Flight is a power enabling one to fly without the aid of machines.
Individuals who possess the ability to fly do so through various different means, such as gravity manipulation, manipulation of certain elements, mystical means, divine empowerment, etc. Most users of this power use this ability for transporting themselves, but also can use it to transport others as well.
As far as flight is concerned, most users of this ability are capable of going to extraordinary heights, even going as far as flying in space, however the limitation with this is that not all users can accomplish such a feat. Flight also maybe limited in terms of speed, which means one may not be able to move at superhuman speeds. Some people who possess this power may need to properly develop or flex their manipulative muscles before mastering flight, which means that they may need a certain amount of time to develop the ability.
Gravity also plays a key role in the use of flight and some users may not have the ability of flight in certain environments. This means that if the gravity is more, the user may have trouble defying gravity than they normally do. Certain weapons like a gravity gun are capable of making a certain individual more heavy than they normally are and make it harder for them to get off the ground.
