** Xavier's ArchEnemy the Shadow King also specializes in astral projection. It was eventually retconned that he's a purely astral being who possesses human hosts (specifically, other mutants with telepathic powers that can amplify his own). When Xavier and the Shadow King (at the time using the body of an Egyptian named Amahl Farouk) first met, to any outside observers they seemed to be just sitting motionless at their tables in a tavern. In reality, the astral forms had left their bodies to duel. Once his astral form was defeated, his body slumped over, seemingly braindead. This encounter was what led Xavier to conclude he needed to create [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} a team of mutant superheroes]] in order to deal with mutant supervillains like Farouk.

* Used as a means of space travel by Michael Ramer in Creator/JRRTolkien's unfinished story ''[[Literature/TheHistoryOfMiddleEarth The Notion Club Papers]]''. The story is partly written as a commentary on and criticism of Tolkien's friend CSLewis' ''Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy'' novels, and Tolkien - who disliked the idea of spaceships - was using this to suggest an alternative for how such an adventure could take place.
