Banshee (Marvel) uses
Sonic Scream to perform Echolocation.
Navigate via sound waves
The ability to
determine the location of objects in the environment by use of reflected sound waves, whether generated by the character or ambient sounds.
Users emit calls out to the environment and listen to the echoes of those calls that return from various objects near them, and use these echoes to locate and identify the objects. Alternately, they can use ambient sounds do the same. Since this ability isn't based on sight/light,
Invisibility is useless against it, as are most forms of Camouflage.
: can be used for similar effect.
Energy Senses : Sense vibrations from solid objects.
Seismic Sense Sonar: Echolocation using water as a medium instead of air.
Other sounds may throw off this ability's effectiveness.
Users often have sensitive ears, which can be painful.

Inaudibility negates this power completely.
