Teleportation, ability to create flaming constructs (most commonly a billy club)
Reilly Tyne is the son of Ben Reilly, the clone of Spider-Man. Before he reached his teens, his inherited powers began to kick in, but brought with them clone degeneration. Kaine, the degenerated first clone of Peter Parker, found him, and placed him within a regeneration tank to slow the process. Trying to kill two birds with one stone, and resurrect Daredevil - who had previously died saving Kaine - while healing Tyne, he summoned the demon Zarathos. Zarathos attempted to possess Tyne, but he was saved by the soul of Daredevil, who drove out Zarathos, although both Daredevil's soul and a piece of the demon remained within Tyne, and he was left with a demonic appearance and certain demonic abilities.
One of the side-effects is that he resembles a demonic, corpse-like figure twice his age (he was originally thirteen, but as Darkdevil is twenty-six) if he ever uses his powers. This would account for his mischievous, Puck or Hanuman-like attitude.
Through meditation and concentration, he eventually learned to project a human appearance - but he now looked to be in his twenties, almost twice his actual age. Following in both of Daredevil's paths, he studied law and became an attorney, while taking on a costume bearing a resemblance to Daredevil's and using his demonic abilities to fight crime as Darkdevil.
