Stole this from somewhere else. What would be the one superpower you'd like to have?

Then, how would you call yourself and would you use your powers for good or evil?

Me? Retro-active man, with the power to move back several minutes back in time to fix my stupid mistakes.

i'd like the ability to freeze time, to be honest. TO be able to stop EVERYTHING, and be able to do what I want while the world is at a complete standstill...would be absolutely KILLER.

I've gone back and forth with this in head many times before. Most often than not, the end result is that I'd want to have the Flash's powers of super speed. Close seconds are invisibility and moving through solid objects.

As for what I would do with super speed, at first I would most likely use them for my own personal satisfaction. I'd never have to own a car and use gasoline again. I could leave my house and be wherever I needed to be in a matter of seconds. Basically it would be a great money and time saver. I'd definitely show off to a select few of my friends who I know would not freak out.

However, at some point I would be in a situation where I could do something illegal, like rob a bank, and I most likely would do it. I wouldn't make a career out of it, and I'd probably do tons of good things to make up for it, but the temptation would be much to great to flat out refuse. I don't think I'd have the desire to fight crime or anything. Maybe if I saw something happening, I go to help, but I wouldn't patrol or anything. If I had an Uncle Ben, he would probably be mighty pissed at me, but oh well.

I would like to control time. Be able to freeze it or go back in time. Maybe "abuse" my powers occasionally, like maybe when the Powerball Lottery gets really huge.

Also the power to control womens minds could be rather fun. :)

Superspeed is a good one...

What I am looking for is the ability to go places without having to travel...

Not so much a superpower as a magical power, I guess. Kind of like apparating like the witches and wizards in Harry Potter...

I could get so much more done in my life if I didn't have to get in a vehicle and travel.

I'd go for the power to charm and verbally influence people. I'd be Charismatic Man!

Invisibility.
I'd like to be able to fly, but only if I were invisible. I'd hate to be regconized everywhere as "that guy who flies everywhere"

You could just do so much being invisible. You could do all kinds of random acts of kindness, "haunt" those who piss you off, and of course watch hot chicks get undressed (straight guys are obligated to give that reason--it's in our contracts).

Of course, travel would be great. You could board any plane and fly anywhere. It's not stealing if the seat is empty and the plane is flying there anyway...is it? Well, maybe it is. I'd just have to find some invisible luggage...:)

I would so be a super-villain. Not a big one bent on world domination or anything (which all super-villians seem to want for some reason), just one that uses my powers to get whatever I want. World Domiation is too much work. And then if I get it, I'd probably have to spend all my time in meetings, telling people what to do about this or that. Either that or have warlords that each rule their own territory. Except that might give them the temptation to overthrow me.

So that's why it's best to avoid the whole world domination scenario. And the power that would help the most would be ... mind control. Even if it was relatively weak mind control, like the Jedi mind trick, or like putting someone in a hypnotized suggestive state, that would be cool.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Have the ability to turn any object into a bottle of beer, like that guy in the Heineken commercial.

Seriously though; invisibility would be my choice.

Mine would be teleportation. Then, not only would I be able to teleport myself to various locations as I work, but I could also be available to teleport into burning buildings, get the inevitable crying baby and teleport out.

I call myself "Here and There"

I wish I could think of something nobody has said, but I can't. I'd probably take invisibility. I probably wouldn't use it for good or evil, I'd probably just go to a lot of football games and baseball games for free and every once in a while cause a player on the opposing team to be tackled by some mysterious phantom.

I'd want to be able to time travel. I wouldn't necessarily use the powers for good or evil, but for my personal gain (maybe the selfishness makes it evil though...).

Time control, most definitley. To be able to pause, rewind, or fast-forward life would be... well, it'd be just great. Think of how many times in life you'd wished that you could turn back or speed up time?

only one... I think I'll go with the safer choice and say control over lightning/electricity (though maybe the whole way down to the ionic level). I've always found myself energized during lightning storms, and fascinated by the lightning itself. I'm not exactly sure what I'd do with it, but it's a lot less neurotic than the alternative (which would have been the ability to take the form of any animal.)

Good Lord, I need to grow up.

Telekinesis, for starters.

Would give a whole new meaning to "stop hitting yourself". Also quite handy for when I'm feeling ultra lazy and don't feel like getting up, for example, to grab a movie and pop it in the DVD player. I would also dig immunity to any sort of pain, so I could show off by, say, breaking stuff with my fists. :P

I've always fancied my girlfriend's answer: the ability to control the density of air, meaning you can manipulate the weather.

And crush people.

Superspeed is nice. I could also go for telepathy (assuming, of course, I can actually turn it on and off, choose which parts of the mind to read, and so forth).

Psychokinesis, or Telekinesis the names on interchangeable. Sure moving the little things are nice, but the range that allows the manipulation of energy and such, including flying. Think Akira, though without the side-effects.
