    comic books question #3

    In the sentence below, what does "up to snuff" mean?

    It took several days for my powers to get back up to snuff.

    I would like to ask you a grammmatical question. Why is correct write for my powers, instead of to my powers?

    I was told by someone that back up to snuff is equivalent to about as good as it ever was.

    Is the answer below correct?

    16. preposition in order to get: in order to get, achieve, have, keep, or become something

    It must be. Take a look at this. He was waiting in order to get his power back.
