    I've always thought it would be pretty cool if we lived in a world where it would be possible to have a special power of some-sort. If you could have any superpower, what would you choose and why? Would you use your power for the greater good or against society? Or would you keep it to yourself? Personally, I would choose the power of hydrokinesis - ability to control and manipulate water with my mind. Not sure if I would bring it out in the open, but if I was ever put in the position to have to use it, I would use it for a good cause: supply free drinking water to those in need, help with droughts, etc.

      For me, I would control water, air, or both. Or the classic four.

      I would control nature, to bring a serenity of spring breeze air to everyone.

          I would choose the superpower to move threads from OC&D to OVP beca- oh wait. This is more a poll than a discussion so I'll move it into the right section for you now. For future reference, please read this and feel free to PM me if you have further questions. :]

            The ability to turn into an animal, but I can also mix and match the body parts so I can have the good qualities of certain creatures work together for me. example I can have the speed of a cheetah and the strength of an elephant.

              I will take Aston Psydragon's powers- he can summon any weather he wants. If that don't count I'll say Ice magic.

                I'd like shamman/druide powers. Like to control nature, transform, etc. all that good stuff.

                  Good old flight. I don't think that could actually be used for good or evil to be honest, but it'd just be fun to fly around I guess haha.

                  Being able to turn into animals would be cool, I guess. Just you know for fun.

                    Reality warping. I wouldn't have the creativity to actually warp reality completely and make it my personal utopia (mainly because I don't know what my utopia would even be), but there are limitless applications for this.

                    I could make a nine-course meal out of a slice of bread.

                    I could spawn a cage around a robber while the robbery is in progress (halfway across the world!), or even just turn his gun into a balloon animal!

                    I could meet my own needs and wants at the expense of no one. (Of course, I wouldn't be manipulating people's free will to meet particular needs or wants; that's just wrong.)

                    I could make corn and wheat grow in a barren desert, maybe solve world hunger. Purifying filthy drinking water in developing countries wouldn't hurt either.

                    I could understand why my dogs don't get along well with the new neighbors' dogs!

                    I could make the iPhone 10 and Samsung Galaxy S IX come out years early! The possibilities are endless!

                    I've always wanted to clone myself like in the movies, so maybe if could just spawn more of me?

                    I have all these things I both need and want to do, but don't have the man power (and can't find "good help these days") to get it done efficiently. They usually get done, but several years later. I'm really tired of being a one man team all the time. T^T

                    So I want the ability to clone myself for the totally lame reason of getting more work done and finishing my projects sooner. Regular old self satisfaction. My only fear is that my clones'll start procrastinating or mutiny like in a Calvin and Hobbes story.

                    I think my top choice would be time manipulation. I would be able to go back to the past or ahead to the future, I could freeze time or just slow it down. In all honesty, it wouldn't be the most helpful superpower to have (more self-serving than anything), but just like my second choice of invisibility, I think it would just be cool to have.

                      Shape shifting but like Ditto and turn into anything I want and manipulate their powers, that would be the best power, like all powers rolled in one.

                      Teleportation. Forget helping the world, though I would probably use if it helped me or a friend out for good or something. But otherwise it would allow me to visit wherever and whomever I pleased whenever I want to.

                      I would also save a lot on gas, and unlike flight would take little to no time at all.

                        Mainly Psychic. I could read minds, levitate or even making nightmares into reality.

                          Do Psychics count? If so, then yes, I would be one. But if I am only limited to one power, I would have telekinesis so I can lift things I feel too lazy to lift by myself lol

                          Telekinesis. It's by far the coolest super power and the potential is almost limitless.

                            Teleportation. It has been a dream of mine to travel abroad. Unfortunately, travelling costs can be godly these days. To be able to teleport from one place to another for no cost would help fulfill my dream.

                              I wouldn't mind to take form of any object that I see - would be great for disguise. Also, probably some sort of safeguard to protect myself from any projectiles and to also send things flying off their feet. I would never use this sort of power for evil, either.

                                If you warp reality, you can teleport the universe around you! You wouldn't even have to leave your couch and you'd be at a concert!

                                I'd say time control. Complete and total control over time, not only for the entire universe, but for specific locations and objects. If my enemies can't move, then they can't fight back. Depending on how much control I have over time, I could probably reverse time, to reverse my aging or injuries, and would essentially be immortal.

                                I would wanna be able to fly, have super agility, super strength and teleportation.

                                I always wanted to fly everywhere I wanted.
                                Super agility? Would help alot with my mixed martial arts fights xD
                                Super strength? Would help me a lot also =P
                                Teleportation would be so extremely useful, with just the thought of it, you could instantly be anywhere without worrying to be late.


                                Oh how I wish these were true *_*

                                Hydrokinesis has always been at the top of my superpower list, but flying and invisibility are definitely close behind, as both would be extremely useful, especially if flying also included not getting tired whilst doing so (as in, not having to exert energy at the same time). I'd use flying for the greater good of things, but invisibility would, honestly, be for hijinks, haha.

                                I would choose the power to morph into anything I wanted, when I wanted. And of course I would always be able to morph back.

                                I would keep it to myself, because otherwise the government would capture me, lol.

                                I wouldn't even do anything good or bad with it, I'd just use it for my own amusement. Feel like climbing? I'll be a chameleon. Feel like being awesome? Transform into Ozzy , Billie Joe, Mike Dirnt, Tre Cool, Eddie Van Halen, or Lady Gaga!
