Personality and attributes
Powers and abilities
In terms of physical might, Tyrak was noted to rival Attuma and was able to enhance himself further by alternating his size and mass. He was able to reach a maximum of 40–50 feet (12–15 m) enabling him to overwhelm even Namor and the Avengers.
Tyrak was adept at infiltration and disguise with him being able by unknown means to change his physiology to mimic the form of most anyone he's had time to study thus making him an accomplished spy and assassin.
Tyrak also boasts a slew of advanced atlantean facilities in his arsenal, such as the specialized filters surgically implanted in his gills which let him operate in open air without fear of asphyxiation. His special suit withholds a great many water reserves to keep him hydrated while on dry land, and also comes equipped with steel clawed razor gauntlets to augment his melee. The breastplate stores potent knockout gas dispensers with which to disable an adversary in quick session upon their release.
