Posted:My friends and me have had discussions about this and I was wondering what superpower spinners would like if they were able to have just 1.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

BUT, in reality, it's all about telepathy (unless telekinesis encompasses telepathy as well??

Posted:nope thats just moving stuff with the mind
(and I don't mean headbutting it ubblol)

Telekinesis..Stop moving bullets or opponents, juggle with ease, (can move without having to walk) get a beer from the fridge without having to move.
it's definately where it's at

But out of the list, superspeed. And hopefully the ability to see random stuff put in my way to trip me.


I'm weird. Just work through that and we'll all be fine.

Posted:control of the elements would, methinks, allow you to fly as well, wouldn't it?

I'm caught between teleportation and invisibility.

Ah heck it. Invisiility

Posted:Telekinesis.

I hate going from point A to point B only to realize halfway that I left something at point A. With telekinesis I wouldn't have to walk back and forth.

Posted:i said telekinesis...but only because my ideal superpower (superacidic projectile vomit on demand) isnt there...
i'd be a super villain.
it'd kind of be like the vomiting in the exorcist, only deadly. i could burn my way into any building by vomiting on a wall or door or floor or some kind of building material. if i wanted to stop pursuers chasing me across a bridge i could melt a support and see them all swept away in a river. i dont think it would help me get girls (or boys, but villains are always after the girls) but i dont care.
i think about this too much.

Posted:There was no Dr Dolittle option frown
I would always kill to be able to communicate with animals, be it by understanding their language, or with telepathy...
ANimals are just too cool to turn down.
Failing that I choose controll of elements.

Posted:telekinesis... most definitely. Would be really cool to piss off people by doing impossible poi tricks, too. And I could just sit down on my office chair at 5 and move it straight out of the building and into my room without. And the shopping bags wouldn't have to be carried 3 floors up. It's good for nearly everything smile

Posted:Telekenises, if you could use it to fly.

Failing that, Flight.

But don't get too close to the sun...

Wow, imagine if you had wings, you could create your own country by pretending to be an Angel.


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Yeah I know if you could fly there would be no need to fear, but who, without this much wanted superpower would quail looking down a 5 metre diving board?
