If you were a Super what would be your Powers and how did you get them? I would more then likely control time why because I never seem to have enough of it.:D

I don't have a favourite, which is how I knew I had to be a GM. :)

I play 'Champions' when I can, so the list of super abilities could get long very quickly.

Now as to my favorite, I have a criminal npc who has time control to an extent. His/Her nom de plume? Allibie, of course.

i used to want this power or that power.... but i find that i've mellowed in my "old age". now i'll settle for being able to create entire planets, systems, galaxies and universes.

i must admit, that if i were a superhero... i'd like to know what it feels like to fly, and not just in the dreams. ^^

My superpower would be:

1) Global and Local Sympathy (not just psionic empathy)

Meaning I would know just know "people are sad." I'd feel some of their sadness as well.

2) A mind that can bear that degree of suffering and act on that information.


With those two things my character would have all the motivation and ability to make this world a happier place for people insofar as this is possible and that is the only worthy superhero of the name for me.

Be Well,

Jonathan

I've always found myself drawn to elemental control, especially earth. I envision getting my powers through genetic mutation or as a hereditary gift due to some magical family origin like being an earth spirit.

In all my super powered games, my power was the ability to know everyone's thoughts except those of a select few, be able to manipulate them like puppets, control the forces of nature, karma and probability and mold the very fabric of the universe to my will.

...forever the curse of the GM.

There are so many cool powers to choose from, but if I had to pick (and yeah, this may be cheating), I would want a Green Lantern power ring. Powered by will and imagination, there is so much that you could do. Plus, I'd be able to fly and I've always wanted to feel like Superman gliding through the air. :)

I have always wanted to have super speed like the Flash. There is so much you can do with it

I have always wanted the ability to psionically blast someone and leave them with the perspective of another person - to absorb others' life experiences and then 'slap' other people with them, leaving them with a full awareness of what someone else has been through as though they lived it themselves.

Imagine how productive a trip to Congress would be after absorbing the life experiences of various poor people, minorities, sick people, etc.

Hmmm, My 4 favorites are(of course, there are others):
1... Perfect Health(includes regeneration of body parts... invincibility).
2... Unlimited Lifespan(Immortality... i choose when to die, not nature).
3... Teleportation would be cool too(saves on the travel time).
4... Super Genius(way above the 200 iq mark. Holographic perfect memory.

Yep, that about covers it. That'd make me happy.

I'd like to be able to read people's minds. :lol:

And to create illusions, that would be cool.

And I always wanted to travel via the internet. :cool:

I would get them from being struck by lightning. :mad:

That one power I think would be cool to have would be sound wave control. Being able to increase or decrease pitch, control how sound travels and other like abilites.

Juggernaut was/is human.
He actually has never had mutant powers at all based on Marvel's site.
He is just an ordinary man, who is very large and he has an outfit that grants him all of his abilities.

Juggernaut was indeed a normal human who was imbued with magical power when he found the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak and read the inscription upon it. I was rather disappointed with his rendition in the third X-Men movie but then...there wasn't much that didn't disappoint as far as that movie was concerned.

I prefer the omni-lucid line of reasoning.

Knowing the correct path to the optimum future for yourself, and those around you.

Not the same as omni-science, or omni-potence.

Its kind of hard to go against what Dr. Manhattan has going for him. A quantum super hero living in a quantum universe. He can teleport, fly, alter his size, immaculate strength, can be in multiple places at the same time, and has an extremely high intelligence. He could probably technically do anything, which is why I think that would absolutely be the super power I would want.

Power if immortality no aging and when i die i come back later, I would get it by winning a card game with the reaper

Hmmm I have always just wanted to live forever, just tosee what everything will turn out like, but then again, I guess everyone is a little afraid to die.

But for sure....teleportation. That would be the best I think. Just be born with the ability to instantly appear anywhere? Oh yeeea. Who needs cars..guns..anything. Poof poof poof. I win. :) Poof someone into the middle of the ocean lol.

The powers I would want are based loosely around water control. Basically I would want the ability to control water on the molecular level, then be to create a kinetic force field made of water called a "wave field" that would allow for flight and super propulsion through water, as well as kinetic slams. The water control would also allow underwater breathing and healing abilities. The powers come from an unexpected mutation occurring in the son of a normal human and the prince of Atlantis. It's a fusion of my two favorite characters as a kid; Aquaman and Cannonball.

Free-fly genetic manipulation. Could alter my physical shape, assume any relatively similar form that I felt like, and would regenerate if I received any kind of physical injury. Get a virus or disease? Nope, 'cause anti-bodies and other natural defenses would form and combat such things significantly more effectively by being able to alter themselves on the fly to be more effective. Someone else gets hurt or sick? If you so choose, you can heal them as well. Got someone you don't want to see wither and die as your regeneration keeps you from aging? Your powers are transferable, enabling you to gift them (either fully or in part) to other people without losing them yourself.

Sure, flight would likely be limited to wing-style, and you couldn't teleport across the world, but I think you could be happy. Be who you want, look like you want, and make sure that the people you love are happy and healthy. Oh, and if someone messes with you, kick your hide up to bulletproof, beef up your muscle mass, huck individual into a tree. Or huck a tree into the individual. Either way, you win. Also, see a jacket you like but they don't have it in your size? Oh wait, yes they totally do. Not enough leg room? There is when you're three feet tall. Can't breath in space? Yeah, that one is kind of a *****, id'nit?

Physical Immortality.

IE:
Ageless
Immunity to disease.
Heal any wound.
Immunity to starvation/thirst.

I see all these movies about immortals whining about all the people they know aging and dieing. I love my parents, I know I will out live them both barring accident or the foul design of others. Other than them, I don't make close ties to people. What difference is it that some people will age and die while you live forever? There's always more people, there's only one you.

Selfish, maybe. Still I would like to see how the world changes, and have the ability to survive the changes no matter what they might be.

How I would get them? Someone get the silly idea that would be a curse and hit me with it out of spite. Then I use the best form of revenge, living well.

Other than the gifting part, I had this in a Marvel game - based it on the matter manipulation power & changed it to life manipulation. I could shape and/or alter any living thing, but once the life spark died out, I couldn't touch it. Background of the character was that he was ancient - older than he could remember & he remembers the Olympians first coming to Earth. Add in a new sense to be able to 'see' the life force and you can 'see' medical problems as well as bio-weapons.

...if I had to pick (and yeah, this may be cheating), I would want a Green Lantern power ring...

You know, I might suggest you go with a Red Lantern power ring, or a Black Lantern power ring. The difference?

Red is powered by rage, and it completely replaces your circulatory system with a plasma that you can vomit up upon your enemies and allow it to eat through them like a super-acid. You can also take some control over the rage of others, and use it to power your abilities. Typically, Red Lanterns end up simple-minded Rage-fiends, but if you've got the will, you'll do fine.

Black is powered by death, and it grants you healing and an infectious bite. You become an undead revenant(normally, not always), and you still get all the basic Green Lantern abilities.

just to provoke some thought.


------------------------------------

For me? I would take eternal youth, the ability to grant those that I love that same power. Notice not Immortality, as I would be mortal I'd just never age. Also, never needing to sleep, eat, or ever get tired. Basically, undeath without death. Sounds great to me. That and telekinesis. And Telepathy. And psychometabolism.

I'd get these powers by being awesome. In other words, by meditation and careful study.

If I didn't like the sun so much, I'd just be a vampire. that and I'd hate to be indentured to my creator.
