So, if the mutants from I am Legend were to fight the Ragers from 28 days later, who would win?

This thread just needs an minor change of topic.

If you could have one single Mutant power, what would it be? Why would you choose this power? What would you do with it? Please elaborate on your answer to avoid a list thread scenario!

Great idea, great execution. Flawless victory.

My mutant power would be the ability to alter my metabolism. I would use this to eat vast quantities of steak.

Haven't we had this conversation before? I know I've posted before that I would want to be able to read people's minds, and I explained why.

Although, having just watched the season 1 DVD set for Heroes, I would totally be down with being able to bend time and space like Hiro. Imagine being able to just squint and then you can spend as long as you want getting ready in the morning!

I believe I made a thread asking what powers people would like to have, though it was way back when I first joined

EDIT: Since we are going through with this thread, I would say I would love to fly, but be invulnerable while I do so.  Like, say, Sam Guthrie

I would like to be able to fly with no silly things like planes or hanggliders or wings! I guess if it's a mutation I'd have to be lighter and have huge wings with huge muscles though.

Well, this thread has landed in our lap so we are going to make the best of it. Our every move is the new tradition!

Right now because of my 80 mile commute to get to work every day, I am paying an exuberant amount of money for petrol. I would therefore like the mutant ability to fire an endless jet of petrol from my mouth at whim. Not only could I use this ability to avoid having to buy petrol, there would also no longer be any reason to go to work because I work for an oil exploration company and my mere existence would render such a company quite useless. I would then hold the entire world to ransom and demand a blow job from every female from the age of 18-35 in the Paris telephone directory in alphabetical order.

I would like my body to mutate so that i would have webbed fingers and toes and gills and maybe super insulated skin so that i would be able to go underwater huge periods at a time. I would essentially be a seal but i can live with that. Flying would also be cool, i think almost everybody would love to fly though, the skies would get pretty crowded.

On the subject of mutants. Has anyone else noticed the similarity between the movie 28 days later and the book The day of the triffids. Aside from the different "mutants" i found them to be very similar indeed.

Man I would love to fly. Specifically, I would love to have wings (and.. hollow bones, I guess?). Wings with feathers, although scaly dragonwings would be pretty excellent, too.

I was going to go with my general mutant response about teleporting! I could cut in lines, go to every QC meet, wait tables so much more efficiently, enter high security vaults, leave high-security prisons... but then I realised that I really, really like driving and giving that up would be kind of crummy.

I'll have to think about this one.

However, Tommy, I do have a suggestion for yours! Instead of having the petrol come out of your mouth, it should come out of your butt. It would be much less messy, and instead of spending hours of your day vomiting and not being able to get anything else done, you could just sit on a toilet-style receptacle and do a crossword or get those blowjobs. You'd have to have some sort of seal around the bowl though so the Parisian ladies would not pass out from fumes.

Telekinesis. As we all know, I'm a very showy and attention demanding sort of person and there ain't much showier than telekinesis.

Close runner up would be pyrokinesis, because I love fire.

I would like the power to make people smile and dance. Just, like, to make them stop worrying about missing their bus and what they've got to do at work and how they're going to pay their bills for a little while, and instead, just start waltzing with the smiling person next to them in the bus shelter. You know, with the north wind pounding the clear-glass outside with a wall of snow, and the busses being backed up for hours, and no one going anywhere any time soon, I'd want people to be circling around and casting eyes at each other while waving their arms about and oscillating their torsos or something. How cool would that be, to just have the world dance instead of sitting by themselves on packed noisy busses going nowhere?

That's like a super gimped version of flight. The only rush would be from the takeoff and initial speed, and you'd have no control over where you'd land.

Except I do have control over where I land because it's fucking double jump. Have you never played videogames?

See, the nice thing about my "bending time and space like Hiro from Heroes" is that you can teleport to different places and different times.

I'm torn about this one really. I've frequently wished I could read someone's mind and I've never thought "boy if only I could teleport," but the time/space thing is useful in a wider range of situations.

OR, they could just shoot you in the head and go on with business as usual.
This is a very good point. It would be all of 2 hours after announcing your power that OPEC would send an assassin in order to protect their business.

Still, good thinking on that ransom.

You could sign an exclusive contract with one of the big oil companies to provide gas for super cheap and they sale it at the same price.  Making the rich richer might actually help protect you.  Then, you would just have a rival company trying to knock you off.


If I was a to pick a serious power, it would simply be to control all functions of life and death in who ever I choose.  I would not want to become a Grim Reaper type character.  I would just like to be able to control every thing.  Crank up that metabolism, add muscles, grant immortality, or make some one drop dead on a whim.  I could take 50 years off a rich guy for 50 million dollars and my friends/family and I could live as long as we wanted.  When we were ready, we could still die, unlike some versions of being immortal.

I guess I would like full control over my body at a cellular level as well as control over objects within a given radius. This would open doors such as shape shifting but also telekinesis and the ability to heal people and stuff. It would be pretty cool. I would be an awesome vaguely anti-heroic character who people would tell stories about and eventually have episodes of my life broadcast weekly in 42 minute increments, myself being played by some heroic actor of the age. It would be awesome.

To be able to read minds and play with people's thoughts, both locallly and globally. You could insert yourself into or later remove yourself from any memory for whatever reason you needed. Hi, I invented the internet, and it would be true because everyone would remember it that way. Easy to seduce, easy to befriend, easy to convince people to do whatever you needed them to do. Then once you didn't need someone or grew tired of them or had to cover your tracks you wipe the memories and get to start over somewhere else.

It would also work as a fun way to mess with the whole world. 3 pm on Thursday is always when we dance around like crazed wombats. Plus you could defuse tension and help people and things, but mainly it would be fun to mess with them.

I've frequently wished I could read someone's mind and I've never thought "boy if only I could teleport," [...]

Really?  You've honestly never been sitting in traffic, late for an appointment, and thought, "God, this would all be so much easier if I could've just teleported from home"?  Or been on one of those interminable transoceanic flights, thinking, "If I never had to get in an airplane again, my life would be at least a small percentage better"?  Or, for that matter, been filling up your car at a gas station, thinking, "If I could teleport, I wouldn't be selling my working days for the privilege of having a car to get to work"?  You've never missed a bus?

I wish I could teleport at least once a week, sometimes more often.  Maybe people who live in cities with real public transportation systems feel differently, but transportation Los Angeles is a royal pain in the ass.

Really, I'd just like to blow shit up. Seriously, give me power blasting fists and flight, don't need that teleporting, because if I had those I would not work. All there is to it, I could take the extra time to fly at jet speeds than it would to teleport.

Also, no need to read thoughts, I'd just shoot more people with my fists anyway if I did.

The one power I've always sought of thought, man that would be useful right now, is not technical telleporting, but the ability to transform into a ray of light. Thus I would have a limited teleport and an odd form of invisibility.
