  • Flight
  • Sensor System: The armor was designed to mimic Superman's vision and hearing. It was able to perceive the entire electromagnetic spectrum and an expanded range of sound frequencies. In addition it had radiation and movement detectors.
  • Energy System: While its main power source was an array of solar cells, it was also able to absorb heat and electricity to replenish its energy reserves.[2]
  • Life Support: It had internal reserves of water, energy, and air. It was also equipped with a filtration/recycling system and a system to control its internal temperature. This also incorporated a breathing mask designed by Ted Kord for use in space.[3]
  • Teleportation: A later addition to the armor was incorporation of teleportation technology.[4]
