The more reviews I read of this series, the more they remind me of the Anita Blake series by Laurel Hamilton.

I was thinking about the accumulation of unusual abilities.

If she's really a ghoul, does she just wanna to have fun?

There's comics character named variously "Shreck" and apparently "Terror Inc." (possibly for tax or other legal convenience, since due to his condition he's probably legally dead) who acquires people's abilities - and feelings - by replacing his body parts with theirs (ewwwww). Parts from super-powered person come with the super-power; Wikipedia thinks it has to be a body part associated with the power e.g. "Iron Fist". Citation needed.

Wikipedia also says, "Though the body parts bond permanently with Terror, they are still dead tissue and will begin to decay at their natural rate. This gives Terror a distinctive odor" - uh, right.

Also, "Marvel Zombies", as well as a criticism of readers who follow this sort of thing too closely, is a comics series with the premise "What if all the superheroes turned into zombies and they ate everybody else in the world at super-speed." What I saw of this was "much bickering amongst the ex-heroes about how they're still hungry".

I was brought up to consider "white trash" a racist term (due to the implication that black people were trash by default).

Yep. It's really cringe-inducing. "But X applies it to him/herself!" Um, no.

"When, exactly, did we become white trash?"
