Writing_prompt_superpowerWriting Prompt: Superpower

It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s YOU! Because you are a superhero, and your superpower is . . .? Today’s Write On Writing Prompt comes to us from Arianna who asks:

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I would want to fly. It would be awesome to just take off whenever I wanted, be one with the birds, and of course, I could avoid a lot of traffic.

What about you guys? What would your superpower be? Inquiring minds like Arianna want to know! Leave your answer in the Comments below.

    Invisibility. Why?
    1. I’d get to hide from my parents when I was in trouble.
    2. I could get really sneaky when no one can see me.
    3. If I was invisible, my parents wouldn’t be able to wake me up for school.

    My power would not be flying. It would be, like, um, how about shape shifting? That would be cool! But flying too much can make you airsick. True?

    This is kinda weird but today in school we were discussing the book Savvy (I know its so unfair in the last week of school) and we started talking about what we would want our savvies to be if we were in their family- the exact same subject! I would want telekinisis. Some of the others wanted:
    Dragonfly powers!-venom, durability, flying, etc.
    Tele-powers!-telekinisis, teleporting, and being able to summon a telephone whenever you want :-)

    can I only pick ONE?! I wouldn’t pick flying… I would want super strength or the ability to shape shift.. but I would definitely want the ability to read minds (I’m a very curious person!)

    if I could pick 3 super powers to have I would pick flying, the ability to read minds, or telacanesis- the ability to move objects with my mind because that would be so cool!

    My super power would have to be shape shifting. I love animals and it would be nice to go and be that animal for a day. I could run wild with mustangs or catch prey with cheetahs. I could also use my powers to shape shift into an ant when I get bored in school ( which I never do) or if I have to clean my room or something like that.

    I would probably want like the power over darkness (ex: invisibility, telekinesis, flight, mind reading, seeing in the dark [of course], and all those mysterious powers like that) I would be a FAIRY!

    P.S. Yes, I was formerly Luna. But I’m sticking with this name now.

    If I had super powers I would want to control gravity. to control gravity maybe the awesomess thing in the world. to use my awesome gravity power I would have to have a curse mark and then when i get really good i will get the second state that makes me even more awesome. i would only use my powers to fight crime. i would become a cop so i can do this.

    I would like a mind reading power because my teacher calls on people with their hand down, especially me. I obviously don’t know the answer! He will probably be thinking of the answer, so I could read his mind and show him I am listening.

    I would be able to control time. This way, I could have more time to, say, study, or I could go back in time to correct an answer I got wrong on a quiz

    I would have the power to somehow live underwater because I can see things that people can’t like Atlantis or the Titanic. I would also like the ability to communicate and act like a wolf because wolves are very strong and brave.

    I think that my superpower would be to fly. I have always wondered what it would be like to just let yourself soar through the air like a bird…… I guess being in an airplane wouldn’t count. But flying would be awesome !!!!!!!!
