- Colarvian Infiltration Suit: In an effort to protect herself, Aviva put on a shadow suit which attached itself to her skin. Since then she has been unable to remove the skin without extreme pain.
- Metamorphosis: Shadow Thief can transform her limbs into weapons or create tentacles from out of her back.
- Intangibility: Shadow Thief's skin is like a living shadow. She cannot be harmed and doesn't feel physical pain. However, this intangibility does not appear to extend to Red Lantern blood plasma, though it does include the light expended by their rings.
- Teleportation: Shadow Thief can teleport through the "shadow realm" which she can access at any time through any regular shadow and appear through any other shadow in seconds.
- Interrogation: Aviva is a trained spy, she mentions that although her contemporaries use interrogation as an art form she prefers to use it as a last resort.
- Stealth: As a trained spy, Aviva has had years of experience in getting by unnoticed when she wishes it.
- Shadow Thief was created by Gardner Fox and Joe Kubert, first appearing in Brave and the Bold #36. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Shadow Thief first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Savage Hawkman #17 by Tom DeFalco and Joe Bennett.
