Hope he didnt use his power on me...
Teach them how to use them responsibly like I do.
Cracks up laughing.
I would send them off to be taught by the first creepy-bald-guy-in-a-wheelchair I meet of course!!
See, my post on the purity website. Then understand they won't be any grandchildren.
I'm not liberal, liberals have beliefs. I'm a democrat, the only belief I have is that republicans are wrong.
Let's free the market, so it can enslave us all
Given my luck, my children would have the power to obliterate the universe and, just to annoy me, all be female and be obsessed with their hair and clothes. For both of these things, I would blame their father and hide the credit cards.Originally Posted by Kage Kisaragi
I hope I don't really have kids. Having my mom VIVIDLY and repeatedly remind me of the things my brothers and I did growing up, they'd probably be able to destroy the world without mutant powers.
The number of borgish children permitted for the life-form designated as 'Replicant' is twelve.Originally Posted by Kage Kisaragi
Their powers would be comparable to the great character known as 'Jubilee'.Originally Posted by Kage Kisaragi

Now that is how you reply to a topic! lol
Rogue and Bishop's daughter would be called Discharge, and she'd touch people and drain all or some of their bioelectrical energy out of them causing them to either die or fall unconscious. She could then use this energy to extend her own life, heal herself, enhance her physical abilities (speed, strength, stamina,) or discharge it as various energy beams.
I would find an expert on mutants, such as Charles Xavier, and while I wouldn't send them off to the school, unless they want it, I'd require that they have training sessions on how to use their powers for the greater good....like doing the dishes, mowing the lawn, walking the dog, etc....
My son seems like a mutant to me -- he's smarter than I am, he's more mature than I am, he's got more common sense than I do. If mutancy is measured by how different your kids are from you. :)Originally Posted by Kage Kisaragi
Seriously, I suspect that if the average American had a mutant kid, it would turn out more like that doomed Ohio community in Jerome Bixby's "It's a Good Life." (And the TWILIGHT ZONE episode of the same name.)
If you think about it, Little Anthony is a mutant. But his parents, totally unprepared for such powers in a child, have been unable to either understand what is really happening, or react appropriately to the boy's behavior. Could the average human being, given such enormous powers as we see in the Marvel Universe, really keep from misusing them for long? In the real world, could any human child thus be trusted with such powers? I don't see what a parent could do, if they realized their kid could start fires with a thought, and nothing you said or did would stop them, because they were just kids and despite their best efforts, they still got mad, had temper tantrums, and wished bad thoughts against people who upset them. In real life, maybe if your kid had already killed a few people or animals, you would seriously consider more serious steps.
In BABYLON 5, didn't the psicorps find psi-talented kids at a very young age, and take them away from their parents to be specially trained? In a way, Charles Xavier has that kind of idea, since mutants powers don't usually appear until puberty -- he wanted to take these young teens and properly train them in the use of their powers, and guide them ethically and morally to responsibly use those powers. (Or so he claimed.)
I think the predominant theme in the X-books and other books about super powered kids, tends to be, victimized kids with powers, and have parents who are prejudiced or don't understand them, or sometimes are cruel, and sometimes are understanding and supportive. The target audience of these comics is afterall teens and young adults. But in the real world, I wonder if the more accurate scenario would be, parents already blind-sided by teenage raging hormones and teenage angst suddenly confronted with incredible powers in kids who won't listen to them, have a poorly developed instinct for self-control and limit-setting, and are actually a danger to themsevles and others. Parents then would be faced with some tough choices, and from the kids' point of view they might look like ogres and tyrants and pawns of an oppressive state, or whatever, but what else could these parents do?
It's a good question, by the way, because it is related directly to Xavier and the X-Men when they were kids, and the Institute as a genuine school. I don't think these questions have been explored very well in the X-books. For example, Xavier gets along with the authorities (usually) and it's conceivable that his Institute could be appointed the MANDATORY facility where uncontrollable mutant kids are treated. Xavier's becomes more of a reform school, then some elite academy. What would mutant extremists then think of Charles Xavier and his "school"? But what would happen to the uncontrollable and uncontrolled mutant kids if there were no Xavier's? Far worse. This is also something the Civil War books might need to address. (As in, a part of mutant registration might be, removing mutant teens from their homes by force and sending them to a special "school" if their powers prove to be dangerous -- and under those circumstances, wouldn't it be better to turn Xavier's into that "school" and take these kids in, than let the government get ahold of them in other facilities and institutions.)
I'd just hope he or she didn't have some lame mutation like Beak. Hell, I'd pick on the poor kid for being such a freak.
I hope this 911 is for real and not just on tv.
Not even my healing factor can handle Shlitz!
Solitudinem fecerunt, pacem appelunt - They made a desert and called it peace.
If i had a son,i would encourage him to train and develop his powers.With balance,he can do anything he wants.
Hope they have telekinetic powers, put my feet and ask them to send me a beer from the kitchen. :)
Seeing as how I've been exposed to radioactive material a few times, it's possible I might!
I'm assuming it wouldn't be anything amazing though. Maybe glow in the dark urine, or an extra arm.
