Poll: Would you rather have Fire or Ice powers? (216 votes)

Fire 31%
Ice 69%

Pyro or Cyro.

If you could have control over one of these, which would you choose?

Leave some reasoning as well :3

Personally I would like to be an Ice user. I would be able to tank some heavy damage with ice shields, I can slow people down (to be fair people would probably slow if they were lit up like a candle), and I can take out people without actually hurting them.

I have a bad feeling that this has been done but I can't find it, i'm hoping not.

Anyway,

freezing people would kill them faster than burning them

you get more environmental temperature immunity as you'd be able to survive extreme cold environments like the arctic or deep below the ocean and be able to generate cold in deserts

for fire, releasing fire in the arctic will just melt the ice around you and cause you to fall down to a freezing death, the only upside of fire's environmental temperature immunity would be if you were in a volcano or something

ice has ice constructs which you can use for defence

fire would probably also burn your clothes off

fire can easily cause unwanted destruction

Iceman and Captain Cold have pretty sweet versatility with their powers. You can make ice constructs (weapons, armor, barriers), ice physiology, freezing effects/heat-steal on targets. Their are a lot of applications.

Fire is pretty destructive. Applications are mostly centered around burning things. Flight is probably the greatest advantage, but not impressive enough to convince me it's better than ice.

I may change my answer to fire. Am I also immune to the element I choose?

@raptusnebula: Wouldnt need to release fire in the arctic you'd be naturally warm

The offense of fire would be your defense

Ice powers

Both are the most basic and lame powers but only a fool would pick fire. It has zero applications to everyday life, not diverse at all, you just cause destruction both to your clothes and environment around you. People only prefer it because they have a childlike mentality of "OUU FLASHY N COLORFUL"
