neither really, for the mot part things would likely remain the same I wouldnt go out of my way to help or hurt others, i'd probably just try and find a way to make things easier, maybe even use my powers for personal gain and profit or something but for the most part, keep to myself.
>>79724219 being a supervillain would be too embarrassing. What would my parents think? what would my friends think? What's the point of becoming superpowerful and ruling the world if I'm ashamed of facing the few people I care about? I'd probably end up superheroy things that people expect me to, to not disappoint them.
>did you go save people from that fire? >did you go save those drowning people? >well if you're quick on that search and rescue you can go look for survivors out at sea
>>79724435 hero in the real world would work with firefighters, help in storms and hurricanes, avalanches, that sort of thing. you ight be enlisted by the government to kill people for them and fight in foreign countries. Or fight supervillains if they exist
>>79724219 I'm a chaotic good, I perceive what I do as being the "good guy" but sometimes people don't like my tactics. It all depends on your personal view I guess, I think I'd be a pretty good "for the people" type of hero.
>>79724219 First i'd fuck around with my friends, pissing them off. Then i'd use it for personal gain and not tell anyone about it. I mean shit, it's not like i could use it for good if i wanted. Like >>79725100 said, you couldn't help by just going out and look for punks to beat up. Only way to help would to publicly out yourself and then you'd get used by governments as a tool or experimented on.
>>79724219 I'll just be a villian. Not like because I want to like steal shit and make people miserable, although that's the icing to this cake, but because I want good people to show and prove themselves. Like I'm the trainer for these soon to be heroes.
Probably a villain. It depends on my powers, whether or not other supers show up, and whatever mood I happen to be in day to day. If there are other heroes I'd probably become one in part for the glory and partially because I don't want them coming after me for being a villain. If they weren't than I'd do whatever I want. I don't doubt that I would kill someone if I thought I could get away with it. Either way, I'd abuse my powers for my own gain.
>>79724219 Neither I'd use my powers for personal reasons in a way that doesn't infringe on anyone else's rights Unless I had powers that would make it incredibly easy for me to get away with bank robbery, in which case, villain
Depends on the power really. If it was something I could use to covertly commit crimes I'd likely be a villain. If I had some overwhelmingly offensive power I'd probably be a hero because I love fighting. Anything else I wouldn't be either.
Do I even have to explain what kind of good I could dop with this. I could literally take down ISIS and child pornography websites on the deep web and find information on who owns them.
I could absorb knowledge from the internet until I become the most intelligent man on Earth, and I could use my knowledge to help do good as well.
If I wanted to take a more of a Robin Hood anti-hero approach, I could access the bank accounts of greedy billionaires and sent money to thousands of poverty ridden people across the nation, maybe even the world.
I could stop nuclear missiles from firing. I could access security cams and be one of the first people to know when a crime has started.
I could literally be a god if I wanted to and rule over the world., but I would never do that, though maybe that power could eventually get to my head.
>>79725784 http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Writing_Area Id be a villain with a side of heroing Id mostly just write stuff like "ur a faget" and other such meme garbage sometimes Id give people encouraging words to those I love overall I wouldnt be that impressive of a hero or a villain
I literally cannot be a hero. I'd be a super-anti-hero at best, giving high profile celebrities and billionaires spells of specific diseases to prompt more effort into finding treatments or cures. Maybe induce a temporary cancer that never returns after it goes into remission to raise awareness.
Most people would probably apathetic. It takes a lot of effort to research and plan things once you get powers. If you aren't making any effort to track and record crimes in your city now, what are the chances you are going to once you get powers. Most would probably still shitpost on /co/ rather than patrol a city and look for crime. Same with becoming a villain and robbing banks and shit. What difference would super powers be if you still get caught or can't plan a heist properly.
>>79724219 Hero, but I'd probably be less about fighting crime and getting into armed conflicts, and just try to prevent casualties caused by natural disasters and stuff like plane crashes and train derailments
>>79724718 If I were a hero I would probably have to power of flying because if I were a hero I would like to be recognized, and once you take the skies, you're pretty much gonna be spotted. I would use just weapons to fight if necessary, unless I could have a second power which would be something like creating a weapon out of thin air.
If I were a villain I would just go with the basic super intelligence to be able to create any artifact or machine or whatever I need.
>>79724219 If i get superpowers, so would others, and since some superpowers are broken beyond belief like flash or superman, i would very likely stand no chance. So no, i would just use them for my own personal gain, because doing superhero shit is just tiring with no benefits.
Small time criminal or villain until something convinces me to use my powers for a greater cause. I'm not gonna go around using my powers for white knighting and would rather just fuck around but if some big bad started fucking shit up I'd oppose.
>>79724219 Everyone would see me as a villain because I'm stepping on their freedoms >no guns >no motorcycles either >not allowed to smoke unless within a 5ft radius of a tree >brb gon fuck up those muslims
I'd probably just do my best to help people. Like Saving people from natural disasters, evacuating victims in war zones, trying to work towards ending world hunger not by just dumping food but by like fertilizing the land kinda thing. I wouldn't try and get involved in the politics or anything, I have no business ruling anybody. I just want to help people and hopefully help them be able to help themselves so they don't need me.
>>79724219 I'd want to elevate persons like myself to be higher than humanity, citing that we were the New Gods meant to lead humanity into a bright and wonderful new future under our rule. To those who would support, I would lend give the gentle of hands, and the never ending support of a superman. To those who oppose, I would strike with arrows uncountable, unmerciful.
>>79728051 Eh I'll probably just stay behind and watch the fight with some binoculars, just staring at any of your dead bodies like a creep while the other side is trying to figure out how you fuckers are coming back
>>79728051 Eh I'll probably just stay behind and watch the fight with some binoculars, just staring at any of your dead bodies like a creep while the other side is trying to figure out how you fuckers are coming back
>>79724718 Let's consider I get something like Superman powers. I would probably fake my own death and assume a new identity as full time god like being. Them I would aid certain countries and negotiate changes in their government. Probably I would ask for a island where I can do whatever I want besides some political tweaking and demands for investments in certain research fields. As reward I would do things like taking all the equipment for a lunar base to the moon, dig a hole to make a geothermal power plant, bring an asteroid so they can mine the resources. Maybe I would help in case of a natural disaster but I wouldn't make it a full time job. Mankind shouldn't be dependent on me. I just want to supply resources so they can focus on things like nuclear fusion, space colonization, etc and them I would bask my days in hedonism. In this case I would be sort of a hero but not a typical hero.
Now if I got a power like a Death Note probably I would just kill powerful bad people like very corrupt politicians/crazy dictators/serial killers/etc and not so bad people but still bad people that affect my life like a sociopath. Since the book allows me control the actions of the victim I would experiment to see how far this can go and see if I can make them stop being such sociopaths for years or even decades before dying. So in this case I would be a villain, not a super villain trying to take over the world but still a villain.
Hmmm....Assuming I can make train my regen get to the point where I have no fear of dying easily, I could devote myself to every martial art training available. I'd probably just use it to become an unstoppable X-games gold medalist though.
>>79724219 neither? I'd almost certainly use them for personal gain, but I'd like to do it in a way to also help others.
If I can fly into orbit like superman, I'm sure putting shit into orbit would be a job I'd get great money on for not much work, but others would benefit. Teleporting or superspeed messenger service, sure. If I can see the future, I guess just selfish shit like buying lotto tickets or something, but it's not actually a crime to have magical knowledge of the future and use it for your benefit.
I guess there are some superpowers that are just structured like hero or villain shit where you really can't do anything else with it. like being a soul vampire who drains the life out of people through their shadows or something.
>>79724219 Defends on the super power/powers If I'm something like Superman-level than heck yeah I am going to become a superhero. Make my own costume, save people, become the world's first super hero and a huge note in history books! If the super power/powers is something lame or not that big? Then maybe try and see if I can use it to make some money or just no bother.
>>79724219 For me it would be all about fun and practicality. This is MY power, if I chose to share it with others that's my prerogative. The last thing I would want is for the government/authority to take advantage of me; I should NOT be a tool.
Example: >Superspeed: Running around the world for the hell of it > speedpunching smalltime thugs/jerks > running a giant hamsterwheel to power the world > Speedmurdering Afghani terrorists
>>79725784 >http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Fauna_Energy_Manipulation I could honestly go either way. I love animals and essentially being a real life Animal Man would be great. I could also see myself using the abilities to fuck people up.
I'd probably be an Ozymandias-style anti-villain. I'd probably do something horrifically fucked up, but do it for the sake of saving humanity as a whole. If I could, I'd also pull what Supes did in Red Son and just vacay after my supposed end and watch the fruits of my labor.
>>79724219 I'd find some way to exploit it for monetary/social gain. I wouldn't really live any differently aside from that. I would continue to try and be a good person and be generous and kind to strangers, but I wouldn't go out of my way to fight crime or save people anymore than I do now.
>>79724219 You'll always be a villain to somebody.
I'd be obsessed with protecting my secret at almost all costs because of the implication. I mean imagine you take this nice girl out on a boat, right? In the middle of the ocean, a beautiful sunset going down. You have a couple drinks in you and you make a move. Now of course you'd never force yourself on this woman, but she's all alone in the middle of the ocean with you. You see where I'm goin'.
I live in Russia and i want to make our country better. If i will get powers, i will try to become some liberal analogue of Dr Doom. Revolution is the only way to make Russia a normal democratic country like America. Some people would say that i am villain, but truly it will be a good act.
>>79737547 >have Joker immunity to dying >almost definitely have cartoon physics powers, including shit like swallowing a bomb whole with no worse effects than the pain of a stomach cramp and smoke coming from your ears >Can teleport to anywhere not currently being observed, including inside locked objects >can make balloon constructs just as good as the real thing
>>79725784 >http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Identity_Manipulation Not gonna lie, I'd just use this to make people otherwise the same but believing I'm great, and I'd probably just use it to climb social ladders.
also, y'know, once I had power and influence there's a few politicians whom I would like to 'change their minds' on certain matters.
By the time anyone caught on there'd be at least one true, major, non-fascist socialist nation in the world to see if it can actually be done.
Oh hey, I just thought of my alter ego's name. Rhetoric.
>>79725784 http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Demon_Morphing This party's getting cuh-razy! villain probably. assuming that Devil Triggering hides my identity enough and gives me powers that allow me to escape with whatever it is I stole.
I always laugh when i hear the infamous "the government would experiment on me". People have just so many misconceptions about animal experimentation. It would be more: >could you please pee in this cup >ok, now we are going to extract a little bit of blood >this may sting a bit, but we really need the biopsy >ok, sit down, the MR machine is a bit noisy, but it will be over in 30min >ok, we are finished, you can go home. See you in 15 days!
That, and tons of psychology evaluation questionaries
>>79724219 I'd most likely get a job that benefits my powers super speed - accounting super strength - manual labor fire powers - fireman, as in put out the fires with my mind insect powers - mascot or maybe just become an olympic champion at what I do best. Technically it won't be cheating. I am just using the gift that God gave me
http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Perfection_Embodiment >leaving nothing but despair to come. >implying i can't just use my perfection to just become the living equivalent of buddha >implying i cant spread my teachings as a monk god >implying that shit wouldnt be dope as fuck
http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Immortality_Bestowal On one hand, I want to say that I'd use my powers to stop incurable diseases and spread world peace and shit, but then that just raises so many problems. I'd have to spend literally all of my time making everyone immortal because, naturally, if I make one guy immortal I'll have to make everyone immortal. Even if I only stuck to making people with incurable diseases immortal, I'd have everyone getting incurable diseases in order to become immortal.
So I'd stick with what pretty much anyone would do; keep to myself, and help a very small select group of people. I might give myself, family, and friends semi-immortality if they wanted it (naturally not complete immortality, in case they want to die eventually), but that's it. I'd probably stick it out until either the end of humanity, assuming this sort of immortality lets me stay young and mentally/physically healthy; otherwise I'd probably just make myself mortal once some serious mental degrading happens.
tl;dr it's still the usual "neither" answer. 90% of the time it's gonna be "neither". Being a hero is a huge responsibility and being a villain generally isn't worth it.
>>79739056 >if I make one guy immortal I'll have to make everyone immortal. live on some secluded mountaintop and give immortality to anyone who makes the effort to climb the mountain, throw in a few tests of character as a screening process, and no one will give you shit for your decision
>>79724219 If I gained the typical Superman-type powerset, I'd only be a hero in my own mind.
Not interested in ruling anybody, but want to put my foot down on matters, including, but not limited to; 1. Display of power, includes casualties. Make it clear that I'm going to get my hands dirty 2. Demanding a 2-state solution to the Israel/Palestine area, if not done within six months, I will proceed to sink that part of the landmass, evacuated or otherwise 3. North Korea, addressing all the elements that are the reasons for the international sanctions and assisting in the return of the power to the populace. 4. Returning to the Middle East to eliminate overt radical forces and assisting in international efforts to rebuild key infrastructures to speed recovery of war-torn regions 5. Work my way through the African continent to assist in social reform of key areas in dire need of it 6. South America: I hear there are problems there with militias, will gather intel
>>79724219 Villain, because everything I need, I would use powers to take. And sure, I can justify it with Medical Bills and School payments, but in the end, I'm abusing a power in order to elevate myself. Granted, I would try to not fucking murder anyone, or become some sort of horrifying god king, but theres the idea that, I got powers, other people probably did/have/will and openly advertising that I have powers might not be a good idea.
Unless its just out right reality warping. Then I would either seek employment, or set up a union for other people with powers, because, fuck it, no one can tell me no. So why not use my powers to keep everyone else with powers down in the dirt, and threaten to kill anyone who misuses their abilitys.
Make the world great again, by oppressing the mutants. Thats what Big E would do.
pretty much anyone--in the West, anyway--that got superpowers would use them to be a superhero. the idea of being a superhero is too deeply ingrained in our psyche. there would be moral slippage, of course, but you'd still be a hero.
>>79725784 >path creation >User can create pathways, including trails, roads, streets, highways, sidewalks, passages, rails, ways, etc., of varying permanence from various substances/forces Hero because I can create great infrastructure to ravaged or developing areas for a nominal fee. Villain to the various contractors I'm putting out of business
>http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Blood_Cloning >Can create copies of oneself through blood I would say that the Red Cross could have a few dozen of my clones for blood transfusions, but I'm not allowed go give blood so jokes on them. I start a forever replenishing army instead. CUT ME DOWN, TWO MORE SHALL TAKE MY PLACE
I will use my powers to become an adrenaline junkie. Imagine jumping out of a plane and just rocketing down to earth no worse for wear, plus I could probably make a ton of money helping with research since paying a guy that can go invulnerable to drop off sensor arrays is cheaper then buying/building a robot to place them in super dangerous conditions.
I'm not very good in a fight, but I am very good at making sure there isn't a fight in the first place.
I guess I feel sort of obligated to use my powers to fix the world. I might be the one person on the planet capable of fixing the middle east. I can make people believe in global warming, or make people believe that space travel is vital to our future as a species.
Buckle up, everyone. Because I am going to try and save the world, one belief at a time.
Its sort of an existentially terrifying power because its basically just a specific form of mind control, but at least I can't do personality death.
Not too shabby. I'm sure there's lots of practical applications for sneaky shadow trickery. Grabbing things from across the room without anyone noticing, tripping people that I hate, attacking with it, etc. Seems pretty versatile.
Welp. I'm not going to be a very good superhero with that as my only power.
But I could make a solid C or even B-list supervillian. Its going to be basically impossible for anyone to prove they are their old selves if no one saw them get transformed, and I can demand a kings ransom to turn them back. Even most supers will want to avoid getting in my way, because while they will win the fight they won't like the lifestyle changes.
And the power comes packaged with a really easy disguise, so I can keep my day to day life and my villain identity separate even without a mask.
Just have to be one of those behind the scenes sort of villians instead of a rob a bank in broad daylight kind. I guess my supervillian name would be something shitty like 'Sex Bomb', though.
>>79725784 http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Cosmic_Otherness >Become an old one. >Decide to fuck with people's kitchens late at night and make spooky noises underneath their beds. >Laugh as I am eternal.
>>79725784 >Cannibalism Empowerment >User becomes stronger, faster, more durable, etc. from the act of cannibalism... possibly unlocking abilities related to the affinity and enhancing their existing powers. >Some users may be able to draw sustenance from the act or even slow or stop aging. I would have the worst fucking reputation no matter what I try to do. Be a superhero, everyone will think I'm going to eat everybody. Be a supervillain, every hero will aim for me first because Christ knows how many other heroes I ate and other supervillains won’t trust me. If I get their powers after I eat people them all I need is a shapeshifting, able to anything, and a healing factor and then I’m ready to go.
>>79725784 >http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Metal_Detection So I'm a human metal detector. Trying to a hero or villain with this power would be difficult since all it does is give me an extra sense.
I heard getting rich of off finding old coins and lost jewelry is rare enough that it might as well be a myth.
I consider myself a good person. But i hate fucking everyone. And not like angsty teenage hate, this is a "there may be something legitimately wrong with me" level of hate. There are four or five people I have ever met in my life that i don't consider an embarrassment to the species.
I would kill motherfuckers. And I don't think I'd ever stop.
>>79724219 Depending on the scope of the power it'd probably range from antihero to outright villain. I'd probably start wiping out people I have a problem with. Fortunately most of those people are worthless anyhow.
>>79725784 >http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Demon_Soul >Elemental Manipulation - Users can manipulate every single natural element on earth and even those on other terrestrial bodies >Psionic Manipulation -Users can utilize every single power of the mind
Wow, even discounting Hell-fire powers, invulnerability to anything not Holy/Divine, flight, and demonic shape-shifting, those two alone give me some stupidly broad array of powers.
Yeah, I'd still try to be a hero assuming my Demon Souls doesn't make me evil, go insane, or just involve me dying a lot.
I might even play up the edginess of it and become Lord Dark Edgington; Gentleman Edgelord. I'll dress primarily in black and red! (but it will be in fine silks, tasteful suits, and maybe the odd paisley lining) I will punish my enemies in the cruelest ways possible! (Like putting milk into their tea and giving them the warm seat!) And my backstory is full of tragedy and loss... (My parents won't write me into the will and are giving everything to my snobbish, brother. Also I went to a public primary school)
>fucking powerlisting Oh look an anime character used this ability once, better give it a whole page as if it's a unique power
and not to be a total Debbie Downer http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Attraction_%26_Repulsion
Time to be a master of the mundane, imagine an item just out of reach being pulled into my hand, or something about to fall on me being slowly pushed away, or heroes trying to stop me as I ignore military airspace being pulled to the ground so they can't bother me anymore.
>>79724219 Depends on the powerset and whether or not super powers are common.
But if the situation aligned itself in such a way that would make, say, robbing banks really easy, I'd be a villain no question. I don't have any interest in killing people, but I'd gladly steal money from the 1% for personal gain.
If there are a ton of super heroes getting in my way though, it's probably not worth it.
>>79757754 >not taking it as a challenge to be the brightest damn ball of sunshine possible
Fucking pleb. I had a demon soul, what's your excuse?
>>79758300 if you can control your size, you might be able to minimize collateral damage.
Alternatively, you can stand in front of potentially disastrous tsunamis and such and be a living wave breaker.
>>79758251 >implying banks are used only by the "1%" Dude, pretty much everyone uses banks. You rob from a bank and that will hit EVERYONE who uses the bank, and the poor are going to feel it more than the rich.
