Or what about . . .

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's . . . you!

It's Monday, which means we've got a writing prompt for you. And today I want to know:

If you could have a super power, what would you want it to be? And what's the first thing you would do with this newfound ability?

    If I had a superpower, I would want to be able to read and control people’s minds. Sometimes when people look at me, I can’t read their expression, so why would i not want to be able to read their mind and see what they were thinking? And if I could control people’s minds, then i would basically be able to decide what people think of me, and other thing that they would normally decide on their own.

    I would say invisablity powers because, I would be able to sneak up on people behind them and spook them. It will be cool because, I have always sneak up on people and spook them some time, so that is why I would pick invisable powers and never to be seen.

    I think that the best ability would be able to make no one in the world able to lie, because I think a lot of problems would be stopped if people weren’t able to lie.

    I was actually asked this question the first week of my online writing class two years ago. I decided that I would be able to fly, control time, and become invisible. I’ve actually got a story about that going; she’s pretty much my alter ego.
    Defy gravity!

    If I had a super power it would probably be to be able to be abgle to turn into anything I want to be(animalk, vampire, etc.). The first thing I would do is write a story about it. What a great story I could make out of that!!!

    What superpower would I love to have?
    Well…
    I think, if I could have any superpower out there, I’d probably pick the ability to manipulate and absorb energy. Then I could just touch somebody who was doing something bad and suck out all their energy.

    I would so want to be able to transform into any animal. Then I could run at inhuman speed, jump far and high, plus find out what goes on in animals’ minds.

    Is it allowed for me to have two super powers? I mean,I want to have the ability to turn invisible and I would also want the ability to fly! I would want to be invisible so if I get really embarrassed I can just disappear! Also, I’d want to fly so that if want to go somewhere, I can just start flying. Also, if I’m invisible,I can walk through walls and when a movie comes out,I can see it for free!

    If had a super power i would be able to turn transparent/invisible. I would probably using my power to complete one of my life long goals: to scare the pants off of my sister. Then I would use my power to get to class faster and to see what is in the teacher’s lounge. Then when the Percy Jackson movie comes out, I could go to that for free. Plus i could walk through walls and stuff
