Killer Crocs Powers and Abilities
The disease that Killer Croc is afflicted with seems to be some form of regressive atavism, meaning he has inherited some of the traits of ancestral species of the human race. His skin has hardened to the point where it is invulnerable to most forms of abrasion and even low caliber weapons fired from a distance. He possesses superhuman strength and he is far stronger than Batman, whose strength is at the Olympic athlete level. A side effect of this condition seems to be that over time the primal reptilian part of his brain gains more control of his psyche. His Speed and agility have also risen to superhuman levels. He can also heal at a much faster rate than normal humans, similar to that of a reptile.
Croc has some experience at street fighting and wrestling, but he is not quite as proficient as Batman or Nightwing. He is a high school drop out, but has proven to be moderately capable of organizing thugs in small-time racketeering operations. He is usually hired by other villains as muscle or as a hitman, as he is at least intelligent enough to follow instructions. Croc also is very skilled at swimming aided by his reptilian genetics.
Superhuman: Killer Croc's mutated strength level is many times greater than that of a normal human. Over the years, as Croc's body continued to mutate, his strength levels increased accordingly. Sometimes, he was even protrayed as being dinosaur like, with a tail and a reptilian snout to boot.
