The Best Super Power there is...

Postby Transmogrifier » Tue Mar 22, 2005 5:35 pm

OK, I’ve given this a lot of thought. You know that old question: If you could have any super power, what would you choose? Many people say flying, Jason Giambi said he wished he had super strength (imagine that), others might choose speed.

These are all wrong. The answer is teleportation.

Think about it. I could commute to work in a flash. I could live in Italy and work in DC. I could beat up people—even those with super strength—by teleporting out of their grip, away from their punches and getting behind them. At the very least, I could avoid getting beat up by these super strong people. :-b

I could go into baseball games on my own (without tickets); I could go to Australia just for a day; I could visit my niece and be back by dinner; I'd never be stuck in traffic. The list is endless.

So, try to convince me I’m wrong. What super power is better than the ability to teleport yourself?

And I’m not talking about a Star Trek-like teleportation machine. I’m talking instant teleportation—anywhere, anytime.
I'm back. Sorta.

Nope, it's one or the other. And clearly, teleportation beats invisibility.

well then you would have to liken yourself to nihgtcrawler from the x men (although his power relys on him being able to see where he is teleporting too so as to not end up occupying the same space as another piece of matter. which would sort of limit your power of teleporting great distances since you would theoretically have to deal with the same hindrance). anyways he was quite easily stopped by jean grey through the use of telekenesis/psychic powers. so anyone that may have this super power automatically cancels out your ablity ot teleport away from them.

Yeah, but I wouldn't be purple, overly religious, and I wouldn't need to see where I was going. :-b

In my world, telekenesis would not stop me.

What are the practical implications, though?

The time/spacial benefits of teleportation greatly outweigh moving things with your mind.

You make a good and incredibly nerdy point, Trans. Me? I'd take the power of transfiguration. The ability to change your appearance at will is more my style. Especially in that Terminator 2 sort of a way.

ah but now your changing the rules. any super-power discusion has to follow standard comic rules otherwise there is no fair assessment of which powers may be better. :-D
