What would it be and how would you use it?
Personally, mine would be time manipulation. I wouldn't need a car to get anywhere, and I could get all the games I want.

Yeah, time powers are one of the best. If it was something more conventional, then I would like to be able to fly at the speed of light, which would give the same sort of effect as time manipulation.

kinda depends if everybody else has powers or is it just me.

If I'm the only person with powers, alchemy (turn plastic to gold, water to oil, coals to diamond, etc)

But if everybody else has some power, mind control

I was going to say Super Speed but time manipulation has that and much more. I'd also like to have teleportation. Body Sliding is too cool. But I'd probably pick those for fun. If I really had to choose one it would be indestructibility.

To pause time for as long as I fucking wanted without growing older. Takes procrastination to a whole new level.

Static: Either way. I was thinking if I was the only one, but either way works.
gunsword: What's Body Sliding?

Tylea: I never thought of it that way.

Time control sounds good. It pretty much trumps any other superpower, since if you're in a fight with another superpowered person you can just freeze time and then prepare a way to win. The only problem is that it can lead to paradoxes that lead to the whole universe collapsing, which isn't good. I'd be too worried about doing something like that to ever use it. So I'd guess I'd have invisibility. That sounds pretty cool too.

Actually, you would grow older since you're body is still living and not stuck in time like everybody else (I'm assuming thats how you're using the power), so if you say wait a year and ten continue, you would be one year older while everybody stayed the same age.

Think Simpson's halloween episode way back then where Bart and Milhouse found a stopwatch that stopped time. Of course they broke the watch with time stopped, and it took them 20 years to get the watch working again. In that time, everybody that was stuck in time stayed the same age, but Bart and Milhouse had aged.

Well that is unless Tylea just wants two powers of time manipitlation and immortality at the same time.

No he could put his body in a time loop so it won't age.

Time manipulation like you, but more along the lines of my breathing controlling time like that dude in DBZ but not as completely illogical and stupid.  Basically, as far as the rest of the world is concerned, I am percieved to always be breathing at the same rate.  Time slows and speeds up for me to accomidate that and make it seem like it's always the same.  I breathe slower and time slows down, I breathe faster and time speeds up.  I wouldn't be able to stop time (the physics of that don't make any sense anyway and as is common knowledge, even when you "hold" your breath, at least a little air is escaping).  By the logic of that, I would also get a full nights sleep in about two hours.

man if time loops makes it so that we won't age, no wonder our parents always advocated that we eat our cereals. Behold the power of milk. Adults must be committing suicide by having bagel and coffee for breakfast instead of time loops.

Okay I'll make a correction on my powers. I'll have time control powers that throw physics out of the window. They will also beat up anyone who breathes funny.

I have asked myself this question many times... I know, it's silly.  But If I could choose a power it would be the power of super fast flight.  So many uses, travel, recreation, financial gain, sports.  I could see myself using it to pull a backside 1,800 on a snowboard.  Take big air to a whole new level.

I'd love to be able to the crazy acrobatics that Spider Man does. I once remember seeing him dodging in and out of Doctor Octo's outstretched tentacles (as they were trying to swat him) in an older comic, and said "Holy Crap!  If only I could do something that cool."

Healing powers, invisibility and to walk through things would all be awesome.

If I had to choose though, wall walking. I mean, I could just run up to someone and give them a brain punch. That's awesome.


Although, maybe Flight....that'd be awesome too....


FLIGHT IT IS!

I doubt I would want a superpower no matter how cool it looks. It might seem all so cool and flashy in the movies and games but I am sure that there comes a huge responsibility and burden (or as they say "With every blessing comes a curse") which I don't think I would like to take. I would rather be human. ;)

Lightwarrior: What kind of curse could come from having a power, more specifically, time control? You don't have to be a superhero, you can do whatever you want with your power.

Yeah real life doesn't have any overdramatic consequences for having superpowers. You are not going to have your uncle killed or the space/time continuum ripped from using your superpowers.

Well just like any science fiction or fantasy setting, you still wanna put some logic in it. That is why we love all our super heroes since with the exception of a few, they all have some catch about their powers, or some baggage with which the character carries to even out the playing field and still make life interesting.

Even the ultra bad guys like Thanos that did rule the entire universe and beyond got bored once he had all that power and gave it all up to live his life as a simple farmer.

While the majority of people have chosen time control; the very basic essence is that they mess history up ala red alert style, and have future and past versions of themselves (popping in) constantly telling you not to do things, or showing you how you fucked things up. Or in a ironic twist, every time you use your powers, you need as much energy as an olympic athlete or your powers drain; just something to keep it interesting. Or if its just simple stopping time, it would be a matter of time before the rest of the world catches on and the people around you accuses you of wrong doing whether you did it or not. (Assuming that people choose time control to stop time and mess with people or sneak into places, etc. under the pretention that nobody is there to catch you)

Even Hiro in Heroes has a flaw in that his character is just absolutely clueless and overly depends on his powers to much comedic effect.

While we can do whatever we want with our power, it would be quite boring actually to just say I want to have the powers of God without ramafications. Not a God, but THE GOD. Whether you believe in god or not, all the power that every religion has ever said God has that is the one true power I want. (But you can only choose one power; yes I did, the power is God power). Certain balancing factors like maybe having a villain or losing your god powers if your GF is mad at you would put you back to just being a human being with powers and not a true god.

The power to have any super power I wish by thinking about it. 

If I had to pick a more "fly", "teleportation", etc.  one probably time manipulation.  I screw up so much.  And that includes age manipulation, speed, time travel, etc.

Agreed. If you can manipulate time, you're essentially unstoppable, unless you're a total air-head like Hiro Nakamura.
