They have the superpower of compassion

“That kindness comment got me thinking, and I would probably want to be able to make food out of thin air,” replied @julianandres96. “Not for me but because I can’t stand to think of all the children and even adults who don’t know where their next meal comes from.”

They recognize that ordinary heroes are extraordinary

“The heroes in my eyes are those that give back to society and impact so many people’s lives. You don’t need to be special to be able to make someone’s life better,” opined @melissasa. “Anyone can spread the love and happiness through the simplest ways. Even though some of those people don’t get noticed and are not portrayed glamorously, they are the ones that make the biggest impact in the world. That’s so powerful to me.”

They’d heal you

“If I had a superpower I’d want it to be the power to heal,” says @mjmartinez86. “I do try my best in what I can everyday through kindness, positivity, gentle words, and encouragement. But I really wish that I had the superpower to heal terminal illnesses—particularly cancer.”

They’d be great at multitasking

It’d be great to have Hermione’s time-turner from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but it’d be better if we could stop time ourselves. @krysfit agreed wholeheartedly and explained, “That way I can get my homework done, ace my classes, go to the gym, AND get a solid night of sleep every night!”

They’d achieve ALL their goals

Benjamin Button got the short end of the stick in our opinion. @brandonskornia has a better alternative, explaining that “My superpower would be eternal life without aging. That way, no matter what my goals are, I’d always have time to achieve them and live to do everything I want to accomplish.”
