What would you do with super powers?

I'd think that invincibility would be really cool. I'd be a pretty lousy superhero just because I wouldn't be able to do anything impressive except not die or get injured. The cool thing would be I could stop the bank robbery by getting the robbers to use all their bullets on me, and I could stop the supervillain just by surviving things that were supposed to kill me. That's my hypothetical comic book life.
If I'm just running around being invincible I'd probably just start putting myself in dangerous situation for fun.
Telekinesis would be really awesome too. It's a great power for scaring the shit out of people. If I got telekinesis I'd probably be more of a supervillain just because I figure I'd enjoy my powers more that way.

Wow… why do people think total invincibility (the ability to NEVER EVER DIE no matter what) is useless? If you ever got around to it you could travel the world learning all the martial arts there is as you wouldn't die from aging. You'd be a powerful superhero because of the skills you trained over time plus the skills you learn on the job.

*sigh* Mr. Immortal from the Marvel Comics gig has so much potential, but he's dragged down by his own self doubt… Or maybe not… he IS the leader of a group of misfits like himself…. except that Squirrel Girl is not much of a misfit (she took on some very dangerous villains and her only real ability is to talk to squirrels)…

choose ONE: Electric, Super Strength, and invincibility, fire, super Agility, and reflexes, Teleportation, or to be super smart) powers what would you do would you be good bad neutral and why Also where would you get your costume from (if you want one)
The answer is obvious- Invincibility.
I'm already super smart :)

Teleportation is awesome though, so I'd have to hook up with someone who had that ability.

I want the power to heal myself and others and make it contagious.

What to do with it?

Keep developing it until a point where every human I touch (or come within 100 meters) experiences a profound healing. In a way that the evolution of their soul gets accelerated.

Because of the acceleration of soul evolution, the person may experience slight inconveniences for about a week to a few months such as:
- increased need to sleep and lie down
- diarrhea
- constipation
- flu-like symptoms
- unexplained muscle pains
- increased mood swings

And also a few positive results in the end…
- increased need to go outside and get fresh air
- increased need to exercise
- weight loss (or gain… whatever makes them healthier)
- sudden urge to drop destructive habits like drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, etc.
- dietary changes to a diet that takes in less meat
- increased need to expand their intellect and spiritual awareness
- and so on.

Because if everyone's soul evolution reaches a high point, that will be the END to a majority of the world's problems.
- No more war
- No more crimes based on greed, personal gratification, and the need to control their fellow man.
- Poverty will drop to a very low point or possibly eliminated.
- No more totalitarian regimes and any semblance of any police state. Regimes like China, Iran, North Korea, Russia, United Kingdom, California, Mexico, Venezuela, Cuba, Zimbabwe, etc… would all collapse or be forced to give more freedom to their people through lowering taxes and massively decreasing the size of government bureaucracy.
- No more destruction of the environment. No more monopolies of Big Oil, Big Pharma, and other cartels. As a result of the free market, green technologies will arise. As a result of the lack of need to control, no more chemtrailing, fluoridating the water, vaccines, GMO foods, etc…
- No more overpopulation problem. As we'd be taking it to the stars. There is space in the universe for every one to live in abundance.




NOW UPDATING!!!

Less meat? that's crazy… why not just have a power to affect vegetables so that they loose their ugly earthly stink and start tasting like chicken. Yeah, that'd be great.

I'd like some kind of morphing ability? You know, so I could change appearance. Would I use it for good? Maybe. Evil? Nah, don't like hurting people. Personal gain? Sure, why not. :D

Your posts are always packed to the gills with crazy, but there's just something doubly nutso about how your “perfect world through the convoluted use of abstract superpowers” is complex enough to actually have side-effects…

Either teleportation, or reading minds. I wouln't use them for good or evil, per se, just to get done what I want to get done.

Functionally that's pretty much what evil is.

LAZER EYES TO BLOW UP WALMART. Then some kind of shape-shifting to be Obama. That'd take care of the problems with the economy.

I can't believe that 1 of the powers isn't Immortality (which I would have picked, for the simple goal of NOT DYING). I'm too young to stress over a natural death, but not young enough to forget that in a few decades everybody dies. Do any of you really not mind dying? Think about that.

And I won't assume that Invincibility has Immortality attached.

Other than that… I would pick supergenius as power. Teleportation? I can just invent my own device. Talk to computers? I can hack into the offshore accounts of all the despicable fatcats of the world without having to talk to computers, and my techniques would be so advanced that I'd never be caught. Hell, eventually I'll invent my own immortality serum.

Just one big problem with being a Super genius:



And remember not to order from Acme.

I'd go for super-strength and invulnerablilty and dress in a blue outfit with antenna and walk around saying “SPOON!”



Seriously though how can you top a natty suit, a bowler hat, a sword cane and drive around in a Bentley?

“The Spelling Bee.” Complete with black and yellow striped costume and an annoying habit of drawing out all the ‘z’s in his or her speech.

e.g. “What wazzzzzzzzzzzzz all that noizzzzzzzzzzzzze?”

What, no flying? I guess teleportation could cover the travel aspect, but I've always wanted to be able to ride the wind currents and go zipping around city streets.

Edit: Ah, that's what I get for reading a quote instead of the OP. Still, flyin' y'all.

I suppose fire powers would be awesome, too, and with enough manipulation I could probably become airborne with them.

They probably wouldn't like me too much in California, though. :<

I need to make 5 more posts so I can get the 100 posts trophy so I'm giving myself some more superpowers

The power to play with someone's thoughts. The power to become Chuck Norris. The power to sing like Jigglypuff. The power to be awesome. The power to light things on fire whenever I want to. The power to be my enemy. The power to have powers. The power to be a cartoon character…

Dang I ran out of ideas for powers…

I would want the power to blow peoples minds with my awesomeness. I wouldn't need a costume cause whatever I wear would be my costume. I wouldn't be good or evil cause my awesomeness would bring both world peace and world wide destruction and death.

I would have
The power of
The Truth

So when people get into
An argument or something,
I can just point at them
And be all like

“BAM! TRUTH RAY”

And they would
Suddenly know
The truth

And if they
Can't handle The Truth
Their heads explode

And my name would be
“The Truth” also
“EVERYBODY: They all love to listen to the pretty music. But nobody hears my therapy bled upon this paper. It translates only to a catchy tune to you but I'm glad you're enjoying yourselves. You fake like you know it so well, so tell me what this song is about.
Maybe girls? Maybe God? Maybe how we all moved on and all sold out? And I'm glad you got us figured out”

My super powers are my two magical guns given to me by the Magical, Ageless Rock Star, David Bowie, after I saved his life from the hordes of screaming fangirls. They can turn into any non-lethal gun, rendering them completely harmless, unless I throw them at you, or pummel you with them. Then they might hurt.
My costume is an epic pinstripe suit and fedora with a lone ranger mask.
I am a hero, because David Bowie's powers should be used for the betterment of society.(No Venture Brothers Jokes. Although I love that show.)

My superhero name is “Ginger the Kid” due to my all-natural ginger hair.
