Not going to get indepth or anything here just be plain and simple

i believe the typical superphysical abilities are far to over used and need to be less focused on....

I agree. The typical "super strong hero" thing is overused.

I've only become aware of one truly original power and it was from a roleplayer on DC Universe Online, about 6 months ago, when I had access to the computer that could still run DCUO...

Basically, her character could defy Newtonian mechanics. She basically was able to break the mechanical laws of physics and do things nobody should be able to do; she could create an object in two places at once, for example. She would manipulate one of the copies and both would change, the object essentially existed in two spaces at once. She used this method to torture one of my minions, lol, whom raged at her for being "overpowered". I thought she had the best superpower idea ever.

Ah, those were the days.

I love super physical characters I would like to see it scaled down like Young Justice Superboy(if he wasn't invulnerable but would like an invulnerable character without super strength) and Spiderman as an all-around super physical hero who isn't the most elite in one aspect

I would love to see a team up of each character having one aspect of Superman powers saving the world not just the day. It would pretty much be the X-Men but in the DC universe and the X-men don't save the world unless its their problem.

hmm hate telepathy(love Charles tho)

@kasino: technically any invulnerable character would have to have some level of super human strength due to the fact that the reason you can't lift beyond a certain point is because your muscle, bone and other tissues break, strain or tear. If those things are indestructible then there technically shouldn't be much of anything too heavy to lift.

@joshmightbe: hmm true but I don't think your frame would allow to lift cars

I don't mind on powers but they have to be written off good and smart (makes sense), say when a person has "earth shattering power" and there is no collateral damage in battle I go TFW. no power characters taking damage that would kill a man and shrug it off, I know cyke has laser vision but getting punched by double digit tonners are supposed to f*ck him up. Getting punch to a wall is not something one can wake up from, at least flash had the decency to post scientific flash facts back in the day.

Research, research and more research thank you very much

I agree. Basically Green Lantern ring like powers. In the wrong hands, it can devolve in to silliness easily.

Anytime someone has all the intelligence in the world on x if its not done properly. There is a line between being smart and being telepathic, and bad writers cross it waaaay too much (and its not limited to comics, I used to do text rpgs a lot too).

@kasino: Wolverine's bones are indestructible but his muscle and tissue would still begin to tear and strain at a certain weight, you may not be able to get a grip to lift a car but with out that tearing and straining you'd easily be able to flip over any you came across.

Why haven't I been following you already? lol

For me --- its the super speed. Take a quick look at the battle forums and you'll see why.

@lykopis: ditto! i dont know why I haven't followed you yet! problem corrected. and yes, extreme super speed is indeed very annoying, I dont mind sub sonics and a bit above, but it's like the closer it reaches to faster than light the more annoying it becomes - and I say this as someone who loves super speed and would love to have that power, but I just can't like speedsters, which is pretty weird

Unlimited super speed, by definition they should be the one of the most powerful beings alive, and it quite broken.

It's technically not a power but Batman's ability to supposedly beat anyone "with prep" is extremely annoying.

As far as actual powers go, super-healing is pretty bad. It always pops up only after a character has had the crap kicked out of him (as if it can't work DURING a fight).

Not really a super power, but Super Accuracy ..... Comic books make it to where every body can throw something and hit a target, like they are never nervous.... Batman, Green Arrow, Hawkeye, even super types like Superman, his heat vision is always spot on, I know he is Superman, but COME ON!!!!

This!!!

Mimicry is boring unless there are limits like one at a time or 50% strength with a max of 2-3 people's abilities. Sylar and Peter from heroes are a prime example of why this is bad (Power-up, then de-power, then re-power etc...) it really killed the story for me. Everyone's powers might be good for the "final battle", but many comics never really end (in the sense that the hero shows up again) so...

Oh G-d flight, used as a cop-out to get the hero traveling from one destination to another quickly with no explanations.

That's what spider man and batman have in common that make them even cooler then they already are to me. I mean, I love the idea of the hero having to travel by some other means. Aquaman, daredevil, hell even Flash's power is based on a different way of travel
