Chieftain of the Mayan gods
Itzamna possesses the conventional physical attributes of the Ahau. Like all of the Ahau, he is exceptionally long-lived, but he is not immortal like the gods of Olympus. He has aged at an extremely slow rate since reaching adulthood and cannot die by any conventional means. He is immune to all Earthly diseases and is resistant to conventional injury. If he were somehow wounded, his godly life force would enable him to recover with superhuman speed. It would take an injury of such magnitude that it dispersed a major portion of his bodily molecules to cause him a physical death. Even then, it might be possible for a god of significant power, such as Zeus, Viracocha or Odin or for a number of Mexican gods of equal power working together to revive him. Itzamna also possesses superhuman strength and his Ahau metabolism provides him with far greater than human endurance in all physical activities. (Ahau flesh and bone is about three times as dense as similar human tissue, contributing to the superhuman strength and weight of the Mayan gods.)
Itzamna has greater powers than any other Mexican god to tap into and manipulate mystical and cosmic energies. He might be on the same level of power as deities such as Zeus, Odin or Ammon-Ra. In ancient times, he could control the weather, teleport matter and impart power on mortal mystics. He is often invoked against supernatural entities for properties pertaining the purifying properties of the sun. He was also credited with being able to raise the dead, create whole worlds and reshape the earth as per his wishes. His full extent of power is unrevealed.
Itzamna possesses superhuman strength to an unknown degree; his strength level might approach that of Odin who can lift (press) almost 85 tons under optimal conditions.
