Scanner (Marvel)(03 - Acolyte)
Real Name: Sarah Ryall
Search for 'Scanner (Marvel)(03 - Acolyte)' on Amazon

Scanner was originally presented as having the ability to sense the presence and location of other mutants (but not their thoughts). This ability was psychic in nature.

She was later shown to have the ability to indefinitely project her astral form. She could appear instantly in any location she chose, or move at very fast speeds, communicate telepathically, and disrupt the astral forms of others while in this state. Her astral form was shown as being either visible or invisible depending on whether she wished her presence to be known.

While astral projecting, Scanner's body remained unconscious.

Later writers mistakenly presented her power as being able to transform her her body into an 'electro-transitional' form. Essentially she became a living hologram, able to travel at the speed of light.
