What power do you think makes the least sense in comics?

I know that super speed often gets this one from folks, but you know what I think makes the least sense?

Intangibility!

It just seems so dangerous. I mean, how does Kitty Pryde, when she materializes, make sure she doesn't, like, merge with her socks or whatever?

And light is solid, right? So it would seem like she would have the same problem that people say invisible people would have - the light would go through her intangible retinas!

Am I wrong here? Has all this been explained in the comics?

What power do YOU think makes the least sense?

As much as I love the man, Nightcrawler (and all teleportation) is pretty far out. Even adding the limitation of having to be able to visualize his target doesn't really help. Considering the speed at which the surface of the earth is moving, and the earth relative to the solar system, the solar system to the galaxy, etc., from one second to another the place he is moving to has moved from where it would have been even a second ago! Somehow he msut be able to have a constant reference point for all places and speeds in the universe. Einstein is not amused.

What's all this talk about Kitty Pride's socks and Nightcrawler's ability to move at the speed of the Earth's rotation? It's a COMIC BOOK folks don't take it so seriously! If you add science to fiction it will fuck you up!
