    Default Superpowers

    If you could have one [completely controllable & voluntary] superpower, which would it be and why?

    Note: Only for NTs! Others: start your own if you want! (but send me a link so I can post it here so we curious people can see too!)


    For me: definitely telepathy. No more clumsy words! I could also figure out how people work and have the collective knowledge of the universe at my mind-tips...

    I chose time manipulation but if the choice was an option I would choose mind control (a la Jedi Mind Trick)

    I can't prioritize. They're all good and highly gratifying in their own way.

    What's kind of funny is that I'm such a bookworm and NON-physical IRL; but anytime I end up playing a superhero game, I end up vying for invincibility + superstrength, and maybe flying if I can get it. (My fave character from CoH is still my Inv+SS tanker.) You'd think I'd be into other abilities with more nuance, but apparently I just want to be strong and tough and kick butt. [Think Fairchild from Gen13, I guess.]


    EDIT: Over on another forum, a member was handling out perfectly "mediocre superpowers."

    I got this one:
    Any beverage you drink will be precisely the right temperature.
    Additionally, your shower or bath temperature will also always be perfect.
    I love it. It's so perfect for me, I'm a stickler on my beverage and shower temperatures, it has to be "just right" or I hate it.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So I assume Xray Vision also allows one to see through walls and (drool) clothing? If not its pretty bunk and as helpful as the lesser beer cooler super power.

    The ability to turn any thought into a reality.

    I chose shape-shifting, because the ability to spontaneously grow any type and color of facial hair would obviously be included. And as we all know, that would be the most useful superpower conceivable.

    You could also jump off of buildings, go SPLAT, then turn back into a person and walk away - all in an effort to make people go WTF? Though, in more seriousness, you could not splat and it would be a much more efficient method of getting down from parking garages than the stairs...

    Yup, if you can think it you can do it. The ultimate superpower.
