    I would have teleportation it would make a lot of things quite easier on me, and eliminate the need to learn to drive. Compulsion also wouldn't hurt so that I can finally land a damn job!

    I don't agree with this.
    First of all one person's blood dilutes out of the DNA and is gone by the 3rd or 4th generation. So eventually you would no longer be blood related to your descendants. And Would you really want to see your children and grandchildren become older than you?
    Having to learn to love new people and then saying goodbye every several years would actually be quite painful. It will start to feel pointless to even get close to anyone knowing they'll eventually go on without you, age, die. I am sure anyone with one of those military or traveling business family childhoods where they were moved around the globe all the time experience almost exactly this. Once they form what should be a lifelong bond with their new friends it's time to move again.


    Dying is part of the natural order. No one was meant to live forever. Death is why we live, it's what gives us that push.

    The ability to snap people into the reality instead of being brainwashed by our govt. That's pretty much it and why.

    I'd love Telekinesis or pyrokinesis. Or both. Both would make me happy. D8 *shot*

    I'd take any I could get, especially shapeshifting, telekinesis, and pyrokinesis

    I'd love the ability to control time, so I could go back and fix my mistakes, and pause time sometimes when I need a little peace and quiet.

    I'd also love teleportation, a much better form of transportation than driving. xD

    Well If I could have any superpower I would want to stop time and take control because when I'm in school I can just zap myself to the future. When I forgot to do homework I stop time ;]

    I would love that!

    Again if you control the boundary of time you can disrupt the time flow of the universe causing unnatural disasters which can tear the time space continuum, which is still very dangerous.

    Terrakinesis or Chronokinesis and definitely Invulnerability.

    I feel like this thread needs this article before people start picking superpowers.

    ^^ Indeed. Suck on that, those of you who want to control lightning or stop time.

    Anyway, the superpower I'd want without a doubt would be telekinesis. It's always been my favourite superpower, and one that I think would be awesome to have. Especially given I'm small and emotionally stable, I think it would be both safe and practical. It would make moving furniture around a lot easier, and if I could also use it on myself, I could use it to fly as well--though probably not that efficiently, but who cares. Since telekinesis is based on controlling the aura, that power could also be extended to create little invisible energy pulses, which would be good for self-defense. In more advanced stages, those same pulses could even be used to make a little hole in the clouds, in case some patch of ground needs a little bit of sunshine. Granted, it would be hard to control that aspect of it (especially where the sunshine patch would end up), but still...

    I would also like the ability to see other people's auras. It would almost have the same effect as mind-reading, but without the possibility of accidentally discovering dirty thoughts that contain too much information, or giving the person a feeling of penetration into their mind. Aura reading would provide me a way to tell how someone's feeling, what their personality is like, if they're lying or telling the truth about something, if they're trying to hide a secret, and also if and where they are feeling pain. Come to think of it, I've actually heard of people who can do this in real life, and even that it's a skill that can be mastered (but it must take a lot of practice).

    Remote viewing would also be a cool power to have. It would be useful for, say, detecting hidden enemies or obstacles, determining what the weather will be like in a faraway location, seeing what my boyfriend is really doing on that "vacation" he said he's taking, seeing distant stars as they are now rather than as they were millions of years ago, etc. I would of course use a crystal ball or a mirror or something to perform this viewing.

    Most of us just assume fantasy/video game physics apply. None of these powers would be possible in real life anyway.

    I would want the ability to control every subatomic particle in my body individually.

    I've always thought this would be an awesome ability, just imagine the possibilities. I could turn myself into basically an invisible dust cloud and reform individual body parts for combat and such things. I could pass through the tiniest of cracks and crevices, only an air-lock could contain me.

    Each atom, maybe molecule, would be cloaked in an impermeable telekinetic force-field to protect them, which also allows me to manipulate them.

    Yeah there are some obvious flaws in this ability, but all supernatural powers have their flaws.

    Edit: I assume that most of us understand that most of these are pure fantasy, Yes obviously physics prevents 99.9% of these from being possible, but let's just have fun with it.

    Those are very accurate theories on how having certain superpowers can cause problems.

    I disagree with some of their reasoning though. Take for example why they said force fields would suck. The whole spiel is under the premise that the force field would be wrapped around the user like a bubble. Which, in that case they would be right. Yet, the very picture they used showed what's her face creating force field that didn't envelop her entire body, so it would still remain extremely useful, and it definitley wouldn't suck.

    I'd choose the power of shape shifting. Not just into people, but animals too. Think about how much you could screw with people. Turn into a lion in a dark alley and jump out and scare the crap out of someone, then change back. Shapeshift into Barack Obama and walk into a gas station and be all "Hey, what's up? Can I apply here?" Oh man. I'd never get bored.

    I would love the superpowers of flight. I have always wished that I could fly without aeroplanes, etc.



    I have officially claimed Mew (Pokemon), Poo (EarthBound) and EarthBound itself.

    Mastery over earth. I'm thinking along the lines of an Alchemist/Earth Bender, with the ability to raise the ground around me, shaping it to my will. It's simple, but the possibilities are endless.

    Currently, I'm picturing a customer at my work being a real douche, and when they get in their car to drive off, I raise a tiny little spike in the road, just enough to puncture their tires, trapping them in the parking lot and making their day that much worse.

    I know, I think big.

    That article seriously fails to do its job. Read it, would still want to control time (including stopping it). All I have to do is not be an idiot. That, and being able to reverse time pretty much makes all those points null anyway; I can just fix my shit if I screw up. And in general, that article makes too many assumptions regarding the powers and the people who use them. Not everyone's a moron.

    I would have the power of manipulating energy. It seems really fun to test out different elements!
