Meredith asked Keith R.A. DeCandido:

If you were a superhero, what powers would you have, what would your name be, and what costume would you wear?

Keith R.A. DeCandido Actually, back in the 1990s when I was KEITH.D on the GEnie bulletin board (which I know the person asking the question remembers, because she was STAR on it), we did the "Justice League GEnie," where members of the Comics RoundTable were all particularly bizarre (and totally incompetent) superheroes. John Terra wrote the main stories (he was Writer Dude, if memory serves), and we had lots of other silly stuff happening.

At the time, I hadn't had my first fiction published, and I was better known as one of the producers and hosts of THE CHRONIC RIFT, which at the time was a public access TV show in New York City, rather than the podcast it is today. So I was Interview Lad! My power was to change my right hand into a video camera, my left hand into a bright light, and when I made that change, I was overwhelmed by the compulsion to ask questions.

So I'll go with that. :)
