You are not powerless, you just need to accept your power for what it is, a part of the whole, no one man can save the world, but you can be a light to those who envelope themselves in darkness, The candle that sparks the inferno.
I have also imagined a power, where if I kiss someone, and I don't mean a smooch, but a full on "making out" kind of kiss, that I could absorb a skill of theirs. for example learn their mother tongue or how to play the piano and then I could also pass the stuff on the same way.
The reason I add the kissing is, This kind of power would need to have limits and be a gift both to take and give.
Kissing would signify the trust of passing such gifts on and taking them without consent.
There are so maaaaany nice ones:
For fighting/risky things in general: insane agility/regeneration
For getting along with people: Mind reading
or Telekinetics ....
But what would MATCH me the most? Clearly agility. I'm usually between the fastest in running anyway, I have quite a short reaction time etc.
They say I only think in form of crunching numbers.....
