A character that cries diamonds, bleeds rubies, and sweats glass. Sounds like kidnapping bait.

Solution: Put a knife and onion near eyes and cry onto the knife. Bingo, diamond blade. Probably would be a weapon enhancer.

Telekinesis that only works on cerebro-spinal fluid. It's like a blender in your skull!

X-Ray Vision, in which your eyes actually output high-volume x-rays. Carcinogenic staring contest, go!

Teleportation of objects smaller than a cue ball. Sorry, did I just steal the keys to the villain's space shuttle? waii
Smile for me!

The best and the worst.
[up][up] My friend's webcomic has a race that bleeds diamonds, kinda like that. They ARE a race of kidnap-bait.

The power to instantly be able to recall one piece of information per day... regarding literature. Fun for themed villains.

Shut up!
Bingo, diamond blade.

Or a diamond onion.

There have been a few mutants/metahumans/whatever with the ability to control large groups of insects/spiders/other "bugs". How about the ability to control one bug, over a short distance for a short period of time. If you try to control it much longer, the poor bug's brain burns out and it dies.

How could that be useful?

Well, you could stop that wasp from buzzing around your food. Or you could safely relocate poisonous spiders without having to kill them. Just mind-control them into walking away.

Fear is a superpower.

[up]Use a deadly spider (black widow/funnelweb/recluse/wandering) as an assassin. Keep it in a box with holes, release it when you're somewhere near the victim, and command it to bite the victim. Catching it wouldn't be much danger as you'll be able to command it to get into the box w/o biting you.

How about the ability to move doorways around? If the villain was charging at you, all you'd have to do is move the door and he'd slam into a wall and be cut off from you. Also if you opened a door slightly and then moved it under the villain, they'd fall through.

[up]Doorways? If pipe holes count as a doorway, the character can move that hole over the opponent's heart... Ouch- loads of blood, that's for sure.

How about the ability to manipulate bonds? It is kind of vague just like my posts.

Disturbingly suspect.
[up]This power is so ridiculously overpowered, it ain't even funny. xD
Deep childhood trauma. Saw his dad do it with his mom-
A trauma, really? What a wimp!

I had a guy who was a human metal detector. I think that's one of those things that's more useful in every day life than to be weaponized, though.
[up][up] Especially if you consider covalent, ionic and hydrogen bonds AKA atomic interactions that create the structure of most of the stuff you see around you, including the human body.

Yeah, you're basically talking about someone who can turn anything into a nuclear bomb there.
What's precedent ever done for us?

The ability to fire a beam of goats at people.

Think about it: Sure there would be a lot of goats to clean up in the end, but it would certainly knock out whoever is the target and it could cause a lot of confusion for any villain who's getting pelted by the goats.
Note to self: Pick less edgy username next time.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
