Hrm, be tracked and/or captured by some government agency so they can go all Elfen Lied on me or have a ubiquitous sense of superiority from knowing I'm special? I'll go with keep it a secret.

I would secretly take over the criminal underground and rule from behind the scene's. No one would know exactly how I was and learning my identity would be the last thing anyone would do. Basically I'd go the villain route in an instant!

i'll keep it a secret.

but don't expect me to wear ridiculous looking costumes with external underwear anytime soon... or save a whole city from the mafia.

i'm a pretty self-centred person, so unless there's benefit for me... I won't make any effort for anybody.

Nah, I'd just let my enemies underestimate me.

Kept it hidden. Too many reasons to type out. Though a major reason would be two words, guinea pig.

I don't fancy the idea of becoming a government test subject. Secrecy it is.

I probably wouldn't even do anything with a superpower, beyond amusing myself. Wouldn't break any laws or catch evildoers or anything. Nope.

Depending on what superpowers you got though (like if you became something akin to superman for example) why would you even think about fearing government experiments? If I got powers like that anyway, the first people that would know would be the people I don't like. I'm evil like that.

If it were something capable of being kept secret, I'd probably try to. Most superpowers are pretty obvious, though.

It depends on the nature of my superpower...

If it was something badass like pewpewing lasers out of every opening of my body then I would probably use it to slowly gain control of the entire world and create one nation under one dictator which would be passed on to my offspring so it would continue on to dictate with my bloodline.


I like the way you think!

Also for me, it kinda depends on which power I got.

Depends on the power, yes. Invisibility, telepathy, all these "sneaky" powers NEED secrecy to be truly efficient. But they also are the only ones that really can move stuff. Being invulnerable or able to fly wouldn't make you much greater than a freakshow if they can't be reproduced somehow.

Anyway I'm a scientist, so I guess I'd try to find a scientific explanation for my powers and in doing so I might seek the help of more trusted scientists. Going totally public... heh, dunno. I'd try to keep it hidden, but then again, once you tell someone, you might as well tell everyone. Though if it was something that still leaves me very vulnerable to assassination attempts I'd be careful about it, you never know when a conspiracy nut or a megalomaniac might want to get his chance at his 15 minutes of fame.

1,000,000 men can keep a secret if 999,999 of them are dead.

Nice Thread, Y'know as a kid I always dreamed of being a super hero
But it all depends on how powerful my powers are and if there are other people with powers as well (and if their evil). I wouldn't just come out and say I have powers I'd wait until the earth or people close to me were in danger and swoop in and save the day.

I think in this day and age it's nearly impossible to keep a secret identity so I wouldn't bother. I'd try and make the world a better place, taking down bad guys, stopping wars, protecting the world from alien invasions....you know the usual super hero things

I was always raised to believe that you should help those less fortunate than yourself, so my powers would not be used for my own benefit but for the good of mankind and those weaker than me....ally to good and all that crap

Yes. That way, my enemies won't notice what powers I have.
