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

Huh. No more worrying about exams then

2 Super Speed

Super speed is arguably one of the most OP superpowers ever. You could run around the world in less than a second, cause sonic booms with ease, punch your opponent with a fist containing more mass than our entire solar system. Everything in your body is faster: your brain, your immune system, etc. You can vibrate your molecules to phase through a bullet just as it touches you. You would also perceive everything around you as if time were frozen. Super speed is nearly impossible to beat unless you have omnipotence.

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

If you were going too fast the air in front of you would compress and heat up and you would catch fire. Another thing is inertia, once you start running you look behind you for a second and wonder what that gooey substance behind you is, oh that's your innards which were liquified and squished out your pores. And as son as you stop your brain would slam through the front of your skull.

You need a more durable body to withstand such fast speeds and prevent such an occurrence - AthenOwl

The only problem with this power is that it is way too powerful. It allows the user to possess many different abilities within itself, such as time travel, phasing, enhanced agility (jumping far, running up walls and on water, etc.), enhanced strength (at a high velocity the point of impact will most likely shatter as it is impacted by a great force), and a greater intellect (due to the fact that the user can literally use their brain and senses at amazing speeds; they could read and grasp advanced concepts way faster than any other human). Super speed is definitely the best power, at least in my opinion.

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

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?

Come on this is obviously the best you guys are smarter then that

4 Invisibility

you can look at some one and they wont know

This was ruined by science, only you would be invisible, not your clothes or whatever you've eaten recently. And you actually wouldn't be able to see because how we see is light enters our eyes and hits our retina, but when you're invisible light just passes on through you and doesn't hit your retina so you would be blind.

You would also see clusters and colonies of microorganisms that live inside of you and throw up if you did not understand their function. - AthenOwl

I'm right behind you, invisible, you just can't see me, understand how awesome invisibility is?

That would be awesome - AliciaMae

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

It beats everything, but I would become very bored as soon as I become omnipotent. Because what is one second to normal people could be infinite time and experiences for me, I would know everything, have done everything, could have been every atom in existence etc, in essence I would not be human anymore. And honestly I don't know what to think of it, of course I would have the option to not use this power to its full potential, but as I said earlier I could live for billions of years doing everything I could to remain human, but eventually I would have to become something more, and all of this could happen in a split second, the very moment I get this power. Unless there were other beings with this power, then it would be more interesting I suppose, but is it even possible? Our wills would crash and technically we wouldn't be omnipotent anymore, it would be something like nigh omnipotence which is more interesting.

Personally if I were to have omnipotence, I wouldn't know what to do with it. You could create new dimensions, bring people back from the dead, know the future. The options are limitless. For those who think time control is number 1, people with omnipotence would already know what you were going to do. They would only allow you to do it because they wanted to humiliate or confuse you. People with omnipotence wouldn't have a reality, time, or certain power because they control it all. They are basically like Lucy at 100% brain control, except they can create whatever they want without anything. Where as she could only manipulate matter you create more from nothing.

Really. Reaally. Omnipotence is basically all powerful. The definition of omnipotence is all power. In that case, you can basically abuse this power to its full extent (possibly) like: Steal every power for yourself, save the earth in a billion years ( because the sun will evaporate all water on Earth then we will all die), Time control.

If unlimited power was in a way of saying a specific kind of power like dexterity or intellect or raw body strength then maybe it should have been placed at 2nd but if I'm correct, then some people need to get some common sense.

6 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.

Shapeshifting could let you do anything. Be the strongest, fastest, smartest. Be fully invulnerable, or heal on wound, and by logic, this would include invisibility because you would turn into an invisible being. You could bypass fingerprint, iris, and face sensors. (Break into someone's phone? Or you could turn into the owner of the phone, and know the password already.) You would essentially be invincible. Who could possibly stop you? Superman? Flash? You could have infinite strength, with a single tap pulverizing diamond. You could have infinite speed, running faster than the movement of light. Or you could turn into light itself. You could be oxygen, flying in through the slightest crack around a door. Nothing could stop you. Got a cut, just heal yourself. Turn into a mere grain of sand, and spy on anyone. Turn into a fire, destroying anything in your way. Grow a mini-cannon on your finger, and shoot a nuclear bomb on anything. Just to name a few.

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!

You can literally turn into anything you want even an animal, I would love that superpower

7 Healing 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.

Why would anyone want to stop time anyways? The molecules around you stop moving completely so unless you have the power to break absolute inertia of all molecules around you, you'll just suffocate because the molecules in your lungs can't go in or out, but hey, it's senseless to apply science to superheroes, right? I'm just going with this because it makes you practically immortal, and could be very useful for, say, bodybuilding because you don't have to weight (that was a pun, not poor grammar) a day in between for your muscles to recover--you could just go nonstop.

This is the only power listed here that is worth a damn for practical purposes. Time control is stupid once you consider inertial frames and whatnot. Flying you can do already in a hang glider or a jet pack, you're just too broke or too chicken to try it. Invisibility is great for thieves and perverts but otherwise useless and pretty dangerous in traffic. Super speed is useless without super strength and super invulnerability to friction and super navigational intelligence and super lack of empathy for all the bystanders you would kill as you ran by. Matter/gravity/magnetism control and omnipotence are... power corrupts. Teleportation is silly. Buy an airline ticket cheapskate. By medieval standards its practically the same thing. Super intelligence would get lonely after a while. Super strength would be great for construction work but not much else.

Shapeshifting is tempting because it gets you super healing and wings and whatnot, but it sucks because you have to control it. ...more

It's good and all but it depends on how fast you heal that would be my only problem with it also would it heal you if you moved or ran

8 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

This power is kinda OP. You can manipulate objects or your body to make them harmless, thus allowing you to become invincible. And also, you can change the space around your opponents into lava, and burning them in the process. You can even make yourself invisible. You can alter the chemical makeup of anything. If you were being attacked by a force such as telekinesis, morph your body into water and it won't be harmed. If someone tried to poison you, you can change make up of your body to be immune. The possibilities are endless.

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.

Controlling matter makes it so anything is under your control

9 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

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!

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.

I can have the force STARWARS

10 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

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

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.

The Contenders

11 Teleportation

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?

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!

With this power, I would not have to take time out of my day to travel! - saturatedsunrise

12 Ability to Absorb Other Powers

Hey I have a question, if someone that can absorb other powers met a time control person, what would happen? I mean can the time control person stop the time before that person absorb his power? Or can the time control person goes back in time before he met the power absorb person? Or can the power absorb person already start using time control power?

If you were to gain the ability to absorb other abilities it is obvious those abilities will have drastic side affects. It could cause a massive amount of strain in your body resulting in multiple side affect which will eventually leave you physically or even psychologically damaged beyond repair. (Not taking into consideration healing factor.) But even with the healing factor, it would only heal your physical body but not your mental state leaving you insane or with mental damages.

You can't lose. Just get a bunch of Super Powered friends and you could have all their powers. "Oh, you control time, just absorb that. Thanks" "Oh you changed shape, I can too" It's just overly powerful. - DinoKea

It could actually get you omnipotence if you can find barely visible openings. - Qryzx

13 Ability to Fly

I think flying would be really bad because what if you are somewhere cold and you want to fly away all the cold wind get in your face and also you could swallow a bug when you mouth is open. Super speed would be better because you can just go the in one second. But it depends on how fast you can go with both super speed and flying.

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

Going so high up would make you freeze to death, also the height would result in lack of oxygen and to add to that going down fast could seriously screw up your body. Sorry but this has so many limits that if you had this ability and used it it would essentially be suicide. - Bubbyboop

Imagine this-
you ditch math class and you are far off the ground. your feet try to reach the ground but they can't. you touch a cloud, the wisps tussling your hair. the sky turns a scarlet red as you touch the blood red sky and soar into twilight.
THIS IS FAKE STOP TRYING TO LECTURE ME ABOUT "oooh it has to be scientific oxygen BLEBLEBLE." GR. anyways hope you enjoyed the story. flying is an amazing power, and if I could choose any power, it would be flying. SHUT UP YOU SEA OF HATERS I'm TOO YOUNG TO BE QUALIFIED AS A SCIENTIST OKAY!?!?!?!

14 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

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.

With super intelligence you can create weapons and tech that can replicate or dominate all other powers.

15 Super Strength

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

I COULD CRAP WITH THE FORCE OF A VOLCANO
THIS WOULD ALSO BE COOL FOR LIFTING HEAVY OBJECTS LIKE TURDS AFTERWARDS

Crapping volcano style, pretty cool

Why is this not at number one. This is the most common by far. Here let's make of list of people with super strength: Superman, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Drax, Deadpool, Ant Man, Vision, The Thing, Beast, Groot, Gamora, and more. How could this ever be in 14th place. It's the best thing ever!

16 Invincibility

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!

Call this "the best superpower" when you're still alive, floating in empty space after you've seen everyone and everything you've once known be destroyed.

You are misinterpreting the word invincibility you could literally win at everything you are an existence that can never be surmounted. It is simply better than you give it credit for it is like omnipotence without responsibility as you can never be weaker than something. Invincibility all the way

17 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.

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.

You know what people mean. You're just trying to make everything more complicated than it has to be - Westeeny

Telepathy, or mind control in my opinion is one of the best super powers. You can make people do what ever you want. The mind is a beautiful creation and to be able to control something of so much power already is amazing. You can make someone think that they're dying and the mind with believe it and if the mind believes it so does the body. You can read minds. You'll never be wrong and you can literally do what ever you want.

I am 7 I am getting ready to do a speech and you really helped me.

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

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.

It would be awesome. I have always wanted to see how humans will evolve and everything they come up with. In time you would be rich, you could end up achieving
Super strength, speed, stamina, and/or intelligence. But it would most likely only be a good power if you could make others immortal and be able to shut down/turn off your immortality and then turn it back on.

I want it as long as I don't get older just think about everything you can do.

19 Flight

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.

Just don't get banned for fly hacking.

20 Thoughts Become Reality

With this power, you can think about anything (or anyone) you want and it would become REAL! For example, you can even think about using a superpower and it would be real and you can really use it so is more amazing than anything, and even you think about it, all humans have made everything with their imagination, so why not use that to an extent...

I think this would be cool if your power was to grant wishes. If you granted people's wishes you could be either the most well-loved hero or a villain who could manipulate/guilt-trip their minions ("I'll heal your dying child if you join my forces" kind of deal.)

With this, you could literally do anything you want, invisibility, time control, quantum tunneling, even omnipotence or omniscience. This is clearly the be best and most OP superpower. But it is kind of exactly the same thing of omnipotence, so I can see why it's down here.

Perfect powers for horny teenagers lmao - missyweirdo

21 Bulletproof

What if you get crushed, stabbed, strangled, electrocuted, drowned, burned, decapitated, hung, stoned, blown up, or killed in any other way other than by bullet... - Bubbyboop

This is so lame. Why isn't intangibility on his list but bulletproof is. Most retarded power ever.

The comment below me has a point, but nowadays most people use guns

I would rather bulletproop because guns sniper hell nah

22 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!

It sounds kinda creepy to me, it's scary but that's probably because I'm one of the major cowards of the world

23 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.

Being able to stretch to infinite lengths is better, unfortunately I don't know what that is called... - Bubbyboop

24 Mind Control

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?

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.

What I'm talking about isn't JUST telekinesis, it is also being able to create a shield from telekinetic energy, teleporting to places you've seen before, solving any problem almost instantly, being able to look through memories of other people ( or just picking around in their mind ), just anything that has something to do with your mind except more advanced and powerful.

You can use every power on this list with hypnosis. You can create world peace. You can run for President and win! You could catch thieves. Yeah...this should be Number One.

25 Create Forcefields

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

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

27 Reality 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 can create anything you want! You can control everything! You have the power like God. Probably the only downside to this power is that you can't control their minds and ask them what to do.

Reality warping is the best because if anything happens to you you could just fix it without a thought

28 Cloning

Man, cloning would be awesome, just hold a hundred dollar bill, clone and then you'd have $200

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!

The clones must obey you. That's the only thing to worry about. - Animefan12

If you have a mental link with them and they have to do what you want them do when you want them to then you could always know where they are and make them come back when you want - Westeeny

29 Harness Dark Matter

Awesome! You could be all Necromancer and stab people with shadows and use darkness to escape or cover enemies eyes so you can pound em and they wont even see! Or teleport using shadows or become like a god of death! Number 1 definiteley

Dark Matter doesn't bring people back to life. It's matter that doesn't react to electromagnetic radiation.

Totally awesome! You could make a ball of darkness and use like shadow ball from Pokemon.

Honestly... This would be pretty cool - Bubbyboop

30 Invulnerability

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

31 Magnetism

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!

Doesn't that mean that you're just magnetic therefore you'd just get killed by a ton of nails flying into you - Bubbyboop

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

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

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

But wouldn't you be not able to see

33 Emotion Control

That is so sad

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.

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

36 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.

We can all already do this dumass - Bubbyboop

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

37 Absorb Energy

With this you could absorb someone's energy like if they are running you could make them stop also you could absorb all types of energy like if a building is on fire you could absorb all of the fire everything that is energy you basically control

You can be as powerful as psychokinesis by absorbing the kinetic energy of anyone or anything. You can freeze any object by taking it's heat energy.

Ability is top 10 if you can release energy the energy. Would be op as hell to absorb/release energy in any shape or form.

Basically, you could absorb the energy of anything. Because everything relies on energy to do what it does, the possibilities are almost limitless.

38 Walk Through Walls

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

Worst power ever. Are you immune to gravity? Heat? No. Say hello to the molten core of the earth.

But u can ONLY walk through walls, u can't walk through anything else, that seems kinda lame dontcha think? - Bubbyboop

40 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.

41 Control Ice and Water

So awesome...! I always wanted to explore the ocean secrets such as Bermuda triangle!.So at least when I meet a monster I could control ice n water to wipe them up :p lol

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

Please I really like this power a lot

42 Create Portals

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

Examples:

#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!

43 Super Hearing

It's okay, not as powerful as the others. But with this you would definitely be hired as a spy. You could hear things from miles and miles away. You could stalk your neighbors and if someone was in trouble, you could come and help them. You wouldn't even need a fire alarm at the fire station if you work there if someone screams. The only thing is that a whisper would sound like a moderate voice but if someone screamed, " AH! ", you would definitely go deaf so it has some pros and cons... but I'm leaning towards the cons... But you can be way better at listening to your friend's conversations to see if they are gossiping about the new girl or a iPhone 7 plus or whatever! Or listen to your parents talk about your 64% or your math test because believe me, they talk about it. The possibilities to hearing things are nearly endless! You could hear your pet mouse squeaking next to you on your bed... ( way, way off... ) Hear anything before it happens!

44 Steel Skin

Steel, like all metals, reacts with acids. Drinking a glass of orange juice might not cause any major damage, but consider all of the acidic foods you consume each day.

The ability to transform all atoms and particles within your body into a thick layer of steel, which may be bullet proof, fire resistant and almost invulnerable.

When I first read it I thought it said steal skin as in the power to steal skin from people and animals which would be great for a taxidermist and a supervillain even superman would lose to you since he couldn't survive with out his skin.

I think this is one of the worst powers

45 Curse Casting

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.

48 Turbo Jump

That's plain dumb

what

When you use science to think about superpowers, you find that 80% of them will suck. Let's tackle a few:
Time control, say you stop time. Guess what? Air is stopped, which means you can't breathe, or play games, since electricity can't move, or see since light can't move.
Superspeed, your face might peel off. Besides, superspeed does not come with super reaction time, you see the world whizzing past you one second and the next you got a lamppost halfway across the world, except it will kill you cause the momentum you gain while running will make the lamppost cut you in half
Invisibility, I'll set aside the obvious down sides, like not being able to see and stuff. But you realise dust sticks to us all the time, you would be a human-shaped price of dust walking around saying hi to your neighbors.

49 Death Finger

Powerful, but what if you love someone or are good friends with that person.

Sucks if you want to hug your mom

"This power sucks in general! This is one of the worst superpowers I've ever heard of!
