Yeah the Gambit thing wouldn't really be useful... Always when I was young I either wanted to be like him or Lizardman, which is actually probably the lamest things I could have wanted to be, but I couldn't help it. Lizardman just kept growing his tail back! Somehow they found a way to make that look cool in the Spiderman cartoons, because that astounded me.

I considered saying telekinesis... but I think Carrie scared me away from that one.

Hehehe... I still think Lizard is awesome. He is definitely one of the better villains in the Spiderman universe.

Telekinesis is quite popular. And, needless to say on the higher end of versatility when it comes to supernatural abilities.

This is a topic I think about on a daily basis. Something of a childhood nostalgia. Plus, I think it would be super-cool to use superpowers to perform everyday tasks... like working my day job, or going to class.

What about Iceman's powers? Long summer days would be less brutal. And warm soda would never be a problem again. smile

Personally i wouldn't find that useful...because i never feel the air temp.
I still feel it on solid stuff and liquids...
How about being resistant to any wound,ache or other bad physical stuff.
As in...feel no pain,no diusease,immunte to all.
And no effects...
For example,if you snap your neck,it goes back to normal.
Hehe...it's like immortality,only just physical.

Oh, you mean like Wolverine? (Although, I think he still feels pain.) Yeah, I wouldn't mind having that ability. That's a passive trait, though. Most people would want something a little more proactive. Like pyrokinesis.

I said proactive, not practical.

Flying would be nice during those clear autumn mornings.

Still, that super-resilience would be nice, seeing as I get headaches often.

If you wonder Wolverine does feel pain, everyone does, he has just a higher threshold of pain. This threshold can be increased by everyone, it just takes time of practise turn3

How about taking antibiotics,to actually get better from a disease?
Think of the downs,people!

*The Moon Man would like to have the ability to be the ultimate surviver.
I already am resistant(immune) to temperature,perhaps being able to go on without alimentation?
And physical resistance of course.

shape shifting would be useful, but i will go beyond that and be able to alter the particles tha make up my body so i could transform, become a gas or liquids, i could be like a liquid that could move how i wanted, meaning i could flow throught the tinyest cracks uphill. this also means i could shrink or grow

for a set i would just add telekineses to the pot, stew or whatever you call it and maby the power to change the temperature of different things.

that would be awesome going to school like that, i could prank anybody then just turn into a gas and float away :headbang:

hmmm i would always loved to know wha the girl i want is thinking or what she likes and being a fly on the wll could be useful

Because of the technological age we live in, I think electrokinesis - or technopathy - would be one of the most practical superpowers to possess. (Maybe that's a bias, as one of my favorite superheroes is Static Shock.)

Still, there is such a dependency on technology that any ability granting direct mind-to-machine interface, or high-level bio-electric generation, would be of appreciable use. Theoretically, you could be self-sufficient when it came to powering the utilities and appliances in your home. And, with some ingenuity, you could utilize such a power for alternative fuel.

I would assume, to posses such an ability, one would naturally be resilient - perhaps immune - to high voltage levels...

Realistically, or, in the most pragmatic sense, I believe that given such 'superpowers' most people would incorporate them into their daily lives, making them easier, and more enjoyable. This idea opposed to what is portrayed in comic books, with ordinary people gaining supernatural abilities, thus going to become supervillains and superheroes.

I'm a different kind of person. Usually unique and creative, but... on this I seem to be quite generic. I would either say telekinesis (mind over matter is quite intriguing) But if I had to pick one that didn't affect other things/ people (which to me seems more practical) I would definitely say flying. Forget gravity, which essentially isn't the problem, 747's fly. Propulsion is the issue, i think lift is the proper term.

Funny thing about flying. Actually a few things, since your body is still just that of an ordinary mortal...

...you are still vulnerable to high altitudes, with the usually freezing, high-pressure, oxygen-starved conditions.

Okay, but the body would naturally adapt to that issue. Still, NORAD will not hesitate to shoot down unidentified flying objects. So, I guess if you could find a way around that, flying would be really cool.

(I'm sorry. That was not funny at all. I'm just being a jerk.)

mm....

Saving people from death is a good choice for me!

I mean, I've seen two people die...
So I would definitely like that!

Like healing, but better!

I was reading a forum on some other site, I think it was gamefaqs.com, but someone suggested the power of being able to "save" and "load" in real life. I would prolly choose that. I suppose that means you could just save at your birth and then load it when you were an old folk, and thus attaining immortality. If you think about it, though, saving and loading has a lot of intricacies that could happen with it.
