You wake up in the middle of New York City in the marvel universe with one goal, to get superpowers. Based off your knowledge of the marvel universe what steps do you take to get superpowers? There are a plethora of ways

Personally I’d start at oscorp, maybe fall in line during a field trip and see if I can nab some radioactive spider bites, then from there probably swing over to the power brokers house and see if I can score some bulletproof skin

@emanresu_20: Don't you have to be an unlocked Inhuman for the Mist to work?

@guardiandevil83:

I guess this is the real world me (who isn’t inhuman) entering the Marvel universe so I guess that wouldn’t work.

I’ll stick with the strange thing then.

Either that, or:

  • start doing a random experiment and botch it(defintely will get some kind of superpower)
  • go where they do nuclear tests, and stand where the explosion will happen(will definitely get some kind superpower from that as well)
  • take some kind of super drugs
  • track down Symbiote
  • Make a deal with a demon(I definitely want to be a ghost rider, the penance stare most awesome power ever)
  • Hang out with thor(maybe you can become the new thor after jane, you never know)
  • Find Galactus, ask him to make you his herald(don't know if it can work like that)

Sounds like Strange is the way to go.

Yeah, cause in anything else, if you don't definitely plan on being a good guy, you will have some terrible defacement.

Number 1 choice: Get a symbiote

Number 2 choice: Get me some of that gamma radiation

Number 3: Check into Oscorp and get made into Hydroman, Sandman or Rhino

I'd tell a writer I'm a minority, and then they'd prolly give me some dope-ass powers. Might make me the new Thor.

Most of the Marvel methods of gaining superpowers seem way too reliant on the off-chance that something doesn't go wrong.

  • Captain America: Super-Soldier Serum tends to go horribly for anyone not named Steve Rogers, and quite frankly I don't trust the likes of Karl Malus or the Power Broker to give me powers either. Not that I have the capital to pay for getting superpowers the easy way, either.
  • Spider-Man/Hulk/Daredevil/Fantastic Four: Uh-uh. Not messing around with radiation. That's a 50/50 shot of getting cancer, or killing your significant other with cancerous sperm a la Spider-Man Reign.
  • Dr. Strange: Skill-based powersets where you have to train for years to achieve competency is not for me. I want my powers to be immediate and low-effort, damn it. Also, messing around with chaos magic seems like a terrible idea.
  • Ghost Rider: Nope.

But forreal tho, the easiest way I can think of is to do what White Tiger (Kasper Cole) did and use my comic-book knowledge to find a spare Black Panther costume. Boom, instant powers. Vibranium weave grants me invulnerability. Boots allow me to scale walls and go undetected. Anti-metal claws let me slice through anything (anti-metal soles do that too). If I find some of the fancier suit variants, I might even get energy-daggers, force-fields, and teleportation.

I would rather find the secret serum behind Sentry's incarnation as a superhuman , but it's rather risky I would become Bob's archenemy the Void , Nah I still would take risk even then .

I would rather request Odin or The Unseen to grant me the powers of Thor as a minority or else I would request the Kree to experiment on me to give the powers of Captain Marvel . This two choices would take less risk than my previous imo ....

The void only exists because Bob is mentally unstable. Theres not even another sentry serum out there

How are you going to make a request to any of them ? They dont live on Earth lol

Swear to evil dude, become dr stranges apprentice after, find formula to secret serum for sentry, after drinking secret serum, use knowledge gained from dr. strange and new sentry powers to break deal with evil dude. Continue to study under strange and find other ways to enhance my powers, and then become a hermit for 20 years to study and fully develop my powers, then go find a way to become immortal. After that, enjoy immortality and sire many offspring.

Nothing, just wait around for a couple hours or days, bound to end up with superpowers sooner or later.

I'd do pretty much the same thing you did. I'd just pop into Oscorp, try to get into a classified wing, and see what powers I get.

I’d find wherever Thor is, and challenge him to a battle to see if I’m worthy of Mjolnir.

I don't even know how to answer this. I need to exit first, and the real world is scarier than the Marvel world. So no thanks, I'll stay here =)
