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.
The super power to read people's minds was the next most popular according to my little fun research. I suppose everyone has thought about how cool it would be to read people's minds and know what they're thinking. I can remember I've thought about it a few times as a kid.
However, now, I think it would be a pretty annoying power to have, especially since the top reason why most people would want this super power is the same reason they'd want to have the ability to be invisible -
So they could find out what people really think about them!
However, the cool thing about telepathy is the ability to mentally communicate with others. You could save a lot of money on cell phone bills for sure.
Super Human Strength
Wow, this is bit of a shocker. I wouldn't have guessed that this would be one of the more popular superpowers people would want, but according to the poll below it seems that people would like to be super strong like the Hulk, Thor, and Superman.
A pretty direct power, but still cool. However, this is just superhuman strength, and doesn't include a durability factor (measures of invulnerability) like the three characters mentioned above.
You're just really strong.
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.
The third most popular power that makes my list of super hero powers is Invisibility. Sure, there's a lot of cool things you can do if you have the ability to be invisible whenever you choose, and talk about the ultimate super spy, right? Or, the ultimate bank robber or assassin!
It's funny, however, most people who gave the reason why they would choose this power had more practical reasons than grandiose ideas for using this super power.
Top reason why Invisibility was chosen? So they could spy on people and hear what people close to them really think about them. Wow, sounds a bit paranoid.
I'd much rather use the super power of Invisibility to be a super spy or assassin, but that's just me.
Which Super Power Would You Love To Have?
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!)
So let's have some fun, cast your vote for only one of the super powers you'd most want to have below, and be sure to share this with your friends.
Believe it or not, at least 80% of the people I ask this question choose having the super power to fly, and I ask a lot of people this question. I know, I have no shame.
However, according to this poll, only 6% would like this superpower.
Now, I don't clarify how fast one could fly. I assume they either don't care or they assume I mean fly like Superman.
The top reason why most people choose this super power? So they can travel anywhere in the world and not pay airfare!
Hey, you wouldn't need a passport either!
