Your family is, presumably, Hominidae. The world's getting awfully crowded, food and space are getting scarce, stabbings are on the rise and not dying of injuries doesn't mean that you don't get injured or that you make a full recovery. Even severed pieces are immortal, and you can feel them being chewed by cannibals.

I can control the opacity of anything I can see.

However, once you stop seeing something you've altered the opacity of, it loses opacity altogether, and now that it's invisible you can't make it opaque again.

I can instantly count anything.

You always lose as white, and every Go tournament randomly assigns colors to players, so you have yet to win a tournament that had more than 8 players.

That's actually great. You have the superpower of "nope." This is an Immediate Interrupt power costing no action points, so can be used at any time, and is itself Uninterruptible. You can "nope" anything. Watcher in the Water grasping at your fellowship with tentacles? Nope! It no longer has tentacles, so all it can do is watch and sulk. Moon going to crash into the planet tonight? Nope! It's back in a stable 30-day orbit. Bad news from the clinic? Nope! All clear. Airplane hijacked for use as a missile? Nope! One of them is Daniel Briggs in disguise, and you're all saved. Nazgûl? Nope! Just some fool in a dirty grey cloak and a black mask, and he just tripped over his costume.

The drawback is that this power recharges when you level up, and only when you level up.

I can choose how other people will vote.

Your persuasive powers only work when you're trying to convince people to mug you for monies or otherwise abuse you. Like that song about sweet dreams.

I want the superpower of flawless beautiful skin that can even reflect bullets, swords, crushing objects and the lusty stares of people that are attracted to me.

This you get, but "reflecting" lusty stares causes the attracted people to get lusty stares back from you. This, they misinterpret.

I can use anything as a grenade. I mime pulling a pin from it, I throw it and 5 seconds after leaving my hand it explodes with energy M * 4184 * 0.18 / 0.397 J / g.

You become the weird grenade version of Gambit that you wish but then what you didn't know was that the objects would immediately return to your hands before exploding as a weird unforeseen side effect of your newly developed mutant powers.

I wish I was like Mystique and had blue skin and could turn into anybody.

You gain the super power to make delicious and nutritious foods--By the definitions of the pro-anorexia crowd. So they never eat your food because not only is it so low in calories and bland-tasting but since anorexics would prefer not to eat the food is only technically "delicious and nutritious."

I wish I had the knowledge to create an army of robotic girlfriends to be my warriors/slaves.

Oh, it also doesn’t have a hilt, making it impossible to grab without losing the offending fingers.

(I phrased my request awkwardly. I meant I wanted those supernatural stuffs. But good on you for exploiting it and ruining me totally ha-ha. :P)

They prove loyal and stalwart companions. But through your adventures they become weary of following you. Their loyalty erodes over the years, they plot to betray you and then do so without you ever knowing... because they were so loyal and friendly, right?

I wish I had poison lipsticks with a variety of dangerous effects. Applied by kissing. And I call myself a new super villainess name probably too.
