If I Could Have Just One Superpower...

My life's dream has been to don a pair of spandex pants and take crimefighting to a whole new level.  When I was a child, I used to tie a towel around my neck for a cape (my parents never thought to buy me an actual cape) and I would pretend to "fly" through the front yard saving everyone I could.  Looking back, our neighbors must have thought I was a real nut job.

Sometimes, I would swoop down and save the Professor from "Gilligan's Island," but leave the rest. 

I think we all know that he was the only one that mattered.   But, if I were granted just one super power and had the option of that one choice, I think it would be mind control.

Why would I need X-Ray vision? I don't feel the need to see that criminals have developed a crippling case of arthritis.  Telekinesis?  Oh, maybe for some superheroes, but not for me.  I just don't think I could make my car or shovel go on a murderous rampage, even against a thug.  And for the record, I am not picking on thugs...some of my best friends are thugs.  Yep...

No, mind control is the super power I want.  If the villain tries to rob a bank, I would just make him very sleepy. Go home and take a nap, bad guy.    Oh, yes, they would have to go home and sleep instead of robbing the bank.  BAM! I'm a superhero crime fighter maverick.  That is me.  A maverick.  I do not need anyone or anything, except for mind control.  I need that.

Actually, I already have mastered the art of mind control. I even control you and you don't even know it.  Are you ready? You will stop reading this post right now.  BAM!
