My answers to the superhero meme, sent this way by the great Lenin. (With scans from comics in my very own collection!)

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? (Assume you also get baseline superhero enhancements like moderately increased strength, endurance and agility.)

Retractable claws, like Molly Millions from Neuromancer (another cybergothic heroine as it goes) and Wolverine.

Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?


Storm. She's a black goth with power over the elements ... 'Nuff said.

OK, here's the tough one. What would your superhero name be? (No prefab porn-name formulas here, you have to make up the name you think you'd be proud to mask under.)

Death Drive.

For extra credit: Is there an 'existing' superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?


The Black Panther

Pass it on. Three people please, and why they're the wind beneath your wings.

'Wind beneath my wings', yeuch.... but....
Infinite Thought, because I want to see if her superhero can combine Soviet Goth with pixiedom; Baal, because whatever he writes is charged with poetic illumination, and it's long past time for him to write something new; top shoe fetishist Glueboot, because I want to see the costume design.
