Which power would you take?

a) teleport anywhere in world within a second (limited to 4 teleports a day)
b) possess other person's body and control them (your body slumps into coma when this happens)
c) manipulate all objects through telekinesis (within 100m radius)
d) x-ray vision for playing cards

            OP never said you could do that and even if you could it doesn't mean that you have the ability to do it well. You wouldn't become Dr Manhattan, so you wouldn't have the intelligence or knowledge required to create anything, sure you could destroy but it's within 100m, you might end up creating some unforeseen reaction and killing yourself via an explosion, wave of radiation, etc.

            Pretty sure OP just meant basic telekinesis. This would be useful for winning some casino games, and defending yourself against criminals, maybe even deflect some bullets, but in no way is being able to manipulate things at the atomic level a useful ability unless you first have the superhuman mental processing speed and intelligence required to use such an ability without killing yourself.

            It's like super speed, everybody says it's a good ability but it isn't. If you move faster than light you won't be able to see, etc.

            Nah, it just sounds like you are a wage slave with stockholm syndrome for your slave masters. What you are saying literally makes no sense, if you can teleport anywhere you can just wear a mask and full body suit so that you leave no dna, and just teleport in and out with whatever you want. Only people who create paper trails and timelines need alibi's, not only would you never be on anyone's radar, but they couldn't prove you did it anyways.

            Imagine taking the world's coolest superpower and still using it to commute to your boring ass, lame, shitty 9-to-5 job.

            >Imagine taking the world's coolest superpower and still using it to commute to your boring ass, lame, shitty 9-to-5 job.
            This is what happens when your mind is now enslaved, you are the perfect slave still thinking about work when the chains have been taken off.

            A) a lot of people have taken but have failed to ask for specifics. It says it teleports *you* anywhere, but do your clothes and items you're carrying count as "you", because if they don't, this could easily become the worst superpower on this list.

            Imagine you decide to teleport anywhere, so you teleport to China. Only to find you teleport there completely naked at a random spot.

            It also doesn't specify how you define "anywhere in the world". Lets say you've never been to a country - does the name suffice? How does it do name resolution in the case of ambiguous name locations? Does it require a visual, and if so, how good does the visual have to be?

            Remember, you're not invincible. So you could teleport in front of a bus in a busy high street. Or teleport 5,000 feet in the air. Naked. China finds the dead body of a naked western man that fell from the sky in-front of a bus full of school children and went "splat" on the ground.

            I'd also like to know what the logistics are about teleporting into moving targets. Do you adopt their momentum frame of reference? Or do you start with whatever motion you had upon teleportation?

            So if you teleported from stationary into a plane, you'd find yourself splatted against the back interior at +200MPH.

            Inversely, if you teleported from a +200MPH plane to ground, you'd still have the +200MPH forward momentum and go splat into whichever wall. Also naked.

            This superpower would kill a lot of amateurs not familiar with how imparted motion works. You couldn't use it on a train, in a bus, in a car, in a plane.

            If it adopts the frame of reference and imparts local motion, then your body will experience inertia going from 200MPH to 0MPH... which will still have the same impact internally plus G forces.

            Shitty superpower if used incorrectly.

            Honestly I was going to pick the teleport (A) until I read your post.

There's no way to trace it back to me, so I would keep doing this until everyone with more than one billion dollars is dead. If possible, I'd make them kill other rich and powerful people to make the elites disorganized and fearful of each other. I'd do the same to all dictators.
      For lesser villains like politicians who had one big frick-up but were otherwise fine, I'd just force them to resign. I would use this power to reshape the world into a place with more liberty. I would give control back to the people and take it away from those who seek to control us.

    D) looks like a suspiciously lame superpower, but does the user get to define what counts as a "playing card"?

    This would actually be an extremely useful power because you could *control* the X-ray to only make specific things transparent or non-transparent by classifying them (or not) as playing cards.

    You could then do things like diagnose injuries, check objects for hidden stashes of bombs, money, search the earth for hidden treasure and even X-ray "un-X-rayable" materials, such as lead or concrete, which actually gives you a more powerful X-ray.

    This would actually make you overpowered from a military surveillance standpoint. You could classify an entire bunker as a "playing card" and then literally see straight inside. You could also search for oil deposits, find ores, locate magma pockets etc by reclassifying Earth's crust as a "playing card".

    You could get insanely rich searching for water sources, oil deposits, gold and more, by simply classifying everything that is "not the material" as a "playing card".

    Basically minecraft X-ray but for real life.

      On top of this, even if you're aware of the downsides, if you ever become intoxicated, you run the risk of drunkenly teleporting yourself to instant death. For example, a hot water vent, volcano, Antarctica, the insides of the woman you just fancied, etc.

      Assuming teleportation comes with 'all the pre-requite' superpowers (I.E. immunity to whatever damage it can cause and no accidental teleports and no nakedness or loss of items/equipment), it is basically a criminal's superpower.

      You can't use it to rescue anyone. You can only teleport yourself.

      It's optimal for selfish people, such as those escaping from jail, trying to smuggle goods across borders, plant bombs, steal shit, sabotage equipment, kill people by teleporting out at inconvenient times (E.G. flying a plane and then just bailing), going on vacation whilst breaking all the visa rules.

      At best all you could do is use it to facilitate highly important item transfers or items with an extremely urgent deadline, such as an organ transplant. Even if you optimised the route, you could only save one life each way for a maximum of 7 lives.

      Meanwhile, if you attempt to defuse a bomb, you have to use teleportation three times: once to get to the bomb, once to teleport it out along with yourself, and once again to teleport yourself to safety.

      Shitty power overall. Super-villain arc.

    C) Is a gimpy superpower. It says "manipulate" but doesn't define what manipulate can or can't do. This could easily become an extremely deadly and broken superpower.

    Lets say I can manipulate an object's motion. I literally could accelerate a speck of dust to the speed of light and immediately have myself a nuclear bomb that would vapourise everything in the blast radius. At 100m influence, I might be dead.

    I could however launch a stone at 99.99% the speed of light so it exits my 100m limit (without vapourising me via heat resistive forces). It might unfortunately explode due to fracturing and acceleration but those are the risks you need to take for a mass driver weapon.

    You could use it to fly by having an item under you, but if you get distracted mid-flight you're fricked. Assuming it is "always on", the moment you start flying, EVERYBODY IS GOING TO NOTICE, and you will gain a LOT of unwanted attention. Attention you literally cannot escape (your body cannot withstand Mach 2 forces, so literally any fighter jet can keep pace with your sub-sonic speed ass).

    The other problem is some L-esque detective will know that you're responsible by checking for whoever was within a 100m radius of an event occurring. 100m is a really shit, short distance (that's 0.06 of a mile).

    So if your goal was to kill the President, you'd have to get within very close viewing distance. Secret Service could cap you out easily. All you could do is launch 99.99% light speed stones from afar, but then on CCTV that would be really obvious (the streaks of light would be a dead giveaway).

    This power is actually better used if you're a surgeon or someone who needs to make very fine adjustments to a thing without damaging anything. But even that's pretty lame.

    High risk of killing yourself with a 99.99% lightspeed projectile for little gain.

        If you nuked a standing president with a flying rock, I guarantee every agency would be after you. The telekinesis is not invincibility.

        They only have to detonate a bomb outside of your influence radius to kill you. 100m is very small. Shit, poison gas would work because 100m worth of air isn't a lot and you'd suffocate even if you could keep the gas out.

        If it only influences objects and can't influence energy, radiation would be sufficient.

        I mean, how many other people can launch stones at high velocity? You're not going to be hard to track down.

    B) Is abnormal but arguably the single strongest superpower, assuming you can exit the person you can control (by E.G. controlling yourself).

    In-fact, you could allow someone to perform surgery on you in an emergency. You could actually perform surgery on yourself - you can't feel pain because you're not in the body and you're comatose.

    It also allows you to perform really miraculous deeds. For example, you could hijack the President, pardon Julian Assange, then go hijack Xi Jinping, make him spill all of his secrets publicly, then get anyone who abuses you, to later destroy their own shit in a fit of crazy whilst screaming 'I'M A MOOOOOOONNN' running half naked.

    The downside is you will be aging during this entire time. But you could use it to legitimately eliminate opponents and legally get cash. You could literally learn state secrets without anyone ever figuring out how.

    You could even make the C-SPAN hearings far more interesting. Have the guilty bastards confess on public record they committed the crime and they would do it again if they had the chance.
