Give an idea for an original superhero
I don't know what his name would be, but his power would be to take the hatred in peoples heart and make them face it as what they hate.

A homophobe would live as a gay man, a racist as a person whom he was prejudiced against, etc. They're forced to live as what they hate until they, hopefully, learn a lesson. Or not.

1. The Mirror-
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 12:41 AM by haele
or Looking Glass Man, because that's where your hero is taking the people he's affecting.
BTW, is his power a mental boadcast sort of ability he has to control, or might have problems controlling or is he a "magik" Doc Strange type?

There can be a lot of storylines concerning his (or her) ability to control the switching power so as to affect only those people he wants to affect.

3. SO there's this soccer player who is texting during a lightning storm
and he gets struck just as he's pressing Send...

So his powers are the ability to kick with lethal force and to cause anyone watching him to fall asleep instantly, but he is unable to speak in grammatically correct sentences and frequently talks in acronyms. But he can teleport instantly anywhere there is a cell tower, although occassionally he gets randomly dropped in a dead zone. His two weaknesses are tunnels and people in uniform who tell him his last action was a penalty even when it wasn't.

"OMG, I totally pwned that thief. IDK u can say I was offsides!"

6. Obnoxio has an incredible ability to annoy people in small ways
He uses this superpower to defeat evil-doers in daily life by annoying them so much they can't function

In the first story, he saves a poor mother with a baby carriage from a knife-wielding mugger who wants her car keys and credit cards simply by irritating the mugger with his stupid small talk and weird personal mannerisms until the mugger has completely forgotten everything except just how tediously annoying Obnoxio is. This enables the mother and her baby to escape unharmed

In a later story, Obnoxio will rescue an incompetent Obnoxio-wannabee from an irate mob, always demonstrating proper Obnoxio style

7. The Creole Crude Slurper
An old-time swamp-livin' Creole in the Louisiana bayou eats some BP contaminated shrimp and acquires a voracious appetite for raw crude oil. He gobbles the stuff up from the Gulf and sucks every well dry, ushering in a new bounty of sea life. He then farts flaming methane at anyone who stands in the way of a new sustainable energy policy.

8. Miss Green
In difficult situations she turns a bright, lime green color. Sadly, this super power has no practical uses.
