You get one power EXCEPT it cannot be:

1,Super strength

2. Enhanced durability or invulnerability

I choose

telekinesis

. You get all you want and protection. Flight and protection, what more do you need? Really I would even accept limited TK, I wouldn't need all the fancy stuff, just so long as I can pull stuff to me, fly, and stop incoming projectiles I'm happy.

Actually other powers would be fine if you could use them in various ways instead of just one. Why have multiple powers if you have one that you can multi-task with right?

Example:

Optic Blast becomes Speed Force Optic Blast: By shooting an object you can steal it's forward momentum and make it stop. It can still move, you just stopped it momentarily, albeit this would destroy some things outright at a given speed. Meanwhile you would be able to fly at the speed or slower of whatever speed you stole. You could also transfer your speed to objects gradually by shooting them. Thus you could propel a parked car across the street while you slow down at the same time.

Other than ridiculous powers like this, I've come up with a definitive list of the top two powers everyone should be mentioning:

Second Place:

A majority of powers that are commented about can be whittled down to 1 superpower. Notice how they usually reflect improving yourself and how it affects how others view you. If you had the power to convince people you had any power you wanted, then don't you have those powers? If everyone believes they saw you pick up a car, whether you actually did or not, don't you then have super strength?

If you jump a bully and beat the snot out of him, even if he's just imagining it, forever in his head and everyone there, it happened. Telepathic and Psionics is the most powerful ability, it's power over the mind.

First Place:

Notice how I said telepathy was the most powerful ability, yet it's second place. Healing factor may be more subtle, but it still wins overall. It's really great when you guys are shooting for the moon, but none of it will matter in 70 years when you're all dead. I'll still look like I'm in my 30's. Man has exhausted resources for millenia to live just a little bit longer. Now you have the opportunity to choose to live a LOT longer, and you're picking... telekinesis? invisibility? flight? Really?

I'd want to teleport.

The power of the Iron Fist. I enjoy punching people, might as well make it spectacular. I would also enjoy yelling "Like a fist unto iron!" every time I do it. Who wouldn't?
