After watching a certain unnamed movie, my daughter and I got on the discussion of superpowers. If you had the choice, would you rather be able to A) be able to become invisible whenever you wished? (not stuck being invisible all of the time or B) be able to teleport from place to place as quickly and easily as Samantha from Bewitched?
Personally, I would choose B. Imagine the possibilities! My husband gave this reason for being invisible- so that you could hear what people REALLY thought about you.
Teleportation gets my vote for obvious reasons
But I do remember the times when invisibility would have been hands down first - just to be able to spend some time in girls locker room
But just remember - that means no more cars
You would more likely go blind or get hairy palms...so I go for teleportation as I could teleport in and out of the girls locker room and get a quick look and then be on my merry way!
Probably still go blind and get hairy palms, but hey at least I'd travel!
Ha Ha of course!
The fantasy always beats reality
Teleportation. When do we get that again?
Wouldn't the appropriate answer then be Invisibility. Teleportation will happen one day. Haven't some scientists from Stanford or something teleported atoms? It's only a matter of time before you can go where ever you like, it may be 50 years, but it will happen.
I vote for invisibility.
I meant the fantasy of the girl's locker room LOL - The reality will never live up to the fantasy.
And I sure hope teleportation will happen one day.
they didnt teleport atoms..they duplicated them...lol its retarded..and i think its possible to have mutations in ur dna that can allow u to be invisible..or let u teleport from a place to another..but we need to find the right mutation in the dna to do so..and that will take over hundreds of years or mutations to do that...but who knows..it may have already have happened and the person that has the mutation is being quiet..lol
Like when you are on the back seat of the bus maybe.
I would have to go with invisibility. Your never seen. Yeah it would be great to teleport but Invisibility, you could still travel for free, plane's, train's, automobiles....Just imagine going to Hollywood, sitting next to Al Pacino, or Robin Williams, Robert Deniro....it would be awesome. Countless amounts of illegal oppurtunities.....
Invisibility is my vote.
LOL - But they would never know you were there - how much fun would that be? If you could teleport, you could work in London, party in Paris and live in South America.
My point exactly. The possibilities- Wow! No job opportunity be off limits, all worldwide events would be open to you, etc. It would be freaking awesome!
And if you wanted, illegal opportunities would also be plentiful. Go to stores or anywhere else when closed and get anything you want, stay places for free, set people up, my gosh, it goes on and on.
Them not knowing you were there would be awesome anyway, christ your sitting next to oscar winners....however there's endless possibilites with celeb's, you could always extort one of them...imagine the secrets you would hear.....damnnnn...
Wither which way, if I had either ability, work? screw work? I have a super power...I would pretend but that's it....
I didn't read the entire forum, but mmmmmaaaaaannnnn! teleport for sure, then I could go to space and sh**.
telaport, simply if you dont want to be seen,poof,your gone,but im wondering now if it has to make noise. if its quite,the you can still silenly go where ever you want to
plus if your invisable,how could you fall in love, youd never be seen, youd have to make your self noticed, and puor paint all over yourself,-or-,what if you didnt want to be seen? youd get covered in dirt,your feet would always be dirty,its realy hard to be perfectly silent, blah blah blah.or maybe you cant be touched,youd have to specify.
Actually, the original conditions were that you could be invisible at will and reappear whenever you wanted. So this wouldn't be a problem, But it is an interesting argument against invisibility if you had to stay that way.
Harry Potter can do both! Sometimes it is essential that he be under his invisibility cloak, at other times he needs to "apparate", which sounds like another name for teleporting. On the grounds that, at least in the later books, he does more of the latter than the former, it would appear that apparating is a more useful skill.
teleporting for me. could i zoom from one time line to another and win the lottery or something ??
easy money that would be nice. De niro can sit on his own.
Seeing as how I'm a travel junkie I vote for teleportation. Sure you could sneak on flights if you were invisible, but then you'd still be stuck on an airplane for hours. Teleporting gets you there instantly. I fantasize about teleporting all the time. Especially when I'm getting ready for an 18 hour flight.
I'd choose teleportation, but I'd probably be like Barkley in Star Trek the Next Generation and develop a psychosis against it.
I'd go for teleportation. No traffic jams, no fuel required, no exhausting fumes. Fast, safe, convenient
So, it looks like teleporting is kicking invisibility's butt.
Hey not so fast! My vote is for invisibility!
I think it would be a ton of fun to be invisible. Thing of the problems it would solve...
You could spy on countries much more easily...
You could be a better crime-solver/crime-stopper by being there to actually witness it...
You could be the bodyguard for someone and be super-incognito!
I mean, the benefits are endless!
Teleporting would be best. It is as good as being invisible, but yet adds more by being able to instantly move from place to place.
What he said. But darkside - don't take too long. We have to decide tomorrow
This is a tough question.
I've seen Jumper and there was a limit to his ability to teleport, he could only jump to places he had either been to before, or that he could see (but not as in see on television or in a photo).
I'm going to have to have a think on this one.
I asked my wife the question, and she said "teleporting".
So I'll have to go with "invisibility".
We'd kick some serious butt with two super powers in the family.
Otherwise I think I'd have gone with teleporting as well.
As reluctant as that vote was, I'll take it darkside!
So that's pretty much TWO votes for invisibility and EVERYONE else for teleporting?
Hey, I voted for invisibility way back when this thread was started, so THREE.
I would love to teleport! Oooh, the possibilities would be endless with this super power.
So when do we get the teleporting then?
I think I'll just buy the word "teleport" for a couple bucks on that website.
I'd be happy with just teleportation.
Some people are never satisfied.
Three, my apologies for missing it!
So now it's three vs. the rest?...
My kids and I vote for teleporting. Places to go... people to see...
here goes vote for teleportig again..being completely invsible to others makes you nonexistent in the world..
I guess teleporting - I can be anywhere and everywhere and I can fulfill my childhood dream of "visiting every country in the world"
Teleporting, please. I don't like driving.
Invisibility for me. I'd steal money from bad people and look at naked ladies whenever I want. Teleportation would change my life too drastically to really be able to conceive.
At least with invisibility you could still have a normal life.
I'd choose Teleporting, saves on gas prices and you get to be where ever you want when you want
But why do you need to save on gas? You could always hop into your neighbour's car or even drive someone's car without getting caught if you were invisible.
I need aircraft to get to all the people *I* love - even being invisible, I would still have to survive the 22 hours flying time - without snacks and drinks.
Teleportation is more useful - that way you can go anywhere and get out of the way when you need to get out of a mess. With invisibility, you're liable to just get run over by someone who didn't eben know you were there.
Well before I saw the movie Jumper, I would have said invisibility. But now I say the ability to teleport. because you could just disappear by going somewhere else.
Everybody here wants to have the fantasy of invisibility fulfilled for mostly the voyeur aspect, but we all really probably want the teleportation just for the chance to visit anywhere at anytime with no regard for gasoline prices.
The best superpower would be super sense, feral instinct, and the ability to heal--i.e., wolverine!!!
Wolverine's powers are cool, but can you really take him serious with that hair dew?
Oh, my votes for teleportation.
yeah his hair IS a little out of control...put his powers are still a great combo.
I'd go with Teleportation, I've liked that idea ever since seeing "Jumper"
Just think, you'd be able to see everything you wanted to ever see in this world in under one day!
I would be invisible, you will get away with loads more things, but it would depend who else could have the same choice or if anyone else knew you had this power.
I cannot believe this thread is still going. It has been like six months already.
Teleport all the way! nanoo nanoooooooo.
I would have picked X-Ray Vision had it been one of the choices, but darn!
I think I'll go for Teleportation. It seems to be Super-Power-ish, not to mention more lucrative in terms of business.
Came across this article and poll about desired super powers and remembered this thread. With the choices given in the poll, I chose healing super powers.

i dont know why people...are choosing teleport but I see invisibilty as much more advantage...
Im sure it will do me more good than teleportation...

If you could choose only one wish, which would you pick, and why?
by Debbie Roberts 11 years ago
If you could have any ''super power'', what would you like it to be?I would like to be able to function without the need to sleep.
by Taylorwise 12 years ago
Which superpower would you rather have? The ability to fly or the ability to be invisible? And why?
by Ricksen Surya Winardhi 10 years ago
If you find a ring that can grant you invisibility when you wear it, what will you do?This ring is mentioned by Plato in his book Republic as the Ring of Gyges. Will you use the ring for yourself, leave the ring, or destroy the ring? If you use it yourself, how confident are you that you will use...

If you could have any powers imaginable what would they be?
