Top Ten Best Superpowers


The Top Ten

1 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 ...more

It is one of the most powerful powers, but that doesn't make it cool! Everyone would be scared of you! And you'd get bored eventually with that much power. This power is too powerful to be cool and too weak to be useful. If you're one of those POWER IS EVERYTHING people you should have just put omnipotence. Please look at gravity control. This makes you awesome because you're not stuck as a God!

This power is so OP it is ridiculous

Imagine fighting someone who is omnipotent, you would still win because you would just pause time not allowing them to do anything then just destroy them

It can be useful in everyday life, no-one will ever be able to touch you because if they did you can just rewind time and know exactly what to do

You can:

. Make yourself immortal

. Don't everything perfectly by reversing time and trying again

.make it impossible for any number of people to beat you

.revive yourself if someone somehow does kill you

.do what ever you want however you want

Some would say that if the enemy is indestructible no matter what then you loose but I disagree because you could just freeze time for his/her body so they can never move again (assuming you can't just speed up time for them and make them rapidly age)

Even in everyday life you can know all questions and answers to a test or know if a girl will ...more

Time Control scares me. There are too many variables to destroying the existence of everything.

However; to me, this power has to be seriously limited for me to possess. For example, I want to consciously exist, in real-time, up to 60 minutes in the future which means I can see whats going to happen in every second up to 1 hour before it happens. I would also need the ability to turn this off and on at will since people are consistently plagued with decisions. I would be making hundreds of decisions based on what I see and then seeing all these scenarios for this 1 hour future change based on those decisions.

To stop time means to exceed the constant of time... which is theoretically impossible, even for a superpower. I like to think of time as a million mile wide, infinitely long cord made of an indestructible material that no creature in the universe can stop from moving in one direction.

I would never travel back in time for fear of erasing my existence or the ...more

Middle of Test, stop time, walk around the room, look at the papers. Win.
In a fight, stop time, walk away. Win.
Something horrible just happened on the news? Turn back time and warn the right people. Win
You wanna become super rich? Go to the future, then come back and patent the most popular future invention. Win.
Feel like being a perv? Well... you're a horrible person. Win.
Getting older and wanna feel younger? Turn back time on your body. Win.
Mess up a date? Turn back and don't screw up. Win.
Wanna make a bet on the superbowl? You know what to do. Win.
Need even more money? Go to Vegas and get some bank. Win.

Now, if you're time control powers don't work like I envision, well... lose

2 Super Speed

Amazing number one superpower other than death and lightning. I made up a superhero called shadow with all this and ghost mode or death mode even an unbreakable shield and teleportation the are THE BEST SUPERPOWERS SPEED, DEATH, INVINCIBILITY, LIGHTNING, UNBRACABLE SHIELD and TELEPORTATION. That is the best superpowers and all those should be the TOP TEN HERE BUT THEIR NOT SO SCREW THIS!

Yes! Life would be so easy! Whats above this, telekinesis and time control? Well, telekinesis must still consume some energy, while you can go grab or throw or whatever in under a second. And time control ruins the fun in life. Why go forward and see yourself being successful when you can go through every aspect of life? Why go back and experience a fun moment when you know exactly how it will turn out? One last thought: with super speed, we could stop time. Wouldn't that be awesome? So bam, this is the best power.

Speed is incredible as it not only raises your speed but allows you to see think act and respond faster. Your able to vibrate your self so that you can faze through objects but also punch people's insides to stop them in their tracks crippling them with pain. Not to mention you can rip out someone's heart without any outside damage. You can access lightning, and in the flash comics he is able to run around so fast that it was stated if he were to run his fastest he could pick a planet and destroy it. He can create after images. You can fight someone learn all the punches and actions that they will do run back I'm time and fight the same fight to win. From running so fast your punches become extremely powerful. There's so much more to it as well this is a short breakdown

Not really if you went really fast you might go fast enough to lose control and if you were fast enough to go around the world in les than a second you'd die of all the walls your head went through

3 Telekenesis

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 ...more

1. You could rip the fabric of reality apart and destroy everything that ever existed if done wrong.
2. It has a VERY high chance of failing. Example: You try and pick up a building with your mind, but then it falls on you and kills you.
3. Telekinesis is too unbalanced. Flying is probably the best solution. Now, many of these superpowers could break the fabric of reality. Like, super speed? Nope. If you ran that fast, your body would be on fire. Super Strength? No. Every time you tried to open a door, you would break it. Teleportation? HELL NO. That would break the fabric of reality. Time control? It would break the fabric of reality again.

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.

If I had the power telekinesis I would probably screw it up and not just for myself but for everybody but why I choose this is because I needed ideas for something not saying what and this is the best out of all the other ones plus it goes with what I am doing

4 Invisibility

you can look at some one and they wont know

If I were invisible like Violet Parr, I wouldn't be as stupid or embarrassed

I'd want invisibility, which would mean the clothes I wear turn invisible when I do - codgtamk34

Illusion manipulation is better because you can create the illusion of not being there, practically making yourself invisible. But it also has so many more possibilities!
Vote for Illusion manip, it's better! - neehawgamer

5 Omnipotence

You are a bloody God. How more powerful can you get with omnipotent powers? Time control and telekinesis are seriously in first and second place? Please, with the powers of a God, you could obliterate a time user and a telekinetic with a single thought. You defy the laws of reality and physics along with having a complete arsenal of every known power at your disposal. You can defy destiny and predict the future, wipe out universes or create universes at will, you are immortal and invincible, and people would be absolutely helpless against you. Someone shoots at you with a machine gun and you can vaporize the bullets or even render the gun useless before their finger moves towards the trigger. You can make people whom you love immortal, prevent the sun from going into its fatal stages, create life, have divine authority over everyone or everything, and basically do anything you want and no one can or will stop you. You can literally create your own dimension if Earth gets tiring and ...more - LandisMorgenstern

With this, some people say that they would get bored. Well, you could just manipulate your mind and make yourself enjoy something. Or, you could erase your memories of something you enjoyed and re-enjoy it. And if you are all-powerful, then you could limit some of your power as to enjoy life. This is mainly to contradict others false ideas about this power. If I were to put all the reasons it's superior, this would be much longer. - LordOfLight

There is another to define omnipotence like if one only has litterally infinite and unlimited amount power and that the one who hold that kind of power and unlimited potential could only be feeling pain if another omnipotent being harmed him or her for example. GOD THE MOTHER gave birth to GOD THE FATHER when she was a virgin but she is not the virgin mary and JESUS CHRIST is not GOD THE FATHER nor GOD THE MOTHER. GOD THE MOTHER and GOD THE FATHER are both omnipotent in some ways at least both can create 10 dimensions between 10 and 30 consecutive days and nights or could create thousands of planets just like this precious planet earth you all mortals live on and could create thousands new suns if wanted to and could manipulate stop any sun from growing bigger or becoming smaller and heat not increasing too much and not decreasing too much either.

You can do anything, absolute time control, absolute manipulation of existence, absolute manipulation of concept, you are everything.

6 Control Gravity

Absolute control over gravity is easily the greatest power. Time control has too large of a margin for error that could lead to unforeseen consequence at a catastrophic level. Telekinesis is probably the closest on this list in terms of raw potential and usability to gravitational control, but it does have some drawbacks. At its core, gravity manipulation would give the user all abilities associated with telekinesis. Simply by changing an object, organism, or particle's center of gravitational pull (i.E. the direction it reacts to as "down") and the amount of gravitational pull on the target, the user can cause the target to move through space at incredible speeds, slow it down, make it weightless, implode, or any number of other possibilities, similar to telekinesis. However, unlike telekinesis, gravitational manipulation would not require constant concentration. Once a direction and level of force was applied, the user can step back and let physics do the rest. This frees ...more

Ocahco Uraraka, is that you? - RoseWeasley

This one is a lot better than telekinesis. you can basically do everything. you could make it so oxygen molecules are forced closer to you (so you could breathe in space), for example. everyone here's got the right idea, but WAY too little understanding of how the universe really works. I will, however, have to keep those things a secret until the world is ready, sadly. :-(

This power lets you make bullets or lasers hit the ground before they hit you. It also means you could do ninja parkour, fly, have telekinesis, be super strong (by reducing weight of target), and above all: let other people run up walls and on ceilings! You would be crazy popular. As for God powers, who wants to be that powerful? You'd get bored very quickly!

You wouldn't be strong, they would be weak, but yeah, same consequence - fwed

7 Shapeshifting

Shapeshifting is everything.

You can make yourself invulnerable or simply give yourself super-healing, and you could be functionally immortal because, aside from healing and/or invulnerability, you could control your own aging process. You can shapeshift into something with the ability to have any other power, like flying or super-strength, and you don't even have to become a bird or anything. Just imagine "me but with the power of flight" and you can alter yourself to a form to be able to fly, even if it's externally indistinguishable in other ways. You could become a master of disguise. You could transform into any animal or give yourself any elemental powers, or the fun powers like stretching and changing size. And of course the social and vanity applications go without saying.

So really a shapeshifter can transform themselves to be able to do anything, including everything else on the list.

You want to fly, you can shift into a bird and fly, you wanna go somewhere sneakily, turn into a fly or an ant. I don't know how this isn't first

Shapeshifting is the most powerful superpower in the universe

Awesome power

8 Healing Ability

Dead pool is just plain op so how cool would it be to never be able to die. And plus he has cancer so his healing powers are fighting against that

This is better than stopping time. Rather than wait weeks for it to heal, wait 5 seconds - codgtamk34

Everyone already has healing ability, all you guys are just talking about increased healing ability which is not the title (sorry for being a smart aleck) - fwed

I would choose this only if you could heal others as well

9 Teleportation

Awesome power

Uber Pool? No thanks - fwed

Incredible. Can telepelort to anee place ever - reviewbrahfan

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.

10 Control All Matter

Honestly, if you had complete knowledge of matter and control of this, you would be inconceivably powerful. You can alter your own cells, making you immune to anything. You can also stop your own aging, by making your cells healthier. You could cure cancer, by just getting rid of bad cells. More cell possibilities, but moving on.
If you could also change the properties of matter, you could change how they function. For example, one complicated thing would be mind control or changing memories. It would be insanely complex, but if you understood neurons you could alter the way they are functioning, thus manipulate someones mind or memories. If you could make your body into something made of light, while keeping it functional (however that'd work) maybe you could move at the speed of light? I don't know about that one, but you could probably alter the speed of your cells either way.

Teleport by moving your body one cell at a time (which would be difficult to do properly or ...more

If you can have this power not even a person who is invincible could live through this as you can pretty much erase them

This should be number one

Should be #1

The Contenders

11 Ability to Fly

GET THIS TO #1. Now while it may be slower then teleporting, you can see everything! Like, in a war, YOU WOULD BE THE PERFECT SCOUT. And, you could just shoot the enemy soldiers from the sky without them even knowing! FLYING FOR DA WIN. Plus, if you teleported quick enough, you could break the fabric of reality and rip all the universes in half. But if you could fly, the only problem would be skyscrapers, (which, to be honest, are pretty rare) So flying is better then teleporting!

This is one cool ability - StarGirl23

I like the ability I have always wanted a budgie so having wings and flying as fast as a falcon would be great! Be a shapeshifter would also be cool too! If I had 2 superpower then it would be wings and shape shifting

Flying would be so much fun! You could do it when you're bored, and it would be your new way to experience the outdoors. I always dreamed that I could fly. Go flying!

You can do better then that. You can move mountains, rocks, boulders, make earthquakes or ravines, and if your crazy, move entire planets and moons ( only the solid part). - AbduZine

Crapping volcano style, pretty cool

You can also lift cars, buildings, and do what ever you want with out someone stopping you.

13 Super Intelligence

Super Intelligence seems too crude a name, but I can only assume that the brain's capacity used is near or at 100%. In all honesty, we use 100% of our brain, but only 12% to 15% of all areas at once, aka brain capacity. Sadly, it is believed that dolphins use around 18% to 19% of their brain's capacity.

The realm of what a human can accomplish using more than 20% of their brain capacity is highly speculative and ultimately a mystery. But for the superpower wannabes like myself, let us assume that using 100% of our brains capacity would breach the realm of omnipotence, which by its own right would be awesome, but I believe in God so I'll leave that responsibility to him. So let's dial it back to say 75%. That means that everything that the brain controls is incredibly more powerful and since we have control over our brains, we can manipulate everything our brains can. Imagine our eyes seeing, our touch interacting, hearing everything on every wavelength with the energy of ...more

Underrated superpower. I do realize that it may not sound as awesome as some of the other things on this list, but think about it: you could artificially have every other superpower on this list.
Let's take the ability to fly, for example. Wing-suits and jetpacks are currently being developed and revised, and if we have super intelligence on our side, then we can fine-tune these inventions to the point where we can casually fly around like it's part of our everyday lives.
Mind control. We are making devices and VR simulations that respond to our brain activity. With super intelligence to enhance that (and time, of course), the applications that these technologies have can be expanded massively. Plus, there's hypnosis.
The ability to heal. We can print skin cells with the help of a 3D printer, map the brain, build prosthetic robot limbs, and we are even developing a soft robotic heart. Heck, there's even Rex, a fully bionic man who can walk, talk, and breathe. Super ...more

With super intelligence, you could figure out how to create superpowers. - holographic

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 am never called a retard, as I am already the smartest in the grade. But I do love this power.

14 Control Major Elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air and lightning)

I have always loved the elements, and you put it in a way that made me love it even more. By the way, if someone had Omni-Elemental Manipulation, he/she would also have Meta Space-Time Manipulation, which is a lot more and better than just plain old time travel. Another point is that if you have time-travel, it's useless if you're dead. With Space-Time Manipulation, you can erase a telekinetic from existence. Elemental Manipulation also grants you Elemental Speed, which is pretty much the same as Super-Speed. Light Manipulation includes Invisibility. Matter Manipulation is just a sub-power of Telekinesis, is associated with Elemental Manipulation, and it won't give you full control of all matter. Gravity is also included. By the way, just because you have Shapeshifting doesn't mean that you can transform into anything--unless you have the Omnifarious ability. There is also Elemental Healing. And with Omnipotence, you can only apply only in your respective fiction. Omnipotence is the ...more

By the way the list says MAJOR ELEMENTS, you listed a bunch of sub - branches, true with all those you would be very powerful but you don't so you know... - fwed

I think I need to explain precisely how completely amazing this power would be. Hell, alone, a couple of these could be in the top 5, but together? It's almost impossible to beat it out.

Now, I'd consider there to be more than just fire, water, earth, air, and lightning in the "major elements" category, but for the sake of time, I'll only cover those five in this comment, in order of weakest to strongest (in my opinion).

Firstly, there's Water. Now, don't get me wrong, Water is an insanely good ability on its own, easily enough to kill someone in a heartbeat, but it's the weakest of the five. Still, it's not weak by any means. Straight-up tearing the water out of somebody, controlling their blood, turning the rain into a giant machine gun, or just straight-up using the entire OCEAN as a weapon. Plus, there's ice and steam, both incredibly useful in their own right. Sure, it won't be murdering time manipulators or anything, but it can eliminate entire nations in ...more

Again, ice and steam are sub - branches made from water and air, so unless there is someone else with your ability, you can't use those. Turning rain into a machine gun is a bit much no? How much power do you have? You would need to be able to sharpen the water, and you can't do that really. - fwed

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 can't combine them without serious power or two people so there - fwed

What about ice

Technically, you can only not die, you can still be damaged beyond repair e.g a machine gun ripping the living daylights out of you - fwed

How fast would you fly? That is the real question if you ask me. What if you could fly as fast as you could walk or run on the ground? I think that would kinda crappy but it wouldn't be without it's uses.

I would love to fly but I'm afraid of heights and you could run into a plane or a bird.

Flight lets you go anywhere anytime. Really important for a superhero. Plus imagine the potential in combat.

18 Immortality

Immortality is not what most of you think it is. It is not deathlessness, meaning that you will never die. By its definition, mortality is life. The "i'm" you can look at as the word infinity or constant meaning simply that you will always have life.

This can be taken two ways: First, you reach an age past pubescence when you're body reaches its maximum potential and you simply stop aging. By this account, you can still be harmed or killed without living forever. Second, you experience what is commonly known as rebirth. During each death, whether by force or through natural occurrences, you would be reborn with all the knowledge and experience from before your demise. Consider it a type of reincarnation, only it is still your existence.

Personally, I would choose the latter.

Deathlessness, or never dying, has always been one small part of omnipotence. Some people argue that if a person (as in human) is incapable of dying, they would also suffer the inescapable ...more

20 Telepathy

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.

Depends. Is it one person on demand, or everyone at all times? - Cyri

Telepathy is the power to communicate with others without speaking, just thinking. In some cases, those with telepathy also read the mind of the one they are "speaking" to. But, those with telepathy do not have mind control, which is a whole different ability. Just because it is all happening in the mind does not mean it is all the same. If you didn't study for a test, you can read your teacher's mind, but chances are she is just thinking about a dumb Youtube video she saw. You can communicate with her, but all that will do will allow you to not raise your hand. In conclusion, telepathy is a good power but really can't compare to the others since it is just a substitute for good, old fashioned conversations.

Absolute, complete power. Somebody attacks you? They've put the gun in their mouth and blown their face off completely willingly. Want someone to fall in love with you? They already have. Who needs invisibility when you can make people forget you instantly after seeing you. Want to be President? Control the entire country to support you. Or better, subconsciously manipulate minds across the planet to control stock prices and the entire free market. Make billions in seconds. Raise an army with a single thought - your power can make people believe in your cause to the extent that they'll die for you. Best part? Nobody knows it's happening unless you want them to. Mind control isn't possessing a single body at a time. It's subtly or completely controlling anyone's thoughts in anyone's heads at any distance. No power could beat it, because why would anyone want to harm you when they love you so much, or better, don't even know you exist?

How is this not first. You can literally remove your opponent from existance this is basically a more powerful version of being omnipotent

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.

24 To Control the Friction of Molecules

You can burn your enemies by moving their atoms quickly. You can also turn a liquid to a solid or a solid to a liquid by breaking and putting together bonds on the molecular scale. And don't forget that like most super heros, you can fly by making your atoms lighter than the air. But that is just a few examples of controling the friction of molecules; you can do so much more and be almost impossible to be defeated! I'd want that power... Would you?


You can kick ass while looking like a smart ass by saying stuff like "You know, we just learned this in science yesterday, your burning up because I'm moving your atoms too fast! Well. It's getting late I gotta get going! See you when your atoms are dead! " And walk off knowing you roasted someone (LITERALLY AND METAPHORICALLY! ) That's a win win!

Just imagine you see your mom through the window and you forgot your chores... Clone 10 of you and get those chores done in minutes and then delete them all before she can even take a step through the door!

27 Create Forcefields

I gave this to a character in my fan fiction, made her turn evil, and now I'm looking up 'how to kill a god' just so the good guys can stop her. Seriously. Think about it.

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

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 ...more

you would be abel to defened you or a friend

Fire. I love fire storm because of fire

29 Super 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

Would suck without having super durability (without that the speed will turn your insides to lemonade) but with super durability and super agility you win

It's certainly a very interesting power and one that would be fun to have.

Hello you could be like spider-man

30 Earth Control

Favorite one ever

It would be a cool power to have if you want 1 power then you could have 4

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

Imagine if a bully threats you... - RainbowArtist191

31 Curse Casting


The bible says that if you cast a curse then it goes back to you so rethink this through - potatogurl

I meant Bible not bible - potatogurl

This power has many uses, you can pretty much do anything to someone if it is fueled with your anger and hate. I mean what is not to like. Oh yeah, that if your a good guy you are pretty much powerless, unless you do not care about doing terrible things to bad guys.

32 Ability to Control, Generate, and Absorb Lightning

Pokemon ability LIGHTNING ROD! - fwed


According to science, everything is made of an enormous amount of energy, or lightning if you will, so you basically have the power of telekinesis with this one.

This power is so awesome. Think of it, you can shock people!

33 Time Travel

This is everything I've always wanted, imagine a embarrassing scene just happened and you wanna fix it; BAM done.

This power is awesome!


Will do bad things. Look at my comment on number one time control. It starts like this "This power sucks! "

34 Ability to Shoot Webs

But I'm not spiderman - potatogurl

Imagine being able to shoot webs and make them stick to the air (somehow) and not just buildings, wow, epic, spider-man is the best hero ever!

Spiderman webbs!

I LOVE spider-man!

35 Walk Through Walls

Totally awesome dude

This would be awesome because if you were in a jail cell you could just walk right through and be out of prison.

This would be higher if it were called "density change", but you could pretty much do that with control over gravity

Be just like Kitty Pryde fun fun fun.

36 Invulnerability

Boi this op

Can reject one or more forms of damage (Example: Superman)

37 Cyrokinesis

Best power ever, only if you could control already made ice

No one could hurt you if you could turn your body to ice. You can could freeze anyone you disliked and you could travel at inhuman speeds while sliding on ice

Do you really think your time control will still work while you're frozen in a block of ice?

This could be cool - Adventurur2

38 Magnetism

It should be more specific if you were a magnet or you could control metal. - ListSinner

That would be really cool if you were a superhero. It wouldn't only work with metal, but if this includes electromagnetic waves, you’d be able to disorient anyone.

Say someone's about to shoot you, you create a magenetic field and turn the bullet around. Your still alive and your attacker is dead, there is no proof you killed them

It could mean being magnetic, but it could also mean that people are attracted to you. Everyone's your friend now!

40 Laser Vision

No Cyclops lost his power to control his laser beams when he banged his head falling out of a plane

You can shoot lasers beams out of your eyes and melt through walls and other objects

If your lasers melt things then they aren't the same as Cyclops.

But wouldn't you be not able to see

41 Ability to Shoot Acid

This is actually a really good power, it's like having a green version of lazier eyes but it coming out of your hands or your mouth, and maybe even your butt


When would you ever use this? For those many, many times you get to prevent crimes?

This power is cool you can shoot acid out of your hands to fight your foes.
When a robber has a gun you can shoot acid at it so the gun can melt.

Lysergic? Its been done.

42 Emotion Control

You could become either a super hero or a super villan. If you were to be in a fight, make them loose all confidence, give them crippling sadness. They're now so sad that they can not move. You've won. You could instill fear in those who look upon you as an inferior.

That is so sad

I heard that sad people give the truth more happen, and it was scientifically proven!

You could change others emotions so if someone was upset just make them happy

43 Breathe Under Water

But you would need GOGGLES! - fwed

No one could follow you under the water and you could learn all about the ocean and marine life

44 Sight

Your spirt comes out of your body and can go anywhere to see anything high in the sky and when your down looking your spirt go's back into your body. While your spirt go's where ever your body stay's where it is.

No, this is more like supersight. You can see things really far away.

We can all already do this dumass - Bubbyboop

45 Pyrokinesis

Create fire from the oxygen in the air around you... Or the oxygen in something/someone's body... Yes.

Awesome, but truthfully with elemental manipulation you could have this and more.

If you had pyrokinesis like Charlie McGee (Stephen King's Firestarter) your power could be limitless

She was only 8 or 9 when she destroyed a house like "a little girls cardboard playhouse in the flame of a blowtorch" and vaporize bullets that would have otherwise killed/injured her, and it has been indicated that she might be able to control the sun eventually. Pyrokinesis should be much higher on the list than 72nd - GamingGodPrime

46 Heat Vision

Snakes have it to sense prey. Not a power


47 Ability to Understand How All Things Work

Sylar from heroes

This means you could kill anybody with a power and gain their power.

48 Change the Rules of Physics

This superpower doesn't apply to a certain person or area, and since this superpower needs to be a little more convenient, we could say that it only works on the planet that you're currently on.
You can control gravity, friction, force, and lots of other categories within physics.
The uses of this power is unlimited, and can almost only be used for destruction.
It's pretty clear what the downside is, but don't mind it, if you use it with incredible care, you could manage to not destroy earth within the first few days.

49 Create Portals

While I see why people like "being god" I see portal being the most legit and powerful superpower.


#1 Enemy is charging at you, you have lots of options to choose from, you can either dodge or maybe trap him making him charge into the portal, or maybe use his inertia and just teleport him straight into the ground!

#2 You find a ranged opponent, you can either (Again) dodge or deflect! Pop a portal and make them taste their own bullets!

#3 (Now more on a technical sitenote) PERPETUM MOBILE!, 2 portals on top of eachother and "ta da", infinite energy.

#4 Assuming you can create portals anywhere you please you can easily move, destroy or create things. You can blow someone's brains out by punching their brain while it's still in their head, you can make a portal to a planet and colonise it with the only cost being your time, or if you're want to be a villain, you can threaten to simply ANY object from a given distance onto ...more

This power is very powerful and is way better than teleportation. You can open holes in the universe and go anywhere you want almost instantly. You could also possibly make the portals open as wide as you want and teleport as many people you want with you. If you are in a fight you could teleport the villian away to a valcano or the center of the earth or something. Think about it. You could travel to any destination you want, even to other dimensions and universes!

Yes this is my favorite superpower! :3
