If it was the TNG era, I could see myself working on a freighter or something, and visiting different planets that way. It wouldn't be the most glamorous way to travel the stars but I could probably do it. I don't think I am Starfleet material, lol.
I don't think I would like the ENT era. Space travel was still rare and usually for exclusively trained personnel, so its unlikely I could even go into space in that time. Remember Archer picked all the best and brightest for his crew from amongst all of planet Earth. I don't think there were many other starships in service at that time and if there were, their crews would also be hand-picked cream of the crop.
DC Universe ONLY if I got a superpower or two. Being a normal person in that universe is a quick way to end up dead.
No superhero universe unless I were to somehow gain super powers by choosing that world. If that were the case I'd probably pick that.
I'm too old to think about learning thinfgs over...at least not willingly...so Star Wars or Star Trek would have the same thing for me...if I could somehow learn stuff fast, I'd pick Star Wars fisrt, only because I could be a freighter captain like Han Solo. I say that because I've been in the military for 23 years....I would not fit into Starfleet easily. Well, maybe I could if it were the Kirk era.
A lord of the rings type universe is highly appealing though. I'd be running the place inside of a few years.
After all, if it is the Star Trek universe, being able to predict things like Kirk, the Guardian of Forever, the arrival of the Q, the Iconians, Section 31, the Dominion War, and the Borg, I'm fairly certain I could make a very nice life for myself.
Ok would anyone pick the Marvel Universe if you had a pick of the following powers?
1. Spiderman type powers.
2. Hulk type powers
3. Captain American type powers
4. Ironman type powers.
5. You chould join Shield
6. You would get a random good mutant power
7. You would be reborn as an Asgardian.
8. You could gain Dr. Strange type powers
Would that help you pick that gate?
The DC one I did add you might gain powers from Exobites, but it would be a totally random type power, so you couldn't pick what you wanted.
I would've had the Marvel Universe as a back up regardless of powers. I'd be happy to have no powers at all, if I was guaranteed to have Angelica Jones aka Firestar as a girlfriend... I had a mahoosive crush on her when I was a child
I chose the Trek universe as it was the one I would be most easily be able to fit into and make a decent living
