Original Atlanteans, as Plato described them, were simply humans who lived on particularly fertile island-continent before its sinking, although as the royal family were direct descendants of Poseidon they may have had some divine blood and as such may have inherited various divine powers.
Later, fictional, Atlanteans can be divided into two categories:
Advanced Atlanteans had advanced technology (at least compared to others) or even super-science, and were often mentally more advanced as well, possessing mental abilities. This variety may have been aliens or has moved away from Earth.
Aquatic Atlanteans survived the sinking by adapting to their new environment, outside to this they often have abilities related to water and commanding aquatic life. They tend to have more physical powers, such as superior strength and endurance.
