Player Frame with Supercharge 35% filled

Supercharge builds while performing weapon attacks and increases with each hit level on the hit counter. The Supercharge level persists while changing PVE zones but resets when entering PVP arenas or logging out and back in. It is used to unleash extremely effective powers. The Supercharge level is indicated by a yellow-red bar under the player's blue power bar. A Supercharge ability will have a circle around it indicating the amount of charge needed before it is available. The Supercharge level will build at level 1, but players do not gain access to any supercharge abilities until level 9.

*Although it technically only costs 1000 Supercharge (and the circle indicator around the ability also indicates so), Vindictive can only be activated when you have at least 2000 Supercharge (as the 1000 per-second cost is also immediately deducted when you activate it).

Supercharge Generator Powers[]

A Supercharge Generator power builds a large amount of Supercharge (estimated 180 per cast, or a bit over 1/56 of the full bar per cast). Power of Aten passive ability from Ally: Black Adam can passively increase the Supercharge gained from Supercharge Generators by 15% - 35%.
