Flight? X-Ray vision? Super strength? Regenerative abilities? Telekinesis? Mind control (These aren't the droids you are looking for)? Super speed (not so useful in the bedroom)?

 

You get one, which one, and why?

 

 

Me? Mind control. If you can influence anyone to do what you want, you don't need any other power, you have everyone at your will. Of course, I would only use it for good . . . I'd never use it to convince women way out of my league to have sexy time with me, nor would I use it to convince bank tellers to hand over large sums of cash. That would be an unethical use of my power.

It can be an infinite power, but only one of them.

Does everyone on the planet get the same superpower, or just me?

Just you. But it has to be one power. This isn't like choosing infinite wishes if a genie offers you 3.

Teleportation abilities.  I could go anywhere, I love to travel.  I could take out a loan at the bank with ease.  Lunch in Paris, dinner in Beijing, breakfast in Santiago.

Surely you have to put some sort of limit on the power you obtain...otherwise something like mind control could get out of hand (just mind control EVERYONE to do what you want and you are ruler of the world and as they are all mind controlled they can't fight against it).

 

I think I would take a more conservative approach.......I always thought the near-invulnerability of Wolverine due to his healing would be a good power, though going off the comic books his power is far beyond that (his behavior is feral-like at times).

 

My personal favorite though would probably be the agility/teleportation of Nightcrawler. Sure you don't heal from most wounds near-instantly, or move objects/people with your mind, but I think it would just be downright fun to be that agile/athletic with the ability to teleport (even if only to visible or well-known locations, though that's not how Nightcrawlers teleport works, as he does that out of safety so he doesn't teleport into a solid object).

OK. I choose Invulnerability. Or Jazz hands. Or acid tears. Still undecided....

Sarcasm? If not, then you are a much better man than I am because these are two of the things I'd do the first day. :)

Do the regenerative abilities work for other people? If so, if I had to choose one from your list it would probably be regenerative abilities. I've always loved the idea of being able to heal other people or myself.

Nope, only you. Wolverine or Deadpool style. Or you can heal others. 

 

 

Power of Flight, at whatever speed I feel like. 

 

 

*uses mind control to force you to fly mach 10 into a a mountain side*

 

See. Mind control is the superior ability. :p

I'd use that power for those reasons within the first 15 minutes. If the bank teller was a sexy lady I'd kill 2 birds with one stone  :laugh:  :woot:  :rofl:

Being able to control time while maintaining all of my memories in doing so. As in, if I go backwards in time I don't forget what I learned in the future.

 

I think with any good super power comes one really crappy limitation, otherwise it's boring. So my limitation is My age is proportionate to the time I'm in, so I can't go beyond my death or I'd die and I can't go before I'm born. If I go back to 1990 I'd be 6 but I'd remember everything I've experienced. ....I'd absolutely destroy Grade 1 math.
