'''Hyperadrenal''' Alphas possess extraordinary physical abilities that are activated by elevated levels of adrenaline. When hyperadrenals are in the "zone" they have high thresholds for pain and are unstoppable but when the adrenaline rush ends, hyper-adrenals become listless and physically drained. This power is comparable to a mild form of Intermittent Explosive Disorder, an genetic condition that allows the carrier to temporarily unlock the body's natural safety limits via trance or during extreme stress. And even when they are not "amped" up with adrenaline, Hyperadrenals are immensely strong, as their physiology requires them to be able to hold the strain when using their abilities.

The constant dosing of endorphins effectively make hyperadrenals a type of addict. This can lead to quick tempers, high self-confidence (which can make teamwork difficult), and a reliance on their alpha ability even when real danger is not present.

Health problems can also arise because of the consistent constriction of smooth muscle that lines most arterioles. This can lead to damage of the cardiovascular system, leading to heart conditions and hypertension.

* ''Super-Speed:'' This mostly takes a backseat to his strength, but the same adrenaline boost that makes them strong lets Alphas with this ability run like a track star. They can run extremely fast, but still slower than that of an [[Hyper-Accelerator]] Alpha.

* ''Pain Suppression:'' All alphas who possess this ability are unable to feel pain while the ability is active, making them virtually unstoppable, but the pain from the injuries comes back when the ability wears off.
