Powers and Abilities[]


Martian Physiology: The average Martian possesses the potential for the following power set:

  • Shape-Shifting: Martians have psionic control of their physical for down to the molecular level. This allows them to a form of shape-shifting that allows them to mimic other forms, elongate aspects of their body, increase or decrease their physical size, and so on.
  • Size Alteration: As an extension of their shape-shifting abilities Martians can alter their size with ease, being able to shrink or grow to gigantic size.
  • Malleability: Green Martians can stretch and bend their bodies and limbs. (e.g. into large whips to grab things at great distance).
  • Accelerated healing factor: Due to their shape-shifting powers, Green Martians heal and recover faster than humans would, to the point of regenerating from damage in minutes.
  • Bio-clothing: Another aspect of their shape shifting is their clothes, that are generated as part of their physical bodies.
  • Camouflage: Green Martians can blend in within the environment by changing the appearance of their form and bending light waves around them to match with their surroundings making themselves almost - but not completely invisible. their chances of staying undetected are diminished if they are moving.
  • Density-shifting: Green Martians are able to phase through solid objects or to increase their density to become near-invulnerable.
  • Invisibility: Martians can cause the biopolymers in their bodies to lose their ability to reflect light, making the Martians invisible to normal light and human sight.
  • Phasing: Martians can go through solid matter.
  • Superhuman Strength: Martians possess superhuman levels of physical strength.
  • Superhuman Stamina
  • Self-Sustenance - Martian physiology is self-sufficient negating the need for food or drink.
  • Superhuman Durability: Martians possess high levels of durability that make them nigh-invulnerable to all forms of damage. Martians can withstand high caliber bullets, powerful energy blast and kinetic impacts without suffering damage.*Regeneration: Martians have powerful regenerative powers that enable them to regenerate their entire body from a severed limb, they can furtherly enhance their regenerative powers by drawing mass from nearby sources.
  • Superhuman Speed: Martians can process thoughts, move, and react at incredible speeds.
  • Martian Vision: Martian visual acuity greatly exceed human norms and allows for a wider range of information to be observed. This includes the following:
    • Heat Vision
    • Infrared Vision
    • X-Ray Vision
    • Electro-Magnetic Spectrum Vision
    • Telescopic Vision
    • Microscopic Vision
    • Night Vision
  • Extrasensory Input: A Martian possesses nine different senses.
  • Telepathy: Martians have the ability to read the minds of others and project their thoughts to varying degrees. They can also project their mental essences into a gestalt community known as the "Great Mind". Through this, the community can enhance the telepathic strength of other Martians. This power can also enable them to reverse the effects of amnesia or psychological brainwashing.
  • Telekinesis: Martians have mind-over-matter abilities and can lift and move objects with their minds. They can also employ their telekinesis in offensive way by discharging telekinetic blasts capable of great concussive power.
  • Invulnerability: Green Martians' bodies are denser than a human's.
  • Breathlessness: Green Martians do not need to breathe, as J'onn traveled through the vacuum of space unequipped.


  • Vulnerability to Fire: Martians are much more vulnerable to fire than the average Earth human. At times this has been portrayed as physical, psychological, or a combination of the two. The effect of this is to strip any Martian of their powers as they involuntarily lose control of their body.
