The ability to travel faster than the speed of light. Sub-power of Absolute Speed. Not to be confused with Subspace Travel, though it is related.

Also Called


The user can travel at speeds faster than speed of light, moving at such speed that it appears the traveler has moved from one spatial location to another instantly. This is achieved usually by moving along tachyons, particles faster than light or by bending two locations within space to temporarily join together, and "jumping" from point A to point B via that bend.



  • Unusable for anything but extreme distances.
  • Accuracy may not be the best.
  • Travel at such speeds might require enormous amounts of energy or fuel.
