If you were a Mutant?

#1 Posted by cpt_linger (2902 posts) - - Show Bio

I've only been on this forum for a few days and I AM LOVING IT!

I have noticed a lot of X-Men fans out there, So I wanna know if you were a mutant, what you want to be able to do. Try to steer away from things like "Access any bank account in the world... and teleportation"

Be creative.

I'd want to be born as like a living moon-type thing. As in, I would have all the powers of the moon. I don't know how you would work that into genetics, but I could control water(since the moon controls the tides), I could be a werewolf(werewolfves....full moon...duh.), I could probably be able to shoot moonlight, so, yeah...

wow man, i would never have thought of something like that. bit close to storm but i think if you were on a beach, and some big guy came a crushed your sand castle, ud make a tidal wave and crush him, his house, his family, his car etc... ive had some messed up childhood experiences on the beach, we'll leave it at that. you would basically control all other werewolfs too!

Toxic farts. That way I wouldn't have to listen to people complain that they smell, because they'd be dead.

Cryo-wolf, if you had the power to control the tide, and used it, you'd be pulling water from elsewhere. Big enough un-naturally-scheduled wave, and you might cause whales to beach elsewhere. ;)

I would want reptilian attributes, like my profile. You know scales, tail, strength, campuflage, claws, fangs, able to cling to surfaces, heightened senses, and agility

I would like to have reality manipulation, to chnage the bad things of the world.

Why do you list telekinesis, telepathy, psychokinesis, etc, if you end up adding "omnipotent"? Doesn't that one word pretty much say it all?

Well, technically, omnipotence is power with no limit. You kind of have to have a power first so that it can be limitless. Though technically, there are numerous definitions of omnipotence because of the religious angle. I wasn't intentionally being redundant; just trying to be specific.

The argument can be stated as follows:

1) If a being exists, then it must have some active tendency

2) If beings have some active tendency, then they have some power to resist God

3) If beings have the power to resist God, then God does not have absolute power

For example, though I might control a lump of jelly-pudding almost completely, the inability of that pudding to stage any resistance renders my power rather unimpressive. Power can only be said to be great if it is over something that has defenses and its own agenda. If God's power is to be great, it must therefore be over beings that have at last some of their own defenses and agenda.

Thus, if God does not have absolute power, God must therefore embody some of the characteristics of power, and some of the characteristics of persuasion. This view is known as dipolar theism.

Have I gone too far? Basically, I was just trying to emphasize the infinite level of my powers. The fact that others can try to resist only reinforces how powerful I am.

No, what you said made sense, I think. I guess I've always just interpreted omnipotence as the ability to do anything. However, from your point of view, I suppose it makes sense that you've added omnipotence and not out of redundancy.

Point taken.

I would want to be blind, but have superhuman senses kinda like Daredevil. I would also like to have Omega Level Telekinesis and mental blocks capable of defending against the worlds most powerful telepaths.

Chronokenisis is control over time with your mind...

Gleeping is the ability to duplicate items you hold, say you hold a gold coin and 'gleep' a copy of it into your other hand

Instead of just answering time control as per usual, I'll expand my list a little.

Time control, Telekinesis, Teleportation, Duplication (self/others/objects), Energy Manipulation, Shapeshifting, Technokinesis, Mass/Density control (of self and others), Super Speed or being Laplace's demon. I think I'd be happy with any of these. (And throw in telepathy just because there are so many different ways to use it.)

Also including some power sets from characters I like: Jack Hawksmoor, Magneto, Spider-Man, Iceman, Ambrose Chase, Cyborg Superman, Midnighter.
