Just to liven the forum up a little:

If you had a super power, what would you choose?

It's tough to think of something original, but I like the idea of being able to read a story to be able to do what the characters in the story could do. Read a book about William Tell to be a good archer, for example. Maybe being able to use that ability on others instead.

In a way, being able to transfer strength of superpowers would be something I'd like as well., and maybe even the superpowers themselves, slightly. It would depend just how many other super powers were around.

One I heard from a chum a few years back: the ability to control all vectors.

Sounds very lackluster until you realise it'd make you omnipotent.

Hm, yes, that is pretty good.

Other cool ones:

Perspective: You know how when you're in an aeroplane and people look like ants, or you could squish them between your fingers? Actually being able to do that. The optical illusion where it looks like you change size as you walk across the room? People actually change size as they do it. Being able to reverse gravity by standing on your head. As it looks, so it is.

Ability to make metaphors real. If you have this, please don't swear at me.

Teleportation would be great! It's boring, but so, so practical.

I read through one of G.R.R.Martin's Wild Card books the other day (An alternate history earth where a virus called 'the wild card' infected the earth, killing 90% of people who contracted it, turned 9% into mutants and the remaining 1% into superheroes) and, just pulling out some of the more memorable powers:

The Amazing Bubbles: Stores kinetic energy as fat, and releases it in the form of a bubble of force

Spasm!: He made people spasm. Sneezes, hiccups and, uh, other things.

Dragon Girl: A little girl with a collection of stuffed animals that she could turn into the creatures they were. Her favourite was a stuffed dragon.

A guy who split in two whenever you hit him

Holy Roller: An enormously fat priest who could turn himself into a fast moving ball.

The Great and Powerful Turtle: A telekinetic who basically lived in a three-metre thick steel capsule that he levitated around the place.
