Powers and Abilities
- Super Strength: Hank has the power to lift and carry heavy objects and can bend solid metal and smash a cement block as if it were nothing.
- Flight: He is able to fly faster than sound. The exact limit is unknown, although he can make it to Peru and back in a matter of minutes. However, he has to say "Thunder Man, away!" before taking off into the air, but he is seen flying out of the house through the ceiling and always makes a big hole in the ceiling and the roof, which causes some plaster to fall.
- Super Durability: He can smash through thick objects, such as the roof to the house, without damaging his body or experiencing any pain. In the episode You've Got Fail, He mentioned being able to fly into the sun, but was still susceptible to poison ivy. Also in A Hero Is Born, when Barb was giving birth and released large amounts of lightning it was enough to knock him back, repeated knocks made him delirious. Showing he can be hurt with enough force.

- Thundersense: He has the ability to sense danger before it occurs. However it is not always specific enough to tell what the danger is. He told Phoebe that he got his Thundersense when he was 12 years old.
- True Sight: As a superhero, he has the power to see and hear ghosts. (Haunted Thundermans)
- Thundertanium: In Blue Detective, he was unable to burst through the ceiling when Max lined it with thundertanium. A metal that he cannot seem to break.
