Articles like this are guaranteed to get your attention because who doesn't want to know about 5 Superpowers Science Will Give Us in Our Lifetime.
If you review the list you'll see comic book heroes like Wolverine, Spiderman, Ironman, Jean Grey and Sue Storm listed along with powers that they have you and you may one day get. If you ignore the insouciant tone of the writing you can see that there is some pretty cool stuff coming down the pike.
But I can't help but wonder, what superpowers do I really want and do I have to settle for just one. Why can't I try to gain three or four. Do I have to promise to be good. Must I take an oath to use the powers for the common good.
Hmmm.... The possibilities are endless.
