Powers and Abilities
- Speed Force Conduit: Walter gained access to a mysterious extra-dimensional energy field, called the Speed Force, granting him many abilities.
- Superhuman Speed: Walter is capable of moving at vast superhuman speeds. He is fast enough to be in three places at once.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Walter possesses reflexes far greater than a normal human being. This allows him to easily react to danger and events, and perceive the world in slow motion.
- Superhuman Stamina: Walter's body can handle the stress of moving at superhuman speeds for long periods of time without getting tired or weak.
- Superhuman Agility: Walter's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels. This allows him to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speed.
- Superhuman Strength: Walter possesses significantly enhanced strength, as he was capable of hurling Impulse several feet through the air with a single arm, as well as carry multiple people at once while running.
- Speed Force Aura: The Speed Force also manifests an aura around the speedster and whatever they are carrying, protecting them from adverse effects of their speed, such a friction with the air.
- Dimensional Travel: Walter can use his speed to break open tears in the space-time continuum, allowing himself to travel to alternate realities.
- Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force enhances Walter's senses, allowing him to perceive the world at a rate attuned how fast he can react. Walter can also sense slight vibrational disturbances in the area around him.
- Molecular Acceleration: Walter can accelerate the speed of his own molecules, as well as others for various purposes. He can shift the speed around in a person's brain, accelerating their neurons and slowing their cerebral cortex, which can cause a person enough pain to make them pass out.
- Regeneration: Walter learned from Savitar to accelerate cell growth to metabolize and heal his wounds. This allows him to instantly regenerate from any damage.
- Speed Lend/Steal: Walter is able to lend and steal speed and momentum from people or objects, such as bullets.
