You know, I had always thought mind control would be the best superpower to have. It probably still is. Along with self-healing. Or time travelling. Or the power to see the future.
Ooh there’s new powers i’ve never heard of:
omnifabrication- the ability to invent anything.
omnimanipulation- the ability to manipulate anything and everything- time/space, objects, mind, life/death, etc. now that’s just cheating! lol
But I’m thinking the power of “luck” would be cool too. It’s a power you can’t directly control, but shit, it sure would be nice to be “lucky” for a change.
Cool thought, I might go with superluck also. The problem with any superpower (or ability) is that we tend to use it to its maximum and it becomes a burden. But superluck isn’t controllable, it isn’t a conscious action, so it wouldn’t be a burden.
The regular superpowers would end up being more responsibility. Like in the movie Hancock where everyone expects him to stop crime & save the world but it’s too much so he spirals into depression & alcoholism. The one realistic superhero movie.
But superluck wouldn’t carry any responsibility or obligation. It would just happen by some unknown force. So you just do your own thing, only things would turn out better. Yeah man thats for me.
lol yeah, i wasn’t thinking responsibility (like i’ll be honest, i wouldn’t care to be a superhero and be burdened into helping everyone, plus i’d like to keep my superpower hidden so it doesn’t get exploited). also, NO ONE ever fucking helped me in life, so WTF would I spend my last few years being burdened by helping everyone else? I want to relax and enjoy life for once. I’d sip on some coconuts in Hawaii, watching the waves. I’d use superluck to just chill, enjoy life, finally have good things happen to me instead of always bad things happening.
i’ll be selfish for once. my whole life was such a nice and good person, always helping others. and did anyone fucking help me? or appreciated it without taking advantage of me? fuck no. so if i have superpowers, i won’t feel obligated into helping shitty humans. that doesn’t mean i wont ever help out anyone. but to be expected to do it? no way. it’s like winning the lottery. if you win, you NEVER tell anyone. if ppl find out about your ability, ppl will want to use you. and then the really bad ppl will kidnap you and you your powers for their own devious plans. but superluck won’t let that happen. if someone wants to kidnap you or hurt you, luck will allow you to escape, or a brick fall on the perp’s head killing him. haha.
but anyway, going back to luck, yes that’s one superpower that you don’t actively control, that’s sort of why i picked it. also bc my own life has been so rough, always full of shit luck, and so tired of some people always having great luck despite not deserving of it, that i want superluck in my life.
also, the active powers usually require manipulation, which i suppose could run into some moral dilemmas (at least, for those who have morals).
Oooh, one caveat though. Because we can’t control Superluck, then we can’t control how much attention that luck will give us. I don’t want to wind up on national television, and then bad ppl come after me, or have my life and privacy taken away and get snooped on like they do to all ppl who make the news (or social media).
That kind of attention will only draw in evil ppl who want to exploit you and your powers.
ah well, i guess there’s a drawback to every superpower.
but whatever, i want a superpower. i need an upper hand in this life, cuz this life i have now SUCKS
ah…one can dream and wish… >.<
lol yeah I agree superpowers are like the lottery… keep it quiet or humans will make your life 100x worse than before.
Superluck would ideally figure that into the equation. As long as it’s not one of those sneaky traps like that story The Monkeys Paw, if we assume that superluck really has your best interests at heart then it would help you keep a low profile. The paparazzi and news cameras would conveniently go to the wrong address and fall off a cliff.
I think you & me have the same general background: NOBODY ever helped us so we wish for once we could feel what it’s like to stop struggling and let someone else take over. And since I gather you’re not a firm believer in a heavenly father who fixes everything either, that leaves us wishing for a superpower that takes that role. Superluck would be like the protector we never had. Sit back and enjoy umbrella drinks in Waikiki for once in your life cuz the waiter says someone took care of the bill (even if it’s just superluck making the waiter make a mistake in your favor).
you’re right, i don’t believe in an imaginary sky god, especially not one that is so cruel to let MILLIONS of humans, children suffer from starvation, poverty, etc. if God knows all, then WTF does he let kids starve to death? or allow rape and murder and all that shit? just doesn’t make sense to me. unless God is a dick.
ooh The Monkey Paw, that was a great episode. i love sci fi shows. i guess we are pretty similar eh?
i’ve never been loved or cared for, had to take care of myself since i was 7 yo, been a ROUGH fucking life. and yeah, i wish i could be taken care of for once. but i have no SO, and my health is wrecked from childhood poverty and malnutrition and a car accident, i have tons of health issues and mental issues, so i’m fucked.
so yeah for fucking ONCE i would like to be taken care of and have a happy relaxing life, free from worries and anxieties and lack of money problems.
right, bc we don’t believe in a sky god, we have to imagine something else. i mean obv superpowers don’t exist but damnit, i sure would fucking love to have some so my life isn’t so fcuking awful. and for once to have a NICE life.
THIS is why I am so fucking depressed. Bc there is no magic or superpowers to make my life better. Real help would mean at least 2M USD dropping from the sky into my lap. Oh, and not right before I die bc that would be like the Monkey Paw. Or like Alanis Morrissette’s song “Isn’t it ironic…”
But you know what? I feel like with MY LUCK, that that is just what’s going to happen. That the MOMENT my life actually turns good, or the MOMENT i am actually happy and want to live, is exactly when i’ll die. knowing my shit ass luck, i feel like this is going to happen. -_-
Exactly! What benevolent god would invent birth defects & rape & cruelty? The world is one big failure and we’re supposed to repent for being born into it?
Scifi & fantasy are awesome, those are the only shows & movies I can really enjoy because they take me out of reality. Sorta like wishing for superpowers, it’s a nice fantasy but it aint gonna happen in this lifetime.
Flying would be nice though, wouldn’t change anything but it would be nice. If you want a laugh, go to youtube and search “Flying Couch Potato Man” now that’s something that would keep me sane. Although you’d have to be kinda insane to do it.
yes, i used to love reading and watching scifi and fantasy movies to take me to new world, better than this world. but sadly, watching movies now doesn’t really hit the spot like they used now. i mean bc now i feel like i’m hopeless and my life will never get better. back then, i was young, healthy, full of fighting spirit, and thought i could get myself out of poverty and all that. but then i got sick…and that was the end of my hopes and dreams. everything is now so fucking hard to do, bc i’m always sick, fatigued, can’t sleep, can’t breathe, can’t digest food, etc. etc. one problem after another after another. and i can’t even fucking end it. how fucked up is this shit?
yea super luck would be nice.
and it’s just not fair how i have had to suffer SO much, and still suffering, while most ppl have had great lives, had been loved and nurtured and taken care of, and had all the fcuking opportunities I never had. and those are the same fuckers that say shit like “just think positive” and “everything happens for a reason” bc THEY’VE never had anything bad happen to them.
anyway, yes, i am angry and bitter that i have to suffer so much, and still suffering. fuck this shit world.
