I would also just like to be able to shut down people's brains at will...and turn them back on..and in a way timestop would be interesting because I could stop time when someone's pissing me off and then set them into oncoming traffic, sit back, and watch the fun begin.

No Super-Speed like the Flash?

Get to heal super-fast, vibrate through objects, can run anywhere in the world within a split second, react instantly without needing 60 seconds warning, move so fast that everyone else is froze as if time has stopped, and move so fast nobody can see you.

Superman was kinda bored so he just started flying around looking for something to do. He's flying over Wonder Woman's house and sees her bedroom window is open. He stops for a glimpse and sees her lying on her bed naked. She's lying there and squirming around looking real hot.

Superman was getting turned on looking at her so he decides what the hell, I can just fly in real quick, give her the ole' in-out and be out of there before she even knows what hit her. After all he is Superman. So, in he goes, wham-bam and he's out of there.

Wonder Woman knew something happened and says, "What was that?" The invisible man says, "I don't know but, damn, is my ass sore."

trust me, that is not so fun. Most of the time, I'm pissed off by the thoughts of others, and when I give them the eye, the look, they're like "what?!" ..... You dont know how many liars, snakes &wanna-be's, are out there. and thoughts can hurt.

I went with t-porting. *bamf*

I used to have those magical flight dreams, but sometimes it's winged flight instead of magical. The winged flight always feels more solid, so I like those dreams better, even though it's completely impossible with any rational physics. Really, having a power that results from physicaly being different is just better than having a psionic power. Psychic ones could fail suddenly, leaving you stuck in a wall or falling from a mile up or teleporting underground into solid bedrock. Physical ones can't blink off, though. :wink:

What about Niki's abilities: hawtness and insanity mixed with a dash of telekinesis?

erm. On second thought Precognition as long as Read People's Thoughts is "always on" -- some things one is not meant to know.

Mimic other people's skills while in close proximity. I'd just stand close to all you unkillable, invisible, super strong people and have ALL your super powers. YES, that's an idea! :twisted:

Silk, could you define how close would the proximity have to be? ;)

Being able to pass through objects is a nice idea, because it also covers most of the possible harms that can be done to you (if you can pass through object, they pass through you too), it is utterly illogical - more than any other "magical" or "psionic" power in the fantasy/comic worlds. Come on, if you can pass through objects, how can you actually move? And how come you can stand on the ground while passing through the wall?

I'd say within 50 yards.

You move while Insubstantial because you will yourself to move. It's a psionic ability.

Teleport wins by virtue of its enormous convenience. Be anywhere you want to be, instantly. Pop back to your home if you forgot something, or if you got into any trouble. No traffic jams, no waiting at airports, no putting up with unpleasant weather. Fancy a trip to the beach? off you go. A night out in town? No need to search for a parking space.
Buy yourself a fancy house in the middle of nowhere and still have all the convenience of living in a big city within a few seconds.
A huge amount of most peoples time is wasted in pointless traveling from A to B while you can just be there and not even care about the distance.

I'd say a better question is:-

How do those invisible people actually see, when light passes right through their eyes without interacting with the light receptor cells?

Superpowers by their nature tend to lack a lot in terms of logical justification.

Would you get really cold from flying? It wouldn't be nice if you had to cover your face entirely just so you wouldn't freeze, but I'd pick that one if it came with a ring of cold resistance 5/- :p

Bah!! Teleport into every bank, fort knox, etc. Gather all the money in the world, all the national secrets, all the famous peoples secrets, etc...that is power. ;)

I chose teleport. It would be nice to blink all over the place.....of course, I am assuming that I can take my family with me. :)
I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice-mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

Maybe in this form of invis, the light does not pass through. Instead, your body perfectly refects to the viewer, what is on the other side of you.

Precognition ftw. Imagine the benefits:

You'd be outrageously good at casino games
You'd never be taken by surprise
You could dodge bullets
You'd know where all the guards were going to be...

Of course, there's that whole time-paradox thing to sort out, but since it's a superpower, any relevant laws of physics can safely be ignored.

Or perhaps telepathic invisibility, where people actually can physically see you but don't consciously register your presence.
