But if it's on the level of heating up water for bathing, charging your phone or bending spoons... Wouldn't make much of a difference...

In terms of difference in abilities, humans are already not equal as they are. When we also put artificial powers into play (like money, or societal status), then the differences increase.
Looking at it this way, it's not like superpower would create that much of an unbalance, compared to what already happens in the real world. The moment they get normalized, they wouldn't be "super" anymore.
However, people being able to do more stuff than what we currently can would probably translate in a slightly easier day-to-day life for most people.
Of course, if we put this thought to the extreme and give someone the superpower of creating nukes, then we would go towards apocalypse pretty fast. So, for this question to work, we have to first imagine that nobody would get any power that could easily bring about the end of the world.

I actually like this take, but I didn't read it before voting The world would get worse.
Personally I think boku no hero academia gets it right (with the backstory).

The world would become a huge mess and the survival of fittest would be the only rule. Because other rules would be constantly changing along with the balance of power and the rulers of course.
If the powers would be hereditary than it would only lead discrimination and outright slavery.
If they would be given random, than the first ones to stand at top would regulate the human rights. And what a surprise, being strong is no more cool.
I think we are created this weak and fragile for a reason.

That's at least what the manga taught anyway and I appreciate it but when it comes to if it would make the world better or worse, it depends a lot on values. The world would certainly be much more chaotic, which for most people would be worse, which probably includes many of you. The only people who would actually like it better are those bored with the mundane real world like me and that's why I voted that the world would get better, just my opinion. Both order and chaos are very valid values.

If slavery ,discrimination by race and/or status already exists, I think there might be even crueler ways of slavery and more obvious discrimination if they existed. But if you've ever heard of death squads, racial purges (like the one otomans did) or what happened in the Congo using inhuman ways to enslave a country under one person you'll understand how difficult it is for things to get worse and how little Belgium cares and does to correct wrongdoings. Just as many other recent historical examples don't care for what they did.
Probably there would be many cases in which for some, life would be the same . But there would also be concentration camps for useful powers , genocides ... All of this stuff already happens 🙄 .
Pd.: Dam, I missed my own poll .
(Thanks for putting it up).
