    i would like to have the power of the lady in the bed who creates a night light from her hand just cause i think that it will evolve into havok's power from x-men.

    I think I will want the power to de-evolve people. That way not even Isabelle can stop me and I can rule the world

    Healing, yes that seems best to me. It can help others even though it is a curse on the healer in many ways.

    Telepathy would be painful and cause it's own problems.

    Isabelle has just about every power!!! She can control people with her mind (making those guys kill each other), she can make people sick (Lily's other daughter), she can give people false visions (Collier), she can fall off of buildings and not die!! I want what she's got!

    The ability to possess the bodies of others, a la Dawn Stiles on "Smallville," would be awesome except for the whole part where my original body dies and I eventually move on to the afterlife.

    I would want to be like Isabelle or Rogue from X-Men, in the sense that you could use pretty much any power that the others had. Only, unlike Rogue, I wouldn't wanna risk killing people just by touching them.

    I would like the power to vision the truth. I would to know the truth about past events. I don't want to travel to the past, that gets complicated. I would like to be able to see what really happened, not what someone thought would make a good story.

    If we're only talking about powers we've seen on the show, I'd either
    • Alana's ability
    • Burkhoff's ability (assuming it would just be the ability, not the experiment side effects)
    Alana's ability would be personal, though I could share it with
    friends. So long as I didn't become addicted to it I'd be quite
    content. My biggest complaint is I don't have enough time in the
    day/year to do what I want. This would at least let me do some stuff
    in no time at all.



    Burkhoff's apparent ability thus far is self-regeneration. Assuming I
    didn't have to deal with his side-effects from the experiment, that
    would be good. And if they can use me to find the cure to cancer
    (without me being a lab rat) all-the-better.



    Some of the other cool powers (like Shawn's healing, Maia's precognition, etc) come with waayyy too much baggage. I'm not saying I'm selfish, but I'd feel responsible to heal everyone in sight (and god forbid word got out). That's way too much responsibility for me. Meanwhile, Maia's ability would be Hell, I'd never be surprised again (and there are some things I'd rather not know about tomorrow). With both Shawn's and Maia's powers you have to ask the question: where do I draw the line? If I see something bad happen do I try to stop it? There's a lot of bad stuff in the world, do I try to stop it all? Do I heal this guy who's really suffering but also happens to beat his wife? etc

    telekinesis(move things with mind), pyrokinesis(firestarter), regeneration, everything issabelle has especially being hard to kill & mind control, the power diana's sister has(if she asks someone something, they must tell the truth), not in the show but what would be great is time travel(i dont think anyone had this power, the future people had to use time machines, i think), all of these would be awesome, go back to 1933 & get the fascist coluntries to destroy each other(watch the ussr, spain, & italy destroy germany & then each other), or simply cause all the fascists to combust, teleportation would be good, go from san jose to berlin, back in time, & make the fascists not imortant enough for even a sentence in the history texts
