I don't have a favourite, which is how I knew I had to be a GM.
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.
LMAO...I guess thats a god like ability, or is it a god complex?*lol*
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.
Sure, Life IS like a bowl of cherries, but how SWEET they are depends on how much crap your willing to take to fertalize your DREAMS. Michael L. Cross
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,
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.

Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.
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.
And to create illusions, that would be cool.
And I always wanted to travel via the internet.
I would get them from being struck by lightning.
