If you were a character in Heroes what would your power be? one catch. Since powers in Heroes appear to be unique it can't be a power mentioned seen in the show or leaked in spoilers.

I would have the ability to change my density. I could make myself very dense and heavy, which I could be strong and near invulernable. Or I could make myself really light, and riding the wind when it blows making it look like I could fly. Sort of the best of two worlds. I don't think they have mentioned anything like that yet.

Psychokinesis, hands down!!

Thats more or less got everything! Except for the strength and time stuff, but you can stop a bullet right in front of you you can levetate your to the point where you can fly! And so much more! Its even better then Telekinesis!

Not to ruin your fun but Psychokinesis is a synonyme for Telekinesis. As for wanting to have every power: Get Reality Warping, and you can do whatever you wish. :p

i say dual powers:
-full control over implosive and explosive forces (continuous mini explosions or implosions can make you and other stuff fly)

or

-control over fire (heat, size, intensity, create it and sustane it without a fuel source) and be heat resistant. (just think up a firestorm, from there you have explosive and implosive forces again)

and

-increased inteligence (like charlie, or sylar)

or

-spontaneous regeneration

and either combination and i'd be very happy, but if i had to choose inteligence and fire control.

Yeh but Psychokinesis although is another word for Telekinesis, PsychoKinesis has a bit more than Telekinesis. Although Reality warper sounds good. I'd stop time and take everything like 60inch HDTV's Blu-Ray players, PS3's, iPods and all that stuff, hahahahahahahah, I will kil you!!

As I said, reality warping the the best power to have :p You can simply shape reality in a way that you have (or make it appear that you have) all other powers *grins*

Neorapsta
January 4th, 2007, 05:38 AM
Yeah, though it should be best to keep them realistic-ish like in the show. Rather than remaking reality as that just gets a bit silly.

PS. Psychokinesis is Telekenesis or vice versa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telekenesis

Gregorius
January 4th, 2007, 11:29 AM
Yeah, though it should be best to keep them realistic-ish like in the show. Rather than remaking reality as that just gets a bit silly.

Reality warping is about as silly as bending the space time continuum, which basicly is space/time warping :p

But if Reality warping isn't allowed, I'd pick the ability to adapt to anything. (Example #1: You get mortally wounded and suddenly aquire spontanous regeneration. Example #2: You really need to get somewhere but you're running late and suddenly you either have superspeed or time slows down around you. Example #3: Getting telekinesis when you need to grab something that's beyond your reach)

Yeh one thing I like about Heroes is tjat these powers have come from evolution and not sum mystical space crap!!

But I very much doubt that through evolution you would be able to change time or stuff like that, Claires powers maybe Nathan powers maybe but not Hiro's!

Gregorius
January 4th, 2007, 01:52 PM
But I very much doubt that through evolution you would be able to change time or stuff like that, Claires powers maybe Nathan powers maybe but not Hiro's!

Actually there is nothing in the current laws of physics that make Hiro's power impossible. Furthermore, reality warping should be possible as well, granted not on a very large scale, if you have the ability to manipulate energy (and thus matter as well).

Remember, we're talking about the human mind and brain which is something we know very little about :)

The Prophet
January 5th, 2007, 04:10 PM
Hmmmm, not watched Heroes yet (have to wait until Feb for the UK), but I've read the summeries, so something like...

Control over Forces:
Such as Gravity, Could Levitate, Fly, make other's weighed down. Also, it would be a lot like Super-stregnth, just increase the push given off by a single flick into that given off by a 100mph car hitting you. Also, a lot like Invurnerability, anything that hits me could be reduced to nothing. Plus many other things, I just can't think of them... :D

Reality Warping's Cheating! :P :D

2ndgenerationalteran
January 5th, 2007, 11:23 PM
thinking about it fire control is the coolest, like Pyro from Xmen plus some. but explosive and implosive forces is unique so i'll stand by it. just think blowing up a bunch of stuff, or imploding them, no door would stand in your way... continuos explosions or implosions let you fly or propel your self forward. Obviously extremely offensive and useful.

or:
Shrikeify myself(moving at 1,000,000,000+c with plank-edged spikes)


BTW I see pyrokinesis as a different form of telekinesis. TK allows one to move objects and the like, but in most shows/books does not allow for the manipulation of objects as small as molecules. PK does manipulate molecules(speeds them up->increasing heat->fire)

Xanderic

You do know that as the brain evolves, you get more unique powers right? So eventually the Heroes will get more than one power... they can only handle one right now. Other than Sylar. But Sylar steals powers, he doesn't actually acquire them naturally.

So I'd want to be the first person with TRIPLE powers :p. I'd have:

1) Alchemy. I can turn anything into gold or silver or something valuable or whatever money I want (Paper bills included). That way I can buy whatever food I want and eat so much.

2) Increased Intelligence. Like Charlie, only five times as good. I remember everything I read AND hear AND smell AND touch AND taste.

3) Fitness. I'll be physically fit all the time. I can eat as much as I want and I'll still have a six pack and the hottest male body on the planet. Eva Longoria will have to compete with me. I'll get a whole desert to have a pic of me, while Eva only has a small part.

Complete control over inertia of myself and things I'm in contact with. I'd be able to move in any direction at any speed I could withstand, or keep myself completely still no matter how you try and move me (that would also give me the ability to hover in mid air). I'd be able to propel objects at virtually limitless speeds, making anything I'm holding a weapon.

Yeah, that's my ability.

The Power of Darkness:
The Power to conjore a Dark aura to suround me, Fire balls of darkness at them, Teleport(charmed Demon shimmy), cause the shadows to hide me(Invisable), and to hold people in place with the aura surrounding them.

But before you complain about "it is more then one power" there is a draw back.

Bad effect: If I do not mediate, the power could cause me to loss control and force me to do things that are Evil.

ShadowMaat
February 8th, 2007, 06:33 PM
Shapeshifting and remote viewing would both be cool. Teleportation, just because I like to travel and that would save me a bundle on transportation costs. ;) And hey, if you can combine it with remote viewing that'd be an easy way to get over the "you have to see a place in order to jump there" hurdle. :D

I'm in one of those forums, and they're exceptionally brutal to people who can't form coherent sentences. Minor spelling mistakes are fine. But when 50% or more of the post is misspelled, it gets messy.

Control over my body at the molecular level. I could reconstitute myself even if I were blown to smithereens. Moreover, I could kill someone and make it look like an accident.
For instance, I could use some of my sparse body fat to form a plaque in someone's brain or heart. Or I could weaken them by attacking their muscles and organs with my immune system.
All I would have to do is touch them.

I'd love to see the ability to steal the powers of others. Not like Peter or Sylar, but more like Rogue from X-Men.

I'm thinking that the hero/villain could absorb the abilities of nearby heroes, but in doing so temporarily prevent said hero from using his/her ability. So basically, if this person came into contact with Claire, he/she would gain rapid cell regeneration for a short time and Claire would lose it for a short time.

Phase/Particle manipulation:

Essentially, i'll be able to shift through phases, making myself exist where either I can't be seen and/or walk through walls. This might allow me to generate shields.
It'll also include selective shifting of particles into another phase, easiest way to kill someone would be shift them to the unliveable zone and voila (would also be extremely painful, for a while at least).
I'll be a walking+living energy weapon :ronan:(i'm also a red belt at karate, so my co-ordination is quite sharp)

However, i'll probably need a lot of food to sustain the power/metabolism, unless we were technically like the Heroes in terms of we being almost like another species, then we'll be under the threat of the "Virus".

P.S. Xanderic, First of all your Number 1 is already in the show, -> Bob

I'd want the ability to see across space & time to any point in time, any location on Earth. When using my power, I would first look to the where and then to the when given that there is an infinite number of moments across time in any particular location on Earth. So when running down a corridor, I could look to see what's currently ahead as well as what will be there - or to look back in time. I think that I would also want the ability to share the vision with someone by touching them. It would work in tandem with what's his name allowing him to bend space and time to a specific point, but I myself would not be able to do that - just see whats there.

having really tough skin like superman and able to grow sharp bones coming out of my body like doomsday but still retaining the part human thing about it

I would personally like something like Peter's power, absorb the powers of other people. That would be cool. A downside would be that I wouldn't have complete control over the power and would have to learn and train myself.

Other than that, either pyrokinesis or Hiro's ability would be pretty cool, along with invisibility.

I don't care that reality warping could be cheating, it would be awesome.
