Superhuman Abilities:
1. Sound Generation- He can generate sound with his vocal cords far
beyond the capabilities of a normal human as regards decibel level 
and range. He can create sound levels able to shatter solid objects 
and can create sound in the infra (up to 16 Hz) and ultra (over 
16000 Hz) ranges as well as the range the normal human ear can hear 
(16-16000 Hz). 
2. Sound Manipulation- He can psionically control sound to create 
various effects. He often uses this power for:
a. Flight- he can fly at supersonic speeds, using sound waves to 
protect him from the normal effects of flight at this speed.
b. Sonic Blast- he can focus sound waves at a target and cause it to
shatter. At high power his blasts can virtually disintegrate a 
target. At low power he can knock a person unconscious without 
causing them further harm.
c. Sonic Shield- he can focus sound waves into a physical shield to
protect from solid matter or energy.
d. Sonic Shroud- he can enhance or diminish ambient sound in an area 
to make an area silent or much louder than it is.
e. Sonar- he can use sound waves to perceive an area through
echolocation, mimicking sonar.
f. Subsonic Suggestion- he can manipulate subsonic frequencies to 
make his suggestions hard to resist. He can also crudely manipulate 
certain emotions in listeners by adjusting subharmonics when he 
speaks or sings. 
g. Ventriloquism- he can create sound at a distance or manipulate
soundwaves so that sounds generated nearby appear to come from 
somewhere else or sounds generated far away appear to originate 
nearby. This second use allows him to eavesdrop from a great 
3. Enhanced Hearing- in addition to being able to manipulate sound 
waves to allow him to hear things at a distance, Coda can hear 
sounds in ranges outside the normal human range, in the infra and 
ultra range.
4. Protected Hearing- he unconsciously protects himself from loud 
noises, including his own sound attacks, by manipulating the sound 
that reaches his eardrums, dampening possibly damaging levels of
