Struck by a radioactive meteorite in 1997, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith gained the superhuman ability to stop the flow of time for everyone but himself.  Although he originally had some vague plans to use this power to fight crime, says Smith, these days he mostly just uses it to catch up on a few hours of sleep here and there with no one but himself the wiser.
