Power of the Verse
Underworld verse is considered relatively strong between horror based verses, with superhuman characters and destructive weapons and technology. Characters like Selene have Wall level attack potency physically, with Supersonic attack speed.
Several older monsters like Willian Corvinus (the first werewolf) and Markus Corvinus (the firs vampire) are easily Wall level in attack potency.
There exists a decent amount of hax in the verse such as Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Martial Arts, Weapons mastery, Stealth Mastery, Explosion Manipulation, Vehicular Mastery, Disease Manipulation, Status Effect Inducement, Flight, Light Manipulation, among others.
