what are your favorite super powers
I've always liked powers that rank fairly low on the power scale; it's always made the characters more interesting when they really have to work for something rather than just waving a hand and being successful.
Fire Breathing: Not pyrokinesis or heat manipulation or any of those fancy ones. Good, ole' fashioned fire breathing. It's a classic power, is useful, and has a great visual dynamic about it.
X-Ray Vision: Perhaps it can be chalked up to being a holdover pubescent fantasy (don't judge me; we ALL wanted the power when we were teenagers :D), but X-ray vision is again alway visualized on the page well, and has sever great (non sexual :) ) uses.
Non-Direct Super Strength: Okay, allow me to explain: I like powers that, as an indirect result, end with the wielder having augmented strength. Good examples I can think of off the top of my head are Strong Guy, who's power is kinetic energy absorption, Blob, who's body tissues are augmented to the point where it grants him strength in tandem with his gravity powers, and Ferro Lad, who turns himself into solid iron and is invulnerable to harm, thus doesn't have to worry about breaking bones when he lifts heavy things. These powers are a lot more interesting than generic "super strength" and it adds in an x factor with the characters and their interactions in and out of combat.
Leaping: So much more fun to look at than people who just get up and fly, and it is (relatively) more plausible for more grounded comic book series.
"Manipulation of plants and vegetation is an interesting power, I think I'm gonna use that sometime in The Gift and the Curse =]Yeah, that's a cool power too. Manipulation of the classical elements is neat though overall.
"Twilight Man said:Yeah...and time control =]"Manipulation of plants and vegetation is an interesting power, I think I'm gonna use that sometime in The Gift and the Curse =]"Yeah, that's a cool power too. Manipulation of the classical elements is neat though overall."
There's really no power that I would reject (except maybe Reptils...).
Well, on second thaught.... If I got to pick:
Teleportation would rule, because I'd save a ton on gas.
Having extreme durability would be awesome, so I wouldn't be so stressed out all the time.
And shooting lasers would be awesome because PEW PEW LASERS FOR GREAT JUSTICE YES!!!!!
Super Intelligence... to be a masterful tactician... or to be able to learn quickly in a alarming rate... to create something amazing... stuff that can counter u guys favorite powers... or something that gives u more powers... common... Super Intelligence...
