Khan did have mental powers. Don't forget how he opened that door from inside his cabin in Space Seed.
With his bare hands, unless I'm completely misremembering.
Yeah, after doing that deep breath, meditation thing.
We'd seen Khan do that once or twice previously, and also seen similar gestures made by his followers upon their release from suspended animation. I don't see it as being indicative of any mental powers, though; seems more the sort of thing an athlete or acrobat or martial artist might do in preparation before performing a feat of strength or skill - a quick discipline to focus or center the concentration.
