I WANT TO BURN EVERYTHING

#52 Edited by Abendlaender (2806 posts) -

If I have control over the wind can I just say "Fuck you, no more air for you!"?

Would choose wind anyway, just because I could fly

@cloudenvy: Are they wearing clothes during this petrification process? If so, no deal sir!

And if you had power over earth, surely you could just sculpt sexy rock ladies without actually petrifying real ladies, real ladies I remind you, that an air adept is using for totally innocuous upskirts!

I'm guessing you'd have to turn them into rock, undo it to unclothe them and then turn them back again.

Obviously it's not as exciting if it isn't real ladies, a part of the appeal is knowing that you've trapped a completely innocent women in this stony hell and then carrying her back to your basement. Besides, why would I even care about how this impacts you filthy air adepts? Go dress men up in skirts and blow them upwards or something and leave me and my rock ladies alone!

#54 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@cloudenvy: It's a kilt you fucker! I'll kill you! With...wind!

What the hell are you going to do with rock ladies anywa...nevermind, I think it's better I get back to my upskirts. No wonder air and earth are opposites, one wants innocent upskirts, the other is the devil.

#55 Edited by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

@canteu: Hey now, I chose fire Mr. judgemental! I'm just saying that I understand where earth adepts are coming from! Everyone enjoys a good rock lady, even me.

Now, I'll get back to innocently burning people alive and causing chaos around the world. Wind adepts aren't the only ones with innocent goals!

Take water because healing wounds and underwater mobility scream survivalist and if you're walking around with superpowers, you're going to need to stay alive. I've read enough X-Men to know that the government will have it out for any individual who displays any kind of destructive or potentially lucrative superhuman powers.

Conventional weaponry and detection systems are much less effective underwater and stuff like subs and sonar are pretty limited against small, fast-moving targets, who, by the way, can control water.

Also lets say you can control water density. Peace, see you guys in the Mariana trench.

rainbow

#58 Edited by RenegadeDoppelganger (410 posts) -

wait wait wait

I think everyone (including me) missed the part where OP said that you were transported to "a magical world"

that kinda changes everything about this question.

Ice Ice Baby!

Does water include ice powers because ice powers are awesome.

#60 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

Air is the most versatile. You can breathe underwater with it and create lightning out of static electricity in the air, in addition to what you listed

#61 Posted by living4theday258 (679 posts) -

hmm wind or fire...

yea wind

#62 Edited by Slay3r1583 (612 posts) -

I choose carbon.

#63 Posted by Deadmanforking (577 posts) -

Fire, only because I want LIGHTNING powers!!

#64 Posted by Cyrus_Saren (536 posts) -

Water. Cause healing. And underwater breathing.

#65 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5508 posts) -

Sex

#66 Posted by Zomgfruitbunnies (787 posts) -

Earth, so I can't be buried alive.

#67 Edited by Pudge (886 posts) -

I choose Wind, but I'm taking the traditional view that Wind gets lightning as a bonus power, because that's what I really want.

#68 Posted by User_Undefined (183 posts) -

Definitely wind. Though if I was allowed to expand to other elements outside the classic four, I'd pick shadow/darkness.

#69 Posted by Demoskinos (14830 posts) -

Fire. Lets burn a few cities down and hatch my taking over the world scheme.

#70 Posted by MegaLombax (391 posts) -

Is this more or less Bending from Avatar? For the sake of the argument, i choose Fire.

#71 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

Duh! Wind of course. I mean, have you seen Avatar: the last airbender? OP as shiiiiiiiiiit I tell ya!

I'm taking this poll as a choose your bending power poll btw. When the heck is season 2 of Korra coming?

#72 Posted by StarvingGamer (8238 posts) -

I hate the traditional quartet of elements. Makes no sense. Fire is not an element.

That said, Air because flying would be the most practical skill.

#73 Edited by briangodsoe (487 posts) -

Zinc!

#74 Edited by htr10 (334 posts) -

Has someone picked boobs yet? If they did, how did it go over with the general thread community? Just curious.

#75 Edited by Chibithor (574 posts) -

I feel like Earth would be the best one for taking over the world. Plus it would almost double as flying since you could presumably spring yourself into the air. Haven't seen Avatar yet though so maybe it actually sucks. I don't know why you'd turn yourself into stone though, how would you turn yourself back? Magic?

#76 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

Electricity so I could be all like Cole. Or heart.

#77 Posted by Dalai (7030 posts) -

Dubnium. You know, the dubstep element.

#78 Posted by Zor (656 posts) -

Heart, so that i can talk to a monkey and make people less... evil-ish... i think... i really don't understand how this power worked.

#79 Posted by Alekss (327 posts) -

No Ice?

#80 Posted by Fearbeard (830 posts) -

I'd definitely go Wind. Flying trumps pretty much all the other options.

#81 Posted by Dagbiker (6976 posts) -

The Human Element.

That or Turbonium...

#82 Posted by Killroycantkill (1406 posts) -

@sergio: Blood bending is the coolest, but it's instant "you're a monster" if someone sees you do it. And electricity bending is WAY to dangerous for me. Plus, in a more, I guess, modern world where most things are metal, I'd rather have the metal bending.

#83 Edited by Cold_Wolven (2220 posts) -

Water, I would love to swim indefinitely underwater and ride the water surface like a speed boat.

#84 Posted by Reisz (1497 posts) -

Water, every time. Always keep hydrated and I could surf at high speed across the world and solve humanities drought problems. Everywhere on earth would have access to abundant clean water and by extension food crops and hygiene, I'd make sure of it.

Essentially I would be a benevolent god of water.

Good way to live.

Fire, because Fireball is the bread and butter spell of any good wizard who hasn't put evocation as one of their forbidden schools. Man, now I really want to play Temple of Elemental Evil again.

#87 Posted by Capum15 (4900 posts) -

Water. I would like to be able to heal people.

#88 Posted by Vigil (231 posts) -

Earth has to be the most powerful right? The ability to manipulate the very planet we live on including other planets, not to mention being able to create massive fissure under the ocean causing catastrophic tsunamis, the possibilities just seem limitless.

Now if the power of fire included being able to feed off the energy from the sun, that would make it a strong contender.

#89 Edited by madpierrot (68 posts) -

Gotta go Air. It is the perfect mix off the 3 things you'd look for. Practical and simple everyday uses to make life easy, cool showy looking stuff to impress others and lastly it still has awesome offensive super power capabilities that drive the 7 year old in all of us.

#90 Edited by DystopiaX (5310 posts) -

Clicked air before I saw heal wounds for water...that then. Although I don't know why water would heal wounds.

Actually I don't see getting into fights much so probably air still, assuming by heal wounds you can't prolong your life/cure disease/symptoms of old age.

#91 Edited by Example1013 (4834 posts) -

All answers are irrelevant, since we're talking about a magical planet in the question. Maybe the planet's atmosphere is made out of candy, or fiberglass. Either would make any of these powers irrelevant, since you'd die within minutes of being transported there.

Speaking of the Last Airbender, when's the Legend of Korra back on?

If you had the water element you could get girls off.

Yeah but with air you could get yourself off hands free. Anywhere. No one would be able to tell, except for your raging boner, but every guy learns to hide those.

Do you know the name of the wind?
