  • Contortionism: Peter has the ability to twist and contort his body in virtually any way he pleases, allowing him to fit into spaces of any size and shape. He even managed to squeeze himself into a suitcase, and through the grates of an air vent.
    • Elasticity:Peter has been shown to stretch his body and fit into small spaces, like pipes.
  • Superhuman Durability:Peter's malleable physiology grants him superhuman durability, being capable of surviving an explosion powerful enough to cause a tall building to collapse, followed by being buried under the rubble of said building. Peter has shown no visible negative reaction to smashing his own hand flat. Also walking backwards and being squished roughly to the size of a remote cause cause him no discomfort.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Peter has demonstrated that he can catch bullets in mid-air and throw them back at the shooter with lethal force.


  • Gymnastics: Peter is very nimble, mostly from his contortion abilities, as he had managed to disarm Joe of his gun with a backflip.
  • Thievery
  • Stealth: Peter was able to sneak up on Barry without him noticing despite the latter being a speedster. He also managed to get the drop on Cisco and Sherlouque while they were in an elevator at S.T.A.R. Labs. His contortionist powers allow him to travel through air vents of a building while avoiding detection.
