The Ultimate List of Superhero Powers! What Superhero Power Would You Want?
So here's a question I ask quite a bit: If you could only have ONE super power, what would it be? It's a fun question, and it always gets a good conversation going, especially at bars. This list of super hero powers presented below are the powers most of people I've asked chose.
A lot of it's pretty shocking to me, as the more traditional super powers weren't even mentioned. However, at the end you can vote for which super power you'd most like to have, and let's see which is the ULTIMATE SUPER POWER that most people would want to have.
Be sure to get your family and friends in on the fun and share this fun little game on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, or all of them.
Alright, let's have some fun here.
The superpower to bend time, manipulate it, and move through it to travel to the past, present, or future has made this list according to the pole below. I voted for this one as well, because this superpower would be just way too powerful.
Plus, it would be super cool to travel back in time and meet all your ancestors, even find out the truth about human evolution. Of course, if you're a villain, you could go back and change the past for your own self interests and prosperity.
A very cool and quite dangerous power. On this poll, it's the number one superpower to have...so far!
Moving up the ranks to second place is the power of telekinesis. Why is this super power cool? The ability to move or bend objects with just your mere thoughts is pretty powerful stuff.
Not only can you deflect bullets or any other object that comes your way, but you can also hurl objects and attack your opponent from a safe distance. However, what you can move with your mind does depend on how strong your mind is. Just ask Jean Grey from the X-Men, who is one of the most powerful mutants in the X-Men universe.
All in all, this is a pretty cool superpower to have, but it does have it's negatives. Just imagine not having to get up from the couch to get a beer or anything else for that matter. That might not be such a great thing.
Power Absorption has just recently been added on, and actually knocked Superhuman Strength from 3rd place and off the top list. We all love Rogue, and there's little doubt that having this superpower could make you an extremely powerful hero or dangerous villain.
Just imagine being able to touch any superhero like Superman, Wolverine, and The Hulk and be bestowed with any and all superpowers they may have. Even if it's just temporarily. Actually, I didn't clarify whether the effect was temporary or forever.
I think being able to absorb one's power temporarily seems a bit more interesting instead of permanently taking one's power. That would make for a character that's way too powerful and quite boring.
So temporarily stealing another superpower it is. Oh, yes, and one power at a time. Does this superpower still deserve 3rd place on this ultimate list? Cast your vote at the poll below if you don't think it does.
This surprisingly is the 2nd most popular super hero power that most would want to have, and don't get me wrong, it's a cool power to have. You can pretty much be anywhere you want in a flash like everyone's favorite blue, fuzzy, mutant elf - Nightcrawler. Well, without the fuzz and without being blue.
Like Nightcrawler, the movie Jumper stole the idea that the one teleporting has to be able to see his destination in order to teleport there. That's a drawback, but, hey, no power can be perfect, right?
And let's face it, there are a lot more possibilities with teleporting than there is flying, and a lot harder to track you down if you decide to use your powers for evil instead of good. I think those who chose flying forgot about how teleporting could get you there faster, and you don't have to worry about airfare and passports as well.
Top reason why most choose the super power of teleportation? They saw the movie "Jumper." Uhmmm...alrighty then.

Here's Where The Fun Begins!
Alrighty, here's where the fun really begins. Of course, this list of super powers is from my findings on the survey I conducted in a short time span. That means that the conclusions are hindered by time limit and confined to my general area since I can't teleport nor fly (bummer).
So, let's really find out what's the most popular super power to have, and I'm really surprised no one I've come across has said super human strength or super speed (the most traditional of super powers ever!)
