HEROES - Why No Power Is Better

Just now I watched “Heroes” the tv series in Star World. For the benefit of those not watching, “Heroes” is a new series very much like X-man where human were said to evolve to the point that they have super power.

Don’t worry, even though I’m a big fan, I’m not going to detail the story for you. In fact, I’m going to attempt giving reasons as to why it is always better not to have super power.

1) Immortality

  • The character Claire just simply cannot die as long her brain is attached. She will just heal whenever sustain injury, minor or fatal.
  • My reason – Do you think if we are immortal we will value our life. Sooner or later, we will see other human’s life is just as meaningless. “People die.. so what? I cannot die”

2) Ability to walk through wall

  • The character DL, is able to make any part of his body pass through objects. He can even take someone else with him
  • My reason – If he can go through object. I think during his first attempt, he will sunk straight to the earth core. There’s no ladder to climb up. Died at first attempt hehe

3) Invisibility

  • There is this British guy, I forget his name. who is invisible.
  • My reason – Master Peeping Tom. No argument there

4) Hearing other people’s thought

  • The ex-policeman can actually hear people’s thought.
  • My reason – People usually not so nice inside. He or she may be smiling, but inside they cursed and wildly annoying if heard. The ex-policeman will only end up not having any friends and hate mankind as a whole if craziness didn’t get to him first

5) Ability to manipulate nuclear energy

  • The character Ted, produce nuclear energy
  • My reason – Self explanatory…

6) Super Strength

  • The character Jessica, is super strong. She was seen tearing people apart like they were paper.
  • My reason – Will be permanently work as low level worker. There’s not much work in the management level that require super strength

7) Ability to talk to machine

  • The character Micah, sons of DL and Jessica has the ability to control and manipulate machine. He once rigged the poll and also taking out money from ATM just by touching.
  • My reason – In the end, He will find it super boring to have conversation with them machine and end up still using IRC to chat with people hehe

8) Ability to absorb other’s super power

  • Both the character Peter and Sylar is able to absorb. One naturally, another by killing others and studied them.
  • My reason – All the above ehehe

There’s a reason for everything. Reason as to why we have limits. By having limits, we actually know what to aim for, and the happiness that come with the satisfaction once the aim achieved will keep us going. Imagine.. those who cannot die, What will be the purpose of his life? work? no need as he doesn’t need food. family? he will only see them dying one by one. In time.. he will give it up entirely. knowledge? praying? nah!

However.. no harm wishing for the super power. But I think what we have right now is so much better and satisfying

  • Self healing – consume more Vitamin K
  • Walk through wall – use door
  • Invisibility – People are so self absorbed they hardly notice other people anyway
  • Hearing people thought – wait until he “ngigau” hehe
  • Manipulate nuclear energy – use tnb and pay up end of the month. we are not using that much also
  • Super strength – use machine
  • Ability to talk to machine – take up programming course
  • Absorb other super power – study hard.. be the top management .. boss people around (it’s technically like you own their skill also right)
