To be able to conjure anything I want to, anywhere I want to

Because it’s convenient and I could cause as much chaos as I’d like.

Teleportation because:

1. No more commuting costs 😋
2. Could go on holiday anywhere in the world instantly without needing to pay accommodation. Also, no more flights and airports 🤤
3. Could work, say, somewhere down south and with that fat, juicy salary exist like a pharaoh by living up north where everything is buckets cheaper 😋
4. Could stay in bed much longer in the mornings before work 🤤
5. If the weather’s ever crap where you are you can just teleport to wherever in the world it’s hot and sunny. That way you can permanently avoid winter or if you love winter then you can evade summer forever 😋
6. No more dull long journeys for things like shopping, appointments and so on, which would mean you have so much more free time for your other interests 🤤
7. You could play tricks on people and teleport to and from places where people can see you and enjoy their shocked and horrified expressions 😈
8. You could teleport into all sorts of places that are out of bounds to do lots of exploring, such as in Buckingham Palace, country estates, Area 51 and so on. If you have the appropriate equipment then you could even teleport to space, the moon, other planets 😋
9. If there’s a house you’re interested in buying or renting then forget having to book a viewing appointment with the estate agent. You can just teleport inside and check it out yourself, while giving the current inhabitants a big shock as a bonus! 😉

That’s all I have for now 🤤

The power to have students listen properly the first time I tell them something
The ability to fly and the ability to teleport.

Teleport so that I can go to whatever country I want we myself and people that I know

Fly because it's cool and because I've had dreams where I could fly.
The ability to control someone's movements is also good (as in I could make someone walk, talk dance etc). But the other two are the main ones5
Ability to shapeshift for a very long time into an animal, artwork, tree, flower, mythical creature, aircraft, motor vehicles, speedboat, variety of people, furniture, electronic item, blend into the background well enough to become invisible to the eyes of people & cctv cameras.

Great potential for disguise and being able to disappear without a trace.

That's a good superpower as well

These are both quite sinister responses! :K: Which is great because my answer (always controversial) is the ability to time travel. I'd mainly use that superpower to spy on people :biggrin:
I already have a superpower albeit a rubbish one. I can make onions grow even if I put them in the fridge or the dark :ninjagirl:

Who needs invisibility when you can make your food sprout :/
Teleportation sounds cool :biggrin: Though super-intelligence wouldn't go amiss either.
Mind control
Mind control sounds good too.

Would first go to earlier in 2023 and stop someone from making a mistake that they regret.

Ohhh we like this one! Maybe slightly less chaos though...

Start with 5000 squirrels armed with swords and see what happens, can't go to wrong right?
Time travel sounds cool! But I'd pair it with super-intelligence for best results :biggrin:
