I'm working on a superhero RPG as a module for my generic RPG system. Obviously, the bulk of the work is in creating and, to an extent, balancing, the various superpowers. There are many, many kinds of superpowers, so I thought I'd ask around here and elsewhere for ideas for superpowers. What kinds of powers would you be excited to play in a superhero RPG?


Of course I already have a bunch of obvious ones like super strength and super speed, etc.

Standard Answer to all 5E rules questions: "Ask your DM."

Id be happy with just Flight, although I guess invurnablilty would come in handy too just in case I "accidently" flew into a plane or something.

The power to give myself powers, of course.  That and, you know, the ability to communicate with fish.

Character and world creation are a form of expression. The point is that some people don't have much to say...
