Dr. Nemesis' costume possesses circuitry which apparently accesses the Pym Particle or a variant, enabling him to grow to superhuman size or shrink, with similar capabilities to Henry Pym (although Nemesis could not alter the size of other objects, without additional help). He adapted his equipment to allow him to change the weight of an object, without affecting its mass or volume. This enabled him to throw a normal object, such as a baseball, and have it strike with the force of a 100 pound object moving at a similar speed (see comments).
He also used other equipment, such as an electro-magnetic shield, protecting him from physical attack, and the Mass Aquisition Unit. The Mass Aquisition Unit increased the mass (or weight) of itself and/or objects in its vicinity. It presumably did so by drawing from another dimension (possibly the pocket prison realm of Kosmos, or another pocket dimension).
He briefly wore a suit of miniature adamantium armor, designed by Pym, which could fire energy beams from its gauntlets, which caused other beings and objects to shrink out of existence (or at least into the Microverse). The suit's faceplate was made of conventional glass.
Dr. Nemesis had significantly above average intelligence, enabling him to understand and adapt the work of advanced intellects, such as Drs. Henry Pym and Earl Hawkins, although he could not develop such technology on his own. He also has some experience in disguise, or at least likes to change his appearance a lot.
