If you can just pick one special power, what would that be?

For me, I like to have the mind reading ability.

By the way, I also like to mention that the lamest special ability is invisibility. Yes, some of you guys may like to use it to sneak into some shower rooms, but if the driver of the speeding Porsche doesn't see you, oh well...

Yeah, that wins.

Flight would be pretty badass, as would invulnerability and/or super strength.

But invisibility would just rock. I'm not even speaking to shower rooms and such (that would get boring).

Look at mere sports potential - watching baseball games from center field. Watching football games from mid-field. The standard 'theft' stuff would be nice.

I just love the potential with invisibility.

Ever heard of Longshot?

In the comics he had a "dumb luck" power. It's like he could call on luck. For example, he could walk into a convienence store and win $50,000 if he needed cash. He could shoot acurately from half a mile if he needed to. He could flick a quarter into a juke box from across the room. You get the idea. I always thought he was the collest of the X-men.

"Man Geno Smith is fun to watch. It's exciting to think we could finally have our franchise QB!! What? He sucks after all? Shoot."

"So the world really is going to end in December. Well that sucks."

I'll take the ability to teleport. That's really my cheater way around flying. I hate flying. This way i avoid the heights, am there in an instant and get to travel around the world.

That's a really cool superpower. It's almost like being superman, but it's not the same. You can make a bullet miss you, but you can't rescue someone inside a burning volcano. You can have the door to locker room fall off, but you can't use x-ray vision to look inside. Maybe Lex Luthor could kill you, but his laser gun gets tripped over and unplugged as he's about to shoot.

What a fun superpower, and it's cool to have control over it, too.

If I can pick an ancillary super power, I'd like to be able to look at any woman, curl my lip or wiggle my nose and make them O on the spot.

Actually - you screwed this up a bit.

You don't need to even control minds to let you into the stadium - you could control minds to the point that they don't even perceive you as being there.

How good am I at this mind control? Can I just throw out some blanket of mind control whereby I'm standing on the 50 and nobody can see me? Does it have to be Jedi-style where I actually tell them that these aren't the droids they're looking for?

Yeah, mind control would be pretty badass, especially if through mind control I can also manipulate bodies.

Okay, I'll concede that one, mind control beats invisibility.

But does it beat teleportation? I think that's the legit question at this point.

Never saw Unbreakable though I had read a wiki synopsis of it before I wrote the story.

But that wasn't in my mind at the time. I just decided that immortality = invulnerability so I went with that, with the dramatic point being that if you can't get hurt, can't get sick, don't have to sleep or eat then you're more dead than alive and thus immortality isn't worth it.

go forward in time and learn any invention(medical,mechanical) and cure/save/rule the world
slow down time and be the best athlete in the world(every pitch would be a uber slow pitch etc)
go back in time IN the time stream making yourself get younger then go forward to your original time OUT of the time stream so you are still young. Live as long as you want.

Teleportation with no limit on distance.

Would not want to read minds. People are strange and have strange thoughts they may never voice, reading that is probably not the best idea.

Invisibility would be cool if you had the power to turn it on or off and anything you were holding/wearing was also invisible. Running around invisible and naked in the middle of winter doesn't seem like an ideal situation to me.

Flying would be cool except, teleportation gets you there faster and you could always use teleportation to "simulate" flying.

Immortality? Meh, I dont know. Watching everyone you love in every "lifetime" you live grow old and die around you? And really, who really wants to pay taxes....FOREVER?

Invulnerability sort of lends itself to immortality doesn't it? So, no thanks.

I'm a huge comic book nerd so I've given this kind of shit a lot of thought. A lot of the most popular ones I think just wouldn't be too useful and/or sound a lot more glamorous than they'd actually be.

Super strength? The only real practical application it would have in my life is that I could kick anyone's ass. Not that cool, really.

Flight? Would probably be amazingly fun for the first couple months or so but you'd draw a lot of attention to yourself and most likely spend your days in a government lab somewhere.

Invisibility? Lamest, popular super power ever. I really can't even think of anything useful but sneaking into places you're not supposed to be.

Immortality? You'd get to see all of your loved ones grow old and die right before your eyes. Forever... Fuck all that.

No to all of those for me. A couple that I could think would be useful are rapid healing (Wolverine-style) to be immune to disease and remain youthful for a long ass time, shapeshifting, and the ability to create copies of anything you touched (money becomes more money- you could have whatever you wanted).

For me, it would come down to teleportation, telepathy (with mind-control included, of course), or telekinesis. Even with those three options, teleportation would win by a fucking mile. The ability to be ANYWHERE, at ANY TIME, WHENEVER you want? Shiiiiiitt. Sign me up.
