ITT Weakened Super Powers [Decisions] [Useless] (5)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2017-03-14 20:58

Think of a regular super power, post it here and someone else will limit it in some way, for example a limit to the super power of flying could be that it only can be done 1 hour each day.

Or you can come up with a useless super power, such as being able to move a piece of paper without touching it for 5 seconds once a day.

Write about how will you use your useless or limited super power or even someone other one in the thread.

If I had that paper one, there's some specific circumstances that it would be useful:
  • Get important paper out of filing cabinets without having to open the cabinet
  • Interrupt a lead violinist by making their music fall during a concert
  • Kill someone by getting a newspaper sheet stuck in their windpipe/lungs
  • Win every paper airplane contest
  • Make a car crash with a large sheet over the windshield
    I can't see this being too useful for any plans of world domination or saving people's lives daily, but it could be useful if I was already powerful and in a different non-crime fighting setting as a sort of last resort trick up my sleeve.

    To get things rolling here's a regular super power, super strength. I'd be strong enough to lift at least an oil tanker without being crushed or killed.

    When exerting any force greater than what you'd be normally able to, you lose all sensory input (including balance and touch, but not kinesthesia; reflexes still work). This lasts until such a force is no longer exerted.

    The best way to make use of such a force would probably be to primarily use it for short, intensive actions (such as throwing large objects) or static actions (keeping a door shut or holding a supertanker (but not actually lifting it or moving around with it)). Blocking or reflecting bullets could also work due to the speed at which it would occur.

    My challenge: mind reading, but no "always on" limitations.

    That sounds pretty limiting, still useful though; if I were in great pain I might exert some extra force and be temporally relieved from it. I'd probably try to become either a superhero or a sportsball champion. I'm sure with practice I could throw a ball or hit one without needing that sensory input in something like baseball.

    For the mind reading, you can only read on person's mind at a time and only if you have skin to skin contact. Reading a person's mind is more like watching a movie where you experience their emotions/feelings.

    I guess I'll choose another one, telekinesis.

    👯 My super power is I could turn anything into marshmallows.

    But they are the bad kind of marshmallows that are floury and melt too fast.
