Would your power work on . . .






you ??


Or maybe you'd never check to see . . . 


Profound to think about.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

- Super speed? Same as telekinetic flying, just faster.
- Flame powers? Telekinetically make the hydrogen in the air around us combust
- Mind control? Control the individual brain signals. Telekinetically.
- Command over sea life? Telekinetically throw whales at motherfuckers, close enough
- Time travel? TELEKINETICALLY REVERSE THE ENTROPHY OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE M8

If you could do it at like a microscopic sub-atomic level, then theoretically there's nothing you can't do. Heal yourself and others, shapeshift, never age etc

"Ironically like the nativist far-Right, which despises multiculturalism, but benefits from its ideas of difference to scapegoat the other and to promote its own white identity politics; these postmodernists, leftists, feminists and liberals also use multiculturalism, to side with the oppressor, by demanding respect and tolerance for oppression characterised as 'difference', no matter how intolerable."

Ben Hawkins could heal, even raise from the dead, but he channeled life force from the alive and healthy to do it.  Sometimes quite painfully.

The TV show was Carnivale.  It was interesting to see such an intensely useful superpower that could only be wielded at great cost, and it was in the hands of a young conflicted man.

According to the Bible, if you pray hard enough and believe hard enough the power (presumably without the strings) is available to everyone.  Still waiting for one of the Christers to turn up with it though . . . 

Hard to imagine NONE of them are praying hard enough.

That show sounds interesting. Seems to have been rated well too. I'm going to have to check it out.

Pretty much. All of my trains of thought always come back to "how will this help me to become God?" Had some toast this morning for brekky and it set me off thinking about how I could perform a hostile takeover of the world's bread industry, giving me a springboard for global domination.

oh.

I should have said spoiler alert.  It isn't clear for quite a ways into the show what the limitation to his power is.

Also, HBO squelched the 3rd season so as a whole, it's not what it could have been.

I would be your first supervillain.

Call me: The Buzz Stealer

I'd go around with a huge BS on my chest, trying to make sure I'm the only one having a good time.

That's okay. I spoiler alert myself an awful lot, and I'm used to good shows getting cancelled. Fucking Firefly.

RE: If you could be a superhero..........what would be your superpower?
I would be Telepathic, like Professor X. I'm pretty sure in Marvel U Telepaths can enter the astral plane in their own mind. So I would heal my Schizoeffective disorder. Maybe it wouldn't work like that as there are structural and chemical problems associated with brain disease. But Professor X healed his son Legion's mom of PTSD or something like it like that. That was before David Haller was born. So if comics were real that would work. Plus telepaths can absorb huge amounts of information in a short amount of time. There was a scene in Uncanny X-men where professor X watched 10 tv channels at once and understood everything. I could use the ability to help others with mental illness too.
