I'm not sure if it's THAT useful a subcategory. If you are thinking in terms of "well, I need a teleport for this story, who can I use?"... then it would be too restrictive; we have a bunch of devisors who have teleporting devises, such as Visio. We have also seen mages like Fey do teleport-like effects. And then there are warpers like Cheese, who can warp his hand some distance from his body... does it count as a teleport? What about Regina Lambert, who can split in two and choose in which of the two locations to reintegrate -- and carry stuff with her? What is her power anyway (the Wiki lists it as manifestor, but I don't think it's a good fit)?

I think that when "ways to cause effect X" comes up, there is always a spell or an invention for that. Fey can cast a spell that works like a teleport, but the telportation itself is not her power; magic is.

Cheese seems to be colocating two otherwise separate areas and poking his hand through. If it closed off and left his hand behind in the other location, I'd consider that a teleport.

Regina Lambert: does she choose the body that she relocates to, or is that from a micro-scene? There does seem to be a manifesting effect because there's a new object brought into existence, but it probably isn't that simple. If it weren't for the "no time travel" rule, I'd wonder if she isn't pulling an instance of herself out of her personal timeline. ( She's also my top candidate for Lady Jettatura's agent, but that's just my fan theory. )

Regina used this trick of her power back in "Angel in Dickinson" to teleport a McGuffin from one place to another -- although it's not really clear if she can always choose which way she will be reintegrated or if she just lucked out in a 50/50 chance.
But the point is: since she can take stuff with her, it's a kinda-sorta teleport effect, instead of her just dismissing a "copy" and reintegrating her memories, Jade-like.

It would probably be good to know how that works in case she ever shows back up, or someone wants to develop a character along similar lines.

I can still see it as a useful category once it's populated. Do you see it working as a subcategory of "Powers"?

"Shortcut" isn't a Teleporter, right? Since he doesn't move things directly. He makes portals that things are moved into...?

So do Nightcrawler (Marvel), Nightshade (DC/Charlton), and Gateway. He does carry packages or take people with him.

Unless we want to split hairs among transporters ('across' + 'carry'), teleporters ('at a distance' + 'carry'), apporters (from Latin apportō: “to bring, to carry”, including summoning and conjuring), and deporters ( carry off, banish, exile) it might be best to use the term most readers would know, or to lump them together as "porters".

Teleport is an effect: instantaneous (possibly FTL in some cases?) transportation from one place to another without (apparently?) passing through the intervening places. The exact mechanic varies.

Move "Minerva" to "Minerva (AI)", please?

Maybe turn Minerva into a disambig, I dunno.

'Cause we've got "Claire Elizabeth Westbrook", a.k.a "Minerva".

Done. "Minerva" just need the usual stuff.

Any reason not to use this version of "Heyoka 3: Survival Class" for the Wiki page's link, instead of that dead link?
