    You know, I think we really should make LUTAS official.

    Your welcome packet includes:
    An official LUTAS t-shirt.
    A copy of LUTAS bylaws.
    A copy of "Aquaman: Our Role Model."

    What?! Any detective or research team would love to get their hands on me.

    Also, I got the ability to look for voids in contracts/the law.

    Researching data banks, look for dubiuos information in profiles (open possibilities for blackmail), look for specific information in enourmous piles of paper. For a power like mine, its usefulness depends on the setting.

    My power is Radioactive blood. I get a power that both spiderman and the hulk have, and still end up in LUTAS.

    But gale speed reading would, in all seriousness, be a great power to have in real life. I mean, what would the average person use something like laser vision for? Cooking toast? Unless you get the superhero body with that (or if you are already very fit or in the army or police force or something), you won't really be able to fight crime. And even if you could, most people need to read or research something more often then they get into fights. Bad power for a superhero, but great for anyone in real life.

    Aquaman´s powers rely of water.

    Mine relies on information. The only settings were I wont have any use are those were power level/ brutal force is the only thing that matters in solving problems (Dragon ball Z) or where all the information is available to anyone in question of seconds.

    Especially now in the digital era where information has become such a powerful weapon. Even Batman would love to have an assistant like me.

    An example: Technology Manipulation

    This power can suck depending on the setting.

    But you can still only speed-read at 2x to 600x the normal human rate. Someone still has to gather all of those books together, and there's no real telling if you're reading the correct one.

    You still have zero super powers besides that, making you utterly reliant on others to be actually useful in a super powered setting. It doesn't grant you super intelligence or any other method of actually using the insane amounts of knowledge access it grants!

    Alright. It seems we need a process in order to establish LUTAS eligibility and LUTAS acceptance. LUTAS cannot accept everyone obviously as not everyone should be in LUTAS. Also, LUTAS can only be so big before it ceases to be a team and becomes a legion or regiment of fail, or something.

    So I suggest a quick questionnaire to be filled out by applicants as well as a brief interview so LUTAS has the opportunity to make an informed decision.

    I also suggest that the welcome pack should include an inspirational book called, "Bad Super Powers and You: An Exploration into Your Mediocrity" by Arthur Cuppy.
    Demonlobster.com because we both know that you know that I know that you like fun!

    I got Reality Shifting which means I can transfer myself to any universe that exists. This could be kinda pointless if there isn't more than one, or unbelievably broken if there is infinite number. I could pull a Stewie from that one Family Guy episode and travel to more advanced universes and use technology and information in them to my advantage. Heck, go to one where I am king-overlord of all and just enjoy myself.

    It can also be used as a mock form of teleportation. Shift to a similar universe that just has no people in it, move to wherever, and shift back.

    Well let's see what you can do. Seeing as you absorb sound, you only need the most basic of training to be a ninja. You can even sneak up on people with super-human hearing because there is literally no sound coming from you.

    Depending on how far this ability operates, you can lead a crack squad of commandos to take out complexes with ease. Who needs a silencer when you can make that bazooka, sniper rifle, and fully automatic machine gun as quiet as space itself?

    You are an expert torture/interrogator because you can drive people insane!

    Depending on how fine-tuned your control is, you could absorb only parts of sounds to mess up conversations between people, making them think the other said something they didn't and vice-verse.

    Came up with these in about a few minutes. Who knows what else you could do with more creativity.

    Oh! Yeah, I forgot that the only way to be useful or even a threat to anyone I need awesome superpowers. Oh wait! None of that applies to all of these:

    The Joker (Batman)
    Sango (Inuyasha)
    Nami (One piece)
    B. B. Hood (Darkstalkers)
    Sokka (Avatar The Last Airbender)
    Applejack (My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic)

    You are making it seem like if the superpower doesnt have a superawesome offensive or defensive use then it is totally useless in most scenerios. It is not.

    With this, I am not saying that my character is uber powerful or an amazing main character. But the power makes for a solid support character along with telepathy, precognition, tracking skills, healing others, teleport. Anyone with this power can become the one who calls the heroes with pieces of information he has found to solve a case. Need to infiltrate to find an specific document from a company? Send the guy who will search out all the archives in a few seconds. A big library, it will take the whole day to search the information we need from all those books. Wait, the fast reading guy will do it for you in seconds. A big pyramid with ominious hieroglyphics or an old text, it will take a long time to decipher it all. Our expert in languages who can also read fast, will tell us everything we need to know in just a few seconds.

    It isnt comparable to Sound absorption who is an specific kind of counter.

    My power cannot be useless unless it is redundant or there is nothing that can be read in that universe. Yes, it isnt the most awesome power but it has practical use. Something, that doesnt apply to what is considered a useless power.

    Why the hate on Aquaman? He's as strong as Superman and durable, ruler of 70% of the globe, and one of the most powerful psychics there is. Don't mention the dang Super Friends unless I can count Adam West as why batman is lame.
