Will antimatter objects show superconducting characteristics unlike their matter counterparts?

The idea pretty much explains it all, but I've been wondering for a while whether matter and antimatter have more opposites of each other than just charge. Can anyone who excels in this field help me with this question?

    However I can inform you that there is just not the positron (which holds anti matter charge) but that there's also at least also the Antiproton and the Antineutron and therefore naturally every quark has it's anti-matter opposite.

    Check the Wiki on Antiparticles http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiparticle

    Oh and I notice that you're new here, welcome! But TED is generally not a very good place to ask these super scientific questions, you'll mostly get very few responses or inaccurate speculations.

    Instead when asking about real science I recommend http://www.reddit.com/r/askscience
