- Nigh-Invulnerability: He is also confident in the fact that he is almost physically invulnerable to extreme physical attacks.
- Flight: He is also able to fly at high speeds.

- Nuke was created as a pastiche of DC's Firestorm although he much more resembles DC's other nuclear themed superhero Captain Atom.
- He and Power Princess are the only members of the Squadron Supreme whose voice actors haven't played any character related to their DC inspirations.
