What if you knew or met someone with powers?

What if you found out someone you know had superpowers such as a family member or friend? In many forms of media they are usually rejected, unfriended and other things.

I wouldn’t think of them any differently as long as the power doesn’t go to the head change them. I also would be a little jealous but in a good way and hope they can manage to control it.

Remain indifferent, why would I change my view of them just cause they have powers. I would be slightly curious about their powers though.

Remain friends.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised. I'd stay friends with them because I'm friends with them for a reason. I'd still treat it like a normal friendship though so if they abused their power then I'd still be judging them for it. If they had problems with them then I'd be helping them with them. Overall I'd treat it like a skill - as all our friends have at least one skill and theirs is their power. I've got 9 more regenerations and at least 981 more years to live so I'll be there for them as a friend.

If I didn't like them then it would just be a normal daily occurrence.

Depends on whether or not I think they're trustworthy. If I don't trust them, I'll try avoiding them.

I would probably be as shocked as when I found out "The meaning of life" can be rearranged to spell "The fine game of nil". I'd remain friends though since we see enough of that in media already to do it, even foolishly.

I've met an electric person before. When she gets angry, the appliances around her break or switch off. I'd be friends with her for the sake of being interesting, but I wouldn't want her around my computer.

Rejecting or hating a friend when you find out they have superpowers is one of those things that's basically forced by the writers to make conflict happen for no good reason. Or they're trying to make a metaphor for racism/homophobia/whatever. Obviously, real humans don't do things to make conflict happen (except if they have a personality disorder like borderline or histrionic), and in fact we usually try to do the exact opposite - shows with good writing have conflict happening even despite this thing about humans, instead of just having someone pick up the conflict ball.

I mean, maybe if the power was something really dangerous that I wouldn't want to be in a room with, like "I can kill people with a touch", yeah okay I don't think you're a bad person 'cause of that, but I'm staying out of arm's reach unless I'm 100% sure you can control it completely and have totally forgiven me for that one time I drew a dick on your face when you were passed-out drunk.
