Kratos's powers and abilities

Kratos is a natural born demigod, his father being the mighty Zeus himself. This heritage allows him to possess a number physical attributes and powers. Kratos possesses an unknown level superhuman strength. His strength seems to fluctuate according to the situation that requires it. He can go from having enough strength to open certain doors one minute to having the strength to combat beings of massive strength and size the next. His greatest feats of strength include wrestling the mighty Hydra into submission, going toe to toe with Hercules, resisting being crushed between the fingers of the Titans Atlas and Cronos, tossing the Colossus of Rhodes after it attempted to crush Kratos under it’s foot, and overpowering Zeus himself. Kratos also has a decent degree of durability, being able to survive attacks and situations that would easily kill a normal man. Such feats of durability include falling from great heights and walking away unharmed, getting crushed, stabbed, beaten, blasted, and burned by various enemies and traps he’s encountered. Kratos also has the ability to sense incoming danger and react quite fast. Under normal conditions, Kratos has the speed of an Olympic athlete, but when possessing the Boots of Hermes {see Weapons and Equipment}, his speed increases. Kratos has superhuman stamina. In fact, Kratos has never been sown to tire at all. Kratos is a master of weaponry, able to pick up any weapon and use it like an expert. Kratos is excellent in the arts of war, able to execute brutal strategies to win almost any battle. He has shown to be a capable magic user, but only in offensive spells {see Magic}. After Ares' defeat, Kratos became the new God of War. The only power shown as the God of War was the ability to grow in size, but it is implied that Kratos could have done far more. Kratos also possessed the power of Hope, a unique and undefined power that, when tapped into, allowed Kratos to become immune to Zeus’ attacks, and was able to hit Zeus while in an ethereal form.
