Enhanced Abilities: Maelstrom has enhanced strength and endurance due to his Inhuman/Deviant physiology.
Kinetic Absorption: Maelstrom’s main ability is a Terrigen mist derived capacity to mentally manipulate all forms of kinetic energy and transform it into physical strength.
Cloning: Maelstrom can create clones of himself and his minions. When any of them is killed, his technology draws the life force into a new body. This gives him practical Immortality.
Maelstrom is the son of an Inhuman geneticist and a Deviant handmaiden, the first known hybrid of these two sister races to humanity. Some time before 1900, Maelstrom's father Phaeder vied with Agon (the future sire of Black Bolt) for the leadership of the Inhumans' governing body, the Genetics Council. Having lost, Phaeder was soon barred from the Council because of his experiments in cloning, a branch of genetics the Council had outlawed. Faking death, Phaeder stole away from the island-city of Attilan in self-imposed exile. Eventually he came upon a colony of Deviants, and met Morga, a Deviant woman, attractive by Inhuman standards but ugly by those of the Deviants. The two mated and produced a son who was later called Maelstrom.
