Powers

Dinah Soar appeared as a pterosaur-like humanoid with the following abilities:

  • Flight: Dinah could fly via her razor-tipped wings that protruded from her back and attached to her arms. In flight, she had great maneuverability and could achieve very high speeds. Her feet were equipped to hold people while she was aloft.[6][1][11][4]
  • Acoustikinesis: Dinah's vocal range was hypersonic and inaudible to most individuals.[7] She could use her voice as an offensive weapon by varying the pitch and wavelength. She could also disrupt others' sonic powers.[4]
    • Smoothing: Dinah's hypersonic voice was one of the only things that would calm and smooth Mr. Immortal after his resurrections.[6][3][2] However, it is unclear if this is an acoustic/sonic-based power or if it is simply because of her deep connection with Mr. Immortal.
  • Advanced Longevity: Dinah has reported that her species live very long lives.[2][7]




Equipment

  • Whistle: Dinah carried a whistle to communicate or alert others in emergencies.[6] This whistle was given to her as a Christmas gift by Mr. Immortal.[7]
