It's an intriguing question to ask yourself. If you woke up one day and found out you suddenly had Super Powers (let's say Super Strength or near Immortal Regenerative Capabilities) What would you do with your new found abilities? Would you merely go about your life and pretend that everything is the same as it was before you got them, Or would you choose to do Extraordinary things?
Would you try to make the world a better place? Perhaps fighting evil in the world or in your neighborhood? It seems there is So Much Evil in the World nowadays that we could sure use a Hero to come along and set things Right. Would you even have time in your busy life to be a Hero? Or would your Job, Family Responsibilities or Schooling take priority?
Then, there is the flip side... What if you were a Villain? Would you seek out revenge for all the Bullies who ever picked on you in School? Would you march into the office and lift your Boss off the ground by their throat? Would you show that guy who cut you off in traffic what an economy sized can of Whup-ass looks like? Would you begin plans for World Domination?
I guess It's really a matter of who you are to begin with. The person you are now affects what you would choose if you suddenly had Super Powers.
