So, I'm watching Kevin Costner's Robin Hood and I notice that his vision of Robin Hood as a hero entailed a very interesting superpower. Whenever he fell from a high place, there was always a bunch of hay on the ground to break his fall.
This would make sense if the entire set was filled with haystacks that the characters had to run around and jump on and fight over, but hay ONLY occured when it was necessary to break his fall.

This is an odd, but interesting power to choose. And it is one of the reasons why Robin Hood is so magnificently cool.

So, if you had a choice of superpowers, barring flying, uber strength, black magic, and everything that's ever been said or thought up before-

What strange and original Superpower do you think you would choose.

I can't think of one yet. But I'll be back.

Maybe I would like to have a flawless Arnold Schwartz... whatever... impression. And the power to spell his last name.

I'd like to be able to control the length of my facial hair. For instance, I could grow a Gandalf-like beard or a Fu Manchu mustache whenever I liked, but I could also make the hair retract into my face if I ever wanted to be clean shaven.

Take that, old ladies and workies who always talk about what THEY would have done should they have been set on fire! Show us how it's done, goddamn.

No power is original anymore. Not when Superman can make up powers as he goes along to suit his needs.
