I’ve never done one of these book memes before, and I thought it would be fun to give it a go!

Favourite Fictional Superpower | Friday, July 3, 2015
There are many superpowers out there that I think are really cool, but I’ve narrowed my list down to some few select ones:
- rapid cellular regeneration
aka super fast healing. This sounds like one hell of a superpower, and one that I would love to have. I don’t know why, but I’ve always liked the idea of being able to heal myself at an accelerated rate. I think if I had this superpower I would do so many things, and not be afraid to get hurt, especially because I’d be able to heal in a few seconds (or probably longer for more serious injuries). I first came across this superpower in the TV show Heroes.
- fast learning
I don’t know if there’s a “proper” name for this superpower, but it absolutely like the idea of being a really quick learner. Imagine watching something once and being able to repeat it??? I think it’d be wicked cool. Can you imagine becoming a black belt in no time at all? Or learning how to draw? How about reading over your school notes once and suddenly you’re a genius in that topic?? (Which would be amazing for school exams- my only hope then is to have a semi decent memory). I first heard of this from Heroes, but it went by some other name that I can’t find.
- time travel
as a variant of teleportation. I think this power would be one of my favourites ever because can you imagine going back in time to visit the Ancient Greeks for like a day trip or something?? It’d be amazing to experience history first hand. And if you visit the Vikings, or Medieval times and things get a little too rough, just quickly teleport back home like nothing happened. My only worry with this power, and any form of time travel, is the “butterfly effect”, somehow change history so you were never born? How ’bout no. If I had this ability, it’d better come with some kind of fail-safe that prevented me from changing history in any dramatic way. I first came about this superpower when I was randomly Googling powers (for people in this book I’m writing) and I liked the idea of teleportation and time travel, and I found that there was a crossover type power. I don’ think this is any big power, none of the Avengers have it, so it’s probably from a book somewhere or one of those rpg’s.
What are some of your favourite superpowers?
