I guess I inwardly want to be be an explorer because a lot of my preferred super powers involve using them for exploration. But some of the following…
- Time Travel (Going back and forth through time and seeing interesting events and meeting interesting people. Only question is whether I’d risk interfering with any events or not.)
- Multiverse Hopping (Tied to Time Travel a bit, being able to switch to an alternate reality and see how things would be different if X happened instead of Y. Definitely avoiding Nazis win WW2 worlds of course.)
- Invulnerability (I think full on invincibility is normally asking for trouble (since people say it means it’s inevitable you end up in a trapped situation for the rest of eternity) but being safe from harm, illness or hostile environments and not dying of anything save old age (not retaining most of your physical advantages as a younger person) would be nice.
- Size changing (surprised no one else seems to have picked this one, but it’s probably why I like Ant Man more than some people do, because being able to shrink down and explore the world tiny sized would be amazing, so long as you had control over it. Being a giant would be cool too but I’ll likely use this power to see the world from a tiny perspective (and assuming I had invulnerability too I’d travel inside a body and see how it all works).
So some combos of those, perhaps.
