You have gained new powers would you want to save people or would you be more like chronicle just playing with your powers not worried about the world ?

I'm sure 98% of people would just be selfish with them. Self included.

#4 Posted by tim2081 (517 posts) - - Show Bio

Mostly just play around with it, unless I see something that really bothers me.

#5 Posted by CrouchingTiger (148 posts) - - Show Bio

In reality, yes I'd feel obligated to help people. In video games, however, I always choose the dark side :)

I would play around because you got to have fun, but I'd still try help. The world needs a person who they can be inspired by and put their hope in, and I'd try be that guy.

I would honestly use it for selfish reasons and play around. But I am a truly caring guy so if I do see something I will help.

Depends on the power, if I had god-like powers I'd like to think I'd be a good guy But I kind of doubt it, if I had mid tier Spider-man level powers where I could still be put in my place I'd try to be a hero, if it was something stupid like glowing in the dark I'd leave crime fighting to the cops

#10 Posted by Oscuro (1124 posts) - - Show Bio

I try my best to do the right thing and I usually end up failing. Sooo yeah I don't think helping people would go much better if I had powers. I would probably give it a try, but I'm not going to endanger my family. Putting out fires and things of that nature would probably be the best way to go.

I can imagine myself acting like Doom. Try the force my opinion on everyone and rule the world

why i dont have this godly powers? why always the good guys? :(

Depends on what kind of powers we're talking about.

If I had powers like, say, Spider-Man, I'd probably just act normal, for fear of getting captured and experimented on by the government.

If I had the powers of Superman, X-Man, or somebody in that power range... I'd take over the world. Simple as that.

#19 Posted by Superguy0009e (2265 posts) - - Show Bio

Depends on the powers. Something small, like being able to tell where north is, I would just do nothing.

Something like Spider-Man, with more strength/agility/medium set of powers, I probably would help out now and then.

With Superman level powers, I think I would try to help the world.

Just screw around to be honest, if it was like telekinesis or stretchy limbs.

Powers like Spider-man I'd help every now and then, and scare people, 'cause I'm like that.

Superman's level would be to help around the world, do stuff. I'd win the world's favor, THEN TAKE IT OVER!

#24 Posted by Raw_Material (3300 posts) - - Show Bio

I had to think about this one for a little, but ya probably. I would try to find something that fits my superpowers well and help out in anyway possible, in return, for whatever I want or need.

#25 Edited by Decoy Elite (29923 posts) - - Show Bio

I would most likely use most powers for petty theft.
I'd only try and help the world with big powers, although the pressure would totally get to me so maybe not.

live a normal life. the whole idea of being a super hero in real life is stupid powers or not. you wont be superman no matter how strong you are or invulnerable you cant become a symbolof hope .no person could live upto fantasy created charecters of unbreakable wills and morals.

#29 Posted by TAneT62 (1071 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmm, hard one.

Hero or Villain.

Neither.

#30 Posted by MonsterStomp (20532 posts) - - Show Bio

Depends on what powers I get really.

Today, I helped a guy open a door because his hands were full. Literally, it was like a natural reaction. He didn't thank me but I felt good about it. I think I'd be a hero.

#31 Posted by TDK_1997 (15096 posts) - - Show Bio

If I have some small powers like Spider-Man then I would lay low and act cool but if I had some crazy powers like Legion or Superman I would take over the world.

Then why are superhero stories even set on Earth? Most stories are based on the premise of a what if, and I was under the belief that the what if wasn't "what if there were morally unbreakable people" but "what if there were people with fantastical supernatural abilities?"

I guess that's why I always prefer Marvel comics, since they generally aren't morally unbreakable... Marvel characters generally have flaws to them that make them human. In Batman's case, his supernatural ability is his unbreakable will to serve justice. Even Superman has fallen from his path, but Batman has generally tried to always do the right thing.

Anyways, as far as what I'd do, as TDK said it depends on how powerful I was... which is kind of a cowardly to say, but hey, I'm being honest. If I had street level powers, I might see myself become a costumed vigilante. If I was more powerful than that, I might see myself outing myself and acting to improve mankind as a whole (improve from my perspective at least).

World domination, or die trying.

#34 Edited by Guardiandevil83 (6109 posts) - - Show Bio

I would prefer to be like Slade Wilson or Peter Parker. Yes I would save people when they needed it. Could not just watch people die If I have the ability to help. But I would still be more an anti hero.

Id probably be somewhere in the middle. Id keep to myself and have fun with it most of the time but I would probably also actively seek out and kill rapists and other scum I dont like.

No hero for me. Don't make enough money just for the upkeep. Now if I funded by the government, then, maybe. Just being real.

#44 Edited by Hypnosis (369 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes but it would depend on the power. I would mostly use it for fun and to make life easier. But obviously if I happen to be in a moment where someone needed help, I would. I'm not gonna actively seek out criminals and save the world or whatever. Too much work lol

I'd take shit over, leave a pile of bodies from Atlanta to Thailand, and make the world the way I can bare to look at it so that I could bare to look at myself in the mirror again.
