      Hi elenidempsey00! Wicked question.

      I think I would have to create ‘Hazards Man’!

      He would have the power to change the course of natural hazards like volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes/typhoons so no people died! I don’t think he could stop them entirely though – you can’t go messing too much with Mother Nature…

      What would you go for?

      Hey elenidempsey, I want to give this proper thought, I’m going to get back to you on this one!

      I think I would have a kind of Psychic superhero ” Super Meg” who could have a sneaky look to the future and just give us a nod about which ideas would really work and so where we should focus our energy, people and money.

      Or maybe Mr Alzheimer’s , who would get rid of Alzheimer’s disease, I can’t see any benefit for that condition.

      No, got it. ” Water woman” would sort out all the dirty water around the world, so everyone could have clean drinking water. This wouldn’t get rid of all diseases and illnesses but would give a huge number of people a better chance of surviving.

      Hi elenidempsey00! My super-hero (name: Heroic-disease-killer), who would be able to eradicate and vanish all nasty diseases in this world in a wink and would kill all nasty germs in a flash. So that everyone would be healthy and long-lived.

      Hello elenidempsey00

      I would create Super WasteMan, the hero with the power to recycle our waste into fuel, light, energy, heating, food etc!
      The world would then have less problems and would be fairer.
