between two superpowers–
invisibility or x-ray vision.
you can’t turn them off.
Which one do you pick?
When you’re invisible, you can go wherever you want. You are a living phantom–a ghost with a pulse. But you are also alone and completely isolated. If something were to happen to you, no one would notice. And unless you also have invisible clothes (which isn’t likely), you’re going to be naked and exposed whenever you try to sneak into someplace out of normal folk’s reach. Better hope it isn’t cold or drafty.
With x-ray vision, the secrets of the world around you cease to exist. You can spot dangers no one else would ever notice in time. You always know everything that’s going on around you. But will that knowledge lead to action? Just because you can see through a wall, doesn’t mean you can get past it. And don’t secrets sometimes make the world safer and more comfortable? Wouldn’t it suck to end up like this guy:
Both have their benefits, both have their problems. Still, something tells me most of you are going to overwhelmingly pick one over the other.
