Malleable Form: Vulkor like all Martians possesses a psionic control over his physical form, even down to the molecular level. As a form of shape-shifting, this power enables a Martian to contort his or her physical structure allowing them to adopt human form, elongate their limbs and grow to immense size.
Invisibility: Vulkor possesses the ability to bend waves of light around him, rendering him invisible to most forms of human detection.

Regeneration: Martians have powerful regenerative powers that enable them to regenerate their entire body from a severed limb, they can further enhance their regenerative powers by drawing mass from nearby sources.

Martian Vision: Vulkor is able to project heat beams from his eyes.
Self-Sustenance: Martian physiology is self-sufficient negating the need for food or drink.
Helmet: Vulkor employed a large, spherical helmet which to date was only used as a means of controlling the "Brainwave Energizer." Said device, when placed within a close proximity of an individual, allowed Vulkor to control their actions. The Brainwave Energizer has proven effective against human, but not Martians.
Vehicle: Vulkor pilots the atom-powered "Capsule," a large, orange, spherical metal aircraft that resembles a bathysphere. The craft contains a massive, telescoping mechanical arm capable of tearing apart a jet plane. The sphere is also equipped with a forcefield able to fend off most attacks.
Vulkor is a Martian criminal that was imprisoned on his home world for stealing the only working model of a super-weapon developed to defend the planet. Believed destroyed in the conflict leading to Vulkor's capture, the super-weapon was instead dismantled and hidden in various locations. Several of Vulkor's Martian underlings took refuge on Earth near Star City, and so hid several components in the area. Three of these underlings impersonated Earth criminals, going so far as to serve time in prison, until everything was ready to recover the super-weapon components.
Once the arch-criminal Vulkor escaped incarceration on Mars, he made contact with his henchmen in order to gather the components of the super weapon.
