If you had the Power, would you use it for good?

If you were to become a Power Ranger (non-zordon era) would you stay a good guy? Would you use the power for self gain? If you were the leader would you sacrifice your self for the team?



For me if I was given the Power I'd go rouge like Marrick only helping the team when they really needed it, more or less fighting by myself.
I don't know if I'd use the power for my own gain I'm not that evil yet.
If I was a leader I'd more or less use my team, as in if a monster was overpowering the team, I'd most likely would use my team as a shield letting some of the team go down for the greater good, ok maybe I am that evil :169:

Does killing criminals count as good or bad?

Saving criminals from good people is one thing, but killing them makes you just as bad as they are.

Back on topic, I would definitely use the power for good, not evil. Plus you don't exactly have to have power from Power Rangers or Super Sentai, but there are other ways of having it, such as magic, etc.

Have you learned nothing from The Dark Knight?

By basic super hero standards killing a villain is bad. Unless there about to destroy the world and/or universe. It's the heroes job to stop the villains not be there judge or executioner.

Any jackass can use power to be selfish and hurt people.

I would want to use them for good because to me, that's the whole damn point. I'd basically want to honor everything these fictional heroes ever taught me about what it actually means to have such power.

It's not about being a "badass" or getting your jolly's off . It's about having the guts to think beyond yourself.

I'm talking about mass killing criminals.Not out of self-defense but because they're evil.Allowing criminals to almost ruin the world and then just come in when they almost do is bad.

Were you replying to me? If so, then I agree with you there. I mean to hurt them if they first attacked you, being specific.

Wow Light! your Just as bad as they are for killing them. I'd just do a lot of bone breaking, it gets the message across just as fine.

Personally, Light Yagami went insane with the whole criminal killing but if he had not gone insane, he could've built a pretty good world.

And that makes you awesome in my book for following morals, where I'm from everything's not black and white but shades of grey. I'm more of an Anti-hero but I'd always fight for the good of the people.

Also I don't think taking out corrupt cops and politicians (not killing) is not a misuse of power

I'd use them and my image for profit, like Ozymandias. Toys, comic books, feature films...

Actually back this time
It's 2011, the age of facebook and twitter. I'd sit at home and brag about how I could do awesome things, if I wanted. I'd generally lack motivation to do anything except post status updates that would get plenty of likes.

Even if you have powers that doesn't give you the right to take lives. Your just one person it's not your place to decide who lives and who dies. There have been plenty of villain out there who have turned to good eventually both in the comics and the real world. They would of never had that chance if they were killed right away.

There always going to attack you. You're trying to stop there plans. If it was ok to do that then Batman would of killed Joker long ago, Superman would of killed Lex in a second, Spiderman would of killed Green Gob....wait, that's a bad example.

Let's start this up again shall we?
Say you were given powers as part of a team and the person chosen to be leader is not as experienced (ala Casey from jungle Fury) would you still follow their orders or question their every move as leader, belittling their every command and taking matters into your on hands?

1st question:
I would become a super villain faster than Lex could spend a buck.

2nd question:
If I thought they were a poor leader, I would call them on it. If it came to a point where i had to follow them without question or go on my own, I would leave and do things my own way.
 

G.K.

I'd say weather or not they deserve the chance to become good people depends upon their actions prior. If a small time thief decides he wants to go straight then more power to him. A rapist however should be summarily executed without a second thought.


as far as the questions go

Question #1 - I'd definitely want to use the power for good. Though i'd also end up find some means of using it to isolate myself from society. These two factors are bound to clash at some point or another.

Question #2 - I'd try to help them for sure. I'm no leader so I can't see myself questioning their actions unless they do something extreme.

To answer the 2nd question my self I'd keep questioning the leader for the better of my team. But as said before I'd probably work alone as I'd rather take the evil on myself instead of someone more inexperienced than myself risking their life, doesn't mean I wouldn't be able to make hard choices like sacrificing myself or someone on the team in a no win situation to save the rest of a team or civilians

Power Ranger abilities come as a team thing (unless you're lucky enough to be a sixth or extra), so turning against your team is kind of dumb. Plus, you'd have to wear spandex, regardless of which side you're on. That alone would keep me on the good side. No one will take a bad guy in spandex seriously.

In the more general scope of "super powers bestowed on unwitting mortal", I think I would be wandering in terms of morality. Never outright evil or murderous, but very passionate or cold-hearted depending on the moment.
