If Human Genetic Engineering was legalized, would you do it for yourself or future child, etc?

In the Incredible Hulk movie, David Banner engineers himself by splicing Starfish and Worm DNA and other animal DNA with regeneration into his own DNA. His mutation is unstable and doesn't work exactly as intended (and of course some of his powers and Bruce's powers are unrealistic).

A more realistic view of Transgenic engineering is the television series "Dark Angel" where Jessica Alba had minor animal DNA spliced into her genome from conception, and she had minor mutant powers and healing because of this.

So you could conceivably engineer humans to have better eyesight and hearing, perhaps see in the Infrared or Ultraviolet spectrum like Snakes or Bees, and perhaps have super-human healing, strength, or speed, etc. Maybe if you spliced Electric Eel DNA into humans they could even channel electricity through muscle based capacitors the same way the electric eel does.

Perhaps you could even splice the DNA of more intelligent humans into your baby from conception, to make them smarter than your DNA alone would produce, like splice Albert Einstein's DNA into your child.

Or use genetic engineering to give humans a more powerful immune system capable of fighting a wider variety of pathogens or killing cancer cells, etc.
Yes, I'd try it. Awesome
