Out of all of Danny's unique and interesting ghost-powers, which among them is your most/least favorite?
Ooh, this is really hard. There are a lot of reasons to like different powers he has. Some are more effective, some look cooler, some are powers I wish I had. It’s also hard to say I dislike any of his powers, so picking a least favorite is also tricky.
I’m tempted to say the cryokinesis is my least favorite because one of the main reasons it was introduced was to connect Danny to the Far Frozen and, as a result, retcon ghosts as spirits of the dead. At the same time, though, it is a really cool power that Danny uses in some really creative ways. It’s hard to actually not like it.
I guess when I really think about it, I’d have to say his “increased speed and agility” are my least favorite. Not that those aren’t good abilities, but for Danny, they’re pretty useless. Being faster and more agile doesn’t make him that much better at dodging attacks. He gets hit all the time anyway. Both powers also become kinda pointless when he can turn intangible and fly. He’s faster when flying than he is when running anyway, and he has more success avoiding attacks by turning intangible than by just dodging anyway. I suppose some could say this doesn’t count, but eh.
As for my favorite, I guess the ghostly wail is the best in terms of both uniqueness and effectiveness, but it’s also incredibly destructive, can usually only be used once or twice at a time before draining Danny completely, and it doesn’t have the most pleasant roots, making it less fun to watch.
I think I’m gonna go with the ghost ray/ectoblasts. It’s the ability Danny uses probably the most and in some of the most creative ways. He does things like combine it with other abilities, change the shape and power of it, send out small bursts or constant streams. The ghost stinger is probably just a variation of this, too.
Plus, I find it kind of surprising how uncommon shooting beams of energy from the hands is among superheroes. It seems really useful because it’s like a weapon you always have and doesn’t get in the way very easily. It’s just like throwing explosive punches from a far distance. Very cool.
