    Default Invisibility vs X-Ray vision

    Which is the more useful power? Cooler power? Which one would you take?

    Depends. Will I be able to see while invisible?

    Will I be able to control the degrees of X-ray vision and not give people cancer by looking at them?

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes. Think like Superman's X-Ray vision.

    Invisibility, then. But it's not an easy choice. There are many times where I wish I could just disappear.

    Tough choice. But I'd choose invisibility if I can't increase my X-Ray vision to cause cancer in my enemies, and bears. Mostly bears.

    Gotta be invisibility.
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    Batman Begins taught me that invisibility is a matter of patience and agility. You can work on both of those. However you cannot train your eyes to get X-Ray Vision, so I take X-Ray Vision (Plus it's easier to peek in the girls' changing room )

    Invisibility. X-ray vision requires wisdom to know when not to use it, and there are somethings in life I would rather not see.

    Assuming invisibility only applies to you, and not objects being worn or held, I'd have to go with X-Ray Vision.

    If, on the other hand, invisibility does apply to objects being worn or held, I'd have to choose invisibility.

    I see, so it's not X-ray vision then? :P

    Seriously though, Ultra Boy's name for the ability, Penetra-Vision, describes what it does way better.

    Too bad it sounds like something from a bad late-night soft-core porn film.

    Good kind of invisibility, applies to clothes and objects held, assuming they're small.

    Invisibility without the need to be naked AND I can keep a small weapon on me? I've changed my mind.

    So, is this true "Invisibility" (as in you can't be seen at all) or Is It what I like to call "Predator" style invisibility where you can be seen If someone focuses hard enough on you?
