utter twaddle - teleoprtation [ the act thereof ] is boring - blink its over - flying is fun


Never saw "Jumpers" huh? Teleport into a bank, grab some cash, teleport out, spend it before they even know it's gone! What are they going to do? Arrest you? Teleport out of the cell. Flying may be more "fun", but the ability to be anywhere on the planet, instantly?

If nothing else, you could even make an honest living. When it absolutely positively must get there...NOW. You're the one to call.


And, I could still fly. Just get one of those wing suits, teleport high up, and let go...when done, teleport to the ground. No worries.

Invisebillity...having the power to have all my questions answered, by having the abillity to invite myself to all the secret inteligence meetings, freemason initiations, limitless access to the bedroom of JayZ and Byonce, Rihanna and Katy Perry ....the place to be in order to uncover their involvement into the illuminati conspiracy...of course.

super speed if it implyes youre reflexes can cope with that amount of speed. Invisiblity if not. Xray vision feels rather useless

Well, say you had x-ray vision and were the unscrupulous type. Casinos would hate you...


You could do that with superspeed too. But better yet, you don't even have to play. You could just zip around every hour or so and snag a couple of chips from all the tall stacks. You'd walk out with maybe $10,000 and no one would know what happened. Hell, you could hit four or five casinos that way and walk away with $100,000...in one night.

But that's just one possible application. With enough imagination, you could do almost anything with superspeed.

I'd go with super speed. Granted that I have super reflexes and am able to control it. I honestly don't see the fun in invisibility since like been said, it has less defenses. With super speed you could get your matrix on and dodge bullets and stuff. Plus when you're invisible and hold things, these things don't go invisible with you so any form of for example, a bank robbery would probably fail ..people would see bags of money floating in the air and I bet some of'em would try to take them from you lol. You could also be a real hero with your super speed and save a life or two. That's always a fun thing to do

sigh - please re-read my post - the ACT of teleportaoin is boring - i dont claim you could not have fun the results of teleport

but just flying is fun

but the main reason - TBH is i have a major issue with the concept of teleportation - conservation of energy

i a person teleports from the north pole to the equator - they not only need to provide the enerhy to make the " leap " but also INSTANTLY accelerate to the CORRECT velocity

its not just the energy requirement - its KNOWING what vector to apply on arrival

So you'd have to have super-spacial awareness (to know the wormholes) and be able to convert your mass to energy to traverse the given wormhole to your destination, if you want to explain it more. How is this much different than the conservation of energy problems inherent in the other powers?

And, like I said, you could STILL fly if you wanted, with this power...even if a series of jumps and falls, jumps and falls, etc.

You know, when people start talking about superpowers and "I wish I could (insert generic supernatural ability here)" I kinda laugh at them. They want invisibility, super speed, x ray vision, the power to fly, or the power to read minds or see the future or shot laser beams or whatever.

You know what I always ask for? The power to grant wishes.

Invisibility? Got it. Flying? No sweat. Teleportation? Done. Oh, and all those guys who got their awesome powers like reading minds or shapeshifting? Oops, your powers just got wished away. Oh, look, I just got them in your place. And - aw snap! I'm godlike now. Watch me part the seas and turn water to wine with just a couple wishes!

...Yep. Being able to grant wishes is pretty much the cheat code to superpowers.

You can't wish for more wishes....cardinal rule of wishing....


If we go that route, then I could just wish for all the powers of a 40th level D&D mage (includes wish spells and the ability to do antimagic effects, thus preventing you from wishing my powers away)

I said "the power to grant wishes". I didn't put a limit on it, so why would I ask for more wishes? You wish it, I can grant it. I wish it, I can grant it. I can grant you the ability to grant wishes, or I can wish away my ability to grant wishes. I can grant the entire human species the ability to grant wishes, wish for another planet, wish for it to remain unnoticed by this planet, and watch the human species ruin the world with wishes. That's why I would ask for that power, because the ability to grant wishes to anyone at any time any number of times is basically the ultimate super power. Imagine Fairly OddParents on steroids.

Your antimagic ability only works as long as you are aware of the magic being countered. If I attack without your knowledge, you wouldn't be fast enough. All I have to do is name you and utter the wish, and POOF! You've vanished from existence.

Not that I would. I think you'd actually be pretty fun to fool around with, what with your mage powers and my wish granting powers. It would be much less boring than killing off all of my competition. I'd probably enjoy the challenge, so long as I take certain precautions beforehand.

Sure I could. Wish myself to another galaxy, and then wish a black hole into being right where you are. You won't die, but you'll be incapacitated. Which means you can't do anything but suffer.

And that's if I'm keeping it simple.
