You can only plot real valued numbers, but Im[x] is a real number. So
are Abs[x], Arg[x] and Re[x]. Plot either one of these. There are some
fun ways of plotting two parts of a 2-D vector (like a complex number)
together, say by encoding the magnitude as height and the phase
(Arg[]) by color. I believe there is an example in the Mathematica
book.
