At the time of the arrival, Mar-Vell had no super powers except being more durable and stronger than the humans. It has evolved with the higher physical strength than the human beings since to combat the heavy gravitation from their home planets. This character was a warrior and he is loaded with the device called a uni-beam (or universal beam). This equipment was first used a hand held pistol and later it was changed into a wrist mounted equipment which is capable of controlling magnetism, projecting energy and emitting the beams of pure darkness.
