Well...healing powers are awesome. You can really cheat your way out of almost any physical confrontation with it, so if you end up being beaten by an attacker, you can still treat yourself. And besides...If I have healing powers, I can still use a rocket launcher to damage my opponent. XP
On a serious note, there so many things in our world capable of destroying things, so I would use one of them, depending on the situation, and keep my healing powers for bad situations.
I went with healing because that way i can fix my fucked up back/muscles so the next time i get dropped on my back i don't break it and be paralysed from the waist down since that was very close to happening last year September :/
im a rather violent person so i probably should go with healing so that i dont get myself in trouble (and so i can heal all the animals i happen across), but who can pass up punching "bad guys" in the face? i feel like i'd have too much fun with that
A doctor who can quickly fix issues from the common cold to broken bones to gunshot wounds and destructive illnesses without invasive surgery and without huge amounts of chemicals? I'd literally be one of a kind.
I'd be a millionaire, maybe even a billionaire, AND an asset to the world.
That's the real question. I thought immediately to attacking powers but after a bit if you're too tired to destroy how can you heal yourself? With healing powers you can fight how long and as you can then you can restore!
I imagine healing powers would have limits too, plus, with healing powers you'd be at a huge disadvantage in a fight with someone who has attacking powers, as they could severely injure or even kill you before you had a chance to heal - and you fighting back would not be very effective at all because they are stronger! I imagine if someone with attacking powers gets tired or hurt they need to rest the good old way in order to restore their powers - or wait for someone else to heal them
Dude, this question blew my mind. I picked healing because there is already so much violence and destruction in the world but not enough healing and growth. I feel like you would need healing powers more than destructive ones. But because the world is so violent, I would strongly want attack powers to protect myself and others from harm. Quite a conundrum!
As for myself, part of me would probably want attacking ones, because I am rather weak and can't do much by myself, so it would be nice to feel like I could strike back for once On the other hand... Healing is probably more useful in the long run, and a good ability to have. Probably healing then.
I'm sure most people would get much more use out of the healing/restoring powers, but there is an undeniable appeal in the attacking power, even if you wouldn't use it much. People pay to learn martial arts, but CPR and basic emergency medical courses are free (in my area, anyway). I certainly spent more time practicing marksmanship over then years then in CPR classes.
I wish I could have saved my dad when he was dying of a hospital infection, at least long enough to bring him home, but I couldn't. I wish could heal my brothers health problems, but I can't. I wish both of those things a lot more then I wish I could rain fiery but very carefully directed death down on Raqqa or go back in time and kill baby Hitler (or maybe just give him an arts scholarship and hope for the best), but, somehow, I think I would have chosen attacking powers when I was younger, and the only reason I wouldn't choose them now is I have an immediate need of healing power.
