If you could have one super power...
 
...what would it be? I'd have to say super speed. I love running, and it would make it much more interesting. I could run in China and be back before my first class! :D

Power over electricity. I could rule over anything electronic or any living thing that has an electrically based nervous system.

Size shifting. I'd love to fit in tiny spots and grow to overpower enemies.

I'd love the ability to direct energy. I could, after TONS of work make my own energy-programming-language and using something similar to the alchemy circles in Full Metal Alchemist to do practically anything.
I would become a crazy maniac scientist with the mottos "Knowledge is power." and "Anticipation determines the flow of battle."
watch your step, there might be a powerful gravity well, or a interdimensional gate if i had a super power. I suppose I could see myself as both a villain and a good-guy if knowledge or opportunity requires so.
Flexible super powers are the best.

The ability to control, create or destroy the laws of physics. Ability to control everything ensues.

If I could have a super power, I would desire the ability for ideas of my mind to come to full fruition at will.

Control over time is more than sufficient. Pretty much everything else follows.

Mind control on a large scale. Think of the opportunities: I could get the police to raid the parliament, thus holding a revolution with 0 civilian casualties.

If you've already got mind control, why not just have your government step down? Seems like needless use of force to get the police involved.

Also, as a slightly more interesting power, I'd settle for the ability to conjure butterflies. Chaos is fun.

Shapeshifting.

Most other powers seem like they could stem out from there. Invisibility(atleast a cameleon effect), great speed(perhaps nothing super fast but still), flight.
Possibily immortality...

I dunno.

Just to be able to reincarnate, immortal jellyfish style, would be cool.

If you don't know, immortal jellyfish revert to an infantile stage as opposed to dying of old age. They can do this any number of times before being eaten.

Dude, I have mind control. Why not have a little fun with it?

I love how this thread already has posts about anarchy, rebellion, and extremists. I guess that's what superpowers are for...

But then what if you get eaten? :(

Guys, you have to realize that you absolutely do not want immortality. You would experience the extinction of humanity. You would watch your planet die. You would eventually experience the universe freezing, and you would be alone for all of eternity.

You'd still die from being killed, but you would not have the limit of time. Assuming it's genetic, you could start a new race of immortal humans. Furthermore, being alone for all eternity would allow you to enter you're own subconscious, recreate the entire universe in you're head. Be a god, in the theoretical sense.

You should note the surprisingly few people who asked for it.

Megadog did, but he said if he got eaten he'd die like a jellyfish so even there you wouldn't run into that issue.

When I said it I was considering the possibility of a shapeshifter to be immortal since they can just morph into a younger or healthier form whenever they feel like it.
Again, you wouldn't run into that issue. At least not before you decide to turn into a space monster and float away long before Earth dies anyway.
