    Can't get a working submarine?
    I thought that was just us.

    Don't, like, half of Weapon X or Weapon K or whatever teleport? Along with every villain in the 90s? (Or at least know a teleporter?)

    I think the West Edmonton Mall sent their 4 submarines to the scrap heap 2 years ago.

    Weapon K? You mean the secret Department K project? I know Tigerstryke's electro-magnetic suit was based on Guardian's suit so I figure he can teleport.
    Not sure about the other members of Department K / Weapon PRIME. It's one thing to teleport yourself and another person but I don't think Guardian, or Vindicator, or TigerStryke can teleport an 85 story building from Toronto to Ottawa.

    I don't really tend to count what Mac does as teleportation...since he has little-to-no control over where he ends up. He just stops rotating within the Earth's atmosphere, that's all.

    You know, I think I did mean Department K.

    Mac's power is basically just going really, really fast. Not quite teleportation.

    I'd still love to see him try it on and 85-storey building.

    Disagree. He's not going fast, he isn't going at all. Everything else is going. He actually is going so slow as to be stopped.

    Hence the phrase 'basically'.

    Hm. Okay, I'll give you points for that one.

    Basically I should have suggested someone who can actually teleport like Shaman, Talisman, Nemesis, Witchfire, Manikin/Highbrow or Pathway.

    I think Steven Seagle retconned their location from Toronto to Ottawa but I do like Flightpath's answer that the Canadian government likes to waste money and built a second Dept H building in Ottawa. I do know the Toronto building had 85 floors. The Ottawa building had at least 66 floors because the Director resided on the 66th floor. Maybe a certain Loki knows the answer.

    Y'know, I don't think of Shaman as a teleporter, but you're absolutely right - he can.

    Maybe they only had 47 floors, but they called it the 66th because Kool-Aid Man is red.
    Hmm... 66th floor? Do you suppose they went with that because the 666th floor would be too ridiculous?

    I also don't think as Pathway as a "teleporter" (i.e. to teleport anywhere on Earth), but rather as a dimensional transporter. Doesn't she open portal to dimension? To me, Alpha Flight's teleporter is Manikin's Highbrow.

    I agree about Pathway, too; but technically she can.

    Although, to be fair to Chris, he didn't call any of those people teleporters; just said they can teleport.

    Y'know, I find that interesting.

    As I ponder this statement, something comes to mind...

    ...don't you have to BE a teleporter, in order to teleport? (Not be teleported by somebody else, but teleport yourself)

    Or, don't you have to BE a runner, in order to run?

    I could go on, but won't.

    LM, I know you were just clarifying what Chris did and did not say. I'm just thinking out loud; that the very act of teleporting makes one a teleporter (even if only a one-time one).

    I would say absolutely not. I am capable of running for a short distance (and I do mean SHORT distance), but I by no means would ever call myself a "runner", especially to my friends that train for the Boston Marathon.

    Yes, as Ahab is getting at - being a runner or a teleporter means it's something you do habitually; something you do enough that it, in part at least, defines you. Something you do occasionally, or just once, or are simply capable of (I'd say) doesn't make you a that-thinger.

    Ah, i see. You all are thinking of the word "teleporter" as a Title. I'm thinking of it merely as in, teleport is a verb, therefore when you teleport you are a teleporter.

    And again, by my simplistic way of thinking, when i am running, I am a runner. The very act of doing something, means that I am a person who does that thing (as I am doing it).

    Apologies if i sidetracked anyone with my logic. My ADD really does get me fixated on some weird stuff at times.
