Favorite Superpower

You're right, Reader: superpowers are not books. But because this week's review book is about superpowers, we're picking our favorites of those.

Mine is telekinesis. I wanted the ability to move things with my mind as soon as I saw the pilot episode of The Adventures of Alex Mack on Nickelodeon. Does this have something to do with the disastrous state of my room at any given point in my childhood/adolescence, and my unwillingness to get up and clean it? Perhaps.

But wouldn't it be nice if, at the end of a hard work day, when you collapse on the couch and glance across the room just to notice that you left your drink on the kitchen counter, instead of getting up to go retrieve it, you could just think it over to you? Or, you know, use your powers for good, like freeing people trapped under an overturned bus or something. Like some kind of superhero or whatever. Psh.

I just want to freakin' fly.  As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be able to fly.  I could go wherever I wanted, whenever I wanted and do it ten times as fast as everyone else.  I could literally lay on a cloud (ok, it would be cold, but it would be SO COOL). 

On the superhero side of it, I could save people falling from buildings and fly into buildings that are on fire that firemen couldn't get to or what not.  I could do all sorts of stuff.

But mainly, I would be able to FLY and see everything and go anywhere and... and... IT WOULD JUST BE SO COOL!

  1. Normally I would say teleportation. I hate being late, and I've always had really long commutes to work. Life would be so much easier if I could appear in a place. However, I also really like telekinesis. So really, I would want to have the ability to do magic so I can do all sorts of things (like teleport, move objects around the room, and fly) with just a wand like in Harry Potter.
