Synch could duplicate the powers and abilities of nearby mutants (and perhaps other super-humans) by synchronizing his aura with theirs. When using his powers, a multi-colored aura appeared around his body as a result of the energies he absorbed splitting the ambient light around him. Synch was also able to track other mutants by allowing his aura to lock on to bio-signatures. His aura would then extend in the general direction in which the mutant was located. The powers and abilities Synch duplicated faded some time after the superhuman he was in synch with left his vicinity. It had been theorized that, with practice, Synch would have been able to permanently retain powers and abilities he acquired in this manner.
