Supernatural power eh? if it were me, I would say control over earth/stone/dirt. Terrakinesis I believe it's called.

I would choose healing Powers, I would love to be able to heal illnesses that are uncurable, and heal big or minor wounds.

Ectoplasmic Tentacles....

though not sure what exactly qualifies as 'supernatural' powers vs. regular superpowers...

Also if you neeed any ideas/inspiration for stories might I reccomend the idea pool?

Those tentacles could be abused in SOOO many ways...

Pet Ghosts.

Postergeist-possesion that causes Telekinesis.

The ability to teleport through shadow.

Extra-sensory knowledge that the undead are near.

The ability to see the Ethereal plane or the real one wherever you're at.

That's what I got for now.

here's one question I have about your question~

Do you want superpowers or do you want superheroes?

Meaning do you want a general character or just some cool ability?

@calzone

like i said, i'm just looking into supernatural abilities that characters would gain and expand... some more useful then others,

of course context would help but i want to see what kind of powers pop up without context first, so far some good ideas have been shared, thanks btw to everyone who pitched in^^

are these supernatural powers to be general super-power, i.e. superheros, or are you looking for more specifically supernatural, i.e. spiritual or ghost-like powers? cause I've been assuming the latter...

"super" powers (super, short for supernatural)

so yeah call them super hero powers if you like,

here is what i got so far (excluding this thread) :

-create fire walls

-respawn after death

-shape shift

-communicate with nature

-walk on air

-invisibility/etherealness

-modify ones weight/height

-telekinesis

-augmented capacities(strength, intelligence, speed and such)

so you see what i had before i started this thread, now adding these to the list, nice idea btw with the ectoplasmic appendages

Bend time:

stop time in specific locations / freeze people / freeze parts of people (circulatory organs?)

live forever, etc.

That really opens things up, then.

Hard to think of anything that hasnt been in a comic book yet. As far as powers go, most everything has been somewhere. I could list a bunch, but I don't know if it would help. I made a big chart to organize powers once. If I can think of it/remember it or where I put it, I'll try to get it up for you.

Only others off the top of my head would be:

  • Teleportation (kinda mentioned already)
  • Electrical Energy Abilities (Examples: Raiden (Mortal Kombat), Ginji Amano (GetBackers), Misaka Mikoto (Majutsu no Index/To Aru Kagaku no Railgun <--- good shows to get ideas from) *my favorite
  • Other Energy/Ki/Chakra based Abilities (Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, certain One Piece powers)
  • Physic abilities (e.x. omnipotent powers, powers of intuition) *not including telekinesis
  • Gravity Manipulation (and other physics based powers)
  • Hypnotic Powers
  • Hyperactive Sensory Perception
  • Time Manipulation

Bleh, which one would I want? Or which one would be the most fun to write?

Let's see...the ability to see through-no, ponies don't wear clothes...

The ability to feign any kind of fictional performance with 100% accuracy (convince someone you're heartbroken, pretend to be someone else, etc.)
