what super power do you want?

8 02 2011

Leah and I have watched a lot of TV lately (well, mostly me).
She’s been nice enough to watch TV with me while I lie in bed wallowing in sickness… (hopefully this doesn’t last much longer)

We started watching a series called Heroes last night.
I used to watch this show with the guys when I was living in the Slate House.

The first two seasons are incredible (not so sure about seasons 3&4).

It got us talking about super powers.
There are tons of movies/shows/cartoons about superheroes.

Any discussion about superheroes inevitably goes to one universal question:
What is the best super power available?

One of the characters on the show has the ability to have her muscle memory learn and recreate anything that she sees.
We watched so many breakdance videos on YouTube at the time that it seemed like the best power to have.

Imagine all of those moves you could pick up just by watching a video…
That would be a dream come true.

But – one of the guys on Heroes actually has the ability to learn anyone’s power that he comes into contact with.

This is my winner!
I don’t know how it could get any better than that.

It’s interesting to think that some of our favorite scripture heroes often demonstrated “super power-like” abilities.

“But as many as there were who did not believe in the words of Samuel were angry with him; and they cast stones at him upon the wall, and also many shot arrows at him as he stood upon the wall; but the Spirit of the Lord was with him, insomuch that they could not hit him with their stones neither with their arrows.” (Helaman 16:2)

? If you could have any superpower what would it be?
