I would like to thank Lisa A. from the Life of an El Paso Woman blog for nominating me for this challenge. As many of you know, Lisa is a good friend and we’re blog buddies—more like brother and sister. Go take a look at her blog for music, stories about life around El Paso and interviews with other bloggers (she even interviewed me).
Here are the rules (wait. Challenges now have rules?!?) for this challenge:
- Name the creator of this tag. That would be FarahEdz from The Girl With Coffe’ blog.
- Use the tag image above.
- Thank your superhero nominator. Lisa A., thank you!
- Which or what superpower would you want and why?
- Please note that you are not under any obligation to participate. Certainly makes nominating anyone (or not nominating anyone) easier.
As a kid, I read lots of comic books. It was nothing to go down to the drugstore and plunk down some money for a couple comic books. I used to love the artwork and the stories. I can remember reading ones about the superheroes they make movies about today: Batman, Superman, The X-Men, Iron Man, Captain America and others. When I first started reading them, they even had comic books that were westerns, so I would read those as well. I was such a fan of superheroes, I would watch the Superfriends cartoon on Saturday mornings, back when there were actual Saturday morning cartoons. So I’ve seen a lot of superheroes.
I put some thought into what each of those heroes superpower was. Superman had a total package: he could fly, he was fast, and powerful. One of the more interesting superheroes to me was Storm (aka Ororo Munroe) of the X-Men. Storm had the ability to control the weather, which is something I’d like to be able to do when the temperature climbs into the mid-90s with high humidity. Coincidentally, that type of weather has been hanging around here the last three days (though it is supposed to get cooler tomorrow).
The reason why I would like to have that superpower isn’t necessarily to have perfect weather every day of the year. That would be nice, but I do like the change of the seasons. What I don’t like is when it gets too hot, or too cold for any long period of time. I’d control the weather so that if there is a drought, I can bring much needed rain to the area. If an area wants a white Christmas, I can give them snow. I would most definitely not have extremely hot days, so I could lower the temps so that there would be balmy breezes while keeping the sunshine around. I could also prevent hurricanes and tornadoes, which I would find useful. I forgot to mention that Storm also has the ability to fly (does that count as two superpowers)?
Any blogger who reads this post should feel free to participate, but as stated above in the rules, you are under no obligation to do so.
