You suddenly gain one of the three following super powers, but with great power comes an annoying drawback.

Invisibility - You have to hold your breath while invisible in order to extend the duration of the effect. Once you breath you are visible.

Teleportation - Can travel wherever you can see, pictures count if it's a real place, however when you appear you feel as if you've been punched in the stomach. The farther the distance the harder the punch.

Levitation - While afloat you gradually have to go to the bathroom more and more, the faster you fly the quicker your bladder fills up. Wait too long and you lose control of your extremities.

Imagine having all three, that punch in the stomach really becomes a catch 22 the more you have to go to the bathroom.

OPTIONAL: create a sidekick, they have the opposite of each power listed. A beautiful girl who is only visible while holding her breath, a clown who randomly teleports when you punch him in the stomach, and a talking bear who uncontrollably levitates whenever he pee's.

I would do the transportation one. I could totally deal with the pain if I got to go cool places.

Don't forget the distance of teleportation = amount of pain!!

You'd teleport to China and feel like a meteor hit you in the stomach

OUCH!

Teleportation, I wouldn't go far so it would work out.

The levitation downside would be beaten by getting yourself a catheter.

I'd go for teleportation, unless I could do that whole, "Be a hot girl who is only visible when she holds her breath."

Excuse me sir but you have just listed the most powerful sidekick of all time and probably the most fearsome thing ever in a super casual tone and don't think I'll just be able to ignore that.

I choose the kuma

Sir, what a brilliant and yet perplexing scenario . I think I would still do the teleportation and take a day off when I reach my destination.
That's killer jet lag

what if you become invisible if you stop breathing

Then you'd be dead and nobody would know what happened to you

Invisibility or transportation. Invisibility is almost always OP and with a bit of research can be maximized even with the constraints.

Transportation means that you'll eventually need to grow a pain tolerance or addiction to pain killers. Unfortunately pain is an important part of realizing something is wrong with your body and thus the double edge sword. Of course it could be used with little constraints to get into areas that you can physically get close to but would need lots of work to enter like vaults with little more than an upset stomach. Depending on if diagrams work or if you can get footage this would pass the most basic requirements of "someplace you see" - once again research is required to maximize possibility.

Levitation/Flying isn't really practical - it's announcing you have said power to the world and is more than likely going to have you wind up in a small room for the remainder of your life or on a dissection table.

Would the teleportation punch effect be only a feeling or does it actually do physical damage? Cause if I teleport halfway around the world I don't want to explode like I pissed off Mr. Manhattan. If it just hurts really, really bad I can deal with being in the fetal position and weeping for a few hours. As long as I'm not dead I'm good.
