Superpower: the ability to control sea creatures

Use: Put Sea World (etc.) out of business with a traveling sea-creature variety show. (Concession and gift stands will be operated by otters, penguins, dolphins, and other adorable critters.)

Huzzah! ;D

Superpower: You have super strength, but only between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. (local time; if you can 'follow the sun' quickly enough, you can keep the power).

Call this the "What if Superman's Sun-based power required a more precise degree of exposure?" experiment.

Enter the Olympics weightlifting competition, but make sure you bribe the officials so it falls at the right time.

(~1 day seems reasonable for a waiting period, yes?)

Both fine ideas. I'm going to give this to Tim4488 for the bragging-rights potential, but Mystify gets an honorable mention because of the perfect combination of his idea with Tim's (i.e., using your super-strength job to fund your Olympic bribing account).

Find a werewolf. Capture them when human. build up your werewolf collection as much as possible.
during the full moon, you unleash the werewolves to terrorize a town or otherwise do your dirty work. Meanwhile, you fly in the air, safe from being werewolfed to death. After the full moon passes, all of the werewolves will collapse on the ground, so they can awake in the morning naked and confused. Since you can follow them while they are rampaging, you know where they are and can recapture them at this time.

Begin an exotic tourism business and make sure you add in your commercials, "You go when you need to go!"
