* Several characters in the WhateleyUniverse can do this to one extent or another. At the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy, Ringo has this power, as does the hated Assistant to the Headmistress Ms. Hartford (so the school's computer network has security that DARPA envies) and even Samantha Everheart who is one of the schools security officers (but she has merged with a nanite supercomputer called Hive so she has an unfair advantage). Also the super villain Dr. Abel Palm has not only done this, but has magically encrypted his soul into AI viruses and is trying to destroy all humankind. Merry is a cyberpath who can dive into computer networks and do whatever she wants. Whatever. She. Wants.
