    Which Superpower?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Snoopingaround, Jan 28, 2012.

    Alright, if you could have any superpower which would you choose? It can only be one. And then, what would you do with it or mainly use it for?

    I would want the ability to freeze and unfreeze time (except for myself, of course). As in everything around me stop, but I can still move and do whatever else I want to do.

    Maybe then I'd have enough time in the day to accomplish everything it is that I want to do. I could even be evil and rob banks and probably never get caught. Bwahahahaha.

    Time travel would probably be my first choice, shapeshifting would be my second though.

    Immortality, that would give me more than enough time to develop technology and science to a level where I can produce and give new superpowers to myself. And eventually there'd be no limits.

    Invisibility. Sneaking around observing things. Being able to avoid trouble, and do what I want. Though I often hear that having the ability to be invisible makes people crazy, like in the invisible man, or that the temptation to become invisible and mess with people or steal things would be too great. I think it would be alright, as long as I can choose whether to activate the ability or not.

    If I couldn't choose that, immortality, or teleportation.

    Super strength, and the muscles and invulnerability that go with it. There's just something so primal about strength - it would satisy not just the most advanced intellectual part of my mind, but also the most primitive animal part.

    Which superpower and why?

    I'd have China in the garden. Ability to call upon a nuclear arsenal when needed isn't to be sniffed at.

    I have the superpower of endless patience. It doesn't help much in a fight. ;)

    I'd have to say the power of flight. Only for selfish purposes though. Forget saving the world, I would be able to FLY!

    I already have the ability of invisibility. Ask anyone who knows me, I can sneak up on anyone and no one ever notices me. Actually it's a pretty sucky power. NOTICE ME DANGIT!! ;p

    yeah, I'm invisible too. People bump into me without even noticing doing so. Does this mean I'm a ghost? Or just that people here are very rude?

    I'd be a shapeshifter. I love the idea of turning into an animal, for a certain amount of time. And it's almost as good as invisibility, because I could turn myself into something really tiny that wouldn't be noticed. Then I could spy on people.

    Lmao! Ditto with the invisible thing. Most people write me off because I'm a short Asian girl that looks twelve.

    Is having endless supplies of Nutella a superpower? Because I want that. The ability to summon Nutella whenever I want to eat it.

    I'd have the power to be able to understand people and be able to communicate properly with anyone I meet.

    Does omnipotence count as a super power? :p

    If not I'll take invincibility.
