If you could do some power stuff......would you fight crime? This was one of those late night editing conversations Chris and I had. His answer was a pretty good one, how do you go and "fight crime?" and "". Would you feel a responsibility to move to Sudan and help people if you had some super human ability?

On a related note: I love batman but he needs to stop getting credit for "not having super powers." Being a super billionaire is a super power. He has Super human abilities that 99% of the world can't have because he has the money to make whatever he wants. If spiderman is in a jam he has a couple options: jump or shoot some web. Batman can do almost anything and you'll accept it because he is super rich. We need to put an end to this madness. Alright back to work.

Good point about Batman using money to perform wonders.

Personally, I would feel obligated to use my super powers for the betterment of mankind. Of course, you have to have some fun with it too. No point being able to fly if you don't go on a joyride between buildings now and again.

I would definitely fight crime. Depending, you know, on the power, I would do what I can to help, given what crappy state I live in (although the town where my university is located is rather nice). Help the world would be a possibility, like if I had a power that could clean local water, or something, I would do what I could in foreign countries.

But I would probably also end up being an idiot, drunk with power, and kill a bunch of people before I realized the extent of my power, how to control it, and how to help the world. Just my luck.

If you've got a lot of power, you go after the big problems. That means going after North Korea, Iran, Syria, Columbia, the terrorist enclaves in the Middle East, and so on. Once those are taken care of, there will be more money available to throw at local problems like crime.

So, give me invincibility or the ability to teleport, and I'll do some housecleaning in the HQs of all the assholes out there. And none of that stupidity about being merciful to your enemies. A dead bad guy isn't a bad guy anymore.
#15  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 1 Cool
Not quite. Iron Man targeted the guys in the field. While great and all, there are always more recruits. Instead, go after their headquarters, training bases, logistical centers, etc. Since many of these are hidden in civilian areas, bombing them isn't an option. One guy who can't be hurt,...

I've ways been a fan of Karl Pilkington's "Bullshit Man". Just a guy who flys around, and when someone somewhere is talking some bs, he flys in and calls Bullshit. One of the best superpowers ever.

Depends on the power. Different powers and skills would require different outlets. I'd probably do good and help innocent in need and all that. But that may not even involve fighting.

I've always had a fondness for pyrokenetics. This could be used to fight, but the spreadability and overall damage cause by fire in superhero battles... is a serious concern. But what about hiring a bunch of pyrokenetics to create a communal heat source in, say, Russia? Lots of ways to save the world with superpowers. And make money doing it. XD

#19  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 7 Funny
Yeah, I'd probably help people. But not in the "lifting a car off of someone" or "putting out a fire" kind of way. I'd probably hunt down drugdealers, human traffickers, pedophiles, murderers, etc... and kill them. More anti-hero or good merc than true hero.

No, if you kill pedophiles you are a true hero. They get off way too easy.

I guess it depends on what powers I'd get. I wouldn't be any more able to fight crime if my powers were being odorless or being able to speak any language. But if I could, you bet I would.
#23  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 1 Ditto
Where I live, I barely ever see crime. I would probably use powers to put dickheads in their place, i.e, bullies or just the random people that give it. If I ever saw a crime, I would definately try to stop it, depending on the powers I had. Super Powers for the win! :D
#24  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 1 Cool
If I had powers, the first 5-10 years would all be entertainment and personal gain.
Similar to the guy from Jumper.

IF something happens that i witness, or effects me or someone i love, i may take up the call to do good.

1. If I had powers I wouldn't do anything, at first, because how often are you going the accept the help of someone that flies/burrows up out of the earth/amasses from shadows?

2. I'll argue that Batman is the only Superhuman because he is the only one without Super-Anything. Everyone else is some sort of metahuman, alien, whatever, Batman does everything with his fists and mind (and his money is simply a by-product of his mind).
#28  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 3 Cool
I don't think anyone can argue that he hasn't made more money after inheriting that money; I think he still would have been Batman without inheriting it.

If I deem whatever abilities I have to be powerful enough to fight crime with ease, then I'd certainly consider it. You have to remember, some powers make your life easier, while others can do that AND much more. Martian Manhunter has the best set of powers any superhero has, IMO. Lemme just list the powers I know he has: flight, shapeshifting, super-strength (not on the same level as Superman, but still stronger than any human being), invisibility, telepathy, intangibility, healing factor. All these powers would sure as hell make MY life easier AND make fighting crime child's play. I could become a professional athlete without having to train, use shapeshifting to be the most well-built and attractive motherfucker in the room, I can play poker and never lose (imagine how much money you could make out of that in Vegas), I can learn criminals'/terrorists' secrets and not have to fear them using guns, as I can simply just phase through the bullets, and infiltrate their most hidden compounds with either invisibility, shapeshifting, intangibility, or a combination of all those. And, of course, with a combination of telepathy and shapeshifting, you can impersonate any person you wanted correctly. Who knows how useful that could prove to be? But then, Spider-man's abilities, while also very awesome to have, would not be as useful to fight crime AND still manage to enjoy a comfortable life. In the end, it depends on what powers I have.

True story about martian manhunter, but you gotta admit, not being able to be around fire is kind of a pain for a downside.
