    Yeah but you'd have to have control over it. In some fiction, psychics go insane when they're constantly and involuntarily reading the minds of millions.

    Yeah. Knowing what anyone is thinking about you at any given time, or being able to know the answers to questions on a quiz is tempting, but I'd always be afraid of the whole losing control thing.

    I just dont want to know what everyone is thinking. I think reading peoples minds would be the worst kind of hell imaginable. When someone is standing behind you at the store and they have the random thought "nice hair cut douche" Im not so sure I want to know that.

    Depends on the villain. I'm trying to think of guys that just want to destroy the world, but none really come to mind to be honest.

    *Looks at avatar*

    Actually, Galactus destroys worlds. The world-devourer. He eats all the energy a world can contain to feed his hunger, though he feels great remorse each time. If there was ever an energy source that could feed him forever, he'd fight through the multiverse to get it so he doesn't have to destroy worlds.
