An Important Question part two

After last week’s intense discussion of the lamest superpowers around I thought I’d follow up with a discussion of what every superhero fan knows is the coolest power ever.

Controlling the weather? No Way.

Telepathy? Nope.

Mutant healing powers and an insanely strong skeleton? Not even close.

I am, of course, talking about reality-warping.

The cream of the superpower crop.

The equivalent of using your one wish to ask the genie for infinite wishes.

So cool it’s almost cheating.

Basically the power to make any thought or desire come to fruition, even up to a cosmic scale. Creating universes in your pocket is a piece of cake. Telepathy, telekenesis, immortality, everything is just a thought away.

The few mutants who have had it are the most feared and prized in the world. Being a Marvel head as a kid the two most obvious examples for me are the irritatingly powerful Franklin Richards (son of Mr. Fantastic and The Invisible Woman) pictured above, and the all-time baddest, most evil, apocalyptically powerful mutant: Onslaught.

If you can think of any more, from any universe, please comment below. Coolest one which I’ve not mentioned wins the ability to weld dog’s faces to people (or possibly a free book). Okay, a free copy of the awesome Demi-Monde: Spring and a signed copy of the terrifying A Cold Season.

  1. Technically not a hero, but HIM from Powerpuff Girls could do it.

  2. There’s also the Scarlet Witch from Marvel Comics who basically with three words – No More Mutants – changed the entire shape of the Marvel universe and reality to create a world where they didn’t exist.

  3. I’ll go with Dr Manhattan, from the Watchmen, or the irritatingly reality-resistant Mister Mxyzptlk from Superman’s continuity. Now there’s a man who has everything in life, except a vowel.

  4. Good choices so far. There are more out there than I had thought. Gonna keep this rolling until tomorrow when I’ll pick a winner so keep ‘em coming!

  5. Hey Steven Poore looks like your our winner! Dr.Manhattan is cool and Mr. Mxyzptlk has a great name. Get in touch with me digital (at) quercusbooks (dot) com and the books are yours! Huge thanks to those of you who commented. I was hoping for someone to mention the awesome Emperor Joker though! http://www.comicvine.com/emperor-joker/39-55768/
