Mr. Matt Fantastic

A few years ago, a friend ad I discussed which superpower we wanted. After discarding the basics: flight, invisibility, strength, etc., we both decided on healing. I was even OK with just being able to heal others. I think it would be more interesting. We differed because she would heal people and they would not know it was hurt and I would shout it from the rooftops.

Before and after that, I have considered just about every power known to comic book writers. They would all be cool, and some, like Wolverine's invulnerability, Green Lantern's power ring or Spidey's ability to walk on walls, would be totally awesome.

Until this morning, though, I had never considered how handy it would be to be able to stretch like Mr. Fantastic, Plastic Man, Elongated Man and the like.

Nothing bad happened. I just reached for a grab bar and was like an inch short so I had to move to grab it. I did and transferred fine. No falling.

But I now want to be Mr. Fantastic, well, a stretchable Mr. Fantastic. I already am fantastic.

The power of healing is a great choice. I also like the idea of flight or teleportation, perhaps.

I would settle for the power of being able to sing really well, though. Or make it rain...or, stop raining.

Wow. Clearly, I am not ready to choose. But I do think healing might be the best.
