What Super Power Would You Want?
« on: October 09, 2013, 03:59:57 PM »
As a promotion for the "Carrie" remake, they set up a Carrie in a coffee shop.  They do a pretty convincing job.  There are times of anger, when I wish I had those powers. 

But, I would rather have Superman's powers or Wonder Woman's.  There are times when I'm feeling my energy zapped or see someone in danger, that I think how nice it would be to able to pull my shirt open, exposing the iconic "S."  Or, spin around and in a fireball and become Wonder Woman.  Well, Wonder Man.  Ok, Wonder Woman.  Although, in the TV show, she was vulnerable to having her magic belt removed and left with no powers.  That seems inconvenient.  Couldn't the Amazons have made that belt harder to be removed?  So, she was a mortal without spinning around.  Being tied up or in a tight space made it a real challenge for her.  ::)

Anyway, here's the Carrie Coffee Shop Video.  I remember watching the original as a kid and having nightmares.  Her mom scared me most.

My super power would be to be able to completely piss again so urine doesn't run down my leg walking out of the bathroom .

I always worry with pranks like this that someone is going to pull out a handgun and shoot the actor. Perhaps because I work in a psychiatric hospital when someone becomes aggressive or violent I am always vigilant that it will set someone else off.

Telepathy would certainly come in handy at work. Downloading parenting skills directly into people's mind, curing PTSD or phobia in one session by making them forget the traumatic episode or stimulus... the possibilities are fun to think about. I would also be taking a few trips to visits various government leaders and change some minds, literally. Weekend in Syria would be productive. Government shut down? I don't think so, Mr. Boehner. Hello senators, you all think every American deserves healthcare and you will work together to make it happen. Have a nice day.

On those prank shows, I always wonder whether they've made sure no one has a gun.  I've thought it would be funny to dress as Michael Myers or Jason and sneak to a window of a friend or family member.  However, I would only do that at those, who I know despise guns and I know wouldn't have one.

I like the healing powers.  That would be a good power.  I'm trying to think of a Super Hero, who could do that.  Superman reversed the earth's rotation to save Lois.  I mean, I can buy a super being who flies and is indestructible, but turning back time?  Come on...lol.  Couldn't The Swamp Thing put his moss on people and heal them?

There is a character in X-Men named Elixir whose mutant ability is to heal people in addition to having gold colored skin.



Healing powers remind me of the 1980 movie "Resurrection" for which Ellen Burstyn was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. Her character is in a car wreck, is briefly dead and then develops the ability to heal people. The movie is about everyone's reaction to this ability, from skeptics to people who demand she accept a role as a religious messiah.
