Joshua Kane had no superhuman abilities but, judging by his muscular appearance, he presumably possessed the strength of a man of his height, age and build who engaged in intensive regular exercise. Additionally, when Kane felt fear, a berserker reaction was triggered in him which appeared to temporarily increase his strength.
Kane normally exhibited a cool and aloof demeanor but he became a raging madman when confronted by something that made him feel too much fear, an emotion he hated himself for ever feeling. It was this resentment of his own fear which drove him to constantly test his own courage by facing danger.
Kane was apparently a skilled horseman and a skilled marksman with both rifle and pistol.
Kane resents the fear that surfaces every time he faces a foe.
Joshua Kane was always a hunter, always looking for any kind of danger to face. Over the years he had hunted elephants, apes, lions and African tribesmen, and he had felt "the thrill of giving death to creatures stronger than (he)." However, after twenty years, the thrill was gone because there was no more danger or excitement so Kane decided to stalk a werewolf.
