|“||I've been doing a lot of reading, you know? Like, online about, like, just evolution and natural selection and how like there's this thing, right? It's called the apex predator, right? And basically what this is, is the strongest animal in the ecosystem, right? And as human beings, we're considered the apex predator but only because smaller animals can't feed on us because of weapons and stuff, right? A lion does not feel guilty when it kills a gazelle, right? You do not feel guilty when you squash a fly... and I think that means something. I just think that really means something.||„|

Able to shape a cloud into a middle-finger)
Attack Potency: Human level physically, Small Building level with Telekinesis (One of his telekinetic attacks blew up a room and was compared to an explosion, capable of telekinetically crushing an entire car or blowing away multiple police cars at once with a large telekinetic shockwave. Threw a bus hard enough to shatter the front of a building. Stronger than Matt and Steve due to training his powers more, could effortlessly block one of Matt's punches and hold his own against Matt despite being weakened). Can bypass conventional durability by aiming for internal organs
Speed: Average Human with Supersonic reactions, combat, and flight speeds (Able to react at flying at high-speeds through the air. Reacted to a plane flying at him, as well as objects thrown at him with telekinesis. Able to barely shield himself from an gas explosion and repeatedly blocks bullets), likely Massively Hypersonic+ attack speed with lightning bolts

Standard Equipment: Video camera
Intelligence: Academically smart but nothing out of the ordinary. Andrew was quick to learn his new powers. On the other hand Andrew was pretty bold/stupid as a criminal.
Weaknesses: He's physically still human and can be easily caught off-guard. His telekinetic shielding only works for a moment, requiring him to time each incoming threat individually. At the height of his power Andrew was emotionally unstable and rather easy to provoke.
