Nunez can grant superhuman powers to others through drawing iconic symbols. This is usually done through tattooing images onto others. These tattoos then give whatever power Nunez believes them to bestow. However, each tattoo drains a little bit of Nunez's will as each tatoo and corresponding power is an extension of his will. The upper limits of Nunez's powers are not defined. He was able to give multiple powers to nearly one hundred individuals and empower a reasonable facsimile or approximation of the Phoenix Force before falling into a coma. These superpowered tattoos include:
- Rose Floral Scent from a rose tattoo on the lower back o an unnamed young woman.
- Extreme Nausea and Vomiting from a biohazard symbol on Ink's right hand.
- Super Strength from lines similar to the banding on Colossus' organic steel felsh on Ink's left forearm and hand.
- Combustion from an "explosive" symbol tattooed on Ink's right bicep and on Carlos Rodriguez's left fist.
- Telepathy from two lightning bolt tattoos on Ink's temples.
- Self-Propelled Flight from feathered wings on Ink's back.
- Protective Force Field from a shield tattoo on Carlos Rodriguez's right antecubital forearm.
- Enhanced Speed and Razor-Sharp Claws from cheetah-style spots over the torso of one of the Y-Men.
- Optic Blast from discharge marks around the left eye of one of the Y-Men.
- Enhanced Agility from webbing patterns, reminiscent of Spider-Man, on the elbows of one of the Y-Men.
- Bullet Discharge from a tattoo of a 9mm on the right hand of one of the Y-Men.
- Breathing Fire from a dragon tattoo on the chest and arms of one of the Y-Men.
- Concussive Discharge from triangular tatoos on the forearms, wrists, and hands of one of the Y-Men.
