Superpowers like timetraveling, teleporting and invisibility are classic and basic so what other superpowers can you think of?

Ability to disappear whenever I wish (not be invisible but disappear into my own mind and come back when I feel like it) and I would LOVE if there were a superpower that allowed me to know everything. From death to the mysteries of our universe.

The ability to selectively negate mass, wear a thick tungsten suit of armour and it’s utterly weightless indeed having no mass at all makes it buoyant in the Earth’s atmosphere, then just before you hit something you stop negating the mass and the suit’s inertia gives the hit incredible force (Juggernaut). Negate your own mass entirely and you’ll start accelerating upwards by a combination of buoyancy and angular momentum from the Earth’s rotation, depending upon how much of your mass you negate you can rise and fall at a controlled speed, with a set of airfoils (i.e. wings) you can glide around more-or-less like any other winged superhero. If you negate someone’s mass when they’re running towards you their next step will launch them into the air, unpredictably alternating between negating their mass and not makes it extremely difficult for them to do anything but hold onto something and be nauseous.

The power to tell anyone anything and they'll absolutely believe you (as if under a geas) until they encounter any kind of contradictory evidence (then the geas is completely dispelled).

The ability to shutdown the internet on someone's electronic device. At will. I'd basically become the Pope in today's terms, being able to excommunicate people from the "community".

The ability to magically speed up internet connections, even a modest increase in speed would make me filthy rich as investment firms bid for my blessings.

If I were a shapechanger I'd stare in the mirror and let my mind wander with the aim of coming up with the most horrific visage imaginable. I would start with a writhing mass of tentacles eyes and teeth and it would only get worse from there.

Then I'd walk around casually, looking normal, until I'm alone with someone and suddenly it's indescribable nightmare fuel time.

Rumors exist of a superpower, in communities, that make people unable to say certain things, similar to Voldemort and how they must say "He who must not be named" instead, although you can still tell to what they are referring.

In an alternate universe Clark Kent is too shy to spend time with Louise Lane so she never figures out he's Superman and instead dies of cancer from all the x-ray oogling he's been doing.

This is the case of too many good options and never able to pick. Frankly most superpowers are tempting. I guess Id go with superpower to be able to have any superpower I will. But that would essentially make me probably God himself.
But maybe God is more than just all powerful.

Summon a Japanese choir of great magnitude that sings appropriate themes to how I feel in a situation.
Yes, everyone else can hear them too, and after they’re done singing, they remain as almost thoughtless one-purpose individuals and the only way to dispose of them would be to kill them and throw away the bodies.

That'd put anything physically possible under you control, right? According to quantum mechanics, wouldn't you even be able to teleport?

You sure you don't already have this power?

Cats adore me, now I bet you're thinking that's bullshit that's what everyone likes to think when a cat approaches them maybe once or twice but there's more to this story, I've had cats literally follow me around parties and jump in my lap whenever I sat down and it's as wonderful as it is awful, because I'm allergic to them.

And I bet the furry little bastards can tell.

Ahh, I was imagining a pasty Australian, a scar running across his eye, stroking a white Persian nestled in his lap. Now I'll have to add a runny nose to the picture.

The idea of having a superpower just makes me feel meh. An abnormal attribute that gives me some sort of advantage - the emotional gain would be zero, which means net gain would also be zero. A more level - to adverse playing field is more challenging and therefore more rewarding. I'd rather there be more unknowns for me to figure out. Because having a superpower would necessarily mean some extension/enhancement where I feel insufficient, which is what my focus of interest is directed at - I like to figure things out for myself. And don't give me that shit about technology because technology is not a superpower unless you are rich, and when you are rich you have superpowers.

You like playing life on hard difficulty, eh? Hmm... You could give all your money to charity, move to Africa and tell everyone you're an albino, then bang your head against a tree until your IQ drops a few SDs. I bet life will get real rewarding, real fast :P

Or you could just have the ability to make yourself real happy. Prozac Woman, coming to a movie theater near you.

Yeah, but it's not a superpower since you have to be highly competitive to access it. Aren't you a black kitty with the ability to write internet posts?

Come on, really? That's gotta be the short end of the superhero shtick. Can't I be Prozac Cat, or something? The Iron Liver?

Oh, and I prefer kitty of color.
