Superpowers are traits, features or skills that are beyond normal human ability. That is, a character with a superpower can do things that normal human beings can't do.
There are several superpowers on The Thundermans because it is a sci-fi show about a family of superheroes. People with superpowers tend to be superheroes or supervillains depending on whether they use their powers for good or for evil.
It is revealed in The Haunted Thundermans that all superheroes/villains have the ability of True Sight which allows them to see and hear ghost.
This page provides a summary of all the superpowers that appeared on the show.

Max and Phoebe agree to do fist bumps every time since this power activates when they every their hands make contact with each other (i.e. shaking hands or holding hands).
The Thundermans Power Swap
In the special, Thundermans: Secret Revealed, The Thundermans' powers are accidentally swapped when Max restores their powers after having temporarily taken them away with Dark Mayhem's orb. The Thunder Twins are not affected by the switch because they had their powers at the time of the restoration. This was a temporary effect and it's reversed in season 4.
The temporary power assignments were:
- Hank – Electrokinesis - previously Barb's power.
- Barb – Super-Speed - previously Billy's power.
- Nora – Teleportation - previously Chloe's power.
- Billy – Heat Vision - previously Nora's power
- Chloe – Flight and Super Strength - previously Hank's powers.
- Dark Mayhem has the world's first power-sapping orb which can be used to take away superpowers from a person.
- The Thundermans refer to people with superpowers as "supes" and normal humans as "non-supes."
- Most of the people with superpowers live in Metroburg where powers may be used openly in public.
- Phoebe and Max have the same powers due to them being twins and superhero twins have the same powers.
- The Metroburg superhero Dr. Ouch has a Power Scan device that predicts what superpower a super baby like Chloe would have.
