Short and sweet:
CoH had inherent powers which were abilities every hero/villain had such as a sprint, walk, brawl (very weak punches to use when your abilities were all on cooldown) rest, slightly higher jump, so on..
If you wanna see them all:
I'd like to know if such things are planned to be in the game.
Revenge is motivation enough. At least it's honest...
