IF YOU HAD DOCTOR MANHATTAN’S POWERS

What would you do if you had Doctor Manhattan’s limitless powers? Doctor Manhattan’s power is so immense that he defeated the combined strength of all the superheroes of the DC universe. Me? If I had Doctor Manhattan’s powers, I would do the things Doctor Manhattan was too detached to do: make the world a better place. I would exterminate evil, make all regions of the world fertile for farming and agriculture, reverse pollution and global warming, I would eliminate any disease, and I would come up with new technological innovations for people to toy with. To permanently remove the threat of nuclear war, I would turn all radioactive isotopes (either in nuclear weapons or still buried) into lead. Doctor Manhattan gave humanity the means to develop electric cars and teleportation, he could create life on other planets, and he could see the past, present, and future all at once. Since I would be able to see time and the universe in its entirety, I would be able to influence the development of human civilization towards the stars. Essentially, when you have powers as immense as Doctor Manhattan’s, the possibilities are limitless.

A NEW SUPERHERO STORY IDEA

I had a brainwave today when thinking of a new superhero story. I am thinking of making something that is a combination between X-Men, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale. Imagine a gladiatorialĀ battle for survival between more than three dozen superhumans whose powers just manifested and only a select few are allowed to make it out alive. These gladiators will not have swords, spears, or shields. Instead, the only weapon they will have will be whatever powers manifested for them. I will be doing a lot of brainstorming on what powers these three dozen superhumans will possess. I believe this story is going to show a lot of action and psychological conflict. What do you think?
