But you could always travel into the future, come back and tell me where the next disaster or SHTF event is going to be and I could head there to administer healing.


Making people feel bad is just a side effect.

Awesome, we will be a team. Time Man and Healer Guy.


Please note that coming up with creative superhero names is NOT my super power.

I think the ability to heal wins.

Anything anywhere would be an added bonus.
Keep everyone deserving alive, heal broken oil rigs, red tide, nuke spill devastation, Etc.
Anyone who tried to stop you from doing good would be uncovered, and the field would be leveled.
Nobody could ever be silenced again and people would have to say and do appropriate things.
Yeah, I'd pick healing.

Props and star to SweetRevenge!

I do think that the spaghetti thing would be a very close 2nd however.

Strength is good for self preservation, but what good is living if there is nothing to live for?
It would be nice though to walk into a bilderberg meeting and tear the doors off the wall ala hulk!

Some things to note(yes, there are rules, sorry):

Although time travel is a theoretical power, understand that it would be through a physical medium.

ie: Flying would be achieved in 1 of 2 ways:
Controlling gravity.
Controlling air.


Controlling time would create a situation in which others would also notice what you are doing, thus they would be able to follow you back in time. So you are able, just be weary.

As for the stealing powers. GO for it! But remember, these powers use your body. The more powers you have, the closer to death you become!

Will your unstoppable urge for more power lead you to madness? searching for more and more abilities until your doom?

Or will you correctly control each of your "stolen" powers without completely eradicating your biological boundaries?

The ability to absorb other powers from you guys with no weaknesses. I win.


Edit: I would use it for my own personal gain.

I control time.

So I would see in the future that you would try to take my powers....go back in time and kill your great great great great grandfather.

I win.


Who just happened to introduce your great great great great grandmother to your great great great great grandfather.

Ooops....."bing!" ... BYE.

You see, you just can't mess with time or a paradox will get you.

Me?....I'd like to have the power of "pointing".

One finger to make people tell the truth.
One finger to pump endless gasoline from.
One finger to pump endless water from.
One finger with a lighter in it.
And one powerful thumb to bind them all.

But I'd keep them hidden....keep them safe.

Teleportation.

I could think both good and bad ways to use this power.

1)Go instantly anywhere without having to wait
2)teleport myself inside a bank vault and get some cash,without anyone notice that i'm there

3)Enter secret facilities(area 51,dulce base etc) and take pictures(and evidence if there ia any)
4)Visit different parts of the globe that i would normally never go
5)Team up with the Time Man and Healer guy and transfer you to where our help is needed(beam me up scotty jokes not acceptable ,you might find yourselves in Antarctica by mistake
)
6)and of course PRANKS

Transmutation (ability to modify matter)
Telekinesis (ability to move matter)
Space wrap ("worm holes")

With those three you can do pretty much anything

Yeah, I use space wrap in the garden. Keeps those lovely worms in my veggie patch. Great stuff.

Did you mean Space "warp"?

If I could have "one super power"? I'd choose the USA, now that the USSR is obsolete.....

Oh, I see what you mean.

Just give me Bob's pipe.

or serious telekinesis.

Dr. Manhattan's powers, most definitely, assuming this was all ONE power. Although, being godlike must be incredibly boring.

If he doesn't count, then the ability to teleport. (like that movie with the Darth Vader kid)

By the time you see me, I have already absorbed your powers as soon as I sensed them. I win.

Healing (To a very broad extent). Not just myself, but everyone I attempt to heal.

Cancer? No longer an issue.
Heart attacks? I'll make you're bum ticker like new.
Car accident? I'll ease your pain and reattach/grow your limbs.

I would have to constantly have a healing aura on myself though, I could see lots of people who wouldn't approve of medical miracles and that kind of power.


You would force me to be Depopulation Man then.

Like Nathan off Heroes, my power will be either borrow other peoples powers (unlimited amount of powers) or one at a time. Things will be intresting in that way, wont get bored of will just a single power
