testing a geeky theory{custom super hero}
basically I am just testing out something i see everyday but don't resemble as much as you'd think. the fact of the mater is I see people that like strength over all eles in battle. the problem is strength is judged in many different ways. so I have devised two challenges{it may or may not be} just two see if people can think outside the box when it comes to strength.

challenge one: think up ten powers that aren't god like or used by an a character thats ment to be overwhelming. that actually give you an unconventional advantage in battle. you will be graded on originality{so the more common place a power the less points you get. also cross uses of powers. {basically do they work together.{the idea of this test is to see what different people call strength without mention super strength and the common energy level. mainly because thats what has become of the stories that people come up with. so what is power to you.}{it's also to warm up your mind for the next test.}

one rules
1. no super strength or ability to control people.

test two. List any super power that isn't battle related that would give you an advantage in life. in otehr word stuff like instant repair ability instant refill of coffee.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

testing a geeky theory{custom super hero}
Not sure if this counts for anything but, I once had an idea for a (super) hero. His only ability was that he could hold the hands of 2 different people and make them instantly understand each other. I agree, this does not present many opportunities for dramatic fight sequences.

RE: testing a geeky theory{custom super hero}
I have only one power I would need/want...

FLIGHT.

That can be used every day, it is the most useable power one can have. It can also be used in any combat. You can have all the powers you can think of, if you can't fly and I can, see you, off I go and you can't touch me.

Then breathing underwater, that shit could be handy in a lot of situations.

Ah, this one is interesting BURROWING. Where you can "swim" in the ground. This could be even more useful and surprising in combat than flight or underwater breathing, although, you would need a special kind of breathing while you are underground, burrowing through...

Telekinetics. Virtually limitless possibilities with this one.

Super sight and super hearing. With super-smell... Animal type of perception...


All this and much more can be found in DC Universe MMO game. You can create your own superhero and then choose what kind of power, weapon and traveling your superhero uses. Pretty interesting combinations. For example, Acrobatics is far more superior for fighting than Flight is.

RE: testing a geeky theory{custom super hero}
My first and most deadly ability would be the ability to pull elements from around me and construct candy from nothing. The influx of small viscious creatures (let's call them children) will overwhelm any enemy either with cuteness or whine. Sure I could bring forth weaponry, but why call forth an iron bar when a chocolate bar does five times the work.

I also want a "Mary Poppins' Let's Tidy Up The Nursery" power. Just a snap and the house cleans it self. You snap your fingers and the room starts to tidy itself in a fight and your enemy will run away.

My last ability would be the "Textbook Drone" ability. Should I feel the need, I simply start explaining something and slip into a jargon-heavy monotone with -40 soporific effect. Only a +20 Nerd can resist and as long as they don't toss an "I Already Know This" attack, I'll be invincible.

Note: It is inadvisable to advertise such powers to populations of children because they tend to cause involuntary seizure-like eyerolling and a serious breathing disorder known as "heavy much put upon sighing".
