Other than Wolverine and Storm, one of the most interesting X-men to me is Mystic. Can you imagine what it would be like to have her powers? To have the ability to shapeshift into anyone. I know I’d prefer to be someone supernatural, but what if our only option was to shapeshift into someone who’s human? Which would you choose?
The fifty-foot woman would be fun, and yes, I consider her human. ;) Think of all the people you could intimidate. The only problem with that is clothes. I doubt anyone would want me walking around above them with my “stuff” out in the open for the world to see.
Another option would be Gregory House. Unfortunately, I could see crazy people coming up to me looking for a diagnosis for something I can’t even pronounce. What about Fox Mulder or Dana Scully? Yeah, I can see where that would be fun. I wouldn’t mind being one of the ladies on The View or Oprah Winfrey.
With all that power, there is one type of person who would make me think twice. Dead people. I wouldn’t want to be Tim Russert or Heath Ledger. That’s like leeching off someone’s hopes and dreams. I don’t want to go there. Mother Theresa or Jesus, not gonna happen either. Too much responsiblity with those two options. The same goes for any of the past popes. Talk being feeling like a fraud.
Shifting into anyone running for office it out, too. It’s not the responsiblity that worries me. The craziness that’s been unfolding during the race to the White House would be enough to drive me insane. I certainly wouldn’t want to be any of the CEOs whose companies crashed and burned on Wall Street either. I’d have to wear a flat jacket or be ready to shift into a different person at a second’s notice.
So I guess when it comes down to it, I’m the person I was meant to be because I’m the only one qualified for the job. Although, I wouldn’t mind being a millionaire’s twin either.
How about you? Who’s your human of choice and why?
