    Would like to have the power to have all these powers! LOL.

    But these are the ones I prefer:

    Ability to read minds; Invisibility; Flight.

    there is a show called code geass. The story explains it better the the idea is that some people are given the power of geass by someone who has a geass code by form of contract(not paper contract its more telepathic). The geass power given to someone varies based on the person. I.e mind control, slowing down organic objects in the nearby area(because you cant freeze time, predict the future, change someones memories, read minds etc. the story is a bit complicated and now that i think about it i probably should've said i wanted mind control instead of  making an obscure reference.

    Wish you would've said that sooner instead of me having to give a speech about geass. Also I want to know what the orange in the backround is,

    I've always wanted to make a reference to Orange, but I'm not going to say anything else about it for Yard's sake.

    Anyway it looks like I haven't said it yet but the super power I would choose is electrokinesis.

    Time Travel.

    Being able to manipulate time means you can overcome any adversary by simply knowing what they will do before even they know. Also will come in handy for everyday use. 

    There's one small problem with this idea.
    Lets make up a scenario. Lets pretend that you in some point in the future are gonna go for a drive down a road. All hypothetical of course and regardless if you can or can't in real life, in this scenario you can drive. Anyways, sadly during that drive, you accidentally collide with another car.

    So your past self nips into the future to see what's in store for you and you soon see the aforementioned scene.
    So then, you go about your day with this knowledge, and you avoid this road and drive down another instead.

    That means your past self can't go into the future and see this scene, giving you the knowledge on how to avoid this scene as it never happened.
    So we end up with a paradox loop. You see this event, and avoid it, so it never happens. So you can;t get the knowledge to avoid the original event, so it does happen. Repeat. Over and over again. Looping.
    Its like another version of the grandfather paradox in which a person kills their grandfather before they meet their grandmother, so eventually the person killing their grandfather can never be born and go back in time to kill their grandfather. So they get born, and go back in time, and it just continues looping.

    So in a ways, time travel is kinda useless as a super power if thats what you'll do with it.

    No it doesn't. It will have already happened, because it's in the past. Changing the past isn't the same as changing the future.

    There are many ways in which time travel could work. If you want to look at the theoretical side then there's the many world interpretation of quantum mechanics where all eventualities occur where there is a theory that where time travel or the effects of it simple occur in another of the infinite universes and as a result avoids all paradoxes.

    Alternatively, there's a quantum theory in which the present observed from the past has may possible states until our actions cause it to collapse into one state. For those that watched Flash Forward when it aired (and got cancelled 3 seasons earlier than planned) saw people seeing into the future. People generally changed their actions to either avoid or ensure that future occurred, some were successful in avoiding it while others weren't. With this kind of time travel, or simply just viewing the future, it's impossible to know whether changing your actions will effectively cause the seen future or avoid it.


    There's also three categories within which fictional time travel fits into, immutable timeline, mutable timeline, alternate timelines.

    I personally love the stories in which you are unable to change your own past. Take "Time Travel" by H. G. Wells as an example. His wife is killed so he creates a time machine and goes back in time to save her, but instead of being shot she ends up getting ran over. Regardless of what he does, his wife still dies one way or another causing him to still make the time machine thereby allowing time to continue without any issues of paradoxes. In this interpretation of an immutable timeline, the small details can often be changed such as how someone dies, but the general details/significant events (especially anything involving Hitler) remains the same and are immutable.
    The other way an immutable timeline works is that any travel to the past indirectly causes the future, a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. For example someone dies so you travel to the past to prevent it but you end up being the one that causes the persons death in the first place.
    I should probably stop writing an essay on time travel here...


    But lets be fair here. If we are choosing super powers which are mostly science fiction then I'm sure we should be allowed to chose how that power affects the universe, mutable/immutable timeline in the case of time travel.

    Read these classic time-travel stories.
    THEN I'll listen to your 'theories':

    I'd argue that there are worse things than death. Imagine your head being cut off. You'd be constantly struggling and choking for air... Forever.

    I'm missing the difference here. You're not human, but you can take over any body and use it as your own?

    How would that work? Wouldn't you have to be a ghost to take over someone's body (or a hypnotist)?
