Writing From Factor X

July 22, 2011

Open Thread Friday

Filed under: Open Thread — Sciatrix @ 2:06 pm

Not doing a linkspam this week–personal issues cropped up, and I seriously don’t have the energy. I’ll resume that next week.

For the open thread: What would your mutant superpower be?

I’ve always liked the idea of being a shapeshifter, myself.


  1. Teleportation. I WANT TO TELEPORT NOW.

  2. I’ve desperately wanted teleportation for years. (Living 5000 miles away from my primary partner may be a factor.)

    (Wtf, Firefox dictionary, teleportation is so a word and I do not mean deportation.)

  3. I could never decide the answer to that question – and believe me, I thought about it A LOT – until I met the character Darwin in an X-Men comic. I would definitely go for super-adaptability. (Is that a word?) Woo, passive powers!

  4. Well, I already am flexible and a little stretchy…but as far as powers I would want, I think I’d go with either giving other people powers or making force barriers/walls.

    I’ve also always joked that if there was a queer superhero team, the asexual would have the power to turn invisible.

  5. Flying. Come on, think of the fun! Soaring above cities, saving $$$ on airfare!

    • Oh man I would do SO MUCH to gain flying powerz because *__* FLYING. Then again, I am the weirdo who used to get a ladder to sit on top of my closet as a teenager because I liked heights so much.

  6. I love the idea of invisibility. I just… really really love it. Though teleportation would also be super useful too. Kitty’s power would be delightful too.

  7. I was thinking of empathy or telepathy, but nah. Elemental control for me!

  8. It’s always been a close race between flying and invisibility. I think flying will win in the end, I used to dream about it almost every night when I was little, and I still do regularly.

  9. I WANNA BREATHE UNDERWATER. Maybe have mad swimming skills as a corollary power. This would have basically no applicability to my everyday life but it would be so incredibly awesome that I don’t even care.

  10. I can’t believe nobody has said telekinesis yet. It’s practical both in everyday life AND in saving-the-world situations!

  11. I think I’d like the power to heal people, both physically and emotionally. Maybe with some awesome glowy hands or something.
