If you could inherit one super power but lose a sense in return, what would you choose?
Feel free to create superpowers. No "all inclusive" ones either Sense include: taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight
Easy. Always pick the super power of time control! Nothing could ever happen badly!! Just rewind it!
I would probably lose my smell. I never really notice it, but when I do, it's away bad things. I just like taste too much.
As cool as super powers are, I could never willing give up any of my senses.
My super power would be to be able to hear selectively whatever I want from however far away and through however many intervening surfaces there may be.
The sense I would want to lose is hearing.
The super power I want is super strength. In my mind this would mean the ability to always be fit without worrying about working out or what I eat.
I would sacrifice touch. I love food too much to sacrifice taste or smell. I need to hear my kids sweet voices. And I really enjoy a good sunset.
By the way this is an excellent question!
I *think I would want the power to heal (but I could see how that might get out of hand)
I'd give up my sense of smell.. I don't think I really have much of one anyways.
My son asks these type of questions at least every few months. I usually tell him that I have no idea which super power I would choose, because I really like being ordinary. Plus, everyone knows there would be too much responsibility associated with having a super power.
I can't remember all of the interesting super powers he has come up with over the years (he's 15 now), but one is having control of gravity. That would be cool, since you could use it to fly, move furniture easily, sleep on a floating bed, stop a bullet....
I guess I could trade in my sense of smell...even if it dulls my sense of taste. But then hopefully I would always have someone with me who could tell me if something was burning. Oh shoot, that would mean I could never smell patchouli again! That's not good, so maybe I should keep my smeller.
I would be willing to give up the sense of touch only if it was just the fingertips. I would hate to have no feeling anywhere in my body! You never said we couldn't negotiate our loss, so yes- loss of touch but only in the fingertips!
I rely on God's superpower. But if I had to have one, it would involve touch bringing comfort and love to others. Having said that I guess I would give up my sight as my sense of touch would make up in some way for my inability to see.
I'd pick the ability to teleport anywhere as the superpower, and would be happy to give up my sense of smell (nose is always blocked anyway!)

Do you agree that world was more secure when the US was not a super power alone?

If you had superpowers, what would they be and why?I'd probably have the power of flight since sometimes when I'm in traffic, I tend to get a little impatient. If I could fly, I would be able to go anywhere in the world in no time.

If you could have a super power what would it be and what would you do with it?You can only have one power. Try to think of not normal powers that would be fun or an unusual power that is very superhero worthy.
