I, like many people this week, have full-on Marvel fever after seeing Endgame, and I want to talk about superpowers.
Now, everyone’s favorite go-to ice breaker is “what superpower would you have” and everyone picks flying except for the one creep who wants x-ray vision or the rogue introvert who wants invisibility. But I want to take this concept and do what I wish more TV shows would do with their characters: make it gay.
Once when I was signing up for a dating app it had an option that was like, “Make yourself invisible to straight people.” And I was like wait is this an option in real life? Because some days I just…can’t. You know? So I think that would be a cool gay superpower to be able to toggle on and off. Another queer superpower I wish I had is the ability to grow out an undercut in an instant. I’m currently a few months into this process and have a borderline mullet on half my head. It’s not cute.
What other powers do you think would especially benefit members of our community? Things straight and/or cis people wouldn’t need or understand (or deserve)? I’m also okay with you co-opting traditional superpowers and making them your own – like being able to fly but also glow like a rainbow while you do a la Karolina Dean. The supernatural world is your oyster!
