Win! A Copy Of The X-Men Quadrilogy!

Want to win one of two copies of the X-Men Quadrilogy, featuring X-Men 1, 2, The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Of course you do! It's an eight-disc monstrosity!

This may actually be the simplest competition we've ever run. Entering is simple - all you have to do is let us know what your superpower would be if you were a mutant.

The latest X-Men movie had some pretty ridiculous powers, so you might as well go absolutely crazy on this one. One entry per person please, and the two funniest/smartest answers win!

Terms and conditions can be found here [PDF] .

In addition, while you're dreaming up bizarre mutant powers, feel free to head to this website to create your own mutant. If you use the code 'KOTAKU' you'll be able to unlock some extra credits, so give it a bash. If anyone manages to create something sufficiently hilarious/offensive, feel free to post a link in the comments below!

    The ability to effortlessly and instantaneously duplicate my entire body and whatever I'm carrying, as well as being able to combine them back into one body. This has so many applications:

    - Hold hamburger, duplicate, put down multiple hamburgers, combine back. We can now feed the third world.
    - Hold radium, duplicate, etc. Insert radium into fusion reactor. Energy crisis solved.
    - Duplicate, hold waste products, combine. Garbage crisis solved.
    - Duplicate, duplicate, duplicate, LEARN EVERYTHING, combine, cure cancer. Cure the cancer that I got from holding the radium earlier on and, you know, everyone else's cancer.
    - Duplicate, duplicate, duplicate, offer my clones as cheap labour, donate money to poor.
    - Duplicate, duplicate, euthanasia, combine remainders. Free organ transplants for everyone. Hey, they're my duplicates, they knew what they were getting into.
    - Duplicate, duplicate, duplicate, TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WOR- wait, scratch that one.
    - Instant flash mobs.

    The ability of Carry On. If somebody wanted a power I could give them one. *slide whistle*

    The power to get out of any awkward situation/occasion unscathed. Whether it be negotiating my way out of a criminal insider trading charge or landing perfectly after falling off a cliff. I would then change my middle name to "The Stoat". Just think of the headlines!

    "The Stoat does it again!"
    "Can no-one stop The Stoat???"
    "The Stoat rear-ends the elderly & flees gleefully"

    I would choose the ability to hold infinite stackable bag slots. Where to put them? Some kind of orifice might suffice..........

    Mine would be electronegativity..
    If someone were to attack me, i'd just run into them and absorb all the protons from their bodies.. leaving just a pile of electrons scattering around were the person once was.

    My power would be to make snorting, sniffling, coughing and throat clearing noises right near peoples ears. All this of course with no outward signs I am doing anything.
    I know this technique is proven to drive people crazy. Just ask the guy in the office cubicle next to me. It may be difficult for him to answer because his head has been impaled into his monitor. I'm not sure how that happened maybe he just couldn't deal with being sick for so long. He really should go see a doctor.... or a professor perhaps.

    The ability to play blu rays through my rear vertical loading slot and project it in HD via my eyes, Cyclops style!

    The ability to visualise people's thoughts; literally seeing and hearing a person's thoughts erupt out of their minds.

    That person humming a little Beethoven to themselves? There's a little orchestra bursting to life above them (in HD, no less!)

    The student who's anxiously crammed for a Biology exam? An absolute mess of mislabelled animal anatomy and misheard quotes from their teacher is swirling in and out of their ears.

    The depressed morning driver who just ran over someone's cat in their rush to work? The poor thing's mangled form seems to literally hang over them like a cloud...

    The man responsible for a string of gruesome murders in your local area, smiling to himself? You probably don't want to pay too much attention to those images.

    This is all selectively of course, so one wouldn't be overwhelmed by a sea of thoughts, voices and music to the point of insanity.

    Unless you wanted to. Seriously, how trippy would that be?

    I'd have the ability to transform into Brad Pitt. No one else. Just him. For the sex.

    I would posses the uncanny ability to be able to tell Cucumber and Zucchini apart, no matter what the circumstance, be it a Soup, Salad or Bolognese sauce!

    Mutant Name: Hydro Arc!

    I will have the best powers any mutant can hope for...the ability to correctly guess how far water will shoot out from any drinking fountain!

    Remember that time when you finished a jog. And tried to drink from a fountain only to end up standing there looking like an idiot with lips puckered and dry because the water arc fell short?
    NOT I!

    My powers are so extensive, that I have managed to apply it beyond the drinking fountain.

    Remember the time in the toilet stall when you confidently took aim but was unprepared for the multistream, obtuse- angled disaster you were about to unleash?
    NOT I!

    What do you mean "if I was a mutant"? I already am one! Well, I was one at least. You see, my special power was the ability to make a game "free forever", and a game can only be made "free forever" once. (Yeah, that's right, I'm the guy who made TF2 free :P ) Unfortunately, now that I've used this power, I am no longer a mutant (well sort of, not really though. I've still got the power of extreme bec'rollage, but that's more like a super villain power :P ).

    Scratch that first entry, there's some stuff that came out wrong. Lemme try again.
    What do you mean "if I was a mutant"? I already am one! Well, I was one up until this morning. You see, my special power was the ability to make one game "free forever", and a game can only be made "free forever" once. Unfortunately, now that I've used this power, I am no longer a mutant (well sort of, not really though. I've still got the power of extreme bec'rollage, but that's more like a super villain power :P ).
