Super Speed

looks at the list, thinks if he would want strength to turn coal into diamonds, then says “Nah.” like the guy at his desk in Superman: The Movie did, and then makes up his mind

Well, I have to go for two. They are (in order of importance):

  1. Flight. All of the other powers Superman has are wonderful and grand (you thought I’d say “super” didn’t ya :wink: ) but flight is where it’s at for me.

You can soar into the sky as the air whips or roars (depending on your flight speed) over you, through the clouds, into the upper atmosphere and then plummet to the ground only to sonic boom your way back up to a triumphant perch above it all. Personally, I’d do everything Superman did (and more) when he took flight in Man of Steel for the first time.

Plus, there’s the romantic side of flight. Think about it. You can pick up your special someone and show them the world in ways nobody else could. You can fly through the heavens during the day and feel the warmth of the sun’s warming warmth and it’s glowing glow on yourselves and at night, you can soar into the sky together and be surrounded by the stars and moonlight as you hold each other, embrace and take in the everlasting joy of the moment. It’d be awesome.

  1. Speed. Want to go to China and get real Chinese take out? Dean Cain did it in Lois & Clark through visual effects and editing but you can do it for real. Want to run across an ocean as whales are breaching and take in the mind boggling and captivating wonder and beauty of nature in ways no other human can? You literally have the power within you to do so.

Of course, these abilities would also allow you to help people and save the day when need be. All the joyriding is fun but using those powers correctly and doing what’s right is the imperative of having powers and abilities far beyond those of ordinary women and men.

His anger and heat vision. He’s more badass when he’s angry

Power wise, a lot of these can be condensed into Super Speed. Flash has proven to beat villains who turn into metal, amongst other things.

But, freeze breath seems very interesting and cool. Sad that it isn’t used as much for movies.
Although, Brandon Routh using heat vision was pretty cool.

I just watched an episode of the 50s Adventures of Superman TV series here, where Superman reveals that he has the power to cure radiation poisoning in others by touch. So… that one?

I’ve always been on x-Ray vision fan myself. I like the rare times he does a thunder clap too. Clears anything in his path, puts out fires, calms strong winds. With his freeze & power breaths he rarely uses the clap burst, but when he does, it’s always a surprise. I forget he has that in the bag sometimes.

I think I’d go with invulnerability. I could fall off a building & I’d be ok. I like that. There’s that peace of mind & feeling of freedom to do anything, and I’ll be ok.
