    Easy, Superhuman Intelligence, although it is not mentioned. It would crush everyone :biggrin:

    Is getting to choose your superpowers a superpower?

    You are superhumanly human!

    Personally, i'd love teleportation. At least I could wake up from bed at the last possible instant and still get to college on time.

    I'd have "generic superpower" that can do anything. :D

    I think shape shifting is the coolest. Especially if there are little to no limitations. You could look like other people.. .or animals... really small things that fit in people's pockets. All sorts of coolnesses.

    The ability to generate any amount of money in any denomination in any currency at any time.

    I'd like to be able to see through womens clothes. Sometimes. :biggrin: o:)

    Actually, I'm kidding. Hell, I wouldn't like to have this super power. Things wouldn't be fun.

    Not really sure. Get to speak at some conventions I guess.

    Or commit suicide.

    Or find elaborate ways to manipulate the masses and construct a massive army of loyal people to storm all nations and take over the world. No one could overturn me, because I would be very intelligent, performing calculations all the time, estimating probability and being able to evade attackers. The ground will be drowned in human worship and animal sacrifice. Then as Almighty Leader of the world, I could like, go speak at some conventions, or, alternately write a lot of self-help books for new promising galactic overlords.

    Imagine how fast one could drive down the US economy, hitting rock bottom in a matter of days.

    It would definitely be one of two (unless I am only limited to one)

    Complete body invisibility at will, and the power of supernatural manipulation of other people.
