I'd leave it up to the media to name me

3. Who would be your arch-nemesis and what would be their superpower?

The Justice league would be my arch nemisi

Some hot chick and yes. (Am I the only that finds male sidekicks a bit gay?)

5. What would be your motto?

Bow before me for I am root.

OK, moving on to Saturday Five ... [Wink]

1. If you could have a super power, which one would you have?

Hm, I don't know how this counts, but I'd like to be a powerful mage...

2. What would be your supername?

As a kid it was the Great Mystico. I don't know that I'd still want to use that unless I wanted to put on real acts of making bottles vanish inside tubes. If I could do that I'd probably do it at supermarkets ... more wine for me ... :>

j/k.

I think nicknames and pet names are something that should be left to your peers to choose for you. "Lumpy" does not count ...

3. Who would be your arch-nemesis and what would be their superpower?

I dunno. I am sure I'd make a lot of enemies though but mostly I'd be up against automatic pistols ...

4. Who would be your sidekick and would they have a superpower?

Hm. I'd love a pet spider. Maybe a giant pet spider. Except it would be so unspeakably terrifying ... oh wait. That sounds useful :>

5. What would be your motto?

I like the 100% rule but that's got nothing to do with magic ...

Do you have to be a hero, because i rather be a villain. Because when the name super hero is mentioned usually the names superman, batman, spiderman, are the first to pop in my head and they tend to be the one's though great to come of a little gay and are the one's which are like the standard super hero figure.

1. Umm super power, I would go with being the master of the force since it is the only really overall good super power.

2. As for name i would be fine with "darth ..." something,

3. No nemesis

4. No sidekick because they usually just get in the way.

5. .............

1. If you could have a super power, which one would you have?
I've always wanted to be a timelord, but they use a tardis. Not sure that counts as a superpower.
2. What would be your supername?
Romanadvoratrelundar. I could escape as they tried to say it.
3. Who would be your arch-nemesis and what would be their superpower?
Not sure
4. Who would be your sidekick and would they have a superpower?
A cute guy with a Feynman brain and a DigitalBill kilt.
5. What would be your motto?

Time Lord science is extremely complicated. The interface and relationship between and a Time Lord and a TARDIS is almost symbiotic and it is reputed that TARDES (I had to [Razz] ) are grown and not constructed.

But yes, all of it is rooted in science fiction. Technically, even magic power doesn't count as superhero power is pretty much separate even to the realm of magic.

And the Force itself seems to be science fiction, not fantasy, since it's all about minichlorinetablets or something. Helps sterilise the universe's gene pool... Oh wait, that's the whole Jedis can't get laid thing.

ROTFL!

That does raise an important question.

If Force-power runs in families and Jedi aren't supposed to get laid, how does Force-power run in families?

LOL!!

hm...

(Edit!)

Actually, something not often addressed ... In the future, there will be no illness, no aging, no death, and no poor health; we'll all be pretty much immortal. So if we never get old, we'll keep on having kids forever and ever... ("Planet full error shagging on Drive A: - Please insert a blank colony to continue")

At the same time, fantastic robots will be ubiquitous and AI will have greatly surpassed organic intellect, so the universe will take care of itself, leaving living people to stay in bed all day, bonking and breeding like rabbits.

So ... The future is very definitely Orange.

1. If you could have a super power, which one would you have?
Mind control.... plenty of scope for last-minute escapes from tricky situations!

2. What would be your supername?
Something vague and nebulous...The Visitor...The Wanderer..("They call me The Wanderer, Yeah Yeah, The Wanderer, I roam around round round round round")

3. Who would be your arch-nemesis and what would be their superpower?
George Bush - and his freaky ability to convince people that he is human.

4. Who would be your sidekick and would they have a superpower?
I wouldn't have a single permanent sidekick, but interesting individuals would appear from time to time and stick around for just one adventure.

5. What would be your motto?
I think that something similar has already been claimed, but - the family motto is "Tout Pret" which, if you had met Mrs Grummash, you would realise is ironic in the extreme. [Big Grin]

Wow, It looks like you have this all figured out. But one tiny flaw exists. If you are a sterotype geek then you won't have any one to breed with and secondly where is the internet in this whole scenario? it wouldn't be bad if the world is run by super intelligent robots but if there is no other technology or at least a technology farm where all the geeks can live then it wouldn't be the scenario for me.

And as for the jedi getting laid or not thing. There is one simple answer and i think all the visual thinkers out here would agree. Which is who wants to think about yoda or some jedi getting laid except for you uilleann because we all know you love to think about these creapy kind of things. jk.

I never said anything about stereotypical geeks or in fact any geeks or any class or subculture. Where did that come into it?

There are worse sex scenarios to consider than Yoda or Ewan McGregor. Your parents for example, imagine them having sex. Or your grandmother, picture her having sex. Disturbing eh? And consider this bash.org quotation -- frightening huh?

I think I've just cost you your sanity; I hope it wasn't expensive to replace...

1. Shape-Shifter is first on the list... I would probably just say "Quantum Controll" and use that to get what I want and 'Quantum Shift' the original power away leaving me with just the ones I want though.

2. §†eal†h - That is all you need to know.

3. Big story here that is more appropriate for either a book or an RP Chat... mabey later.

4. I can't allow myself to risk the life of a sidekick... Good ones die to easy and bad ones don't die soon enough but I am not in the position to say which is which.

5. I have many...The top one is: "The body makes scars to prove that we can survive our own stupidity."

--------------------
The one and only "§†eal†h the Fallen One"...Between Your life And mine are Three realities, Yours, The real one, and Mine. They they form a bridge shapped in the letters D-O-_-N-O-T-_-C-R-O-S-S.

1. If you could have a super power, which one would you have?

The power that would be most effective would be telekinetics. This would allow for flight, simulated super strength, super speed, changing temperature of surrounding air or objects, and floating, flinging, stopping, crushing, or ripping apart objects without touching them. Telekinesis would also allow for being able to contain or adjust the flow of liquids and gases. I could also stop attacks so long as I can sense them coming. Size would not matter as it would just be a matter of will and practice. Furthermore, since light is considered both a particle and a wave, I would also probably be able to manipulate light by bending and separating it into various colors as well. So that opens up the possibility of invisibility, illusions, blinding light and blinding darkness. {Can you tell I have thought about this before??}

2. What would be your supername?

I'd let someone else do it.

3. Who would be your arch-nemesis and what would be their superpower?

I would have no arch-nemesis because I wouldn't want to give a villain the satisfaction of thinking that they gave me enough trouble for me to call them that.

4. Who would be your sidekick and would they have a superpower?

I would have no sidekick.

5. What would be your motto?

I would not have a motto.
