    Superpowers, if you could choose one what would it be?

    Lets suppose you could have irl a superpower. However the rule stands it can only be 1.

    this means you can't have multiple powers like certain superheroes do, seen as how they have additional powers to protect them from the rigors of said super powers.

    Infact lets make a game of it. I'll think of a power to have, say why i think it would be great to have, and the next person writes a reason why that power would suck and the problems it would cause, then for them to suggest a power they'd like and why it be great and so on.

    Starting off..

    Power of regeneration, able to heal from any wound or disease and remain healthy because of it.

    This would be great because I'd never have to worry about ever getting sick, could heal from any injury so able to push myself harder, and in general would live a long healthy life.

    Immortality. That means unaging and no bad health effects. (That shit counts as one.)

    You would see everyone you know, love or befriend grow old and die while you still carry on. Also if you got buried in a landslide you'd be trapped forever, and couldn't die from suffocation because your immortal.

    Man, immortality would blow. Imagine reaching the end of the world, and then just floating around through space endlessly, even past the point of anything existing but you, trapped with only your thoughts and no other stimuli to keep you sane. You'd relive every bad decision, every loved one's death, everything, and never have an end to look forward to. That's a curse more than a gift.

    As for my personal choice: general telepathy/mind control. Either being able to read people's thoughts at my own discretion or even influence them would make me nigh unstoppable if used properly.

    The downside to that is you repeatedly get cast in movies with George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell.
    Unfairly deleted signatures. Unfairly deleted signatures everywhere.

    A cool power would be to become all knowing. To know everything aboout everything.

    You would be able to hear all the negative thoughts people have about you as well. Plus with violent thoughts it might be difficult to distinguish the serious ones from someone saying "man I swear I'm gonna kill that guy if he makes that joke again" or similar stuff. Also if people discovered your power they'd most likely never trust you ever again.

    I'd go for the ability to turn invisible at will. You could do all manner of stealthy stuff for good or for evil.

    Until it rains. On topic, the Sentrys ability to manipulate matter. No power ever depicted even comes close to that.

    electrokinesis.
    aka the ability to control and manipulate electricity.

    doesn't matter how strong you are, if your heart can't beat and your neurons can't fire.

    Psychokinesis (aka telekinesis)

    superspeed so long as i don't suffer the bad effects of friction and relativity

    Instant Genetic manipulation would seem cool. Would be able to do most things. Make your body constantly repair itself, so no aging and the like.

    Reality manipulation or GTFO. Why you would pick any other power when you can probably just do everything under the sun with RM is beyond me. If we cant pick this godly power...telekinesis for offense and flight. If my power doesnt involve me flying, I dont want it.

    Flight, obviously. Though, telekinesis works as that would also give flight as a side effect with a bit of thought and practice.
