Enhanced Condition (Power)

Also Called

  • Peak Condition
  • Physical Prime

  • Transhuman/Transhumanism

Capabilities

The user is at the peak physical and/or mental condition of their particular species can achieve without any super-/unnatural methods. This usually entails that they are faster, stronger, more intelligent and overall superior to fellow members of their species without being obviously supernatural.
This power can best be summed up by Batgirl #14 (May 2001):

"Look—humans can throw a 100 miles-per-hour fastball, smash concrete blocks with their heads, and run 4.2 forties. What they can't do is all of that at once. It's not so much physical as... as mentally impossible. Too much to coordinate."
