So, what would your chosen super power be AND how would you use it in a table tennis match. :Chop:

When I've got enough responses with different super powers, I'll set up a tournament format where players with each super power will play each other until there is only one winner..... :punch:

Choose your super power carefully. :^) What might seem like an easy winner could have a weakness that would be exploited :devil:

Competitors so far:

GMan4911 = Telekinesis (first answer accepted)
0x556c69 = Ability to move at great speed
Retriever = Clairvoyance
Red = Quantum effect
darucla = Teleportation
Der_Echte = Dawei 2008 Super Power on Backhand (participation in this competition is suspended pending an investigation in to unsolicited product placement by Der_Echte) :bandit:

Are there any more competitors? Entries close 01/02/2019

My superpower would either be telekinesis or suggestion. I would use the telekinesis to make all serves to me have moderate underspin so I can loop it easily. At the same time, all of my loops would have more/less/opposite spin than its appearance. With suggestion, I would make my opponent *think* the ball has more/less/opposite spin. I win. :lol:

Bah, telekinesis is like slick pips and influencing the opponent is bad sportsmanship :n:. Got to be more powerful or faster than your opponent, not trick him/her. Speed, yes, that's the key.

I'd be just a little bit faster than Marvel's Quicksilver :devil:. Everything the opponent does happens in slow motion. Never again I would be out of position. I'd play a lobbing game. If I accelerate the pace the point is played out before anybody knows what happened. Problem is I'd have difficulties with the referees: they wouldn't know either. Have to work on a solution for that...

Clairvoyance. Better (than) anticipation. Know what the opponent is going to do before they do it.

Helps make it look like you have the best reflexes. Oops. Better change back into the Clark Kent outfit.

My superpower would be the quantum effect - for example I'd be sending the ball longline and cross simultaneously, as I had no decision on the direction before the opponent reacts...
Also, the ball will get conductive at contact with the table and change into a waveform.

This reminds me of some YouTube videos I came across maybe 10 years ago. Some guy was dressing up as a superhero (complete with Batman-like molded pecs! :lol: ) and acting the vigilante. Like a real life Kick-Ass. Small stuff - breaking up fights outside bars, etc. His sidekick would videotape him and upload it to YouTube. In one video he "broke up a fight", and maced someone. It made one girl so mad she took off a shoe and was chasing him around, trying to hit him on the head. One day it went too far, and the cops arrested him, took him to the station and confiscated his outfit (one wonders how he got home.. :lol: ). I can't remember what he called himself, or what city he lived in (I think it was Los Angeles).

If your ball is seen as a wave, it has a probability greater than null to be at any position - even at your side of the table. This means, it touches it - the point goes to your opponent.

Teleportation. It may be useful at a fine level for playing, but certainly very useful for getting to venues and saving hotel bills, as you can always instantly get home after the match.

My superpower would be that of a chameleon. I could make myself look exactly like anyone I chose.

Before the match I would then make myself look like any one of a number of current politicians.

When my opponent saw me, they would then grow nauseous, vomit, and default the match.

Guaranteed to win all matches by default!
