Darkstar possesses the ability to tap and manipulate an intense-black form of extradimensional energy called the Darkforce. This energy, which appears to be related to the extradimensional black gas-like substance manipulated by the Shroud and Cloak, possesses mass and form whereas the Shroud's and Cloak's does not. It may be that it is the same substance and Darkstar simply knows how to manipulate it to greater effect than the other two. Her power seems analogous to that of Blaokout.
Darkstar can project the Darkforce into simple mentally controlled forms such as pincers, rings, columns, spheres, and so on. She can form objects with the density of steel. She can form objects with a maximum volume of approximately 750 cubic feet, sufficient to encompass ten human beings comfortably. These objects are solid and well defined while she consciously wills them to be. If she is rendered unconscious, they dissipate. Darkstar can also project the Darkforce as a beam of solid force, capable of impacting an object with sufficient power to rupture 3-inch solid high-carbon steel or tip over an average, loaded railroad boxcar (15 tons).
Darkstar can also employ the Darkforce to teleport herself and up to three others. She does this, in a manner similar to that of Cloak, by entering into the Darkforce's dimension of origin, traversing a distance (which may or may not be the linear correspondent distance in this dimension) and reemerging in Earth's space. She has so far been able to travel a maximum distance of about t mile in this way. Because crossing through the interdimensional portal disorients her sense of direction, and the light of the Earth dimension blinds her for several seconds upon reemergence, teleportation is risky. It also takes her several seconds to create a portal into the Darkforce dimension, preventing her from teleporting out of the way of such high velocity danger as a bullet. Sasha had created a dark sphere that was capable of pulling massive objects towards it, similar to a black hole - where the gravity well is so deep that gravitational time dilation halts time completely forming an event horizon.
Darkstar can utilize the attractive force of the Darkforce dimension to fly. By generating a virtually invisible portal into the dimension in the contour of her body, she balances its attractive force upon her against that of Earth's gravity, without passing through the portal. She can fly at speeds up to 120 miles per hour, the maximum velocity at which she is still able to breathe. She cannot support the weight of anyone other than herself while in flight.
Sasha is scared of her abilities.
