Regarding superheroes, we ask the wrong question when we start with personal preference of superpowers.

“If you had the chance to be a superhero, what powers would you like to have?”

Superheroes that we read and now watch in movies get pushed into their roles because of problems or crisis. It’s when you add the ingredients of  Crisis and Responsibility then their superpowers become something useful.

Superpowers + Crisis + Pushed into position of Responsibility = The Birth of the Superhero.

    All true, but when push comes to shove, I would rather have a super power that is more adaptable to solving world wide problems. E.G., I would rather be Superman than Fartman 😉

    Good to hear from you!
