Re: If you could have one superpower. . . .

The power to absorb other superpowers at will (ie. no Rogue "can't touch anyone" or Peter Petrelli "can't avoid getting uncontrollable nuke powers if the guy comes near me" negative consequences).

Telepathy would be torture.

I doubt many could hack it, it would emotionally devastate most of us.

Re: If you could have one superpower. . . .

If this seems like a valid answer, then Ion's Green Lantern ring.

If I need to pick just one power, then I would choose the ability to grant any attribute of any fictional character to any real person - including superpowers.

If that still seems too much like a cheat for the OPs purposes, then the ability to make people (including myself) ageless in optimal physical condition.

The ability to bring people joy.

Is there a comic character that does that? If not, flight.

Teleportation.

And I am truly not being a copycat, auntie!

I have wanted that ability since I read "Ringworld" and learned of Stepping Disks!
