For us thirty-something-year-old men this is a great time when it comes to movies on the big screen. If you grew up watching super heroes on TV, many of your favorite childhood super heroes are now being featured on the big screen. And with some killer special effects!
Man of Steel (Superman), The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises (Batman), Iron Man, and the list goes on. They all take you back to childhood and have you wishing you had super powers — back to imagining what you could do if you had those powers.
Super powers used for the good of your marriage
Well, if you are married you probably wish you had some of those super powers today. They’d be pretty useful in handling some of the issues you face as a husband.
I did some
imagining day dreaming myself, and having some super powers would not only be cool, but pretty useful! It probably would take our marriage a few notches higher, and eliminate some problems.
Super Powers for Your Marriage 1 of 11
If you had super powers what would they be? How would you use them to benefit your marriage. Here is my list of 10 super powers every husband wished he had.
Spidey Sense 2 of 11
Think of those times you were blind sided by something. Your wife said something, or asked you something, that you were in no way prepared for, or expecting. What usually happens? You probably say something you wish you wouldn't have. Having a Spidey Sense would help you see it before it comes, and be better prepared.
Power (Wedding) Ring 3 of 11
Think back to your wedding day. The day you slid on that wedding ring. Now imagine, the ring you put on was Green Lantern's power ring! The ring that has no limits to its power. You could do and be anything your wife needed. And when drama comes you could easily protect yourself from it all.
Super Speed 4 of 11
You know exactly how it happens. There are less than five minutes left in this game, and it is a great game. And it just so happens your wife needs something from the store, and she's unable to leave right now. You have a choice. And you know the consequences to both choices. Super speed would come in real handy right here. Your wife would be happy, and you would miss only a second of the game.
Thor’s hammer 5 of 11
Batman’s Utility Belt 6 of 11
As a husband you may find yourself in all kinds of situations. Most self-induced, and many that you can't get yourself out of without help. This is where Batman's utility belt would help.
I'm talking about the old school Batman utility belt. You know the one that had whatever was needed at that time. If Batman was in shark infested waters, he'd pull out his "shark repellent." Imagine saying, "if I could just get to my _________ on my utility belt," and your situation gets handled.
Fast healing ability 7 of 11
This is mainly to heal our male ego, which for some reason is at it's weakest around our wives. Our wives can build us up higher than anything, but if they say the wrong thing, we get weak immediately. Having a fast healing factor like Wolverine would allow us to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.
Mind reading 8 of 11
I admit, I don't always understand my wife. And I know I am not alone! Sometimes I wish I could read her mind. Things would flow a lot smoother. Imagine having Professor X's (Charles Xavier) ability to read minds. Your communication effectiveness would go through the roof! You could legitimately finish your wife's sentences without negative consequences. Well, maybe.
Invisibility 9 of 11
Super hearing 10 of 11
Husbands, this would make up for one of our greatest weaknesses, the ability to listen! For some of us, our wives always sound like Charlie Brown's teacher, but it has more to do with our ability to listen, than anything to do with our wives. Super hearing would allow us to pick up every audible sound. Now, what we do with it is totally different..
The power to smash, like Hulk 11 of 11
In the movie the Avengers when stuff got too deep they were holding onto the hope Hulk would show up and do what he does...smash! Sometimes our marriages need us to show up and just smash some stuff. The power to smash, get stuff done, and destroy anything in the way to a better marriage would be a huge benefit to our marriages!
