Superpowers we'd like to have

The challenges of everyday life frequently make us wish that we had superpowers.

When we feel like Bizarro on Earth. Completely out of place and at odds with everything ‘nice’ and ‘normal’.

On thosetortured and boozy Sunday afternoons, when we think about loss, we channel the spirit of Batman.

And when innocent women and children are trafficked, it’s difficult not to want to imbibe the spirit of the Punisher.

When politicians get away scot-free, we want to be an incarnation of V.

Rare moments of clarity, when our powers of deduction are at their best. The Chacha Chaudhary activate mode – jab dimaag computer se bhi tez chalta hai.

And when we’re super pissed off, we become Sabu and think of jwalamukhis erupting on Jupiter.

Sometimes we also wish for the company of superheroes. The Power Girl comes to mind.
