What is your favorite super power and why?February 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm #1157
Believe it or not, that's been a topic of several dinner table conversations at my place 🙂
I tend to go with 'Super Genius'.Â It would allow me to build all kinds of crazy gadgets, and turn a profit from it as well.
No, not Wile E. Coyte super genius, more like Tony Stark, Reed Richards, Bruce Wayne, and Dr. Doom.February 3, 2012 at 1:51 pm #1158
Cool, that is a good choice.February 3, 2012 at 6:53 pm #1186
Iv always liked telekinesis. The applications are limitless, making your work easier, helping in a fight and the most important when your on the toilet and realize the roll is out all the bag is never too far away LOL.February 3, 2012 at 10:03 pm #1195
The same as Cknap, Telekinesis is the most versatile and the most useful. Especially when you're in bed and the lights are on, and the light switch is across the room.
If not that, then possibly electricity generation and/or manipulation. Why, because it is just cool.February 16, 2012 at 8:11 am #1508
Hmmâ€¦I really can’t decide. Time manipulation, telekinesis or hypnotic mind control?
I'm tempted to go with option 3, just for the epic lol potential.Â
“Missâ€¦do the hula.”
(Teacher does the hula in front of awed class)
Also, I'm lazy, so I could just get my hypnotized minions to do all the dirty work for me. Wait…am I meant to be a hero? Darn it.March 16, 2012 at 10:45 pm #3270
I would also have to say telekinesis, as CKnap stated with its’ potential the power allows for the mimicry of many abilities, though if I could only have one ability, it’d be flight. Being afraid of heights it’d take some time getting use to, I’d be one of those guys laying stiff as a board with my arms extended floating maybe 3 feet above the ground jerking back and forth while trying to keep balanced. The hidden beauties of this old world that could be revealed with such an ability, the sheer joy of flight in itself, not to mention how funny it would be to mess with people. I think flight would just be very peaceful.March 17, 2012 at 6:07 am #1727
i think i would most want the combination of invisibility and wall-crawling. i’d be even more of a ninja!
i’ve been thinking about if this genius converted his brain into a computer, then manufactured and controlled genetically engineered clones of himself through a computer chip in their brains, which can also interface telepathically with computers.
whatya think?April 5, 2012 at 5:37 am #4090
Easy i could drain the energy from any source of power, be it kenectic, solar, hydro , or even radiation. Sure its not equal to that of a lot of other powers but it would still be pretty sweet.April 21, 2012 at 7:44 pm #4728
I have to say rebranch. Something goes wrong, I activate the ‘undo-redo-differently-till-I-get-it-right’ power.April 22, 2012 at 11:54 am #4754
that’s a great power! i think i’ll try and make a character with that!May 10, 2012 at 12:26 am #5334
FRM–did you have any luck? That sounds like a difficult one.May 10, 2012 at 12:19 pm #5347

I would love that power. It would be so useful. But you know what would make it even more useful? The option to “redo” a day without undoing the original day. So you could spend the day at work or school or wherever, and also spend the same day at home on HeroMachine…May 11, 2012 at 1:12 am #5362
HEYYYY! We could call that power ‘split-screening’ or ‘polywicking’ (burning candles from more than both ends) or ‘mousing’ from the Hitchhiker’s Guide concept of pandimensional beings multitasking by their very existence. This goes well with my ideal of growing up to be able to step from road to road not taken in one stride.May 11, 2012 at 11:14 am #5370
Cool! I really need to try Hitchhiker’s Guide again, I gave up on it last time. But that sounds really cool.
