Which Superhero(ine) Power Would You Most Like to Have

I've just noticed that the new Wolverine movie has been leaked on the net about a month before it hits the cinemas, and it got me to wondering about superpowers. What superpower would you most like to have?

I'm not going to answer that one for fear of incriminating myself and also being 'too' male.

I picked every option (even the power of "the blue one next to the fish", which I assume is there for the clicking on but can only be seen with x-ray vision). Basically, I'm incredibly greedy and I wouldn't be happy with anything less than ultimate godhood of everything. I'm still deciding whether to use my powers of smiting with my mighty sceptre for good or evil, or just boredom.

I'm thinking I might be more superantihero than superhero.

Cheers,
The God, and not that confusing fella in all those religious books you lot fight about, but, you know, the big high mucky-muck that barfed up the multiverse and that has a super-secret plan, a taste for seemingly arbitrary smiting, a delight in bringing about the absurd, and a sidekick called Adrian who probably shouldn't be driving the Holy Hovercar and especially shouldn't be throwing faeces at people from it as it's bad for publicity.

I too would also love this ability. Oh, and while I'm dreaming, Angelina Jolie too, thanks.

Of course. After all, _she_ assumes you have them both anyway.

That list of "superpowers" is totally useless. I don't see on it anywhere "I wanna be able to get myself up in the morning on time" or "I'd like the ability to clean out the garage when I say I'm gonna" or even "I'd like to lose a few pounds". Now those would be superhuman powers.
