The Results

Due to a last-minute influx of power submissions, the grand total ended up being 110!

Click the links at the top of the page to see the powers – “All Powers” for an entire list with full descriptions, or separated into unique/duplicate power summaries.

The most common power chosen was a tie between Teleportation and Universal comprehension (powers related to being able to read/speak/write/understand all languages), chosen by seven people.

The second most common was a tie between Shapechanging and the ability to control fire, at four people each.

And the third most common was a tie between Transmutation and Perfect memory, at three people each.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a power! I hope you find the results as interesting as I have.

What now? Well, it sure would be interesting if something happened to make these power choices actually meaningful.

You chose your powers. Now, how are you going to use them?

To be (maybe) continued…

  1. I think I already answered that question. Time to make all the other new superheroes feel comfortable, well-dressed, and invincible!

  2. Here’s one thing I found interesting. I went through the list of chosen superpowers and compared them to IGN’s top 10 comic book heroes. Those heroes, for reference, are, in order: Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Wolverine, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Hal Jordan (Green Lantern), Wally West (Flash), The Hulk, and Daredevil.

    These superheroes have an iconic set of superpowers. But very, very few of them were chosen. Superman’s Flight was sort of chosen by Glyneth, though the form of the power was different. One of Batman’s “superpowers” was arguably chosen by Guspm, which was being really good at anything, although I think that’s too vague to be a match and Batman isn’t exactly bestowed with superpowers in the traditional sense. Spiderman’s spidey sense was arguably chosen by Nathan with Premonition. Hal Jordan’s powers were arguably chosen by ktaylor. But there are still a lot of powers in that top ten that were not chosen, and with the exception of Hal Jordan’s one trick pony, all of the superheroes had talents that were not chosen.

    Two things to take away from this. A lot of iconic superpowers were not chosen (perhaps out of fear they would be duplicated). And any comic book about our team would be decidedly offbeat.
