So, if I were to be endowed with a super power, here would be my top 3 choices:
3. Cryokinetic Powers (Cold and Ice Manipulation)
Seriously, how cool would it be to build your own ice palace? And wouldn't it be fun to have your very own talking, singing snowman as a sidekick?
What draws me to cryokinetic power is its wide range of uses, as Elsa demonstrates in Disney's Frozen. She can defend herself, create stunning architecture, and manipulate the weather, all with her one super power. I felt a lot of sympathy for her when she lacked control over her ability, but once she figured out how to regulate it, it seemed like it would be a pretty awesome power to have.
"The cold never bothered me anyway..." (Okay, that's not true in the least, but I couldn't resist!)
If I'm honest with myself, I probably wouldn't use my power of invisibility for anything nearly as interesting as what I described above. I'm guessing it would mostly come in handy for getting out of awkward social situations :)
Maybe it's just because I'm lazy, but I would absolutely love to be able to move things around with my mind. Want to rearrange the furniture? Done. Want to clean up the toys the kids left lying around? Done. Want to get the remote without walking across the room? Done.
Telekinesis is another super power that I find desirable because of its versatility. It could be used for so many every-day tasks like the ones I just mentioned, but also could be extremely effective in combat, as you wouldn't be limited by your own physical strength in manipulating the items around you, and the fact that everything can be done with your mind allows for an element of surprise.
And if you could be invisible and use telekinesis? Your enemies would never know what hit them!
All right, superhero fans, lay it on me. What amazing super powers have I missed due to my lack of knowledge? Would any of these make your list? What super power combinations do you think would work the best?
Thanks for reading (and putting up with my lame jokes)!
