    Now that my original thread for this has disappeared onto page 2, I think it's appropriate to create a better one. I took ALL the non ridiculous power choices ever from the previous poll and put them here, even alchemy. Then I took out the other option so everything is categorized effectively. The only one I left out was space time manipulation, 'cause that's just cheap and no fun. Then I added the second question right at the beginning so it will match up with the first question.

    As I said before in the other thread, Transformation is epic. Now I'm tired of typing. Vote.

    Edit: Post your reasons and opinion after you vote, if you please.

    Double Edit: If you remember or think of a power you don't see here, tell me and I might add it.

    I'm spoilt for choice [​IMG] [​IMG] Shapeshifing would be fantastic (in the style of Odo/Changelings in DS9, without the 16 hour limit, and being able to do a much better job of looking like people, not just an approximation), but so would the "tele-" powers and the flight. In the end I went with transforming [​IMG]

    I would turn myself into a magical Furry so I wouldn't have to lug around my embarrassing fursuit costume (people always give me weird looks in airports/bus stops etc) when I travel between conventions. Either that or be Naurto.

    I figured a furry would come in here and vote for that. Though truthfully I would be partial to that myself.

    Time Control, as I already stated in the previous thread.

    And what's up with the paradox the size of Belgium (I remember it from something/where but I don't know for sure)?

    There should have been a option for becoming a Hero plus For yourself.

    We'll just assume that if you're a hero, you can have fun with the power for your own means as well.

    But wouldn't transformation be awesome? You could be whatever you wanted to be. Soar as a falcon Prowl as a wolf. Listen in as a mouse. Fight as a bear. Impersonate anyone. With a good imagination, you could do anything. And aside from practical purposes, (Of which there are many,) How much fun would it be to be a cat? A rabbit? A tiger? And, of course, with being an animal, comes the ability to communicate with them on a basic level. Which is cool.

    And wow. I'm surprised anyone got that obscure reference to my VERY FAVORITE Tellie show ever.

    I'd either want mind control, elemental control, or super agility. I'd use them for myself.

    Are you serious?
    I'm the only person that has chosen "hero" thus far?

    Oh the irony.....

    Well tell us what you voted for...

    There were more heroes in the last poll. I should have voted hero myself. I would help people, but work for myself as well.

    I'd like the power to make other people poo and wee themselves just by looking at them. I've been practising on homeless people and the results are not entirely unsuccessful.

    Weirdo. But that would be Jedi Mind tricks. Weirdo.

    Oe other thing. this isn't a debate. All of these hold equal merit. No debating.

    Transformation. That'd be so cool, impersonating other people could lead to all sorts of hilarity. But transforming into animals gives it a whole new level of awesome.

    I'd definately end up using the powers for my own ends, I don't think I have the determination to be really good, and I don't have it in me to be super evil. Petty theft and impersonating famous people though-bring it on.

    Couldn't have put it better myself. Though I'd do some good deeds and keep petty crime to a minimum.
