Braalian Physiology:

  • Magnetic Manipulation: Braalians have the natural ability to lift and manipulate metal. Braalians can produce a number of effects. They can manipulate, repel or attract metal objects of varying sizes. Naturally, the more metal that is in an object the easier it is for them to affect magnetically. Their super-magnetism has only a slight effect on the metallic particles of smog. Braalians are able to juggle smaller metal objects. Braalians have pulled large iron meteors and satellites down from space with minimal effort, as well. They can use their magnetic power on rocks that contain iron ore.
  • Magnetic Force-Fields: Braalians can protect themselves from physical harm, can stretch their fields to protect a large group, and can suspend persons or objects in the air.
  • Magnetic Flight: Braalians can suspend themselves in flight by riding the Earth's magnetic field.
  • Electromagnetic Sight: By concentrating, Braalians can perceive the world around themselves solely as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy. They can perceive the natural magnetic auras surrounding living beings, as well.
  • Magnetic Pulse: Braalians can focus their magnetic energy into powerful concussive blasts. They can also overload or short-circuit electrical systems.
  • Energy Absorption: Braalians have been shown absorbing some forms of energy through their magnetic force fields to temporarily boost their own strengths. Such as Cosmic Boy, he was able to absorbed Lightning Lads's lightning blast.
  • Geomagnetic Link: Braalians are tied very closely to Braals's or whatever planet they are on EM Field. As it is effected, so are they. They know instinctively all that happens to it.
  • Organic Iron Manipulation: Braalians have such control over their powers that they are able to manipulate the natural iron within the blood of living organisms.


  • Non-Magnetic Materials: Braalians power cannot affect non-magnetic metals, such as aluminum and gold, or organic substances like wood.
  • Distance Limitation: Distance affects the limit their magnetic control has over an object, as does the amount of metal in or on that object.
