The Top Ten

Time Control
I've been thinking about this power for a LONG TIME!
It is just OP to other powers.

World w/ super heroes and super villains:
You can fight like Neo from Matrix. (No time to explain)
World w/ other super powers:
No one can outmatch you and you can do almost anything they can do.
World w/ normal people:
I'm gonna go through almost all of the good things. You can Freeze time and do whatever you want, you pervert. (This should keep you occupied for a couple of months. ) You can, and you will always be right, win arguments, know answer to every question, always hit the ball, always dodge attacks of any sorts, and look like a smart and badass at the Same time! (Now that's cool. You do all this with slow-mo and rewind abilities. )
You can go to your past and be a better person. You can work out, study, do homework, sleep and stay in your room for decades, and never lose time!

Now for the more arguable abilities: you can survive a deadly fall by slowing YOURSELF in mid-air. You can do ALMOST ANY acrobatics by slowing time and yourself. (Remember when you used to do flips, handstands and karate kicks in swimming pool? Same thing except no floating. )
You can think of a solution, or make a plan in no time on the go.
You can climb walls w/ training, making "jumps" in slow-mo and luck (which is 100%) You wouldn't need to be afraid of anything. Spend 0 seconds real time training pain suppression and every time you get hit, rewind and dodge.

Second arguable ability: controlling time in space by a gravitational pull.
(Basically means that you can make a "bubble" between your hands. And in this "bubble", time is frozen, but the outside world isn't. Or other way around. Think if you could make these wherever you want. Example: you are fighting Batman, Thor and Raiden at the Same time. You are almost at death's door and you don't know what to do. You can do multiple things like: stop time and kill them. Or escape. Make a master plan that needs perfect timing and positioning. BUT! If you want to look like Grim Reaper, make this bubble around them. Stop time inside these, do whatever you want. OR, fast forward time inside them a couple of million years and walk away.
(You could win every superhero even without this. )

Last but not least: you can live REALLY REALLY easy and chill life.
The other powers are relatively useless in real life but time control literally makes you a god. Just freeze time and you can be anywhere in the world and do anything without people realizing you did anything. Physical abilities don't help you much. Time travel rules.
travel back in time to avoid akward moments
More comments about Time Control

What the crap is wrong with you time control people, You can do basically everything, I'll tell you why all the others stink, or that telekinesis can do it better. Time control, if you go back in time you will probably kill yourself or just make yourself just not exist, what if you go forward in time to get something, and you land in the middle of a gun fight, the possibilities are endless-for killing yourself. Teleportation-great you can get any where, on earth, what if you mess up and teleport yourself into a wall, your atoms mix and you die or you have a wall in you forever, plus, with telekinesis we can stop you, stop your heart, stop the signals from firing in your brain so that you cannot use your powers. Sadly I cannot argue with omnipotence or reality warping as it is sometimes known but maybe, as someone pointed out for telekinesis, you might not be able to control it and could, conceivably, cause you to kill yourself. Plus, if you are faster at all and you are more creative you can outsmart them or stop their brains. Invisibility, how did it get up here, it stinks, great people can't see you, what if you stopped light waves from reaching you except for the tiniest parts of your eyes so you can see, plus as always you can easily kill them, and in this case you can send a visible wave out, and they will become invisible. Control all matter- ok telekinesis that doesn't do quite everything and has a stupid name. Healing ability, ok, no, we can do that if we had telekinesis, but we have 1000000000000000 other things that we can do. Super speed, doesn't improve reaction time so you are going to kill yourself by running into something, or if you go to fast you will fly off the earth, or rip your molecules apart. plus we can stop them. Control major elements, again stupid name for telekinesis but with far less powers. Shape-shifting, great, you can control someone with extra powers now, and you still have a million ways to kill them. That is the top 10 other than this amazing one.
Assuming the use of this ability doesn't negatively impact your physical and mental state through the stress of exerting your powers, telekenesis is a power with infinite possibilities. The ability to control any element, influence any force or movement, and manipulate any physical action is far better than any other power. Imagine being able to cure cancer by destroying cancerous cells in a person's body, or influencing a sports match from miles away while watching it on television. Better yet, why not use the ability to change your own physique? Telekenesis implies the ability to control kinetic energy, which would allow you to work out muscles and direct nutrients to replenish them without ever having to go to a gym. You could even theorectically control and/or defy gravity, using this ability to fly or give yourself super strength. The potential here is limitless.
Taking into account that its the movement of anything with your mind then flying is the first other power you could do because all you would need to do is move yourself. The second is invisibility, due to current theories that say that light is part particle so you could control the direction of light and bend it around you resulting in people only seeing light that has come from behind U. Super strength is possible but that depends on how strong the TK ability is. You could "stop" time due to just "freezing" everything around you. The ability to control the atoms within your own body would mean, with the right training, that you could refresh your cells inevitably, resulting in as long a life as desired. Mind control wouldn't be necessary due to just controlling the persons body voice box and all. It simply isn't just one power it is practically is all ability's mixed together and simplified into one name. I mean whats cooler?
More comments about Telekenesis

Means all powers in the universe with no limitations except personal ones. You would also be immune to all forms of harm and could make any friends you have immortal.
Omnipotence is basically God. You can do anything you desire and you'd rule over everything. You would be immune to everything!
Omnipotence contains everything listed. If you were omnipotent you could do anything. If you were omnipotent you would be god. Nothing would defy you, not even logic. You would be ultimate.

4Control All Matter
How is this not the best? It'd be INCREDIBLY awesome to have the ability to control all matter. Imagine if you were really tight on cash and needed some food, you could just use your powers to make some. You could eradicate world hunger, solve over population (you could create a whole new planet for the surplus)
Today with my friends I asked if you could have one super power, what would it be! At first I said control time, like the way Jimmy Neutron's T.V. /life remote did. then I thought it. I would like to manipulate stuff. CONTROL ATOMS. It is just like this except different name. then I looked up "top ten super powers you would never think of" and I got here. amazing how life works
This is far better than invisibility, as control of all matter would give one the ability to make their own atoms colorless, thus appearing invisible.

Teleportaion is so sick cause you can hit your girls house get to work and visit your cousins in Ireland all in the same few minutes so it's sick nasty being able to just teleport!
Teleportation is one of the greatest powers ever, and here is why: The ability to teleport anywhere in the wi else it in the universe, so long as you displace solids, liquids, and gasses, you would be unstoppable. Say you are in a universe where other people have super powers, if you fight against any one with a ability listed above, time control for instance, so what if they can freeze time? Teleport once behind them and teleport with your hand sticking out into their head, displacing the matter, or in other words blowing their head apart. This Will work against any other power as well.
Teleportation can be used for: (Offense: kick/punch from behind or the side after charging at them from the front; grab the person, and teleport them underwater or somewhere dangerous and teleport away) (Defense: dodge opponent or run away) Generally useful: Late? Not any more! See that creepy person that you do not want to talk to? Bam! You're gone showing off: for that hot chick in school I mean, how is this not number 1?
More comments about Teleportation

you can look at some one and they wont know
I'm right behind you, invisible, you just can't see me, understand how awesome invisibility is?
You could some damage with this one
More comments about Invisibility

7Healing Ability
This power could be very useful when injured you don't have to go the hospital or better yet you can heal your self and others. Many people will see you as an important person because of this powerful and amazing ability.
Jesus gonna get jealous

8Super Speed
travel around the world in a minute?


you can go anywhere on earth and wont take know time at all
Run around somebody really fast so he can't breath
More comments about Super Speed

Shapeshifting is much more affective than you would think. The Actual name of it is changing your physiology. And it doesn't always have to be natural. Get your heart ripped out, make another organ take over for it. Get stabbed? Grow another arm ten times stronger. You in theory you can have other powers: Like Super Strength, or altering your brain to make you smarter? Grow a laser blast in your eye for laser vision? Make yourself twenty times larger for growth? The possibilities are endless!
Live this you can take the form of anything you can think of spider for small places, dinosaur and other big crap for scaring of eenemies or someone/thing you don't like
Want to fly? Shift into a bird. Want to breathe underwater? Dolphin. Turn invisible? Itty bitty ant. Get an easy $20? Shapeshift into a celebrity and charge for autographs.
Come on. What other super power could beat this one?
More comments about Shapeshifting

10Control Gravity
With this you can create black holes for mass destruction. Wormholes to teleport you anywhere you please. You can control the direction of gravity, having anyone you hate just "Float away into space..."
Simply not many think of the power, meaning it has more strength than most may know.
Very good, not many people would think about that.

The Contenders

11Control Major Elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air and lightning)
You could've compound anything using these 4 elements and create something new. For example you could've combine water and air then, you would get ice. Or combining water and fire to make water vapor and use it as a fog to hide whenever you are in a fight. Also creating water vapor and using fire and air controlling ability to warm air to make clouds. Then Condense the clouds by warming more air and adding more clouds and wait till it becomes heavier then adding some water so you can get a rain, by getting a rain you can form a lightning and control it. Or just control any of these 5 elements as your major weapon without combining any of them. One more thing you can turn your whole body into any elements you like such as, smoke(vapor), magma, lightning, fire, water, air, Earth, Sand etc. There are way, way many more things to add I just listed some of them.
You'd be able to be Percy Jackson, Skulduggery Pleasant, Avatar (the air bender) and Pikachu at the same time!
I like this but controlling all elements (like sound, fire, water, ice, air, lightning, time, earth, gravity and space) is AMAZING!

12Super Intelligence
This will be so sweet to have imagine you being the smartest being in the world. No body will call you a retard when you have this power on your side. You will be unstoppable and you will be amazingly powerful with this badass ability you know what they say intelligence is power and no body will boss you around and you are even better that albert the scientist you figure this out in a matter of minute and can amaze many people even creating impossible machine to go and have an amazing adventure.
I agree with this statement intelligence is power why does t anybody choose this powers to be the main one? Intelligence will be your number one weapon just image the possibilities they are indeed endless.
How is this not number one? Seriously this power grants you access to all the other powers on the list, all you need to do is brew some sort of concoction or soup up your DNA and your good to go.
More comments about Super Intelligence


You can never be hurt! And you can escape in any situation. If you are in a house on fire, you can just walk right through the fire or the wall! If you are caught and chained up, the solid object can go right through you, and you can just walk right through the villain! Best thing EVER!

Life would be so much easier with telepathy.

Didn't study? Read the teacher's mind.
Late for work? Make your boss not care.
Want to get rich? Make Oprah buy you stuff. Or just make store personel give it to you.
Want to go on a vacation. Just make some random person give you a lift. Make the airline let you fly free. Repeat similar actions for stuff you do on your vacation.
Telepathy is awesome. And it is actually real lug.

Man, cloning would be awesome, just hold a hundred dollar bill, clone and then you'd have $200
Would be able to do nearly anything, get the dishes done in a millisecond

16Super Strength
Crapping volcano style, pretty cool
Col like super! 111
More comments about Super Strength

17Ability to Absorb Other Powers
Once you met somebody with a power and they used it you could do the same along with all past powers you learned. You couldn't be touched!
All the powers in one

18Ability to Fly
I'd love to fly. It would be so awesome. I would fly around the whole world, grab a gun and pretend I'm going to shoot people, (i wouldn't really shoot, but pretend, because people always shoot birds.


One of my main dreams is to fly so that's why I want to be a pilot, and I wouldn't mind super reflexes. It would be awesome because you wouldn't be late to anything and the travel would be easy and running away from fights would seem almost impossible to fail at
That is kind of sick you would go up in the air with a gun

19To Control the Friction of Molecules

20Super Agility
With super agility you can get into a fight and never be touched. You also can jump super high. Like your always doing parkour

21Harness Dark Matter


That'd be so badass. Ping, ping ping. All that good stuff. It'd be pretty hard to kill someone that was bulletproof.

23Thoughts Become Reality
Basically omnipotence but... It's the same
You could kill some with just your mind.
Why is this down here!
Its better then time control because you can control time without having he power to control time

24Create Forcefields
Force fields are clearly the best power. If the forcefields are invincible, as they should be, you are also invincible, because you could constantly have one around you. You can crush people by making a forcefield around them, then shrink it. You can also create one inside someone, then expand it, killing your foe. You can move things by making a forcefield around it or under it, then moving the forcefield around, including yourself, giving you the power of flight. Also, these things are indestructible, imagine getting hit with one of those. You could also control peoples actions my making a forcefield around them, then moving it to make them move. This is definitely the most underrated power. And those were just the most obvious things you could do with this power. If you could control who/what can pass through it, you could have an area that nobody could get in/out of that you didn't want them to. If you could control the colour of the forcefield, you can make it look like its surroundings, allowing you to be able to blend in. Also, if you are in complete control of the appearance of the forcefield, you could decide for light rays to pass through the forcefield and its contents, rendering the contents invisible.
Not only you can defend your self but also create a force field inside your foes and make the force field bigger until he/she explodes. You could also use it to move objects with it... I believe this is a very underrated power
you would be abel to defened you or a friend

25Absorb Energy

26Ability to Control, Generate, and Absorb Lightning
This power is so awesome. Think of it, you can shock people!
Think of it as cole's powers from ifamous 2 or infamous 1, I would so shoot my science teacher with a lighting gernade

27Ability to Stretch

28Ability to Create Fire
I love the movie The last air bender so you can c y I would love this power. Also I am 10 so I play this kind of stuff with my frciends al the time so cool right

29Earth Control
You could fly, stop bullets, crush people and stop things from following you.

30Stopping All Powers
This power actually is really ironic.

Many dislike it because you'd see everyone around you die out, but really, who gives? You're immortal, the one fear mankind has is now gone, death will not happen to you and you could make tons of cash, make yourself a god, or simple live life with pretty much no worries, because you can do, whatever you like without that fear.
Immortality is so cool it should be in the first place cause the ability to live for ever is the most coolest thing that a human could ever imagine thank you
Awesome power, no kinks, and after all who are dear to you are gone, Live life, be free, write a book, rule the world, watch civilization advance then die out, and

32Reality Warping
Being a reality warper is basically being omnipotent. When you warp reality you can do whatever you please. When warping reality you can have any power and literally anything and if you don't know of something you can do then trust me, with reality warping you can do it. I mean look at the Beyonder and the one above all, some people say they are omnipotent other say reality warper it really doesn't matter is the same thing. I don't even know how is this power still in the contenders list and not in the top ten list, hell, why isn't this power number 1?
Reality warping is really cool because anything you want can come true even if it is impossible or it is against the law of physics. You can just change reality by jut saying, emotion and you can have absolute power by just your thought. Its really Cool!
You could make true anything you wanted. You could mess with reality and fool anyone.

33Extra Stamina

34Mind Control
Make everyone else do exactly what you want. You could make muggers and theives put down their guns and walk themselves to jail and once you've got a hold of every important person in the world then you can rule it.
Mind control is basically, you could take over the world in an instant. As long as it doesn't exhaust you, you could walk up to someone, be like 'yo, you're my slave now' and they wouldn't question it. Instant army.

35Control Ice and Water
2 for 1 power is pretty awesome. Also, you could control about 40.5% of the earth is covered with ice and water. That's a lot of swagitude

36Make Things Appear Out of Mid-air

37Power of Infinity
You could have infinite grenades, Ferraris, rpg, etc... Anything you want it could never stop

Create fire from the oxygen in the air around you... Or the oxygen in something/someone's body... Yes.
This would be so sick!

39Control Weather
sunny day, rainy day revenge?


The psi Power to control light with the mind. To the greater extent, one could make themself invisible, concentrate light particles/waves into lasers and manipulate any part of the light spectrum making Photokinesis the "father" of Autokinesis, Lumokinesis, Optikinesis, Magnetokinesis, etc. Can be used to create illusions. This can be used to generate light shields/force fields, and project an healing energy too. One could create a blast of light which impales enemies, or even create a ball or shape of light to blast. A theory to this power is that you could group together photons into a powerful solid blast.
This ones cool because you can make light bounce off you - making you invisible.
Also you could have a force field of light with a 'light sword'

41Wolverine Claws

42Changing Textures
The classic powers of the absorbing man one of hulks most famous villains! This power rules I mean it would be even better if you could manipulate the substance once you have absorbed it for instance if you absorbed same valuable mettle that you only had a small amount of you should be able to expand it in order for your entire body to be made of the substance and once it was absorbed it should be able to be moulded easily like if you absorbed steel you should be able to turn your hand into a sword... Etc
For example, if you touched medal, your body would be medal. But of course you can change yourself back into your own skin or else this power would suck!
Woah that would be awesome if I touched a waffle I would be half waffle!

48Manipulation of Boundaries
Considering everything has a boundary, manipulation of boundaries should be the #1 in the list.

You just can't win against a boundary manipulator
