As for getting powers from the Tesseract: that's pretty much a given. The Tesseract *does* give you powers. It's a god-cube or a wish-cube.
idk lol, I didn't say anything about super powers, but I just think you guys may be thinking a weeeee bit too deeply. Which normally is a great thing anyway. It makes speculating fun, that much we have to agree on.
