    Would you use them for good and to be helpful or abuse the crap about of them?
    Be a silent mystery or a public figure?
    Become a weapon? Or a peacekeeper?
    Watch the world burn, or put out every fire?

    How would you respond to being the special one?
    How would you respond when someone else has powers too?

    I forgot
    I would use them for total evil. Secretly. And then I would fuck all the bitches.

    If I had more superpowers... entirely depends what sort I have.

    It is fairly safe to say though that as nobody has ever confused me for being selfless that I would not like to provide a precedent otherwise. Straight evil is a bit like burning ants with a magnifying glass. Random evil and contributing to the entropy of the universe appeals though.

    Respond to others. Are they are threat to me and what I do?

    As far as ive seen from social experiments, if you give anyone the slightest bit of power, 9/10 times theyre not gonna use it for good.

    Whether I use it for good or evil depends on which gives me more benefits.

    The ability to teleport to any spot I want. I'm impatient and that would help.

    On the one hand, I've always wanted to be a superhero... on the other hand, I'm afraid my love for puns would doom me to a life of supervillainy.

    Surely you could bottle them up for finishing moves or finding a crime scene.

    There is also the anti hero option.

    Nah, nah, anti-heroes go for sarcasm and bitter irony, heroes deliver snappy one-liners. Gahars' puns are pure supervillain material.

    You could use them as like a status effect that paralyzes wrongdoers with uh... how brilliant they are.

    I appreciate the sentiment, but it's too late for me. I'm fated to be the Groan Goblin.

    Only superpower I want is the ability to make people comically fall over.

    Would you settle for a sound device that makes such classics as





    and a reminder when it is set to snow/get ice covered/wet leaf covered in your area?
