As a Super, Meta Man was known to be indecisive, albeit very compassionate and deeply committed to his hero work. Alongside Mr. Incredible, Meta Man was also known to be a rival of the supervillain Baron Von Ruthless, his agency voice recordings being damaged as a result of the latter's interference. He had been put under NSA review as the leader of "Meta Group", overseeing the actions of every other superhero team in existence.
Meta Man's superpowers included flight, super strength, x-ray vision, magnetic manipulation, sonic screaming, teleportation, partial invisibility and communication with aquatic mammals.
Besides sharing a common enemy, he was also a good friend of Mr. Incredible's, being seen at his and Elastigirl's wedding, alongside Universal Man, Stormicide, Thunderhead, Stratogale, Splashdown, Dynaguy, Frozone, Edna Mode and Rick Dicker, celebrating once the two were married.
For all his great power, Meta Man was still one of several Supers to suffer from an unfortunate "Suit Malfunction", dying when his cape snagged in an elevator shaft whilst lifting an express elevator to safety.
Judging by his host of potent superpowers, high power status and his threat rating of 9.6 (The highest of any Super), he is likely to have been the strongest superhero of his time, and quite possibly of all time.
- Meta Man appears to be inspired by DC Comics hero Superman. Like Superman, Meta Man wears an oversized single letter emblem and has a wide variety of powers including flight and incredible strength.
