Atlanta Comic Con has GWCCA team dreaming of superpowers

Jul. 12, 2019

With Atlanta Comic Con back again at the Georgia World Congress Center today (July 12) through Sunday (July 14) we asked Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) team members the million-dollar question: if you had a superpower, what would it be, and why?

Clarke Kelly, GWCCA Event Coordinator for Atlanta Comic Con kicks off this discussion.

“I would fly because Atlanta traffic is the worst. I would never be late for anything or have to find a parking spot.”

Parker Hendricks, GWCCA Marketing Specialist:

“I would like to control the weather. I know Storm can do this. But she really only uses it for the lightning. I would make it 75 and sunny all year around. Really use that power for some good.”

Kameeka Williams, GWCCA Operations Specialist:

“I would like the following superpowers from some of the characters from Black Panther: the compassion of Nakia, strength, and courage of Okoye, the intelligence of Shuri, the beauty of Ramonda, style of T’Challa, and wit of M’Baku.”

Kent Kimes, GWCCA Senior Staff Writer:

“While it’s tempting to have all-encompassing powers, which would make one essentially immortal – where’s the fun in that? I’d rather have the proportionate strength of a spider: the ability to use my hands and feet to hold up to 170 times my body weight.”

Brad Minton, GWCCA Director of Sales:

“I’d like to be able to read minds to better assist guests and customers more efficiently. Also, the ability to teleport would make getting from meeting to meeting and the commute easier.”

Bryant Tucker, GWCCA Assistant Security Manager:

“If I had a superpower, it would be to develop a Bubble Transporter…and my superhero name is Super Tuck. This bubble would be able to carry large groups of attendees (or even an individual attendee) from one location to another with “Speak and Snap ” technology (think of a mashup of the sister named Violet from “The Incredibles” and the quick-witted Jeannie in ‘I Dream of Jeannie”). Speak the next destination and then snap my fingers. This would cut down on the walking time, create a fun experience for all attendees.”

Otto Johnson, GWCCA Project Manager:  

“Thor is one of my favorite super heroes, so I would have to choose all of his abilities. Superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and resistance to injury. Also, since I work in the construction and facilities world, having a magical hammer is something that would be extremely handy!”
