You are unable to become visible again, You can see through your eyelids. You can never have a normal life again. Eventually the lack of sleep and hyper stimulation from constantly seeing, and isolation drives you mad, and you spend the rest of your miserable existence hiding in dark closets.

Can't get other's thoughts out of your head... Like being permanently stuck in a room full of people yelling at each other. Not to mention the sadness, anger, etc. you'd be subjected to 24/7. Then to top it off, you find out what your spouse really thinks about you ... no thanks.
Regenerative healing powers
12-20-2011, 07:03 PM
You heal quickly because you pull the life force away from whomever is around you.

Super speed is so awesome that you run straight into the nearest object at speeds far beyond light. Unfortunately these impacts hurt more then you can possibly imagine and you opt to just stay still...like, forever...
Eye beams like Cyclopz

The beam is utterly out of control. Whenever using it, your head wants to swerve in any and all directions. To top it off, the power behind the force blast grows stronger with each passing moment.
Wolverine's healing factor.

Absolutely NIFTY power...but it only works with your left foot. Period. All other areas of your body are below-standard in terms of health and wellness..but by golly, you're never gonna get athlete's foot on lefty! :awesome:
In some strange quirk or cosmic pun,
you now control the demon Etrigan...
12-21-2011, 04:12 PM
Unfortunately he is controlled by the subconscious instead of the conscious; thus everytime someone pisses you off, the demon eats their face. Not good for simple domestic disputes...
Ability to shred like Jimmy Hendrix, write like John Lennon, cross genres like Elvis Presley, and emote like Nigel Tuffnel (you now have the pick of destiny)
12-21-2011, 04:26 PM
You also have leprosy, you can't read music, you also have Elvis appetite, you can online emote well when off your face on cocaine.
Can create duplicates of yourself like Multiple Man
12-21-2011, 04:35 PM
each one I make is permanent, and each one can make duplicates of themselves. The number of me's grows exponentially. Soon the world is unable to sustain its population.
12-21-2011, 04:41 PM
Cancer for every fair lady you meet.
12-21-2011, 04:48 PM
You desperately need a transfusion.
12-21-2011, 04:49 PM
Totally covered in callouses due to not being able to feel anything. Going "solo" hasn't been an option for years and playing "stranger" is just down right dangerous.
EDIT: ah... beat to the punch by Art_of_Crime
12-21-2011, 04:58 PM
you can only teleport yourself. You always leave your clothes behind.
shape shifting. again...
12-21-2011, 04:58 PM
Fail to consider earth movement around the sun, ends up in space.
Talking to fish.
12-21-2011, 05:00 PM
You find out that fish are cruel and horribly racist.
still shape shifting. 3rd times the charm.
12-21-2011, 05:11 PM
you turn into a rabbit and are eaten by your dog.
12-21-2011, 05:15 PM
it causes excruciating pain to lift anything larger than a sewing needle.

Travelling a 3 dimensional space becomes too much to bear. Your navigational abilities are only outmatched by your indecision on where to go. Your cape eventually gets sucked into a jet turbine as you wave hello (and ultimately goodbye) to the passengers.
12-21-2011, 08:50 PM
In a Dream you piss your pijamas, in real world there is a horrible inundation and you drawn.
Throwing spikes out of your arms.
12-21-2011, 09:44 PM
You can only throw the spikes far enough to impale your own feet...
The power to transform into a car
12-21-2011, 09:50 PM
You transform into a car, and instantly die because cars aren't alive.
12-21-2011, 10:02 PM
Everyone else around you dies and eventually you wish you could join them but can't
12-22-2011, 06:11 AM
You live in some backwoods town in Texas and are beaten to death for being different.
You are lost in the 31st century as you powers only work once, humanity is extinct and the world is getting closer to its end
12-22-2011, 06:50 AM
You gain them all in one instant rather than having years of growing up with them to learn how to use them. You shred people like wet toilet paper and burn down an entire city before you gain enough control of yourself to get clear.
the power to control people's dreams
12-31-2011, 09:53 PM
You become a succubus and give up any shred of dignity you ever had.
The power to remember any movie you've ever seen.
