making myself so i can pass through things, and things can pass through me, voluntarily. this is the ultimate super power, your invulnerable to everything excluding aging.

Yeah, you win. That's the one I'd wat too. Want to fly? Just build yourself a pair of wings. Or grow them through genetic manipulation. Plus think of all the  from R&D corps. drool, drool

hey that's cheating!

It's also boring. I would settle for the ability to change form a la mystique. That way I could be people I dislike and do really stupid things, make them look bad. Y'know be Bush and pee on stuff in public. If I played it right I could control the world! Muhahahahahahahahahahhahaahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha!

Immortality most definitely. This would give me an unlimited amount of time to find ways to acquire any other super power. Obviously the wisest choice.

It's analogous to me having three wishes and wishing for an infinite amount of wishes!!!

Even so, what if you inadvertently solidified whilst going through a wall or other barrier. You'd cause a nuclear reaction.
That would suck more than you can imagine.

I think I'll stick with telepathy, or maybe telekinesis.

What if you hit your head and lose control of your powers and keep falling into the Earth and eventually out of the Earth. Does heat effect you......or only objects with mass?

The greatest power of all in my opinion would be complete dominion of the fourth dimension-the ability to control time.

You could freeze time for others while walking around and doing stuff, go backward or forward in time, reverse aging in your body, and freeze things in mid air like suspending a waterfall.
That has got to be the ultimate power. Who the hell needs x-ray vision or flying? I can stop time and travel to India in the wink of an eye. Or I could always erase embarrassing situations by reversing time and trying them again (Ground Hog day leaps to mind, only with the ability to go forward)

I would like to have the ability to heal the sick and injured, both people and animals.

That is a horrible super power traveler. It would force you to either keep your power a secret from everybody, which means you would only be able to use it on a few people, or you would have to use it a lot and everbody would be asking you to heal them. You would probably get picked up by some government and forced into healing evil dictators (like Cheney's heart problems) and nobody else.

Zero Mass....

By healing people I could also be helping those with mental conditions which could lead to a better world for all people. We have to many people who think they are better than , more powerful than and richer than everyone else and those people need allot of help. I wouldn't mind being able to help as many people as I could and wouldn't let any government stop me. Don't forget that I can also heal myself so anything anyone tries to do to stop me I can prevent.

And what if people lock you up in chains? How you gonna heal your way out of that one Einstien?
I'm not saying the power to heal is all that bad, but on its own it has great possibilities for evil people to take advantage of, and I don't think that in a world where millions are dying every day that it would be that important if only one person could wield the power of healing. What good could you do in a day?

With the power of time you could heal people. Just keep looping until you find a cure. Then apply it.

Anyone remember Captain Scarlet? He only had one super power- he was

The Man Who Could Not Die!

He could still be squished and burnt and have his brain sliced up, but he always seemed okay afterwards.

Since I was little I always wanted to be able to fly, in all of my dreams I can fly, and during really boring lectures, I look out the windows and daydream about it.

So...I was tempted to say that I would like to be able to fly, but that almost seems like a waste of a wish.

I think I might decline the offer, otherwise people would be begging me favours constantly, and I absolutely abhor obligations.

If I had to pick...telepathy I suppose. The kind where I can tap into anyones head and converse with them. Then I could warn my friends of things, and I would always know where people were. Not have to worry about a cell phone bill, or be tied up on the computer IMing people.

Wow...that's way too practical....

I would want the power of ultimate learning and knowledge.

Everything you guys have described could be done by learning about it. Forcefields, time travel, everything. I would want to be able to be like John Travolta in "Phenomenon" without me having burn out because im thinking so much and having a few people that would be as smart as me.

Imagine being able instantly remember and learn everything you read, having super control over science and being able to build and then do anything you want.

And then, imagine the agony!

You: And this technique for producing electricity is vastly more efficient and runs directly off of the magnetic field of the earth.
George W Bush: We needs more electricity wires.

You: In this manner I have cured cancer.
Giant Pharmaceutical Company: But... but... cancer's a big money maker for us! We'll have to make a new business plan!

You: Love is the greatest gift given us by an uncaring universe.
Them: They took our country!
Other them: It was ours first!

You: Hey Sciforums...
Us: hey faith u stil a genuis? HAHAHA

I just wanted to take this opportunity to mention that Captain Scarlet is the Indestructible Man! For example:

Common man: Omigod he's been crushed under a falling meteorite! Do you think he's okay?
Faith: Of course he's okay. He's Captain frickin' Scarlet.
Common man: Ooh, you just think you're so smart, don't you?
