If you could choose one superpower, which would you like to have? Why? What would life be like?

I have always dreamt about being able to fly or being invisible and I'm not sure which one would I choose, however I would never ever want to be immortal as I consider it to be a kind of nightmare. I don't mind long life but interminable life is totally senseless, as we would stop trying to do anything which has any meaning cause we would have a lot of time for it... Infinity, actually. And, another thing, we all dream about some kind of superpower, but isn't it because of our need to be unique? We want to be like a Marvel hero, the only person in the world being able to fly or being invisible, rather than considering giving a specific superpower to everyone. It would be nice, of course, to be able to fly, but it won't be actually nothing special if everybody can do that, will it?

In my view, if I had to choose one superpower I would definitely take teletransportation, that is, the power of transfering matter from one point to another instantly. It could be used with items so that you could order your room just by thinking, but also with oneself, so that you would be able to travel without wasting time in airports. I think this superpower would be more efficient than superspeed since no collapse between speeders would take place. On the other hand, we must consider this superpower as fatal when used with dark purposes. Vault, secure rooms, prisons...they would become things of the past.

In my opinion, we don't need super-powers because, if we do the things right (practice sports, improve languages, study) we get some super-skills and this is good for us in the same way. The super-power of immortality or fly might be dangerous as the text show

I would really like to travel in time. I've always wanted to know how people lived in the ancient Greece, see the dinosaurs or even now what's going to happen in the future.
I could eliminate my past mistakes... The possibilities are endless.

I'd like to fly .. Because flying is very nice specially when you can fly fast so you have two superpowers in one ... I think if we all could be able to fly, cities will be like Hives of bees because if it isn't protected well it will be attacked easily so I think we'll follow the bees steps ...
