You get one super power...

63 posts in this topic

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.

Ya,. I was going to wait until a few people chose theirs and then point out potential drawbacks.

 

I think the drawback of mind control would be the almost instinctual reaction to use it to get your way. Initially it would be cool, but eventually I think you'd feel isolated and unable to resist your ability to control others. You'd be a puppeteer, nothing more.

I would take Magneto's Super power. And I'm talkin Magneto's full blown magnetism powers... Being able to manipulate the Earths magnetic field and all. .. I would just keep slabs of metal in a back pack or something and sit out in the middle of oceans by making a metal patio in the middle of the oceans and relax.

When done basically crush the metal down and thrown it in a back back... Ride the earths magnetic shield across the world and then return home...

I would make a killing on being an up lose and personal tour guide... :-)

My super power would be the ability to see all of the world's data communications even if it is encrypted. I would use this power to work for the NSA.

That's a pretty disappointing drawback. :unsure: I will have to get back to you.

That sounds like a movie called "Jumper":

I think an even larger drawback would be the inability to control your age. If controlling time meant you went back (or forwards) to that point then you could just keep "restarting" your lifespan by traveling back to an earlier time, essentially living forever along with your ability to control time.

 

I think worse would be the ability to control time but unable to control your biological clock, so you still age, meaning even as a "master of time" you will eventually die....that is of course barring possibly traveling so far into the future you obtain something that stops the aging process.

 

Or another rendition of time control, you can't control time but rather freeze it...but, like one of the powers in the Code Geass anime, doing so doesn't freeze you but freezes your heart, meaning if you freeze time for too long you will die.

 

That being said, I think I still stand by my earlier mention of teleportation ala Nightcrawler. Though depending on the drawbacks I could go for spacetime control like Hiro from Heroes (which essentially could work as a form of teleportation if used that way).

Me and enigma-penguin had a chat about this, I decided on the ability to manipulate quantum probability.

Work for? I think you'd have states working for you. If you had control over all info you could name your price. You might need some insurance or a body guard, however. You wouldn't want to have an "accident".
