Soon Eren discovers he has many superpowers and hence, he becomes the antagonist.

Mikasa Ackerman

Later on in the series it is revealed that Mikasa’s father had Eldian bloodline which was worked upon for creation of strong soldiers who had similar powers just like Titans. It is also discovered that the offspring in that bloodline also inherit some of those superpowers naturally.
