You can create a very powerful Gravitational Singularity. The Singularity will engage your foes, assaulting them with various gravity powers.

The Singularity cannot be healed, but it is highly resistant to all forms of damage and nearly impervious to Controlling type powers. Type /release_pets in the chat window to release all your pets.

Though it cannot be healed, the Singularity may have its health Regeneration increased normally. It is virtually immune to Hold, Sleep, Disorient, Immobilize, Knockback, Knockup, and Repel effects, but not to other effects such as Fear and Confuse. It is virtually immune to Toxic and Psionic damage and highly resistant to all other types.

The victims are sent flying out the other end of the Wormhole and are left Disoriented. You determine the location of the Wormhole's end, and can place it high in the air if desired. More powerful foes may be resistant to the Wormhole effects.

Wormhole is only capable of Teleporting Minions, Lieutenants, Bosses and Elite Bosses. Anything higher may appear to teleport, but will not move to the new location. However, all other status effects (disorient, knockback) will be applied.
