Nick can project and control a rare kind of energy. In addition to firing bursts of intense focused blasts, he can master whatever forces constitutes the energy's composition in such a way that he can manipulate, move, lift, hold, contain and even destroy almost any form of physical matter. He frequently carries himself and others on what can only be described as a energy laden flying platform. Its dimension, speed of movement, and direction of travel all controlled mentally by him.
Nick's energy powers originate from the same source as his sister, his niece, and also it would seem, Augustus' energenerator device. Yet each manifests that energy in unique manners.
Of the First Family crew, the character of Nikolai Furst is probably one of the least revealed, and least explored by their creative staff (to date).
In his younger, days he seemed fairly quick tempered and headstrong, such as his "forget you" sign to city officials during the Enelsian Invasion when they attempted to retake the land that the First Family's Headquarters sit on.
