Excluding the seemingly obvious and boringly predictable
(invisibility, being able to fly, shape shifting, telekinesis),
what (serious or humorous) creative, witty superpower/s do you most wish you had at your command and why ?

Any superpower/s relating to anything in physics you'd love to see demonstrated, would be cool.

Ability to seduce any woman I chose would be nice.

Hmm... I cant think of one myself, but I do know that Homer Simpson can tell what the text on a cake is by sniffing it from a distance... he can also hear pudding. That *might* come in handy.

If i could have one power relating to physics it would be to understand everything in the universe. To solve the super string theory and mtheory and prove to all the unbelievers out there that they are wrong and string theory is really "the theory of everything". I could win the nobel prize and get a million bucks

I have this ability too.

I wish my brain could function well without any sleep until the day I die. If possible, I wish I could live forever. There're so many interesting things to learn and enjoy but life is so short.

I'd like clairvoyance, to be able to know what really goes on behind the locked doors in the corridors of power.

And no, I wouldn't use it to snoop on people's sex lives. Cross my heart.

I like the idea of clairvoyance too. However, if I could have a super-power that was somehow related to physics, I'd say the ability to harness quantum entanglement (which would allow me to teleport). As well as harnessing quantum tunneling, which would let me walk through walls. And I would also like to be able to move through the higher spacial dimensions. Indeed, this last one could take the place of "clairvoyance", since I could then peak behind any closed doors simply by looking at it from another dimension.

I recall being asked what three super powers I would want. My response was omniscience, omnipotence, and the ability to breathe underwater.

I think I would like the power of Maxwell's demon.

I think a Being John Malcovic (sp) type power would be divine... the ability to slip into anyone's mind at any given time, and experience what he or she experiences.

Interesting topic. It coincides with my avatar. :smile:

If I could I'd like to have the powers of (or even be for a day) Ororo Munroe better known as Storm of the X-men...the wind witch.

Cheers.

The ability to rub my belly while patting my head and hopping on one foot.

Or

The ability to change history at will and then see what happens [happened].

Or

The ability to refuse the IRS...but that's just too far out.

Well, omnipotence would kind of include the ability to breath underwater by default, right?
