Known Powers

Sentient beings possessed by the "Uni-Power", enabling superhuman strength, speed, stamina, agility, durability, hypnosis, heightened senses, precognitive perception, flight and an ability to manipulate all forms of matter and energy.

If the sentient possessed by the Uni-Power already possesses superhuman abilities these abilities are amplified in addition to the powers bestowed.

Each recipient is clad in a variant of the Captain Universe uniform with all the knowledge necessary to wield the power.

Note: The Uni-Power is an extra-dimensional force which temporarily possesses sentient beings in times of crisis or jeopardy. How the Uni-Power determines whom to possess is unknown, but once the crisis has passes the power migrates onto another recipient, therefore somewhere someone is always transformed into Captain Universe.


Enigma Force: Extra-dimensional energy from which the Uni-Power is derived.

By its nature the extra-dimensional Enigma Force is unfathomable. The reason for the manifestation of its surrogate the Uni-Power is just as much a mystery. What is known is that in times of peril or crisis the Uni-Power bestows awesome abilities to those that are transformed into the hero Captain Universe.
