About Benny LaFitte
As a vampire, Benny LaFitte possesses the requisite powers, such as super strength, super speed, and super senses. His abilities, as displayed on Supernatural, became further developed during his time spent in Purgatory. He can kill up to six vampires by himself, although he accomplishes this with some degree of difficulty. His regenerative powers can heal wounds as long as he consumes enough human blood. He is immortal, as long as he isn’t affected by a vampire’s weakness.
He still has his weaknesses, though. These weaknesses include Vamptonite, which is human blood that contains DNA altered by Leviathan corn syrup. The effect on him and other vampires are like ingesting a powerful acid. Just like other vampires, Benny can be killed by decapitation. Beheading was how Dean killed him when he asked to return to Purgatory. Drinking a dead man’s blood can also incapacitate him, although it’s not potent enough to kill vampires.
