Vote: Which Superpower Would You Want For Christmas?

Deadpool Ryan Reynolds

Unfortunately, there’s some things that Santa can’t leave beneath the tree come the 25th – and superpowers are definitely among them! What if, though?! Well, that’s what we’re asking you as Christmas approaches; taking inspiration from the biggest heroes on the box, we want to know what amazing abilities you’d plump for if you could somehow have your stocking stuffed with superpowers in a few weeks’ time. Check out the options and vote below!




Deadpool 2, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Wade Wilson has been in his fair share of scrapes, but his mutant genetics allow him to patch up scrapes, cuts and even bullet holes in a matter of minutes. If flinging yourself about with reckless abandon sounds like a good time, it could come in pretty handy!






Supergirl, Mondays @ 8pm, Sky One, Virgin TV XXX


Yes, it’s a bit of a cliché. And no, it probably isn’t best advised when visibility is as poor as it is in Ireland this time of year! But still; spreading your proverbial wings and taking to the skies would be the very definition of super!






Incredibles 2, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Is taking multiple trips to the boot when bringing the shopping in getting you down? Well that – and a whole lot more besides – would be sorted pretty sharpish if you could take a leaf out of Mr Incredible’s book!






Ant-Man and The Wasp, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Whether growing to become an intimidating monster, or shrinking to a sub-atomic state, nothing is beyond the realms of possibility if you follow the lead of Hope van Dyne. It’s as useful as invisibility, too; a whole new meaning to ‘fly-on-the-wall’!



The Flash, Thursdays @ 8pm, Sky One, Virgin TV XXX


OK, so picking a superpower just to extend your lie-ins seems a bit boring – but how nice would it be to know you can make it to the office in time no matter how long you stay in bed?! It would have other uses as well, of course, but somehow we keep coming back to that one…
