If you could have one superpower what would it be?

Alright. Confession time.

I’m a huge nerd and I’ve always been a fan of superheroes.

As a kid, and even now as an adult, I sometimes picture what my life would be like if I had a superpower. It’s really weird to say it out loud but it’s the truth!

I mean how cool would it be to have a superpower? If I had to choose a superpower it would totally be…


AIRBENDING! Aka having the ability to control the air

“Airbending” is one of the four elemental bending arts. It is the aerokinetic ability to control and manipulate air.

Before you ask, yes, that was taken directly from the Avatar Wiki.

I grew up watching Avatar and really resonated with the peaceful Air Nomads and this type of air bending in their everyday lives. And, if this is all over your head, I suggest stopping what you are doing and going to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender – it’s a classic.

Some other runner-up superheroes with powers I’d want are,


1. Gambit – Molecular Acceleration

Not to be confused with the Queens Gambit. I mean Chess is fun but Harmons got nothing on X-Mens Gambit who has the ability to throw and manipulate the kinetic energy in cards.


2. Nightcrawler – Teleportation

I mean teleportation is pretty straightforward as far as a power goes but imagine the time you would save in traffic! X-Mens Nightcrawler definitely has one of the coolest powers but I think I’d opt out of having a tail.


3. Aquaman – Breathing Underwater

Breathing underwater sounds like a dream. Sinking to the bottom of a pool and literally drowning out the rest of the world for some peace and quiet would be the ultimate in relaxation. Admittedly I’d use this power very shell-fish-ly (#dadjokealert).


Final Thoughts

I’ve always been obsessed with superheroes and it’s fun to think about what life would be like if I had some type of a superpower. If I had to choose, I would rank my choice of superpowers as follows:

• Avatar – Air Bending
• Gambit – Molecular Acceleration
• Nightcrawler – Teleportation
• Aquaman – Breathing Underwater


If you had to choose a superpower, what would it be?

There are SO many powers to choose from, why would you choose that one?
