    Yeah same but the more you use it you'll age faster in people's eyes. I would like it that you are immune to ageing once you use the power.

    Out of all the powers in the poll Immortality is the best one.

    Telepathy is no good, do you really want to know what people think? You would be hearing hundreds of wierd and perverse thoughts every day. However you could use it to get rich I suppose.

    Stopping time is the second best in my eyes, the only disadvantage is that you are aging every time you use that power. So you are practically killing yourself at an accelerated rate.

    Immortality allows one to have all the time in the world to do whatever they want. Vandal Savage is the best example of what one could do with this power.

    If i were allowed a power outside this list I would probably choose Magic as in Dr Strange level magic or Reality warping (Franklin Richards).

    If stopping time prevented you from ageing, that would mean your cells wouldn't be respiring, so energy (to cause movement or even basic physiological reactions) wouldn't be produced.

    Therefore, time would have to progress for you personally in order for you to still remain functional.

    easily flying

    imagine that, no more travel expenses
    But if you chose invisibility, you could easily get past border forces

    Depending on the specifics of how the superpower works, stopping time would enable you to pseudo-teleport by stopping time all around you, walking to your destination then resuming time
    If you could make it only affect small areas, you could freeze a small cube in time, and then walk on top of it, since the molecules are frozen in place, allowing you to sort-of levitate

    Stopping time for sure, the possibilities are endless. Ultimate cheat code.
