I’m having a very lazy Saturday today, partly because I’m still not up to full speed and partly because all my friends are out of town, sick themselves or busy. So I’ve just sat and watched an old Batman. I love the mythology behind superheros and their evolution. I think the appeal of Batman is that he doesn’t actually have a super power, just truckloads of gadgets, knowledge, training and passion.

It got me thinking. What would you want as your super power? Growing up swimming and at the beach I always loved the idea of Aquaman, but let’s face it, he’s a little average on dry land. I would love to be able to fly, it would really come in handy, especially given Sydney’s traffic problems at the moment. The other bonus is that you could get away with some bad food and not worry about your abs, they are built in to your costume. Handy.
