Would you use Superpowers for good or bad?

I had this dream a couple nights back that I was a superhero, and the allegence of hero's selected me to join, because they thought I was the best candidate for being one of them. I really don't understand their criteria, but hey, it was a dream! I was then asked by Superman what powers I'd like to have. For some stupid reason I picked to be stretchy, which is not what I would pick in real life, and for the record I thought rubber man had the weakest in Fantastic Four. Maybe that's why I picked it to punich myself in my sleep, what the hell dreamcatcher? Where were you on that one!?! Anyways, at first I was a good guy helping the alliance, until Mr. Freeze called me out and said my powers were about as good as Meg's were in Family Guy (She could grow her nails really fast when the Griffin's were all superheros for those that didn't see that episode)... I bounced out of there quick and turned to the street life of crime! Stealing from the poor to give to my pocket. This is the part of the dream I don't get, because the Superheros never tried to stop me. Maybe they were helping look for Osama! I actually would like to be invisible if I could pick a superpower... Do you know how many people you could mess with? I'd definately have too much fun with it playing pranks, but the only drawback is that you have to be naked all the time... So what would your powers be and would you use them for good or bad?

Interesting dream...got me curious as to its meaning, lol. If I could choose just one super power, it would be to stop time. And, yes, I would use it for good and try my best not to use it for vengance, lol. It would be cool to freeze a crime scene just before the crime happens: move the victim to safety, drive an occupied patrol car to the scene then unfreeze time and watch all the fun, lol.

It's funny I think I remember three or four dreams a week, and yes I'd be interested to dee what it means as well! Freezing time would be fun, I think instead of freezing time I'd like to be able to time travel... Maybe you could alter some history here and there and see how it turned out! Then go back and change it back lol!

i think when you back in time or go have a peek of the future, you should not touch anything or deal with anyone, just be there as an observer, so as not to alter or ruin anything (like in kate & leopold, the movie). that would be a cool travel, definitely fun!

Never saw Kate and Leopold, but it kind of reminds me of Back to the Future. If I had time travelling powers I'd definately have a hard time not essing with things, because you could always go back and re-change it!

you're quite a dreamer chapman! very interesting! talkin about powers, i'd definitely use it for good if i got one. about what superpower i'd like to have ... hmm... hypnotic power, i guess. make someone do what i want him/her to, just by looking at the person (now, that reminds me of bruce almighty and baxter, the tv announcer in that movie, lol! evan got the lead in the sequel btw). having such power, i just wish i'd be able to stay away from doing naughty stuff :)

I would definitely use my superpowers for evil. No I'm just kidding, I would use them for good. Well, actually I would use them for fun. I too would like to be invisible. I always thought that would be fun--to be able to go in places where no one would see you. but I'm sure you would also see a lot of crazy weird things you don't want to.

It would almost be like being able to read everyone's thoughts... Hearing what people think of you, probably wouldn't be all that great lol!

superpowers - superpowers
Well, my prefered super power would also be invisibility. But I always thought that included the ability to make my clothes invisible. Also, I could make anything or anyone invisible as long as I was touching it/them. I think I would mostly use my powers for good. For instance, I could walk into any criminal's hideout and steal their money. Then I'd give most of that money to charity. I'd only keep what I needed for myself to not have to work a normal job, so I could continue my career as an invisible Robin Hood!

Hmmm, well I was going off of Hollowman and never really thought about making my chlothes invisible, and that would be a nice addition to the superpower then I wouldn't be cold all the time! Rob from the rich and give to the poor, a very noble man!

YES, flying would be cool... But is it the act of flying that you like or travelling? Teleporting would be a lot faster than flying don't you think?

I am a bit selfish; I would use them for my own purposes...so I guess I would be using them for good and for bad...:D Ok, I wouldn't be that selfish! I would also try to help the environment and the others around me who are in need of assistance

Please, everyone...Don't take this as sacriligious (don't know if I even spelled it correctly, 'e' or 'i'..?) because I love God and believe Miracles happen, but if He were to give me any kind of super power of sorts, I would like to be able to touch a child and have them become well of whatever ailment they had.

Nice dream! If I have to choose a power, I'd take the power to enrich peoples lives, able to take out missery from all men. How ever that will work. Is everything possible in a dream? Will taking missery out of a mans life good or bad, what ever answer you give is my answer to where my powers gonna be used. Have a nice power day!

Thank you for actually responding to the question, I had a few in a row there and thought I'd be swamped with nonsense! To answer your question yes anything is possible in a dream, I don't often control what's going on but what can you do! And I'll grant you the power to take the misery out of men! Are we miserable? I think I've met more miserable women!

Hei, if we have to attain these so called superpowers, we have to change the attitde and living envirment, metal state, thoughts and deeds. If we lost the so called abilities, hten the power will too lose. Its need hard practse to use this for evil, while we do not think of evil if we didnt developed the for doing evil. Our mind will clear from negative thoughts when we develops this. So

I am torn with my super powers that i would like to have, I really would like to learn how to fly, I mean, it would be fun to have the super power of flying, but it would also be nice to have telepathic powers, or be clairvoyant, I mean like more than just being a psychic. I would not use the powers for bad, I would use them for good, but mostly to protect myself and my family only.

How nice of you! Protect the family! I think that flying would be awesome... Think how much you'd save on gas and plane tickets! And if you were ever stuck in a burning building you could save everybody!

I think that whatever my power was I would use it for evil first!! Stuff for myself you know. After that I like to think that I woiuld use my powers for good and to help others. I think that I would be happy with any power that I got, since I have none now it would be a step up! Invisibility would be cool and so would the ability to freeze time. Superhuman strength and speed would both be nice to have.

Of course if I was blessed with superpower then I would have done something really cool. There are loads of things to develop and improve. I wud ve used it against crime , time and natural disasters.
