ooh. i get it. Make the guy with the "all powers" super power do things for you, or he suffers great debilitating pain. That's on that borderline between ingenious and insanity. I love that line. I've been living on that line for years.
However, if he can do anything, then he can simply negate your power. So there is a flaw in your cunning plan... :)
But Scott could keep Rick in enough pain so as to distract Rick whilst he tries to negate Scott's powers.
Oh, Scott. Don't you know that the proper way to spell a maniacal laugh is with an M? "Mwa ha ha ha!" "Bwa ha ha ha" just doesn't cut it.
Here's an example of how NOT to decide which super power you want:http://www.cracked.com/video_17328_why-having-wolverines-claws-would-suck.html
BWAHAHAHAHAHA*cough choke wheeze*
I just hope I'm not the only one immediately reminded of Fable 2 upon reading panel 4 (where failing the Laughter expression leads to a similarly amusing choke session).
1.)Dr.Manhattan had the best superpower of all and had transcended all human concerns - yet Ozymandias foiled him - thus rendering all superhero tales that followed redundant and kinda' trite.
2.)The problem of having a superpower is eventually realizing you are a fictional character being controlled and manipulated against your will by one or more unattractive nerds and geeks. Makes one rethink the argument regarding the existence of God, eh?
3.)Aren't geeks comparing one superpower over another just inadvertently playing an escalated version of rock, paper, scissors? Thus they eventually fall prey to marketing scams like Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crises, Civil War, etcetera, suffering under the pretense as passing as literature, limited editions, deaths of characters, and on and on and on and that's why I gave up reading superhero comics.
i read the title in a different way... my super power would be China! No wait, the old british empire!
Well, if you're talking ancient realms, I'll take The Golden Horde.Modern entities, USA all the way.
Nah, mind control/mind reading all the way.
Uhmm ... debilitating power ... like being a successful politician :P
I'd choose the power to control the weather. Since my job is heavily impacted by weather, I could ensure that thunderstorms affecting my work only occur on my days off. Actually, I could just hire myself out to farmers and other people who need rain and make a mint. Plus if anyone got on my nerves I could send a tornado after them. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
I thought you would want to be able to fly without wearing the rocket helmet attached by a busted chinstrap? Then you could finally end the war with the Moonmen! By the way, how is that war going?
D#MN you!!! I should not have watched this at work!!!! I gotta go to my car before I explode from laughing ....
Oh.... you need a disclaimer on this link... do NOT watch if you are faint of heart.
the power to move you...
I *knew* you were gonna say that.
The power of voodoo!
Empathy - Feelings, points of view, all that... it would make my life a lot easier heheThat, or Cryokenesis... or Electrokenesis
Mind Bullets (That's telekinesis, Kyle)
The power to acquire other people's powers buy psychically cutting off the top of their heads, around the forehead area, and leaving a kind of wet red line in the process.....
I'd take the power to absorb languages by making out with people.
It would be awesome, traveling the globe and gaining incredibly valuable skills by smooching beautiful women.
I told my girlfriend about my idea, and she said she'd find me some cute boys.
Crazy yaoi fangirls...
The power to score with other superheroes' wives.
telekinesis all the way.
I would want the power to manipulate time, (stop it, rewind it, slow it down, ect.) I could races, the lottery, stop crimes and mess with people.
