“If you had a superpower, what would it be?”
The age-old question of many a school kid. Most people in the grade school age range aren’t very creative with the topic, but they still remain intruiged by the simple idea of being supernatural, of being superhuman.
If you notice closely, all of these things are really just superlatives of what the human race is already capable of doing.
I was that really smart kid with en expansive vocabulary and an answer no one else would have ever said, even if they knew the meaning.
“It’s the ability to talk to people without speaking and move things with your mind”
I am unappriciated in my time. One day, though…One day.
“Why not something else?”
“Telepathy is more than one thing, so it’s like a three for the price of one sale!”
Yes. I actually said that once. I’m not saying where or when, but said that to an actual human being. In real life. I have NO regrets.
Lots of people don’t take the time to consider the pros and cons of having superpower. It’s a lot more than being able to do something cool that no one else can, and it takes a lot more to control yourself than people are willing to give. Like evry chliche superhero movie, I quote:
“With great power comes great responsiblity.”
Also, considering the way that people are, you’d probably have to go off of the grid to live a happy life, because once the scientists find out, they’ll track you down and test you until they run out of ideas. And that may take a while. (Well I certainly took a random dark turn.)
Anyways, pros are that if you don’t get superpowers and become an orphan, you can possibly be Batman. It’s just like my motto.
“Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.”
Well, until next time.
