What Magic Power Would You Choose?


I’ve just started watching The 4400 and it’s pretty decent. 4400 people suddenly appear on Earth after they disappeared, many of them decades ago. They haven’t aged a day and have no memory of where they’ve been. That’s unusual enough but when some of the 4400 begin doing strange stuff, well, things just get a whole lot more unusual…

There’s precognition, healing, telekinesis, causing sickness, precognition, earthquakes, all sorts of things. Some are good, some not so much. And it got me thinking…what sort of power would I come back with and what would I want? Is the power connected to some inherent behavior or personality trait of the person receiving it? Or is it just random luck of the draw (or unluck in the case of the person that causes the plague)?

The 4400 didn’t get to choose their gifts. But what if they could? Would their choice reveal more about who they are? It’s a fascinating thing to ponder on a cold Monday afternoon, yes?

What would you pick? Would you use the gift openly or would you hide it from the world? Would you profit off your gift or would you use it free of charge?

      I totally see you having that power!! :D By the way, my muscles are a bot sore so if you wouldn’t mind working your healing mojo that would be super awesome :D

    Flight. Or the ability to float and/or fly. I love birds, planes, etc. and am afraid of heights, so being able to just float or fly somewhere would be fun. I think I’d just play.

    teleportation, and one that allows me to take people and objects with me. That way I can teleport into disasters and get people out much more quickly :) (would also save a lot on gas costs)

      Oh my GOSH that’s such an awesome power!!! <3 That was pretty much what I was thinking for mine although I admit I wasn't nearly as humanitarian as you ;) I merely wanted to travel to exotic places that I will probably never see in real life

    I would want to have an extra powerful sense of smell. This would let me, with time and trial and error, tell a lot about the moods of people, lying or not, and if a restaurant was preparing clean food. I would pretty much keep the knowledge of the power to myself as I think most folks would be uncomfortable knowing that I could tell if they had sex before coming to work, when they were nervous or excited, and who they hated or secretly loved.

    I’d go with telekinesis. There’s something awesome about being able to throw… I mean… move things with a simple thought. :)

      HAHAHA! Nice save ;)

      • cpbialois January 1, 2014 at 8:58 am #

        Thank you. :D Throwing is such a strong word to use. :)

          But it could be totally appropriate in certain situations :D

          • cpbialois January 1, 2014 at 3:20 pm #

            Definitely. I wouldn’t mind movie so much then. lol
