At some point, I think, we have all dreamed about what we would want our superpower to be. I always ruled out mind reading because I figured it would cause more problems than anything (who really wants to know what everyone thinks of them?), and perhaps I'm too much of a goody-two-shoes to be drawn to invisibility. But flying (with big wings, please) always held a very strong appeal, and after spending much of the last year driving all over creation, I think I'd probably have to go with teleportation. Sitting in traffic in Chicago is something that I would really love to be able to avoid.
But these are the types of superpowers that people in capes or skin-tight suits have. People like Magneto, Rogue, Cyclops, and Storm. People who are played in movies by actors who are extraordinarily attractive and make more in one movie than I will make in my entire life. People who are--let's face it--not you or me.
But what if someone made a show about people like you and me who did have superpowers?
Alphas is that show.
