  1. I took my top 5 in a slightly different direction of what 5 powers would I want to have to make me the ultimate mutant/metahuman.

    5. The ability to survive in a vacuum. This would allow me to survive in space and supposedly amazing sea depths as well. Thereby allowing me to safely explore the depths of the oceans and space.

    4. Energy Absorption/Consumption/Expulsion. This would allow me to sustain myself off of any sort of energy source and create light or awesome explosive blasts. This sustenance would also aid in my space exploration as I could live off of ambient energy from stars.

    3. Immortality/Super Regeneration. This would allow me to see all sorts of awesome events and in the event I stand to closely to something bad I could survive it.

    2. Flawless Teleportation. A few additional powers attached to this such as the ability to hover in place if I want to teleport into the sky to see something. This would allow me to see the world and eventually explore space since I’m now immortal.

    1. Time Travel. The ability to go back and view epic moments in history, or forward to see moments I’m waiting for the conclusion of.

  2. Loved this hilarious episode, it had me in stitches the whole time. Somehow I don’t think this is what the listener who submitted the idea envisioned, but oh well, it happens.
