    Default What DC hero or villain has your favorite super power or ability?

    Not talking about your favorite hero or villain but who has your favorite or most interesting super power or ability?

    Dick. I should've paid more attention to gymnastics.

    Not that I was amazing or anything but I enjoy it out of all sports besides swimming, and I have the body type for it. I don't really pay attention to sports in general so I didn't know that gymnasts are usually short. No wonder I was better at it than my friends who prefer soccer. Could've used the boost of confidence too, but gymnastic isn't in any of the extracurricular. Probably because I went to an all-boys school and it's considered girl stuff, I don't know.

    So I just quit sports, and nowadays I'm too stiff from computer works.

    Flash's superspeed, but not so much for the sheer power of it but more for the subtle tricks and psychological aspects.

    He also happens to be my favorite hero, I came for the power & look but stayed for the men underneath.

    Superman - flight. Who doesn't wish they can fly?

    Probably the Atom. I loved the whole weigh-nothing-weigh-it-all nature of his powers and what he could do with it.

    Chameleon Boy Shapeshifting sounds awesome, particularly as it opens up so many cool possibilities to explore the depths of the ocean, or fly the friendly skies, or whatever. (Martian Manhunter just adds a thousand other powers and would be vastly superior, but I thought I'd stick to someone with *one* power.)

    Vixen Similar to Chameleon Boy, can fly high, swim deep, run fast, whatever. Plus the tons of interesting sensory powers, opens up new worlds of information.

    Definitely Flash,

    Animal Man would be up their as well I think he’s a step up on Vixen and Beast Boy

    I liked the Waterhand and Poseidon Blessing incarnations of Aquaman powerset wise and definitely would love any power ring I could get a hold of

    Definitely a cool aspect.

    Hmmm a few people already went Flash or Green Lantern, so I'm gonna say Firestorm. Personally I just really like the concept of being able to manipulate something and transform it on a molecular level. One minute the villains holding a gun the next its turned to bubbles, that is a fun power.

    I like the different powers e.g. Kole with her crystal powers and Terra with her earth powers.

    It's different from the generic enhanced strength, hyper-speed, flying hero. Yeah, I know there useful powers...that's why so many heroes have them.

    I LOVE animal abilities so Beast Boy, Vixen, and Animal Man. Extremely versatile so you're good in almost any situation.

    I really love the subtle nature of Duke Thomas' photokinetic powers, they are largely supplemental abilities that you have to be smart about using as opposed to the plug and play nature of a super strength or speed or flight.

    on the more traditional flashy side, I would love to have Black Lightning's style of lightning abilities. i was just thinking about the versatility of his lightning, he can amp his physical abilities, control external electricity, and manipulate the properties of his lightning? that's dope as hell! like who doesn't want to be able to produce a rainbow cornucopia of different lightning!

    I'm gonna say technopathy, like Hank Henshaw and Cyborg.

    You sit back and think about that for a second, and what you could do with that. Hunting down criminals with spy satellites and drones, blowing up terrorist cells, even leaking information that reveals the corrupt....it isn't touching the barest part of what you could do. Control elections? Hold nations hostage? Control nukes? You could destroy the global economy and build a new one within a day. You control information you control everything.

    It'd be cool to fly, but....I'll just surf a military drone.
