- Tamaranean Physiology: Ryand'r belongs to a race of extra-terrestrials from the planet Tamaran, providing him with a biological advantage over humans. Tamaraneans appear almost identical to humans save for their golden skin and iridescent eyes.
- Flight: Although he has nether displayed the ability, Ryand'r is likely capable of unaided flight like other members of his race such as his sisters.
- Linguistic Assimilation: Although he has never displayed the ability, Ryand'r presumably possesses the power of linguistic assimilation like the rest of his kind. The most efficient and quickest way for a Tamaranean to assimilate a language is through lip-to-lip oral contact with a practitioner of a sought after language.
- Solar Energy Absorption: Ryand'r, like other Tamaraneans, passively absorbs solar energy from nearby stars into his body, giving him a multitude of solar-based abilities.
- Solar Energy Distribution: Ryand'r can distribute his stored solar energy, increasing the power of a solar-powered ally such as Supergirl. Energy must be transferred through physical contact.
- Solar Energy Projection: Like other Tamaraneans, Ryand'r is able to convert his stored solar energy into potent blasts of green plasma which he can project from any part of his body.
- Superhuman Strength: Although he has never displayed any feats of strength above the capabilities of a human Ryand'r presumably possesses a strength level akin to other members of his kind.
- Missing Forearm: Ryand'r appears to be missing his entire right forearm, although the circumstances in which he lost his appendage is currently unknown.
- Cybernetic Right Forearm: Ryand'r wears a mechanical arm in place of his right forearm. It is unknown if this cybernetic arm possesses any advantages over a regular arm, or if Ryand'r simply wears it as a replacement.
- Ryand'r was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, first appearing in Tales of the New Teen Titans #4. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Ryand'r first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Supergirl (Volume 7) #27 by Marc Andreyko and Eduardo Pansica.
