What Would Your Superpower Be?

personally I would prefer a short jump back in time, some kind of Ctrl+Z for life. a few seconds would be long enough to undo many stupid comments I blurted out without thinking.

My fam has taken to modifying the question so as to avoid the standard “I would wish for more wishes”:

Which superpower is better: X or Y?

So…super strength or x-ray vision?

The X-Man Cypher has a terrible power for purposes of comic-book writing, but it’s the power I’d like in real life. To be able to speak, read, and understand any language.

Teleportation for me. I’d love to have nothing to do with cars and planes ever again.

The Phantom Nutpunch. The ability to remotely punch someone in the nards from miles and miles away. No permanent damage, but enough to make them regret a great many things. I can’t punch them repeatedly, like once an hour, and I can’t use it en masse, so border defense or something is useless. But Minutemen who rape five year olds? Pow. See you in an hour.

Already have two super powers. I’m a supertaster with a great sense of smell, and I have a high-tenor voice and didn’t understand the concept of whispering until I was 12.

So I’m guessing my superhero name could be Megamouth.

(seriously, I’ve heard recordings of myself in a crowd. My voice pierces the sky. And not in a pleasant way.)

Heh, now I’m imagining a real Sonic the Hedgehog buzzing some rival at mach 3 in the middle of the night just to knock them off their game.

You mean aside from acquiring an innate understanding of the quantum mechanics of the universe?

I’d like the ability to permanently absorb/accumulate the abilities and knowledge of others instantaneously, but without causing them any kind of harm.

Vision. Always gain knowledge. Then persuade other super heroes to do the work for you.

Dunno if you’d count this as reality warping, but what I’d wish for:

Time control. Pause, slo-mo and rewind. The chance to take my time to think, and the opportunity for a do-over when I fucked it up.

But, if we’re gonna stick to less metaphysical things, wings and claws would be nice.

No but seeing it through Google maps street view counts cuz it’s usually recent enough.
