If you could have a power?

Yo! So out of curiosity if you could have any special power or ability what would it be? Let's say it was in any type of fantasy world that's not the real world and powers could be a way of life or means for survival, whatever! You can be as original and creative as you want or just something like one of your favorite characters. One rule though none of that omnipotence type and the power to have all powers stuff.

I'm looking to create a comic franchise my own comparable to Marvel and DC and I've already went through basically everything you can think of for powers and abilities to reinvent. Eiichiro Oda inspires me to be more creative with his out of the world abilities.

It's a question I always like to ask people to see what they come up with. I always say it's not just about a power but how it works and how a person uses it that makes it different and unique.

High powered telekinesis is what id pick. Depending on how you use it, the possibilities are next to endless. Flight, ability to pick up insanely heavy objects, etc. Plus youd never have to move from the couch lol.

The power to steal other people's power..Granted this only works if the other people HAVE them, but if there were a world where someone COULD do that, then it's safe to assume the rest of that world also has powers of some kind. HAving the ability to steal powers means you literally can get any and every power on earth. Now you may say, "well what if the flying power was in London and the power to run as fast as lightning was in Japan, which means you need to get to one to get to the other"..Well maybe the power to breath under water and the power of supermans "steel-like body) are in america, so I get those, swim to japan, get the speed, then use the speed to get across Japan, then use the other 2 to get to chine, then speed all the way over to London..

I think this stuff through a lot haha

I've always been a huge fan of the power I saw in one of Neil Gaiman's stories... the ability to change any material into any other material. Something about that just sounds perfect.

One power I'd like to have is seeing the future (premonitions).

Teleportation, for sure. Frees up all kinds of travel time for time spent actually being places, the world is your oyster on a whim, easily monetizable, and so on. You'd be rich and able to go wherever, whenever, forever. Awesome.

Monetizing it would basically make you a shipping company, but what's so bad about that? Hire somebody to take care of the paperwork and zap low-volume high-value goods around instantaneously. Work a few official hours a week, get in some unofficial smuggling on the side, bypass all port and national security on a whim, it's a good life. You could moon every head of state on the planet, in sequence.

Also, every time I had to use the bathroom I'd zap from wherever I was to use one on an airplane. Just to confuse people.

One thing superhero media never really seems to understand is exactly how simultaneously workaday and bizarre most people's lives would be if they did in fact have powers. Fight crime? Right cosmic injustices? God, who has the time, where would you even fucking start? Who would you talk to, who would you punch? How about messing with lottery numbers instead, or getting a pizza faster? That's life, right there.
Workin' on:
Tom Petty [Final Fantasy XV] (9%)
Bondage Finch [Bondage Finch Adventures] (12%)
Your Mother [Debbie Does Dallas XXIII] (8%)

You can't spell "Cosplay" with the "play"

I would have to agree with bambipie: the power of flight.

I'm stuck between teleportation or telekinesis.

Time travel. There are so many things I wish I could go back and change...and seeing the future would be pretty cool too.

Get a bad grade on a test? Now I know the answers and can just go back in time for a do-over.

Stumbled over a question on a job interview? Now I have time to think of a better answer and can re-do the interview!

Plus going to the future and then coming back with the stock market knowledge = major profit.
