Is there a certain skill you wish you could be good at? Power mimicry would allow you to copy or absorb another’s powers or skills, so you could swim as fast as Michael Phelps, direct movies as impeccably as Steven Spielberg, or write as many best-selling novels as J.K. Rowling.
Forget about Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. With the power of invisibility, you could vanish in the blink of an eye using your mind. You could sneak out of the house without your parents knowing and play hilarious pranks on your friends without getting caught.
With the help of superhuman strength, you’d have no problem winning the strongman game at carnivals, opening stubborn jars and bottles, lifting cars, breaking tiles, or performing other awesome acts without even trying. Being as powerful as the Incredible Hulk has its advantages.
If you had the power of water breathing, you could breathe underwater like a fish. You’d be able to scuba dive without bringing an oxygen tank and if you ever had to jump into a lake to escape an angry swarm of bees like Yogi Bear, you’d be all set.
Invulnerability grants heroes immunity to one or more forms of physical, mental, or spiritual damage. If you possessed this power, you would never have to worry about getting beat up by bullies, mending a broken heart, or suffering from depression.
Did the flux capacitor in your time machine break down again? No worries! You wouldn’t need a time machine if you possessed the power of time travel. It would be so cool to be a part of the crowd at Woodstock or visit your future self.
Screw the flashlight app! With night vision, you would never stub your toe on the way to bed again because your eyes would always adjust to the dark. You could also read in the dark, which could come in handy during late-night study sessions if your roommate is asleep.
Some friends can communicate through facial expressions, interpretive dances, or in other non-audible ways. But wouldn’t it be easier to develop the power of telepathy and communicate by reading each other’s minds? You could carry on secret conversations in public and no one would ever know.
If you possessed the power of superhuman speed, you’d be able to run from Alaska to the tip of South America in less time than it took Kim Kardashian to divorce Kris Humphries. You’d be so fast, you could literally run circles around villains and make them too tired and frustrated to kill you.
If you had the power of atmokinesis, you’d be able to control the weather. Imagine being able to summon a snow day and get a day off or making sure the waves are just right and the water is the best temperature at the beach. Every day would be the perfect day.
Remember how fun it was to climb between doorposts and walls as a kid? You could do it all the time with the power of wall crawling, which lets you adhere to solid surfaces, including walls and ceilings. Climbing up buildings like Spiderman and hanging from the ceiling like a bat sound pretty awesome.
Precognition is the ability to predict the future. With this power, you could be the first to sense danger and save the day by battling ninja assassins, fire-breathing dragons, and other pesky villains before their diabolical plans take root.
