Q&A with AJ Fitzwater

1.) Summer’s finally in full swing, and that means it’s time for super hero movies at the box office. Rolling along with that theme, if you were a super hero (or villain!), what would your powers be? And how would you use those powers to fight evil (or good!)?

I was just brain burping out loud about this on Twitter the other day. It changes, depending on what’s happening in the news. Sometimes I just want FEENOMINUL GAWDLIKE POWAHS (eety beety living space) to make everyone love each other. Sometimes I just want to fly. I wrote a story to that effect, that’s coming out soon – I often dream of wanting to fly, but being tethered by gravity or power lines. Lately, I wish I could read and write super fast. My To Read pile taunts me, and I’d love the simple power of my words to change lives. Person reading: “Oh hey…’Don’t be a douchecanoe’ *poof* Wow! I love you man!”

If I could choose from modern superheroes, I’d want to be Iron Man. It’s the suit, the snappy one liners, and the beard…

Anti-Commuter Bore Man; actively charged with fighting all known bores encountered going about your daily business, and generally instilling in these time-destroying fiends the ability to raise their conversational game beyond the contents of their breakfast. Pretty much Larry David in spandex pants.

Q&A with Rose Blackthorn

The super-powers that I’ve seen in comics/films that always appealed to me were control over the weather like Storm from the X-Men. To be able to rustle up a thunderstorm at whim, or even just bring in some fog when you’re in the mood would be very cool. Not sure about using them to fight with, but it would be an awful lot of fun!

Q&A with Thomas Canfield

Truth, justice and the American way? Nah! Too much of a cliché. I’d go in more for some power which would convey mind control, intimidation and domination. Reducing the masses to mind-numbed robots, responsive to whatever information I care to feed them. Not unlike what the American media manages to accomplish – but with more panache and style.

Well that’s a tough one there! The possibilities are endless. I guess my superhero/villain power would be inter-dimensional jumping. I would want a powered armored suit with a cannon that fires a shotgun like anti-matter spread, so that when the projectiles come into contact with the foe it creates dozens of mini black holes therefore turning the target into Swiss cheese. Ultimately erasing that individual from existence in that universe. Yeeeeah I’ve given it some thought hahah! It’s based on a concept a writer friend of mine came up with.
