    If you could choose 2 super powers which would you choose? I would choose the ability to build high tech weapons/rich benifactor (Toney Stark/Bruce Wayne). The second power would be Instant Transmission similar to Dranzonball Z or The Warden's Blink bility on Warcraft 3.

    Powers can include anything your heart imagines except be God or any invinsible, almighty powers. Keep it G rated fellas.

    I have often thought the Jedi Mind Trick was neat.

    These are not the droids you are seeking... Move along..."
    I wish I was better at it.

    Shapeshifting also has an appeal. Morphing into a hawk, panther, or a wolf sounds like great fun.

    I've always thought the Flash was the coolest, too. Being able to vibrate one's molecules through slid objects is WAY cool. My second one would be like Colossus from the X-men, who can (/could? I heard he's dead,) turn his flesh into "organic steel".

    Superman has always been my superhero of choice. Bruce Wayne on the other hand was a bad ass too. He didn't have any super powers though, just a lot of money. And I guess Superman had quite a few superpowers so I would have to choose two from him. Probably strength and the ability to fly, because the other ones are tertiary to his strength and flight.

    Now, as my mind is flowing and I am thinking about this more, being Duncan or Conor MacLeod would be interesting too. The ability to be immortal and travel the world through spans of lifetimes I think would be quite an interesting experience. You would have to start out in the middle ages or something. I don't know if I could start now and live for the next 500 years. Life was much cooler way back when.

    See, the reason why I'd be more likely to choose bruce wayne over clark is, bruce is real. I mean think about it, there is no way you can ever be superman because he's just not real. But Batman, he's real, you can be Batman, man!

    Invisibility. Everyone always denies it, because it's the "sketchy" superpower (c'mon, who wouldn't use it to go into the locker room of the opposite sex?), but it would be awesome.

    Jedi Mind Tricks would also rule, as mentioned above.

    I consider Bruce Wayne intellegence to be a super power. But Bruce Wayne is a natural: through intense training and technology he is a super hero even though he doesn't have innate powers like Superman or Rouge or

    Toney Stark (Iron Man) and Forge of the X-men are the same way. Intelligence to build super weaopns.
