    How about...

    Okay. Can someone compile a list of all the suggestions for categories so far into a list? I want to get at least a trial run of this going within a week or two. I figure it's going to be a bit of a rough start as we work out what works and what doesn't as far as rules go, but still.

    One thing: I don't want to be too strict as far as rules go on this. The only really hard and fast rules should be to meet the deadline and to make sure that your entries don't break any site rules. That means no porno entries.

    I think it might be best to start off with less restrictions, at least at first. If you want a text length restriction, I'd suggest "fits in the character limit of a single post."
    Dang, there goes my 'Most Common Superpower' suggestion.

    Have you played Unknown Armies? Because you just described my bibliomancer right there.

    Also, remove the parenthese'd stuff from my suggestion please, that was a fragment from my first draft and I should have caught it.

    I Had a Run-In With a Super-Hero, And Now I've Got Powers and a Weird Guy Is Trying to Kill Me


    I'm tempted to say something like
    I Fight Crime, My Family's Still Alive, I'm Emotionally Stable, Everyone Loves Me, And I Always Catch the Bad-Guy, But I'm Still Interesting to Read About
    but I think someone already suggested something similar.

    I have a suggestion but it's pretty much impossible.

    Create a superhero or villain with an ability that, to the best of your knowledge, no other superpowered character has ever had.

    And it should be a somewhat useful ability. Not detachable toes or the ability to break every plate in a cupboard 4 feet away when you sneeze or anything stupid like that.

    Korg can speak and move. Neither are desirable features in a super-hero rock.

    I guess what I have in mind is more like a philosopher-stone (not a Philosopher's Stone), who just sits there in the sun all day long, contemplating, unable to communicate with the outside world. Now, someone, make that interesting.

    Topically, I always think someone with some form of aurora light powers would be cool, but it would probably end up artists just drawing rainbows shooting out of their eyes.

    It would sort of come down to The Invisible Woman's powers. No one really seems to know how to draw them.

    I mean, granted, they are invisible.
