Super Hero or Super Villian?

NaBloPoMo prompt of the day is "How would you start saving the world if you woke up tomorrow with superhuman powers?"  Answer is I probably wouldn't, I might start saving the environment, children and the animals on this planet before I start saving most of the humans.  I think most humans are capable of saving themselves or causing harm to others.  Instead of saving most people, I would concentrate my efforts on making the world a better place as I see it. That is if I do anything to help and don't blend into the background and just live my life.

Most people would see this more as a Super Villain choice.  I guess that would be more of who and what I would turn into.  I am not sure how much of a Hero I could realistically be.  One of the things you learn when going through a criminal justice program is the dark side of humanity.  People, who hurt, people who kill, people who plan, people who steal, people who lie.  I took a class in specifically mass murders and Serial killers.  A lot of that class is about the psychology, and getting into the minds of those that commit the most horrible acts.  While I do want to save people by my job selection I am not sure that I would be a good choice to take the law into my own hands.  I might tend to be a little too extreme.  Someone kills and animal or a child why turn them into the police?  

Thoughts like that would keep me from interfering too much.

Question of the hour!

How would you save the world?

  1. You are right. A lot of people really can save themselves. They just choose not to.
