Black Swan is a highly skilled fighter and assassin.
Telepathy: Originally the Black Swan had the power to infect the minds of others with a telepathic "virus" (akin to a computer virus) capable of disrupting neural functions to varying degrees. He is also able to use this ability to search others' memories for information.
Neural Healing: He has the power to heal certain types of psychological disorders, as he did for the mentally ill man called Ratbag.
Power Mimicry: He has proved able to absorb not only knowledge and skills, but also physical powers from others in moments of great stress. After absorbing part of Deadpool's abilities and memories, he had a healing factor, but his telepathic abilities were diminished. Upon absorbing the powers of both Deadpool and Agent X, his healing factor and telepathy were both increased to a great degree. He was also able to levitate himself at this time.
Black Swan is a German mutant raised in the Bavarian circus and highly trained in hand-to-hand, swordplay and marksmanship. He utilized his ability to infect the minds of others with disruptive "telepathic viruses" to become a successful mercenary and hit man. He carried out an assassination on the four heads of the Japanese Four Winds crime families in New York, Black Swan carried them out surreptitiously, however, the credit was given to rival contractor Deadpool. Black Swan became insulted since it was he who had performed the high-profile kills.
