On day two of this 30 Day Life Challenge…
Who’s Your Favorite Superhero?
June 2, 2016 marks the first day of the Philadelphia Wizard World Comic Con. So we realize, not everyone lives in Philly. But it got us thinking… with the multibillion dollar business that Marvel is doing with superhero movies, most people have some interest in the lore of superhuman abilities. Who is your favorite superhero and why?
Better yet, if you could have any super power, what would it be? Why? It’s fun to think about what we could do if we had super strength or x-ray vision or the ability to read people’s thoughts or walk through walls. What would you do if you could take advantage of one of these amazing talents? Would you use your power to make money… to benefit the poor… to build a legacy… to create…?
What’s Your Super Power?
Now we dare you, we double dare you, to consider what your super power is right now. Don’t give us that look… we all have one. An ability to do something that other people wish they could do. Can you cross your eyes until your pupils disappear? Can you fold your tongue over three times? Can you bend your joints at odd angles? Can you rhyme super fast without getting tongue tied? Can you see how things work without reading the directions? Create a pattern out of nothing? Piece words into beautiful sentences that make people laugh or cry? Parallel park perfectly every time? The questions could go on forever, because there are no limits to the potential for your personal powers. Take a moment today and think about what you can do that not so many other people can.
Send us a line with your fictional super power and your real super talent!
