We Could be Villains by Megan McCullough

Becoming Glitch

What if you could stop time?
What if it terrified you?

Andy is an unambitious community college student who gets the grades his parents want and spends most of his free time playing games online. His life seems comfortably predictable until a strange cold and an encounter with a surly giant leave him wondering if he really can freeze time. Before long he is practicing hero banter, meeting others with superhuman abilities, and trying to distract his new personal trainer with philosophy.

But all is not well.

When a petty thief turns into a nightmare with claws, even Andy’s safety becomes a thing of the past. As an ominous presence pulls strings from the shadows, Andy must either figure out what it means to become Glitch, or stand by and watch his city fall.
