Powers and Abilities

Her body is constantly absorbing and storing energy from Earth's yellow sun, which in turn grants them incredible powers, such as superhuman strength, senses, impenetrable skin, and even the power to defy gravity.

Amara possessed all the typical weaknesses of a super-powered Kryptonian.

  • Green Kryptonite: Like all Kryptonians, Amara was weak against green kryptonite, as it is a radioactive mineral from her home planet Krypton. Green Kryptonite not only weakens her physical attributes, leaving her vulnerable to weapons and anything in general that can kill a normal human, but if she was exposed to it for too long, it will kill her.
  • Red Kryptonite: Like all good Kryptonians, if Amara was exposed to red kryptonite, she would be left without morality, rationality, or any cares whatsoever. Left with only malice, pride and wrath, Amara would become malevolent and prone to hostility and aggression, making her a danger to everyone around her.
  • Lead: Amara could not see through lead, even with her X-ray vision.
  • Red sun energy: The energy from a red sun is known to be the Kryptonian's natural sun and therefore, exposure to it will make them the equivalent of a human on Earth.
  • Extreme energy: Extreme amounts of energy, could be enough to kill Amara.
  • Solar energy depletion: Using her powers to its maximum for an extended period can significantly drain her solar energy to the point where Amara loses all of her powers and was rendered more human like for at least a day. This renders her as weak as a human, allowing Amara to get injured and killed as easy as killing a human.
  • Magic: Since Amara's powers were because of her Kryptonian physiology, she had no protection from the supernatural world.
