I just wanted to make a fun topic. If you want super powers what type of power do you want, and what would you use it for?

#3 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19186 posts) -

Evil, I guess? I'd just use my powers for selfish gain.

#4 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

I don't think I could live with myself using them selfishly. I love superheroes too much. 
 
(great responsibility and all that)

#5 Posted by Video_Game_King (34674 posts) -

I do have them, and I use them for good....most of the time. I think it would be more accurate to say that I use them for harmless fun.

#6 Posted by NegativeCero (2928 posts) -

Neutral. I wouldn't side with heroes or villains, just do my own thing, which I guess could be considered selfish.

#7 Edited by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Evil, but just for my own gain, getting bad attention is only a sure fire way to get yourself hunted and killed.
 
I'd settle some debts, secure a future and then live my life normally.
With the added bonus of being able to wipe the floor with burglars or touchy people in clubs.

I'd used them to be a dick.

I bet you can think of an anime character that uses his powers for justice.

#10 Posted by guiseppe (2833 posts) -

Good, but not in the "I AM JUSTICE PERSONIFIED!!" kind of way. More like I'd help those in need if I could, but I wouldn't search them out or look for them.

LOL!

Depending on the type of powers I got I would use them to steal from companies I didn't like so I could be super rich. Though I would donate to charities and stuff with the money I steal. So I would be both I guess? If I could have any power, it would be Mystique's shape shifting. With that you can be a tricksy bastard.

I'd just go totally insane. I'd become a dick who causes chaos for no real purpose.

#16 Edited by PenguinDust (12414 posts) -

Depends on the superpower. If it's x-ray vision, invisibility or some kind of psychic power I'm probably going to use it selfishly. If it's super strength or eyebeams or some other such physical/destructive power, I'll use it for good or at least with an idea of helping others.

#17 Posted by NlGHTCRAWLER (1215 posts) -

Id take over the world by force to make it better.... It sounds super villain-y, but it would be for the best.

#19 Posted by Animasta (14467 posts) -

I would both help people and steal so much money so neutral I guess

#20 Posted by Spoonman671 (4382 posts) -

Evil.  I'm able to recognize my own selfishness.

#21 Posted by Video_Game_King (34674 posts) -

@Cloudenvy:

I should really go back to watching Bakemonogatari...as soon as I'm done with the Endurance Run, of course.

#22 Posted by TheCreamFilling (1221 posts) -

I would use them for my own gains, if people choose to see them as "good" or "evil", so be it.

#23 Posted by aznjon12 (188 posts) -

If I had superpowers I would use them for selfish reasons. Maybe try to become a religious figure or something. I don't think I'll do much that warrants evil at the very least. But my main goal would be a life of luxury.

#24 Posted by Cloudenvy (5890 posts) -

@Video_Game_King:

You stopped watching Bakemonogatari?!

#25 Posted by Video_Game_King (34674 posts) -

@Cloudenvy:

For the Endurance Run.

#26 Posted by NTM (7038 posts) -

A.

I'd want to be a mix of Batman and Captain America. Neither of them have super human powers, but they’re both (Captain America certainly) at the peak of human abilities. To me, that’s enough. I also like the possibility of being the best at what needs to be done, but not perfect. There’s always a downfall, big or small, but it’s up to me to triumph over that with my will to do better and fight for what I believe is right in my heart. I guess if there was one thing that I’d have to add to have super powers, it’d be Superman’s flying ability, and how he can breathe in outer space.

#27 Posted by smallmanoncampus (114 posts) -

I don't know, and the reality is that you probably don't either. That kind of decision is made in the moment and could redefine how you think about everything.

#28 Posted by TooWalrus (12991 posts) -

Probably evil. Not, villainous violent evil, but I'd steal some shit and make a better life for myself- the easy way.

#29 Posted by falserelic (4962 posts) -

Even though I picked neutral if I was evil this will be my Godlike theme song.

#30 Edited by Ravenlight (8033 posts) -

Based on my experience with KOTOR, I know I'd

go mad with power and attempt to destroy everything that's ever meant anything to me and turn my friends against each other for my own petty amusement.

Edit: That probably abuts spoiler territory, regardless of the game's age.

@falserelic: Well, what would you do? I see your threads all up on the boards and I don't think I've seen you offer up your opinion from the outset yet.

A much wiser choice. Bakemonogatari just leads to dark places.

#32 Posted by Saethir (353 posts) -

It would probably start out like Spiderman and end like Chronicle.

#33 Edited by pyromagnestir (3987 posts) -

I'd be a superhero who's not afraid to kill some motherfucking evil. But I'd make some money off it as well. I wouldn't steal it or anything, but not out of righteousness I just doubt I'd need to steal it, as superpowers look pretty good on a resume, I'm sure. Someone somewhere would be willing to pay me a decent amount to do what I can do. Also advertisements and stuff.

Also I'd use them to get hella laid.

Not sure if that's good, neutral, or evil really.

#34 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4660 posts) -

I would probably use it like the characters from chronicle. For my own amusement and gain without bring attention to it.

#35 Edited by Seppli (9773 posts) -

Freedom. My Freedom. Mostly I'd live by the rule of nature. Docile when well fed and freshly laid. Aggressive when threatend, hungry and/or horny.

So I guess neutral, though I'd prefer to say natural apex predator behaviour. Inhumane good. First thing I'd shed is this ill-fitting t-shirt saying 'Humanity' on it.

#36 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

I would create something evil, but then I'd destroy it so everybody would think I was good.

#37 Posted by MooseyMcMan (9795 posts) -

For good, of course. Then the cops won't give you speeding or parking tickets because they'll be all, "Hey, it's that dude! Don't ticket him, he fights for JUSTICE!"

#38 Posted by believer258 (11067 posts) -

Count me in with the "amusement" crowd. I'd find a use for 'em, and I'd help someone in need if I came across them, but going out of my way to spend all night saving people?

I probably wouldn't.

Sometimes I can be laid back and just watch people go back and forth. Usually when I express my opinion it backfires on me. I hate to get into internet arguments over silly stuff. But you are right I should give more of my thoughts down on my threads.

Well if I had powers I might end up being evil. My falseways would have finally got the best of me, and I'll lose control of myself. I want to be like a demonic werewolf with wings I want beast blood, and to have a variety of powers. Like fire, ice, lighting, telekinesis all sorts of powers. I want to feel like a god and howl in the sky. I want to kill people that has done me wrong in the past.

I want to be feared and control others I don't care for money I just want more power. I want to take over the fucking universe and create another. I want to become something worse then Satan himself. I want so much overwhelming power that I want to become more then a god, I'm crazy I know.

#40 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

I would straight up murder bad people, publicly and violently, to send a message that this shit is not on.

I would then enforce a tenuous world peace, Night Haunter style, based upon the unthinkable terror that is the idea of commuting a crime and attracting my attention down upon you.

The world would become a utopia of peace and working together, with the good and just sleeping sound in their beds. And yet, there is still fear, for they know that I am out there. Waiting. Watching.

I would be the necessary evil to ensure the world can be good.

And I'd have a bitchin cape.

#42 Edited by living4theday258 (677 posts) -

i would be "Evil" in the sense that Greed from FMA is

#43 Posted by ShadowConqueror (2999 posts) -

I don't believe in good or evil, but for the interest of the poll, I'd use it for both.

#44 Posted by GunstarRed (4749 posts) -

If it was something lame like telekinesis or whatever probably good, but fireballs or electricity...I'm gonna murder everyone and everything I see.

#45 Edited by Jay444111 (2441 posts) -

Depends on the power really... I have many plans ready just in case.

Super ultra powers like immortal+inhuman capabilities level capabilities I would take over Africa first and literally make it into a paradise for humanity. To the point where other countries and their people WANT to be ruled over by my kind monarchy I plan to create. Over time, as I take over the world with kindness and an awesome government I would make democracy a thing again when people and their education get at the right level I want them to be. I would then disapear for a while. Have a immortal wife or something and have a few immortal kids... I would only come back if they start fucking things over then I would just lay the smackdown on some fools until they realize that I exist to keep the world at peace. Kinda evil... but for a great cause really. I don't plan to kill anyone during this... I would try and prevent that as much as possible.

Oh, and I would demand this song to be played when I am beating the shit out of people.

Regular powers... like the Flash. I would super hero things out. In fact... I probably would act a lot like the Flash really. Huge ego and has a snarky attitude. But I would do good things for people constantly. I would only take over the world if given the extremely unlikely chance it would happen. Also the fact that other super heroes might exist will make me hesitant in doing so.

Crappy powers like... pissing fire or something crappy like that. I would pretty much get a job in the circus and be the flaming pisser or something. I would however most likely get really angry at someone and I would knock them out... only for them to wake back up on fire thanks to my fire piss. I would help people still... but I doubt fire piss can solve many problems.

A power that requires horrible things like a vampire drinking blood from a victim. I would admit to the world what I am... hopefully in a town full of sane people and ask for help to determine a cure... otherwise I would need blood packs to survive and I would help out on the police force during night shifts... seems fair doesn't it?

Dude... taking over a country isn't evil... as long as it isn't about killing everyone and about trying to stabilize it I think that is way better than what a lot of crap happens in Africa... I mean... child soldiers dude... they kinda need law and order there and honestly. If I had the super ultra powers. That would be the continent that I would take over. Make the most uncivilized areas into ones of gleaming glory and create utopia where other countries fold into my own just so they can share in the glory... I would win... I would be the Valve of the world!
