Powers & Weapons: Banshee has superhuman strength, agility, speed, durability, and a high degree of resistance to physical and energy-based attacks. His highly destructive hypersonic wails, sonic screams, and sonic yells can force a person into a comatose state, as long as he can see them and knows their true name. As the Avenger of Blood, Banshee carries two mystical daggers that can wound or kill, based upon the person's sins. Banshee is also able to use his sound/sonic-based abilities to become invisible.
