Humpty Dumpty has no super human powers.
The unfortunately named Humphry Dumpler has suffered throughout most of his life from a string of almost supernaturally bad luck. A very large man with an egg-shaped head, Dumpler is compulsively driven to speak in rhyme and to disassemble then reassemble malfunctioning machinery in the hopes of fixing it. His criminal actions were not, therefore, intentionally malicious, but were instead misguided attempts to understand and "fix" the world that had so mistreated him. Nonetheless, his actions lead to various tragedies, such as the derailment of a train due to his inexpert reassembly. An attempt to fix the Gotham clock tower lead to a chain reaction of destruction that resulted in the deaths of several Gothamites. He also murdered and dissected his abusive grandmother, then sewed her back together with boot laces, again in an attempt to "fix" her.
