I’ve long said that, if I could have any super power, I would have super speed.  But, the big problem with that comes in the fact that, even if you’re running at the speed of sound, you’re still *RUNNING*.  That’s like exercise, and I’m not really a fan of that.  Perhaps it’d be better to have my own super hovercraft or a powerful car/tank thing like Batman always drives, because cannons on the front of your car don’t count as guns for some reason.  I’ve started wondering if super speed or a super vehicle would be better and I’ve decided to let the Spoilerites decide, leading to today’s high velocity query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) could really get behind a Street Hawk or a Knight Rider situation, asking: Super Speed or a Super Vehicle?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Super speed. The exertion of *running* is definitely worth getting to your destination faster than any vehicle, super or no. Also the food Bill’s to refuel yourself is still probably only a fraction of however much it’ll cost to refuel your vehicle each time.
