"These beings. Some of them have powers from your darkest nightmares."
—"Hank Henshaw"[src]

Most extraterrestrial species possess native attributes that can be classified by human standards as superpowers. In other instances, these abilities only manifest when an alien is exposed to a certain environment once outside of their homeworld or to a specific source of energy.
