Regarding nukes, i'll try to convince Kim Jong Un that i'm going to use his nukes to fake an american nuclear attack on its own land. When in reality, i'll sneak the nukes in the rocket. They sure won't blow up during launch, that's for sure.
I would choose mind control because then i could control everyone else. Use all of their powers to my advantage. So basically, they would all be at my disposal and so would their powers. Almost the same as having all those powers ;)
