I would want to go through time starting a kinda super group of famous minds. Like in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Sort of.

I'd rather make a super band. Like have Dimebag Darrell and Mozart and Dizzy Gillespie and Yngwie Malmsteen (he's dead, right?)

Does time travel include time control? as in, being able to freeze time, rewind and fast forward? Freezing time seems like an awesome option, you can do whatever you want and noone will even know you have this power,since everything happens while they're frozen.I see it already, steal from the rich, give to the poor, punch people in the face(looking at you palin), prevent (small) things from happening, making sure I invest money into the right stuff at the right time.
As for meeting people from the past, 1. Do you even speak their language? 2. What makes you think they won't kill you where you stand? And if you want to convince them to listen to you, wont your leverage cause worldchanging events?
Let's take Napoleon as example, if you give him information about what happens in the future, he might not have been defeated in Russia, meaning he'ld be in control of most of Europe and would probably have continued his push towards England and would've probably meant that most of Europe would've been in French hands. That would mean no Sovjet Union, no Third Reich and who knows what consequences that would have on the rest of the world.

Eternal Youth is a no-brainer (assuming you get to pick a resonable age somewhere between 20-30). It would allow you an infinite amount of time to discover how to do the others. And you also would have no need to Time Travel to the future as you will get there eventually anyway.

Eternal youth doesn't come with immortality

Well, in regard to speaking their language, you literally have all the time in the world to learn. Let's say I wanted to go and talk to Socrates. Now, I speak modern Greek, not Attic Greek. So what I'd have to do is go back in time to the point where Koine Greek became Modern Greek, and learn Koine Greek, and then find the point where Classical Greek became Koine Greek, and then go to where Attic Greek and Classic Greek split off.

Omnilingualism would be cool too

Time travel, hands down. "Hindsight is 20/20." So many things I would change, just about MY life. Not to mention all of the mysteries of the past to explore.

Indeed, the amount of times I would slap my past self on the head for the bad and dumb decisions I made.. I'ld risk giving myself a concussion.

Plus, by taking advanced technology into time periods when others don't have it, you are effectively a superhero. If I showed up during the Norman invasion with a shitload of machineguns, I'd be a wizard with magic killing sticks.

The list is not really "super" powers


Eternal Youth that isn't immortality? Isn't that an oxymoron? AS well as removing it as a super power?
Eternal youth in itself is defined as physical immortality.
Immortality isn't invulnerability so would be subject to physical trauma to cease the physical form.
Time Travel even in Dr Who style is not really a superpower...its a techno power...
I wouldn't want it-just to full of things to tippy toe around. I wouldn't want to accidently ret-con myself from existence.
Super Kinetics and super intelligence..Hmmmm


I'd want elemental control of some type... next best:
I picked metamorph.
Be lika power ranger! Or Wonder Twin...lol

It would work best for evil... ULTIMATE spy /assassin!
I could replace a president, or a well keyed person, the family dog!
All kinds of cashflow-be MY dirty secret on HOW I get inside! Who'd believe me without showing too much and exposing myself to unpleasantries?
