I spend a lot of my time fantasizing over a variety scenarios that range from nice little time spenders to elaborate and slightly disturbing and something I often do fantasize about is a reoccurring scenario or dream rather of being able to manipulate the element of water. With this in mind I can entertain myself longer I can really recall. So I wanted to ask something I ask a lot of people around me;

If you had a super power, what would it be? Please, no cheap things like master of all the earth and heavens, elements, magic, space, time and your neighbors stuffed cat all at the same time.

Invisibility. It's a really cliched answer, I know, but it would be fascinating to listen to other people's conversations, about you and about others, you could see the whole picture for once. And obviously, you would be a great thief, and privy to many secrets, basically you could do anything and go anywhere you wanted.

There's a reason it's cliched. Invisibility would just be so damn useful.

teleport in an eyeblink. much quicker and more useful than flying, but probably not as fun, and of course, some kind of safeguard to prevent teleporting into the middle of something.

I also think teleportation would be useful. I'd like to be able to go anywhere I want without having to plan.

Flying might be nice, but I'm afraid of heights and in too many of my dreams I start falling when I fly.

Some times I'd like to be invisible.

Out of those I'd probably choose teleportation. I could probably manage feats similar to flying and invisibility with teleportation. :P

How about the ability to move at superlight speed, combined with the ability to phase through solid objects?

i still want to call that teleporting, but yeah, maybe like that... i was sort of envisoning going so fast i would just be at the destination, but... no, ok, not super speed, just teleporting, but with the ability to delay materialzation, so that would be like being able to phase through solid objects. i really like the idea of closing my eyes to blink and when i open them i'm somewhere else.

I'd like to be able to become like a ghost. I'd become invisible, able to go through anything, and fly or at least float. I could visit the center of the earth and go on through to the other side of the world.
