  • If I could have any superpower it would be to read minds.

  • If I could have any power, I would choose shapeshifting. Not the turning-into-an-animal type, but the ability to manipulate matter and change it. With this power, you could change your appearance, theoretically live forever, and give yourself other abilities. So it’s basically the all-in-one superpower.

    I’ve loved superhero stories (books, movies, tv shows, etc.) for as long as I can remember, so I want to read Dull Boy really badly!

  • Paradox, where are you from?

  • My superpower would be to be able to shield myself and those I love from danger. Then it doesnt matter what super power anyone else had they wouldnt be able to harm me or those close to me.

  • My superpower would be the ability to fly and fly fast. That way I could get places fast. Please include me in your giveaway. I am in the USA.

  • I would love to read minds. I think humans are so complex and different and at the same time so interesting. It would be nice to know what goes through others minds not just my own. I live in the USA but my country of origin is Cuba.

  • Gah, there are so many powers I’d love to have if I was a super hero, the top ones being; flying, telekinesis, teleportation, pyrokinesis(?) and invisibility. If I had to choose, I’d probably want to fly though, that would be epic.

    Oh and I’m in Scotland. :)

  • That is so hard. If I turned into a superhero, I think I’d most enjoy the ability to spawn another me, so that I could be in two places at once. Not really as fun as flying or reading minds – but personally I think I could get a lot more done.

    And I’m in the US

  • I’d love to read minds and have super speed. That would be so cool! Basically, I’d just like to be Superman. :)

    – Jenny

  • My superpower, to be able to teleport
    I’m in Canada

  • Uh, no doubt about it, invisability. I like the idea of being able to become invisable because it would be like being the ultimate fly on the wall. Just think of all the things you could see and hear. The possibilities are endless!


    I’m from the US

  • I would be a mind reader!

    I’m from the US.


  • Julie

    I would have x-ray vision

  • If I could have any super power it would be the ability to read minds. Of course I would be able to shut this power on and off – only use it when I wanted too. (I say that because I remember the movie What Women Want and all those voices talking at once would probably put me into the nut house.)

  • Hmm…if I could have any superpower it be either flying…or mind control. That’d be uber-cool.:D I don’t know how the flying one is gonna work though, what with my altophobia. Oh well, I can dream.
    Bangladesh (International)

  • I think I would want my superpower to be a superbrain as in I was smarter than anyone yet to be on earth. I could create world peace, cure cancer and solve our economic woes. Not that I’m being completely altruistic here, I would get paid big bucks to do book tours and give speeches at prestigious universities!
    United States

  • Erika! USA!

    I think I would want the power of empathy, so I would know exactly how to help people, even when they say there fine. That would be cool.

  • I could have any superpower it would be to create a kind of shield so i could hide myself and others as protection, something like what Jace did in City of Bones.


  • I would love to read minds
    So instead of guessing peoples emotions I
    Would just know and flying then I would be able
    To go anywhere I wanted no restrictions

  • Oh yea usa

  • I would love to be able to teleport. Then I could travel to anywhere I wanted and still come home at night. :0) I’m in the US.


  • i’m in the us.

    my superpower would be to have a perfect memory… the ability to recall all things… such as memories, embarrassing moments, history, anything i have ever learned or heard or experienced… this way i would be sure to learn from the past and live the best life i could.

  • I live in the UK.

    I am thrilled that I discovered your blog-I was looking for reviews of Perfect Chemistry and I read your-I can’t wait to get my hands on that book!

    Anyway if I could I would love to be able to teleport. Kinda like Deadpool in the Wolverine movie at the end. That would be perfect!

  • I live in the US.

    If I were to be a superhero, I would want to be able to fly. (My first choice would be to never have to sleep…but that kinda falls under the vampire category and wouldn’t help much if I were a superhero.) Flying looks uber fun and I wouldn’t have to worry about driving anymore!

  • I would like mind control so I could always get my own way :)

  • Definitely time traveling!!!! 😀

    I’m from Germany.

  • My superhero power would be teleportation because I hate waiting around for public transportation and getting stuck in traffic!

    I’m from Singapore.

  • My superpower would probably be being able to see in utter darkness and cast shadows around to make me sort of invisible. Mostly because I like acting invisible and observing people without them noticing and would like to see through darkness so I could be able to see what’s lurking there… Without having to turn back horror-movie slow and scream like a girl when I think a ghost is behind me and it’s just my towel.

  • Hailing from the UK – hello!

    My superpower would be the ability to fly unsupported. Mainly because it would just be amazing but also because I have horrific vertigo. So if I knew that I could fly, then standing on high buildings and on the top floors of supermarkets would hold no fear for me – if something insane happens and I fall I could just soar back up again! And I could probably do some good with it as well, although I think it’d get pretty cold flying up with the birds, so I could do with a secondary power that keeps me warm!

  • If i could choose any super power it would be to heal people with my touch (cuts, gun shot wounds, diseases) i would also love to be able to read people’s minds, but have the choice of shutting it off also.

    I’m from Canada

  • Ha! My superhero name all through college was The Ice Crusher. Doesn’t that just send chills down your spine?! Er, right. Well, I do make one mean smoothie – and that has to be a superpower, right?!

    I’m in the USA

  • I’m from Spain.

    I would love to be able to fly. My superpower would definitely be this one.
    It has to be a very liverating sensation, and since I’m a person who loves traveling that power would be the best suited for me.
    I remember dreaming several times that I could fly^^.


  • I live in U.S
    My superpower would (hopefully) be telekinesis

  • If I could have any power, it would probably being able to move things with my mind.

    I’m from the US.

  • Oops.

    I’m from the US.

  • I’m from the U.S.

    If I could have any superpower it would be the ability to slow and speed up time. That way I could become the matrix and dodge bullets. And I could speed through really boring classes during school. Its a win win situation.

  • If I could have any superpower… hmm, I’d either want the ability to teleport (my friends are EVERYWHERE and I’d really like to see them more often) or the ability to become invisible at will. I dunno, it just sounds cool! =D

    I’m in Pakistan! =)

  • I guess my superpower would be to blow things up!lol
