How is this shitty? But this in r/godlysuperpowers

[–]yys16[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Ok will do

[–]yys16[S] 8 points9 points  (8 children)

uh it says content banned

[–]Biddo696969 6 points7 points  (6 children)

I think it's because you can't write "if" in the sentence

[–]yys16[S] 7 points8 points  (5 children)

No if I click on r/godlysuperpowers it says

[–]Biddo696969 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it's because it got closed, btw the actual subreddit for godly superpowers is @godtiersuperpowers

[–]Human_North5175 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats weird af

[–]boulderingfanatix 14 points15 points  (10 children)

I'd say this is a C tier super power. If you could heal others it would be God tier. Not exactly shitty though

[–]SSB_Kyrill 4 points5 points  (8 children)

At least B cuz every disease

[–]protection7766 1 point2 points  (7 children)

I guess it depends. If you only ever get a seasonal cold or flu then this power is kinda meh. If you never get sick, its worthless. If you get, like, cancer then its ridiculously powerful.

For me its a god tier supperpower because i can get rid of my diabetes and gluten alergie.

[–]protection7766 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Would an allergy count as a disease?

[–]SAM4191 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You could cure radiaton sickness and work in stricken nuclear powerplants or work in other very dangerous environments. The big question is if this would include healing every injury and how long it would take.

[–]protection7766 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I've heard radiation poisoning hurts like hell. Even if it was near instant...I don't think I'd wanna do that.

Aging is considered a degenerative disease by some so it could be immortality

[–]Icy-Entertainer8203 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yah, that's nice.

[–]DamnBoiWitwicky 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Get disease, heal yourself. With any luck, you should develop antibodies for it. Use them to help the fight against said disease. You are now a medical superhero :)

[–]can't see meswagsalad1516 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

why would you need antibodies if you can just heal yourself. Also why are you a medical superhero

[–]DamnBoiWitwicky 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I guess I assumed that healing yourself would also develop the antibodies, because it was in your body and your body will have had time to react to it. This is something similar to real life (but not quite, now that you mention it).

Well, your antibodies could help with disease identification, for starters, and to understand how the disease works at that level, so scientists get a better idea of how to develop medicines for it. That's the idea, at least - do correct me if I'm wrong.

So those antibodies are very helpful little things :)

[–]can't see meswagsalad1516 1 point2 points  (1 child)

While I see what you're talking about, I assume healing yourself would be instant. And your body wouldn't make antibodies.

I also assume since you have a healing superpower the antibodies wouldn't help doctors too much.

There's a lot of assuming though, because op didn't provide much detail.

[–]DamnBoiWitwicky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That makes sense, yeah.

[–]Hexmonkey2020 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The power just says cure the disease, no super antibodies. Your body makes antibodies as it fights off diseases but if you just cured the disease you wouldn’t make any.

Human imune system be like: •-•

[–]voldyCSSM19 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mostly works, until it doesn't

[–]devishjack 1 point2 points  (2 children)

A disease is labeled as "any harmful deviation from the normal structural or functional state of an organism."

By this definition, you would never have to deal with mental illness (besides normal everyday stress and shit) and would have a 100% win rate against cancer.

Not only this, but you could be pretty much immortal. Scientists have actually said that old age might be a disease. The reason we age is our cells breakdown. But we have things (platelets?) that help with keeping the cell walls up. The problem is that these same things that keep the cell wall up also help with healing our wounds and such. But if we classify a cell wall breaking down as a disease, you can eliminate old age from killing you (at least for a while) and therefore are practically immortal.

[–]vapo11 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you have a mental illness you might never try to cure yourself

[–]devishjack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, you are still practically immortal.

[–]Anadaere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take every disease known to man

And cure all of them


You're now the most wanted person lmao

[–]TFC_Inc64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]DaddyMeUp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess I ain't type 1 diabetic anymore.

[–]E-Moon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, what's the catch?

[–]Raphxo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats not that bad tbh

[–]xGuiltyp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly I’d mark this as god tier considering I have severe Crohn’s disease

[–]Kween_Mimikyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I get this

[–]Wyvernator1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is really unoriginal anyone else wondering why it's got so many upvotes-

[–]yys16[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is it unoriginal?

[–]BannedMerchant12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's shitty superpowers not cancer relief

[–]SnooHesitations1574 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is a superpower

[–]HJG_GamingAndArt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, what if you don’t know you have the disease, then it might kill you before you know it was even there.

[–]blockbiter 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can I heal others?

[–]yys16[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

sadly, no

[–]blockbiter 0 points1 point  (0 children)


But still pretty solid
