Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Cellular replication: Danton could replicate his cells at superhuman speeds allowing him to create life-sized clones of himself. He was shown to be able to create hundreds of clones before feeling the stress. He could also use this power to create multiple limbs on his body.
- Fatigue: Despite the ability to create large amounts of duplicates of himself, it causes too much stress on his body, and like Barry he ("the prime"), begins to feel the stress of it.
- "Hive Mind": If Danton himself ("the prime"), is knocked unconscious, it creates something of a domino effect: his fellow clones will follow as he cannot give them commands.
