If you could have one superpower, what would you like to have and why?

I myself have always been partial to telekinesis. I revel in the thought of having an ability that gives you such free control of the physical word with raw brain power. Plus, I could make almost anything into a weapon.

If not that, I'd choose flying for the sake of the sense of freedom you'd get while flying.

Hard mode: Pick a power that isn't all powerful or is limited in terms of use

I would choose super strength. Yes I know the phrase brain over brawn. But think about it, who would win in a fight a puny "nerd" or a jacked jock? (yay alliteration) Yeah. Sure brains could be good sometimes, but super strength could be VERY helpful. You would be able to pick up extremely heavy objects, throw them, etc. Who's up for using schools as weapons? But seriously, I would enjoy super strength over something like telekinesis or flying.

Another super power that I would choose, maybe even over super strength, is super speed. I'm already an extremely fast sprinter (sprinter because I don't have the stamina to do long distance) but it would be great to run past people in the blink of an eye. Who wouldn't be impressed if you could run over water and run to different places within seconds?

I'd choose to be invisible
You could skip school, punch random people, and say things to people walking around at night to freak them out..
That would be funny... and then when someones trying to attack you, you could go behind them and pwn them...

To manipulate Space-Time so could do whatever my mind desires. I would essentially be like "God", I could make myself rich, strong, uber smart. Anything. Anything you guys could do: done. Beat that

I don't think its a competition.

Superpower comparisons are more fun in pairs. For example,
Would you rather have Telekinesis or Telepathy?
Mind Control or Invisibility?
And although it's not a superpower;
Wings (flyable) or Prehensile tail (Usable)

Telekinesis
MindControl
Tail

If any power at all, I'd say Time Control.

To manipulate BOTH Space and time to do anything would be too easy.
So I like time. Essentially Mind Breaking, Teleportation, Invisibility, Super Speed etc all rolled into one.

Having a 'Midas Touch' would be cool. Though, I wouldn''t really be a fan of everything turning to gold. Maybe turning into whatever I want would be useful.

Also, I'd want either a way to control what I change and don't change, or a way to reverse the effect if I screw up and make my dog become a turkey sandwich D:

I'd have the power of piano... the ability to play it, bring people together and realize how amazing its sound is and its applications.

I would choose a subtle, yet powerful ability that does not attract attention. I would not desire something like 20x human strength, because I would prefer living mostly like everybody else. If I were to give myself an extra edge in this world, though, I think super empathy would be useful and unnoticeable enough. That is, not only being able to accurately feel (and thus read) the emotions of others with little effort, but being able to have slight influence over them as well.

Yeah.. maybe a controled midas touch would be cool...
I don't know.. I might be happy with invisibility. Sounds pretty good.

Probably omnipotence. If that's not allowed, dark powers. Or entity powers ( but most of you don't know what those are.)

The power to control water in all of its forms would be pretty awesome.
Because water is almost everywhere, it'd be possible to move a lot of objects. I think you could also "fly" by controlling the water in yourself and just throwing yourself around. :D Just think of all the possibilities! :O
That power could also be dangerous. For example, just taking all the water out of someone is simple but deadly. >:]

Flight.

I mean, you look up in the air and see birds, planes, Superman, and you think "Man, I wish I could do that." It's the ultamite freedom, providing it's not during a hurricane/thunderstorm.

The ability to have a perfect memory, when I want to make use of it. Would make this college thing a whole lot easier.

A book character of something I probably wont ever write, no matter how much I want to, called Iah, has the ability to know. As in, whatever she wants to know, or whatever she asks herself, her mind tells her the answer. That would be pretty awsome.
Also, she has a great death scene, which I already planned.

The ability to slow time would also be great. You could do stuff, then return to where you were, and no one would know it was you :D

The power to wake up with cool, long spiky hair, to never have to deal with it, to never have to use gel or anything, just for it to sit there. After swimming, rain, storms, running around... It'd just flop back into position without anything affecting it at all.

I would like a Hyper-advanced brain, i.e., all the superpowers relating to the brain, like telekinesis, Hyperintelligence, mind-reading, mind control, etc. But if I'd have to pick, I'd take Hyperintelligence, because it's nice to know everything.

How would having a tail be a superpower? (although it'd be sweet)
anyway, I also have always thought telekinesis kicked ass. I remember when I saw the pokemon episode where Ash fights Sabrina, and she uses her powers, I was sooo jealous. Being able to breathe underwater would also be nifty.

I believe I did preface that with

I absolutely love the idea of flight, whether through having wings or just somehow defying gravity (Wicked fan), I think I would enjoy that so much.
Telekinesis is interesting, but personally I'd prefer telepathy - so long as I could control it and block people broadcasting when I'm in a crowd etc - you could never lie to me. I hope I'd try to help people and not become corrupted, but I'll probably never know.
I like shapeshifting - I could be anyone, I could get in anywhere. I could be some kind of secret agent or something . . . or an assassin. :D
If I'm shapeshifting, I'd also like to think that I could shapeshift into animals aswell. If I want to fly, I'll turn into a bird, if I want to swim, I'll turn into a... shark. ^-^
I think I would enjoy shapeshifting the best.
I could shapeshift into pokemon. ^-^
