My Superpower

Your Superpower Should Be Mind Reading

You are brilliant, insightful, and intuitive.

You understand people better than they would like to be understood.

Highly sensitive, you are good at putting together seemingly irrelevant details.

You figure out what's going on before anyone knows that anything is going on!

Why you would be a good superhero: You don't care what people think, and you'd do whatever needed to be done.

Your biggest problem as a superhero: Feeling even more isolated than you do now.

Sigh. I was hoping for something more butch, like super-strength or the ability to hurl fireballs, but this does seem depressingly accurate.

Is it just me, or does the Elastigirl image seem to have nothing whatsoever to do with mind reading? I mean, what's up with the mask, cape, and panties on the outside of the tights? Somehow it just doesn't read as "brilliant, insightful, and intuitive," but rather, "I'm a cheap Supergirl knockoff from a third-rate comic you'd find in a cereal box."

This image isn't ideal, but closer to what I had in mind:

That second photo, isn't that is shot of Groucho Marx, dating from his younger years, when he had a traveling circus act?
