  • Like most Mysteron copies, his original body was destroyed and then retrometabolised to a Mysteron agent. However, unlike most Mysteron agents, Captain Scarlet retains his original memories and personality, whilst retaining all powers of Mysteron copies, including:
    • The ability to regenerate damaged tissues (Retrometabolism)
    • X-ray photographs will not show bones, only a normal face
    • The inability to be photographed normally, will only show a blank outline

Also, at least for the first few episodes, Captain Scarlet would become nauseous in the presence of another Mysteron agent; this ability mysteriously disappeared soon after.
