Time Control would be so broken of an ability, I would go with that. But that begs the question (I thought about this recently while watching Hot Tub Time Machine). If someone travels back in time and they stay in the same physical locations....wouldn't they be back millions/billions of miles away in space just floating around? The earth/solar system/galaxy is constantly moving. The earth revolves around the sun, the soloar system around the edge of the galaxy (even goes up and down), the galaxy threw space. So, if you went back in time say 6 months, you would appear where the earth was going to be in 6 months from where it would be. You would end up floating in space and die. LOL
Unless you can control space AND time, that one might not be a good choice....unless it means you can stop space/time so you can move around freely while every seems to be standing still. But if that is the case, I would take superspeed like the Flash because he moves at a speed where space/time stops for him. Quicksilver is too slow for my liking.
Maybe I would then take the ability to grow 40 feet....become the world "largest" adult entertainment star.

For money making ventures, Time control would take the cake (stock options, betting, etc) - plus it would be interesting to go back to view historical happenings (since I am a history buff). Other good money makers - healing factor: MMA (healing while in the fight and after - more fights per year); Telekinesis: Excellent for getting laid and great at Poker tourneys; Agility: MMA (more wins; bigger purse); Super strength: Great at construction sites and power lifting competitions; Energy blasts: screw the huge tunnel bore machines - your hired!; Super growth: The ultimate pornstar?
'I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.' — Ben Franklin

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.
