I want everyone's ideas, reasons, and thoughts on this... because I need different perspectives and ideas. If you could have a surgery to enhance some
part of you, and give you a wanted power or ability, what would it be? And why?
I'm writing and drawing a post-apocalyptic manga that takes place a long time after WW3, and basically, the whole of mankind is going mad--killing,
robbing, and doing whatever it takes to get money. Why? So they can afford surgeries from a huge company called AlterCo. AlterCo. can give you the
power to see in the dark, jump a mile high, lift things ten times your size, and they can even alter your brain's make-up in a way that unlocks the
ability to use psychic power. The nation--actually, the entire world at this point--is in a survival state--meaning everyone is struggling to get by,
and in many places, anarchy rules. It is nearly impossible to survive without some kind of surgery, right? And besides, who's going to take control
and rebuild the world, if not an inhumanly strong, altered person? (By the way, there's also Reptilians in the story, but that has nothing to do with
the surgeries). The people who have received the surgeries, and who posses superhuman abilities, are called the altered.
I need many different ideas as to what different abilities should be available. So, that's why I'm asking you, ATS...
If you could get one of these surgeries, what super-human ability would you want to have?
Be creative, and tell me why you want your power, please. If you took the time to read this, thank you
Give me ideas!
EDIT; also, if you were to obtain this power, what would you use it for? Think about it--in a post apocalyptic world, where governments are limited to
the few leaders of little rag-tag colonies, where people are mercilessly killed by those who want a surgery (or have already had a surgery), where
there is little to no law, where anarchy could break out anywhere at any given second, and the world has no leader? Would you look out for only
yourself, seeking personal gain? Would you help and save others? Or would you try to re-shape the world? Tell me what you'd use the power for.
NOTE; the Reptilians in the story are taking over AlterCo. and most other profitable businesses, and they want to have as many altered human beings on
their side as possible, so they can reshape the world any way they please. Have you ever seen Doctor Who? Remember the Daleks? For those who don't
know, Daleks are the antagonists of the show, and they are an alien race who genetically had all their emotion removed, because they believed it would
make them stronger, and they only feel hatrid, and destroy everything that isn't a Dalek. The Reptilians in my story have done the same thing--in the
past (which would be our present), Reptilians were part human, part reptile--meaning, they had emotions and human feelings. Somewhere along the line,
some of the Reptilians decided that the Reptilian race would be stronger without emotion, so they remade themselves into an all-reptile figure, with
no human DNA. So basically, they are heartless, very strong, fast, and perceptive, and very, VERY intelligent, but cold, ruthless, money-grabbing,
So... in a futuristic world, with insane altered people, poor starving people, and evil Reptilian power grabbers, what power would you chose, and how
would you use it?
