  • Hank’s powers are assumed to be the same as Waverider, and included:
  • Chronokinesis (Formerly): Extant could time-travel at will, age or rejuvenate persons and objects, etcetera.[19] When possessing the Worlogog, these abilities were far greater. He could erase a period of time and all his relevant changes.[20] He could even reform the universe at his twisted will.[21]

    • Retrocognition
