If I had a ring forged by the Dark Lord Sauron for every time I dreamed of this I would be the richest Asgardian in Gotham… Seriously, every true geek dreams of waking up with the powers of their favorite comic book character. That’s why I love today’s WordPress Prompt: “If you were one part human, two parts something else, what would the other two parts be?
My answer: One Part Human, One Part Mutant, and Part of the Justice League. My reasoning may be unorthodox, but that’s why I’m “The Uncustomary Housewife” and not “The Normal Housewife”… Enjoy!
I want Professor Xavier’s Telekinetic Mind Control. Mind control is a huge deal; I don’t plan to eliminate harmless freewill from people with it. But imagine this “9/11 scenario”; with Professor X’s mind control I could have manipulated the minds of the hijackers. I could have stopped 9/11, and countless other tragedies. I respect the way the Professor uses his ability, so I plan to follow in toe.
Wolverine’s animal-keen senses and healing powers; which allow him to recover from virtually any wound, disease, or toxin at an accelerated rate. Additionally, I want the ability to heal others. I could spend my life as a traveling humanitarian, and thanks to my rapid healing ability I could visit dangerous places; Papua New Guinea, Syria, Swat Valley, etc… with no fear of personal injury or sickness. I see a cure for cancer, lupus, HIV, and other diseases on the horizon. (Coffey from The Green Mile could do this.)
Just as the Avengers have Captain America I believe the Justice League needs a patriotic member alongside Wonder Woman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and the others. I’m nominating myself, and with my mutant powers I am confident that I would be a perfect fit.
With these powers I will have to remember that “with great power comes great responsibility” so I will have to trust that my Spidy Senses will always lead me in the right direction. Maybe I can make the world a better place…
