I was originally going to score the two different superpowers but I found it too difficult to do so. So it’ll be up to everyone to vote on which superpower they feel is the best.

  Telekinesis Super Luck
Positives
  • The basis for many superpowers; may evolve in to other powers
  • Can move things closer to you (less hustling)
  • Can deflect attacks/move harm out of your way
  • Possible to learn age shifting which could lead to immortality
  • Telekinetic flight
  • Widely used power, so there’ll be others you can learn form
  • The Force

  • It’s a passive ability (less hustling)
  • People react positively towards you

  • Mentally demanding
  • Psychic strength may be proportional to the user’s physical strength

Telekinesis is a great power that allows you to do many different things but you need to be dedicated to the power if you want to fully use it. The 06010 has always been adverse to hustling so I find telekinesis a bad fit for it. You can argue that you can be lazy with the ability to move things with your mind but if you really want to take full advantage of the power there’s a lot training that needs to be done. And not to mention that it’ll be mentally demanding if you want to use the advanced powers or even move large objects like Hawaii. You have to put in the work for the power you want out of it.

Super Luck on the other hand is epitome of the “never hustle” mantra. It’s a passive power so it’s always working without you having to expend any extra effort. It will generally make your life better as things will always be in your favor. You may never even know that you have this power. However, your luck could run out at some point and maybe things will take a drastic turn for the worse as the universe attempts to balance out your luck.

TL;DR Telekinesis is the strongest power but requires a lot of training. Super Luck is the epitome of the 06010 with it’s lack of hustling.
