If I could have a superpower, it would be mastery over the Higgs boson. This would allow me to control the amount of mass that any given object,
particle, or group there of have. In effect this would allow me to perform various incredible feats. I could reduce my mass to that of air, and float
around, while using pockets of high and low mass to drag and push myself around, effectively allowing me to fly. Also, I could decide that all the
particles of which an object or foe is made, simply have too little mass to allow their molecular bonds to remain in place, freeing electrons from
their orbits in such a way as to cause the object or foe to fly apart. Or I could decide to increase the mass of a given object or person in such a
way as to cause them to collapse under their own density.
Also, I could decide to make heavy objects behave and interact with their environment as if they were much, much lighter. So, the out of control
train, barreling down the track at hundreds of kph could be stopped with an out stretched finger. Furthermore, I could make extremely small objects,
even particles, very very mass dense, meaning that the light from a flashlight could be made to hit like a tank shell, rays from the sun could be used
as targeted bombardment of an area, allowing me to put down any large force which came to bear against me. In fact, with such a power, I would be able
to change the normal power to weight ratio of any physical process, to produce virtually any desired effect. It's the Swiss Army knife of
superpowers, because by careful control of such an ability, anything is possible. Every particle in the universe would be susceptible to my whims.
It's probably a good thing that my current capabilities are limited to razor sharp eyesight, a wolf like sense of smell, and extremely sensitive
