And like most comic book geeks, I love to think about the one superpower I would choose above all others.
A lot of people choose the ability to fly like Superman.
I've never liked that choice. What's the good of flight if you don't have supermans strength? If you hit a bird going 110 mph, you're toast!
Another popular choice is Wolverines retractable claws.
I'm not crazy about this one either. I mean the claws are cool and all but not very practical. Plus the only reason Wolverine can use those claws is because of his super regeneration. Wolverine is basically immortal.
(although - SPOILER ALERT - he did die in the last movie which really bummed me out)
A third popular choice is teleportation like Nightcrawler from the X-Men.
Teleporting is a pretty good one in my opinion. Except for teleporting into a wall or the middle of a volcano, I don't see a whole lot of downside with teleportation.
But the devil is in the details. Can you only teleport to a place you've been before? Is there a maximum distance you can travel? Can you teleport physical objects with you or do you show up naked everywhere you go?
As you can see, picking a superpower is a very tricky decision that requires a lot of careful thought.
Let's shift this gears slightly and talk about internet marketing. If you could have one IM superpower what would it be?
Think of all the advantages and disadvantages of each Super IM Power. And remember you can only choose one to be Super at.
Which one would you choose and why?
