It's from the 90s, and it's one of those writers like John Peel, or Christopher Pike, or someone like that. I keep thinking it was called something similar to Outer Limits, but that doesn't work.

I can't remember a ton of specifics, but there were a bunch of characters, and they all developed different powers. One kid became a supreme warrior, one was suddenly telepathic, and the one I remember best is a kid who got the short straw - suddenly he found he could speak all known languages (and a bunch more that weren't human.) He said something like, “You guys are all awesome and I'm over here being Translator Boy”.

I think their powers were because their parents were aliens?

I was reading these in the 90s, same time period as Animorphs, Diadem, Fear Street, etc.

Might be the Mindwarp series by Chris Archer, the kids all inherit abilities from their parents and have silver blood and stuff. Ethan becomes a super warrior, Toni can control lightning/electricity, another can see the future, sort of.
