m proposing to the DoD, anyhow…

*slightly off track, but superhero-ey anyways*

Just saw the Incredibles on DVD, liked it. Wasn't comfy with the jet engine sucking thing though (ouch). I read through the DVD extra files bits on the other superheros, and I feel the girl super (Stratogale, the DVD says) who got sucked into the jet engine (cape accident) could have been a real interesting character. Ah well.

*still off track, but now aviation-ey as well*

What did you guys think of the aircraft shootdown sequence? It was nice to hear Mrs. Incredible's radio speak sound,well, credible! Wossit all mean though?

*and back on track*

Well, my superpower? The ability to instantly look at anymechanical object and instantly know how it worked and if it was broke or not.

Can I have the power to control the will of others please? Wish I had the power to control me own will, that is... ;)

""Can I have the power to control the will of others please?""

Well, yes, OK ! F :mad: k, it works !:8

Powers I'd like to have:

The ability to forecast the behaviour of female humans.

Being able to assemble flat pack furniture.

To be able to land an aircraft or a parachute or moor a boat without reducing all bystanders to paroxysms of hysterical laughter.

Nosefirst, the "Incredibles" DVD is great, must watch it again.

No one's answered me Q about Mrs. Incredible's R/T procedure.

I can tell you one thing, if I were the invisible man I'd paint my butt flourescent orange. Just in case I was boffing Wonder Woman and Superman came along, you understand.

I would like the power to have all the lawnmowers and power tools within an audible range of my home silenced on sunny weekends (oh and the bonfires doused).
