Sarah, baby, sweetie, we know you're just messing with us now but also is that a bath of milk

In order:
Honestly the immediate response when I say flight.
Oh dear Renee, poor girl.
Hiro, same.
Len, what's going on?
Fair enough.
Sarah's so sweet!
Mollusks are cool.

Oh man, the “nuggies”. Which page was that one again? I remember that one making me laugh so much. The page had the the man-child say he spent his good boy points.

Never mind, I found it under chicken nugget men. God, I love that this comic is very unpredictable. Don’t read while eating, unless you like coating your friends and pets with varying degrees of saliva and half chewed food.

Boring Answer: Teleportation

Weird dumb answer: Exact change, I always have the amount of money I want when I want it whenever I want to buy or pay for something.

So you would ALWAYS have just enough money to pay for something? So, basically infinite money? sounds good to me.
Guest 30th Jan 2020, 7:28 PM edit delete reply
It's infinite money but with a convenience factor.

Also it seems to have a limitation that he has to be able to pay in cash?

Sleep is instant.

I feel as in i have slept a full night every night, the body gets whatever it needs from sleeping in that time aswell.
But only like a minute passes in real time.

Mass/Density control. Harden up to avoid being made dead, lighten to fly or run/jump faster/farther.
Guest 30th Jan 2020, 5:35 AM edit delete reply
Or something like muscle tension. Harden the muscles to act as armor, coil them up to jump further or punch harder, etc

Being able to control Electricity, electric charges or even the force that binds electrons and atoms would be great.
Almost everything is based on that in some way and being able to travel through cables and wires would be the icing on the cake.

The ability to ease or numb anything I touch. Be able to give myself a nice massage as well as to others and have the option of being super famous for having the magic touch and get millions for helping celebrities relax.

Either that or being able to make food and drinks taste slightly better. Similar reasons as above. Charge ten dollars for mac and cheese from a box! An extra two for cut up hot dogs.

So, Hashim's desired superpower reminded me of this little gem from KatRaccoon:
Vanderhuge 30th Jan 2020, 5:46 AM edit delete reply
The ability to always know the absolute truth and to be able to cut through other people's horseshit.
Guest 30th Jan 2020, 10:46 AM edit delete reply
This would drove you to madness.

Super Speed... but somehow I'd still be late everywhere lol
Guest 30th Jan 2020, 7:25 AM edit delete reply
Be honest Doc, is Sarah just part of some sinister plot of yours to induce mass diabetes via overwhelming sweetness?
Lordy 30th Jan 2020, 10:45 AM edit delete reply
Whenever Sarah appears my heart smiles.
Thank you Doc for daily dose of Cutemine!

Hmm... the ability to summon ghosts, I guess. But that’s only really because most of the rockstars that I love are dead and I never saw them in person.
Dechaineaux 30th Jan 2020, 11:19 AM edit delete reply
Um, are we sure that that's Hashim in the last panel and not Xoltan with dyed hair?

Ideal superpower? Tie between Energy Constructs or Technopathy.

Invisibility or pyrokinesis. Preferably both (like Ilwrath from Ur-Quan Masters, I suppose)
Amuletta DelaOso 30th Jan 2020, 3:05 PM edit delete reply
Shapeshifting. Not only do I get temporary access to other "powers" by transforming into the relevant creatures (bird for flight, elephant for strength), but I've always had this desire to transform into a shadowy mass and climb up up the walls of crowded places to get around the crowd.

time dilation basically slowing or speeding up time
Gears 30th Jan 2020, 5:08 PM edit delete reply
Hamon. Both for healing and the indestructible bubbles. Keep kids entertained for hours
Guest 30th Jan 2020, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
The ability to Ctrl+Z reality at will.
Raznaak 30th Jan 2020, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
Dudes. Perfect metamorphosis.
I think of something, I become it.

Multiple limbs? Done.
Flight? Wings and lightened body.
Hardened skin? Sure.
Shapeshifting to someone else? Easy.
Invisibility? Not that hard.
Super speed? EASY!
Electrokinesy or Pyrokinesy? I guess I could grow organs that acts as catalysts.
Immortality? Cells stop aging and resist temperatures from -1000 celsius (even if it doesn't exist, we're never too sure) to one gogol celsius, and pressions from -1 million pascal to 1 gogol pascal.
Multiple bodies is a bit tricky, as it would imply there was two of me acting separately, OR that the soul exist and I control both, and I don't trust either, but eh.
ZX 30th Jan 2020, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
Honestly? Fucking same, Hiro.

Otherwise, another superpower would be the ability to create items and illusions out of air.

Sarah is always so delightful

Third panel, Renée: "so I perhaps I could make Izzy". Might be she should get some sleep and not talk weirdlike

You sit at the restaurant with your young son, he says he is hungry. You agree to get him dinner. You open up to the kids menu, your child is far to young for adult food. Chicken nugger stares at you from the page. You don’t understand. Your palms get sweaty and your son complains. He says he is hungry. Your mind strains, searching for an answer in a world of sweer potato and French fried. You try to order the chicken nugger, but you cannot. The words cannot escape your lips. Your son is hungry, he complains. The waitress stares at you, her head a spinning chicken nugger, her arms swinging French fried. Your son cries the tears of a chicken nugger-less child. In your mind you scream. It is raining sweer potato now, you have French fried engraved on your left temple and you do not understand. Your son weeps in the corner, he is starving. Starving for the chicken nugger.

(ya had it comin' doc!)

Chicken nugget. I understand completely, but have you considered marinara sauce? thank you
Guest 30th Nov 2020, 10:31 PM edit delete reply
Dynakinesis. Control over all forms of energy.
Kabanzai 10th Mar 2021, 9:39 PM edit delete reply
The will and the way, as in the Belgaroth power. That would be.. so much fun.
