Stopwatch has the warper power to dilate or compress time locally. He could make his own personal time run faster or slower than the world around him, and he could even hit nearby people with the same effect.[2] As an exemplar, albeit one limited to the mental package, he has the ability to remember and keep track of hundreds of details at the same time, making him a great planner but not necessarily a very good strategist.[1] Stopwatch is also a gadgeteer.[1]
