Due to ionic energy received from Atlas, Riordan regained the use of her legs and seemed to possess superhuman strength, durability, endurance, agility and reflexes.
During the time of their bonding Riordan could turn herself into a female form resembling Atlas's. She possessed similar powers as Atlas except for being able to increase in height. She could also use ionic energy for blasts, flying and forcefields. She could also communicate with Josten's essence.
Dallas is an exceptional acrobat, martial artist, and swordswoman; she is trained in detective work and weapons expertise, and is a reasonably skilled sketch artist.
Dallas joined the Thunderbolts as Vantage and chose to remain on the team to watch Zemo, who she could not trust. Eventually Helmut was scarred by a deranged Moonstone when trying to save Captain America. The Thunderbolts briefly disbanded and Erik asked Hank Pym to strip him of his new powers. Dallas and Erik broke up and Dallas took a job working for homeland security. Erik soon rejoined the Thunderbolts despite being powerless. After an encounter with Genis-Vell, Erik became enraged and tapped into his ionic powers which somehow left Dallas paralyzed again.
Dallas is currently a full time member of the CSA and even helped organize a battle between the Thunderbolts and the New Avengers. Dallas and the CSA were working with Zemo to save the world from Grandmaster and the enactment of the Guardian Protocols. Dallas did not trust Helmut, but gave him the benefit of the doubt. Altered again by the Wellspring, during a battle against the Grandmaster in which he had to surrender his powers temporarily to Zemo, Josten was left stuck in a giant form, too heavy even to move and communicate. However he was able to send back some ionic energy to Dallas, restoring her legs. Dallas was later part of a senate subcommittee that interviewed Norman Osborn, she felt that Norman Osborn's success leading the Thunderbolts validated the CSA's appointment of him as leader. Norman disagreed and accused the CSA of being compromised by the Skrull Invasion and that some of their members were human collaborators.
