So I have been pondering what a Black ( Vathlo Heritage) Kryptonian's powerset could be and I think I came up with a good one, please let me know if you think:
Kryptonians from Vathlo develop a mildly different powerset than Caucasian Kryptonians due to their melanin content and solar absorbtion.
EDIT: Vathlo is an Island on Krypton and is apart of Pre-52 Superman lore, it is stated that this island has people who resemble African-Americans, I did not make this up.
uper-Speed ( on par with superman)
Super-Strength ( on par with superman)
Flight ( on par with superman)
Durability/Survivability ( on par with superman)
Due to their skin's aversion to solar absorption Vathlo Kryptonians do not have heat vision, but can discharge the solar energy they have metabolized, this can manifest into radial discharge explosions, or concentrated beams from the hand. However a discharge of such energy makes the Vathlo Kryptonians in a severe weakened state. They can easily recharge their energies through Sun dipping or a period exposed to sunlight.
Ultrasonic breath: Due to long adaptation on Kryptons hot, dry areas of Vathlo island, the Vathlo Kryptonians Can emit a hard Ultrasonic yell which has massive concussive sonic waves, which are visible to the naked eye.
Vathlo kryptonians are susceptible to Magic, but have a higher tolerance for Kryptonite.
Red Sun rays, also effect them harsher as their cells absorb more of the sun rays, it is akin to what Kryptonite would be for a Mainland kryptonian.
thanks for reading, if you did, let me know what you guys think of this.
