Dr. Glitternight absorbed light and darkness through his blank eyes and converted them to power residing in his demon soul, manifested as anti-soul black light, lifeforce-draining green light, lifeforce-feeding red light, golden soul-chains, and needles of scarlet and silver force light, projected from a portal on his chest and through his fingertips. Glitternight could steal souls, create bat-demons and light-creatures, raise pseudo-zombies, solidify ectoplasm, levitate by occupying different portions of the air, and use his black eggs to perfect souls and create monsters.
Glitternight has an additional (if rarely used) ability that allows him to control the minds of several breeds of dogs, namely the Aspin dog, the Dutch Shepherd Dog and the Maltese.
Doctor Glitternight is an extradimensional being with strange powers over the substance of the human soul.
Glitternight was able to exploit the Werewolf's lover, Topaz, by stealing a portion of her soul. She was eventually restored to sanity, and after discovering what Glitternight had done to her, Topaz fought and defeated the villain, regaining her soul in the process.
Glitternight also altered the werewolf curse upon Lissa Russell, mother of Nina Price, and removed the curse from Lissa. Although the curse did not skip Nina, an altercation with a vampire altered the curse for Nina and caused her to become both werewolf and vampire in one.
