Well, if you be 'unfun' like imglasses was being, timestopping would kind of stop everything, making things in general just uncomfortable. But let's ignore that and say that only the 'concept' of time as we know it and people stop moving and registering thing for as long as the timestop lasts. And with it working like that, you could do anything to anyone and everything, assuming you could timestop for a eternity.
Let's all keep in mind that having a superpower isn't just about the power itself, but also how everyone reacts to said power. If the general public feel threatened by you, they can and will try to stop you, and even if they physically can't stop you, they can still be an inconvenience to you for your entire life. Inversely, if everyone respects your power, they'll soon just keep ramping up their expectations for you, demanding that you do this and that and you either end up living your life saving all the dipshits who walk into traffic*, or you refuse, in which case you'll inevitably end up back at situation one.
For those reasons, I think my chosen power will be about affecting other people's minds/decisions, so that I can avoid these situations. What specifically, I'm not sure, but since everyone else seems to be striving for the OPest perfect power, I guess the winner in the mind-power category would be the power to completely and effortlessly do a total 'reprogram' of a person's mind. E.g. be able to make them think/believe/do anything you want.
*And of course, when people learn that there's always be someone to save them, everyone's just going to give up on being careful and responsible, thus dramatically increasing your workload. Isn't the human race wonderful?
Matter manipulation. On Level 5, this power becomes extremely versatile. I can change my body structure to become very big, grow wings or turn the carbon dioxide I breathe out into fire. I can modify the air molecules around me so they don't let light past through, granting me invisibility. I could turn anything into food, or weapons. Heck, I could even modify the structure of my brain to grant me more neurones and learn things easier. Or rewire my enemies' brain connections and deprive them of dopamin and serotonin, turning them into depressed bunches of sadness that I can kill easily. I can even make air molecules vibrate in a certain pattern to play music out of nothing. And if there's a relation between time and matter, then I could modify time as well.

I've always liked the idea of superpowers that give a slight advantage rather than being completely overpowered. Accordingly, my superpower of choice would be the ability to slow down my perception of time, meaning that I would be able to make time feel as though it is passing faster than it actually is. Basically all this would give me is more time to think and really good reaction speeds, but I still like the idea.
I'd like to be able to control sound. Like, I can make it as loud or as quiet as I want. Small noises would no longer annoy me because I'd made them quieter. When my music isn't loud enough at full volume, I can make it louder. It would be very useful.
"Well, that's enough life for me today." Hmm, one I've always been interested in is elemental manipulation, similar to Last Airbender. It'd be nifty to be able to manipulate objects around you, although I suppose it wouldn't be very useful in day-to-day life.
One last final hurrah, like the final defiant scream of a dying man.
The ability to "transmute" matter at the subatomic level in an instant would be pretty swell. On a less "OP" note, being able to Sleep Spell yourself to sleep every night would be a godsend for an insomniac like me.
The ability to very easily manipulate anyone, no matter who, no matter their resistence, no matter how much they care, no matter whatever other factors.
Not necessarily mind control, just careful wording and knowing how to play someone like a puppet. I could easily go over the social scale, all the way over to politicians to a president of a known, large nation, and make the world go to shit without breaking a sweat. Assuming I'd have a reason to do that, which I don'tupupupupupupupupu
I want to have absolute immortality. By that, I mean nothing can kill me. The very definition of death would be removed from my person, of all timelines, of all dimensions, and from past, present and future. If you tried to go back in time and kill me before I was immortal, I'd just resurrect again, even though I didn't become immortal yet. On the downside, once the universe ends, I'll just be suffocating in a black unending vacuum until something happens, and I'd probably be the loneliest person to ever live, unless I found another immortal person. I probably wouldn't be able to enter the afterlife at all, if that exists.
please don't kill me if this isn't allowed here, or if this is the wrong forum to put this in i just wanted to talk about super powers
How to stop dying in a vortex forever - get the power of immortality at will, meaning you can turn it off if you want to die. Boom.
I'd like a cheaty power - anything I say will be the truth. But honestly I'd like time travel.

Teleportation. Late for class? Bam, you're there! Want to travel but you're poor? Pow, you're in Italy! Hungry, but you're comfortable in bed and you don't want to get up? Well... you still have to get up, but it's nowhere near as much effort!
