If you could be a comic book super hero, what would your super power be? How did you get these amazing powers? This is my comic book super hero fantasy. During a freak storm, I'd get struck by lightening in one index finger and discharge it through the other, whilst carrying radioactive materials/walking through a nuclear power plant/in the middle of an electromagnetic experiment/etc and then develop the power to zap people with my right finger and suck the life force out of people with my left. Yay!! I'd like it if I had a super power where I could point at people and yell 'Zap.'

The ability to stop time and slow down time to whatever interval you want would be the ultimate power. Think about it for a while. There would be nothing you couldnt do.

once apon a midnight dreary,while I pondered weak and weary,
over a quaint and curious volume of forgotten PF lore-
while I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly, a tapping,
as of someone gently rapping, rapping at the IM door.
"'tis some friend" I muttered "tapping at my IM door,
only this and nothing more.

ah, I distinctly remember, it was in the bleak december,
and each seperate, glowing pixel brought its ghost apon the floor.
Eagerly, I wished the morrow;-vainly, I had sought to borrow
from my posts surcease of sorrow--sorrow for the lost klunser-
for the rare and strange person, whom the forms had named klunser
nameless here, for evermore.

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating, then no longer,
"Sir," typed I, "or madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
but the fact is, I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
and so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my IM door,
that I scarce was sure I heard you" -here I opened the window;-
blankness there, and nothing more.

deep into that blankneess peering, long I watched there wondering, fearing,
doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal dared to dream before;
but the silence was unbroken, and the blankness gave no token
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word"klunser!"
This I whispered, and an echo murrmured back the word"klunser!"
merely this, and nothing more.

back into the homepage turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, something louder than before
"surely" typed I, "surely something at The PF window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore-
let my mind be still a moment, and this mystery explore,-
'tis the wind and nothing more."

Keep watching to see how yomamma becomes a superhero!

We're back!

Open here I flung the shutter, with many a flirt and flutter,
in there stepped a stately danger, whfrom the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obesance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he
But with mein of lord or lady, perched above my window door-
Perched on the bust of PF, just above the window door-
Perched and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird begulling my sad fancy into smiling
By the grave and stern decorum of countenance it wore,
"though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou" I typed,"art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient danger wandering from the nightly shore-
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the night's plutonian shore!"
typed the danger: "nevermore"

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
though its answer little meaning-little relevancy bore;
for we can not help agreeing that no living human being
ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his window door-
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
with a name such as "nevermore"

But the danger, sitting lonely on that placid bust, spoke only
that one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing farther then he uttered; not a feather then he fluttered-
Till I scarecly more than muttered: "Other friends have flown before-
On the morrow he will leave mw as my hopes have flown before."
Then the bird said: "nevermore"

Keep watching for the shocking conclusion of yomamma's wild and wacky adventures!

I'd be a ghost-type superhero. During the days I'm just an ordinary person... but when I sleep, a projection rises from my body and roams the streets. I'd fight crime during the day Batman-style, with gadgets, and investigate crime at night. The ghost could pass through doors and walls. He could pick up a gun or reach inside someone's chest and stop their heart, but doing that would be exhausting and he could only do it once or twice a night, so he'd mostly be a spy. The ghost would be telepathic but the waking person would not be.

If I were going to be omnipotent, I'd want omniscience to go with it.

Perhaps. Or perhaps I was sliiiiiiiiiiightly inebriated, wallowing in the sorrow that is mortality. RIP Battle Davis and Richard Whiteley, you shall be sorely missed.

Why is it that you're always conveniently out of reach when you're drunk? :grumpy:

Hmm...I think my power is mind control (through the laughing smiley? :rofl:)

But if all the members of the sisterhood come together and hold up our size 8 feet, our powers all combine and strengthen, and then we're completely invincible. :devil: :biggrin:

Here here.

Tragic losses to British Broadcasting, student life, Yorkshire, and your goldfish bowl.

I toasted the both of them last night, with an abundance of Carling.

How you coping?
