Origin: Luther Strode was a typical nerd. He was beat up everyday, too afraid to talk to hers, etc. However, one day, Luther ordered a book online "The Hercules Method". Luther studied this book, and it unlocked something inside of him. Luther became a Superhuman, and set out to fight crime. That is until The Librarian showed up. The Librarian is another Hercules method user. However, he worked for the creator of the book, Cain, and tried to teach Luther the art of murder and that everyone in the world is just meat waiting to be slaughtered.. Once Luther killed the Librarian, he made it his mission to hunt down the rest of Cain's students in order to try and convince them that murder is not the way.
- Lifting Strength: Lifting wise, I'd place Strode at around 1-2 tons. Justin Jordan has stated he can't lift a car, and he hasn't done anything ridiculous to say otherwise (lifting wise)
- Striking Strength: This is another story, Luther regularly breaks through majorly reinforced concrete, steel, and competely vaporizes peoples heads by punching them. He is easily pushing 10+ ton striking strength.
- Durability: While most of Luther is Healing/Muscle Control, Luther is still insanely durable, as has been slammed into concrete enough to competely shatter a street (and trade blows with said people) without getting hurt.
- Pre-Cog/Senses/Body-Reading: It was never confirmed in-story which it was, however Justin Jordan said in a tweet that it is just enhanced body reading. (It's been majorly hinted at multiple times that its Pre-cog though)
- Meat Vision: It has showed that with this ability, Luther can see inside people (never stated if it was X-ray or whatever), and can see any injury and weakspot they have.
- Healing Factor: As long as Luther's brain is intact, he can heal from pretty much any damage.
