Why I Wanna be Voldemort

We’ve all definitely been asked at some point the age old, 21st century question. Perhaps it could be the most important question you’ve ever been asked in your life. “If you could have any superpower what would it be?”

I’ll admit I was being pretty sarcastic, but in all seriousness your answer to simple questions like this can actually tell yourself a lot about the kind of person you are. For example, my answer to this question would be to forget about the whole individual superpower thing and just make me Voldemort.

I’m not entirely sure what that says about me, if we’re being honest. Maybe I secretly want to be a magical wizard villain, I don’t know. Maybe I’m really bad at taking questions seriously. That’s pretty likely. Perhaps I think the villain is always 10x cooler than the hero. Also, pretty likely.

I mean, think about it- Voldemort has way cooler powers than all that crap they teach at Hogwarts. Definitely because they don’t teach students the Dark Arts. Which is understandable, but at the same time I’d so rather be Voldemort than Harry Potter.

Wait a minute, back track real quick. Why don’t they teach students the Dark Arts? They literally teach them alohomora, the unlocking charm, in their first year. They basically teach 12-year-olds breaking and entering without getting caught. That’s breeding grounds for creating power hungry supervillains. (Though, I suppose Dumbledore is senile, but that’s a discussion for another time.)

Ok, nonetheless, definitely still want to be Voldemort. Like all good villains he kind of just follows his own rules. Hence why villains are always cooler. They just do their own thing! Ministry of Magic says you can’t learn the Dark Arts? Blast them! Jedi Council says you can’t have all the power? Blast them! Batman says you can’t rule Gotham City? Blast him!

I definitely think my answer says I want to be a magical wizard villain… To end my answer to this question with a question, like all the best answers do, I’ll ask you- if you could have any superpower (no matter how unconventional) what would it be?
