( i used the search function And I Couldn't find it So please forgive if it was already done.)  
Honestly, i can't believe that very many people would take the creedo of "With Great power comes great responsibility to heart". so tell me. If you got the powers of your favorite superhero, what would you do with them?

#2 Posted by Dane (10631 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it has been done, but still.
 
I'd totally try to do as much good as I could with whatever powers I had. Superman/Captain America style. Sure I'm not really as good as they are, but striving for that ideal, to become a symbol people can look up to is as good as any of us could hope to be.

" With great power comes great responsibility" This is the best phrase i heard in my life....of course if i had my favorite hero's powers i will use them responsibly...=]

i would like to find a professor who is really smart and tell him about my abilities so ha can learn more about my power and explain what are my weaknesses and strengths ( i would hire a very trusted professor) and do good as possible.

I would do what just about all would do..............use them to make money and not work.......create a life thats very easy for myself. I would not try to to tackle anything to big cause i know I would mess it up.................for example one thing that I would want to do is go around and grap store managers or anyone whos a boss and manages people and scare the sh!t out of them tell them to treat thier people with respect or I will rip them to shreads! I would go after the following professions.............car sales men!...dentists!.......lawyers....! ......car mechanicas!......basically anyone who I THINK rips people off. I would cause damage to thier property costing them money and then tell them to be fair in businiess.

 

As you can see i would use my power as i saw fit based on my opinion helping out in my opinion but also acting on impulse and righting some things i think are wrong. Now clearly as you can see i have no business trying to save the world or stop crime cause i would just mess it up more. I dont have the answer to world problems other then to say those in power are evil and should be taken out of power........I could do that but then new EVIL men would just take those spots and nothing would come of it so I would serve my goals and help out sometimes if its convenient for me.

 

I would though make to a trip to the "GREAT" state of AZ and do somethings..............................................

I would be like everybody else but with the added gift of a superpower. I would try to live a normal life and help out where I can like in my community, but not tackle big probles, and issues becuase I am not trained to do such things. I would save some people from burring buildings though that seems simple enough, but I will not fight crime becasue the cops might not like it, being a vigalante and all. I would work like a normal person and maybe depending on the power save some lives while working.

well, my favorite hero is still the sentry, i don't know what i would do with all that power. i'd stop that oil leak in the gulf for one. that or i'd just leave earth and go exploring. "hey, guys! guess how many civilizations are on mars" ya know.

My favorite hero is Thor, so unless the enchantments of Mjolnir count as his powers too then I would just do search & rescue or personal protection work. Just some way that I could use superstrength & durability to help others rather than just beat people up.

step 1: rob bank for start up cash

step 2: purchase large storage facility for hide out

step 3: use my reality warping powers to wipe out humanity 

step 4

: kick myself for wasting my time robbing a bank and actually using the money to buy a storage facility 

step 5

: create a new race on the debris, and ruins of past civilization 

step 6:

make them worship me 

step 7

: realize by making them worship me ive given them the idea that there is a higher power, causing many of them to lose common sense and pray to me for miracles instead of actually doing something for themsevles 

step 8

: re-erradicate humanity  

step 9

: try again, but give them all a doomsday weapon, and let em sort it out themselves while i watch eating dynamitesteak (a food i will invent with mah powers)

step 10

How exactly would you "make a utopia?"

#37 Posted by majestic99 (8637 posts) - - Show Bio

@PsychoKnights:

With the Odin Force(since I pick Thor, oh and I want the Speed Force as well) I could create food to feed the world's hungry heal people of all of their ailments, create new planets for humanity to colonize(and add enough room to eliminate poverty and homelessness),etc.

#38 Posted by BatWatch (2894 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmmm, well, if the Odin Force can create food in vast quantities, then I guess you could eliminate hunger, but I'm not sure about poverty and homelessness. Having more space would not be the same as giving people the ability the harness their resources.
