Now that we have a legion of SuperFans, maybe we should start dishing out some Superfan Superpowers of some sort so that we can protect all things Geek.

What do you think *your* superpowers should be ? Personally, I think I've already got the same powers as 'Captain Kibble' from the Temps books (the automatic manifestation all sorts of random and unusable junk wherever I am).

I, SpungoMan, am blessed with the power to consume my bodyweight in Chicken Vindaloo. I will use my mighty powers to do battle with the evil Bhaji-Man, he who brings death and destruction to the citizens of Bhunatropolis. Be gone, ye foul bearers of the unholy popadom. For yay - we mighty heroes will sing our anthem in the streets - the great song - 'Tikka to Ride'!

It's not the consumption of that much Vindaloo that's hard, it's the passing of it.

Hmmm, what would my Super Power be? I would guess it is errand running. I can deliver and pick up children "from their appointed rounds" at a speed which "makes the Indy 500 look like a Roman chariot race".

Of course I might simply have to challenge Spungo in the hot foods consumption department. After Japanese take-out, I do wasabi hits with a sake chaser. Generally, I like my food so spiced that it's psychoactive.

My superpower.. hmmm... I would have to say the main one is the ability to create total and utter silence when I am about to say something dumb or inappropriate. It's followed closely by my ability to consume enormous amounts of caffeine and make cynical remarks.

I, Computer Guy, A.K.A. "CG," have the ability to do a "Vulcan mind meld" with a computer or a car and determine what is wrong with it at a speed that astonishes onlookers. I also have an uncanny ability to unlock cars with a coat hanger.

I have a few other super powers, but I think the forum should be "PG."

The whole thing, or just this topic? Ack. I don't know if I can do PG... *slinks away*

Super power? Well, recently I'd say Lurking. But in days gone by, I had a secret identity... and my power? Inefficiently coding inefficient code, of course.

According to my friends it would be the ability to consume Ale's and Lager's(preferably made in England or Ireland) at an alarming rate =)

Hooray! I finally have time to make a reply to this thread!

Officially, Super Flippy's super power is the ability to make the bad guys change themselves into something else. As just plain Flippy, all she can do is whatever she wants to. (One of these days, I'll post the old Super Flippy comics I drew in high school online and this will all make sense.)

I'll take that as a promise I am eagerly looking forward to it.

My superpower is the ability to talk over people's head, which is not hard, considering the people I'm surrounded by IRL. My second superpower is the ability to cook food that only I find enjoyable, which also is not hard, considering the people I'm surrounded by IRL. I seem to be the only person within a 30-mile radius who actually likes guacomole.

Actually, that's another one of our Super Fan superpowers: the ability to declare what is and is not tasteful. I therefore declare that your comment was just fine, and funny to boot.

The Chump a.k.a. the Chumplord, evilly able to be twisted by anyone willing to dish out a incorrect fact with a straight face, he is most gullible of all. For he is no ordinary Chump, he is the Chumplord. His strange powers are the ability to drink three people under the table consecutively, his Hyper-Autodrive ability which allows him to hide the fact that he is sleeping by putting his body into a state where it can act autonomasly powered inly by caffeine and the four hours of sleep it had three days ago.

I already have my Super Powers:

code:
This wandering spirit seems to be everywhere at once! He is quick to supply an
answer -- sometimes even a correct one -- whether asked or not. He is most
often accompanied by one or more computers.

He can touch to correct spelling, touch to debug trivial software problems
(leaving the major flaws intact), and touch to install Linux.

I'll give 10 points to anyone who can name the source for that quote.
