What superpower would you like to have?

Have you ever dreamed of being a superhero or superheroine? I think many of us have at one point or another. Whenever I have a hard day, some superpowers could come in handy. Like if I have to wait in line for a long time, maybe it would be nice if I could fast forward time until that point? Or in the middle of a negotiation, wouldn’t it be great if I could read someone’s mind? I could think of a million uses for superpowers, and I’m sure that just even having a few would make my life so much more interesting!

Ever since I was a little girl watching the original Superman movies and Wonder Woman television series, I’ve been attracted to the superhero story. It’s not because I like the idea of a superhuman race … I just like the idea of trying to do right in this world. I like the idea of heroes and heroines, even if they are flawed. I feel like we could use more of that in modern times.

So, as a lead up to the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, I thought it would be fun to take a superhero quiz. And you don’t even have to be up on comic books or movies to like this one: What Should Your Superpower Be? Let me know below what you think of your result!
