    Okay, so I was watching the movie Jumper last night before bed. Something about being able to teleport anywhere in the world in an instant, and having absolutely no cares about money, appeals to my mind before drifting off to much needed slumber. :cool:

    Got me thinking though, if you could choose your own superpower, what would it be? Then I figured a cool forum game would be for you to choose, in detail, your superpower and decribe how it would be used. Are you out for yourself? Are you one of the good guys? One of the bad guys?

    Then someone else comes along and devises your arch-nemesis based on traits of your writings.

    The result will be a bunch of Forum Superheros with pre-built villians to be used in another Benning novel for our own future enjoyment. :D

    Or it could be another in a long line of threads that go two pages and disappear. :eek:

    Okay, so we need a power, and I guess an alter-ego name?

    I am "The Clock".

    I can freeze time, twice in a 24 hour period, for 5 seconds each.

    Klaus shall impose powers on you, one by one, until participation happens!

    First victim.....

    By day, articulate burnout.

    But by night, Orangello becomes.....THE WEED!

    Spewing fumes that disorient humans, but leave animals unaffected, The Weed once used his power against a village, and the village decimated it's Dorito supply.

    Lol, this is funny. I take a break from writing my book and I find this.
    My so called *super heroes* will take a whole book to let someone fully grasp what I am talking about. So I ain't even trying.

    To answer the question though, Telekinesis. I say that because it is the most versitile power out of every power ever.

    LOL! That sounds like a good power there, Klaus. FritoLay might even sponsor me. :D

    I think i would've probably gone with something more mundane, perhaps the ability to alter my mass (and of course, the mass of any object i wish to carry). Being as vaporous as a cloud or as super-solid as an anvil could be very useful. As for "good guy or bad guy" that is all subjective, IMO. My hobby would be relieving certain countries/people of certain collectable items, say nuclear material from Iran & missile components (& a certain jackass's ipod) from North Korea & ummm let's just leave it at "contraband" from afcrapistan & Paraguay, maybe some ciggies from a certain roundish office, perhaps some lovely maroon rocks from the former Soviet Union, and of course, lots & lots of boomsticks from jihadists world wide (always wanted to play with some semtex). Transportation could be a problem until I got that whole "cloud in the JetStream" thing down to a science.

    edit* If that is too crazy, perhaps just the ability to emboss the image of Muhammed on every round of ammo in the world & every AK-pattern rifle. Muhahahaha!

    Interesting. So, you freeze time for 5 seconds, and do what? Steal? Look under someone skirt? Take a few extra tickets from the scalper on the street for your friends?

    On which side of the line do you tread? Good, neutral, Evil?

    Yeah, but we have done Telekinesis to death going all the way back to ZAPPED with Scott Baio, Willie Ames and breasts that did not belong to Heather Locklear. :mad:

    And how can you top THE FORCE?? :confused:

    Interesting. This has my mind wandering a bit.

    I feel that given time, an agency would want to incorporate you into the fold, or perhaps create a fold around you.

    Your nemesis could be that Agency when you say no to the corporate man, and their drug testing policy ;), or it could be a counter agency led by one of the countries listed that had stuff liberated....

    I've had the only government job i ever will, no fun there. I wonder, can they test pee vapor and if such tests might rely in part on the specific gravity of certain chemicals to be accurate? :D

    Imagine the "crop dusting" opportunities, LOL.


    edit*I'm waiting to see if Tango's power involves exploding varmints.

    Hasn't the forum done this before?

    I forever swore off teen movies where the breasts aren't whose they're supposed to be because of that movie JD....

    No, before we just picked which powers we would choose if. We never got into a nemesis. And besides, that was like 2 years ago and we have a ton of new members now. ;)

    I know!! I was CRUSHED when I found out those weren't hers! :mad: I had the HUGEST thing for her and had that pink bikini hot tub poster on the wall in my room. She was going to be my girlfriend when I got to high school :eek:

    There are more applications for Telekinesis than what George Lucas has come up with. I do not like talking about my ideas though, because of thieves.

    Well then, it would appear that your enemy is the entire Empire of Japan and most of the Chinese Red Army. :eek:

    And if you survive that, you can then explain to the Korean ROK Marines what you have been doing while they were running live fire recovery drills in 121 degree heat and 80 something percent humidity. :eek::cool:

    Ah, but they too will bow at my feet once they see that I am ten times the man Long Dong Silver was. Then they will willingly hand over their women to me....
