It's not what you have, it how you use it! At least that's how I rule it.
The distilled argument is that most comic book characters are drawn in an attractive way, but only a few use their attractiveness specifically in interaction skills. More specifically, the Attractive Advantage gives a Deception and Persuasion circumstance bonus to people who could be attracted to your gender, so you can make those susceptible targets more likely to believe your lies or be more friendly with you. If you can do that with everybody, you just have high skills and probably a high Presence, but if you mainly do that with only a portion of the population, or it's significantly more effective on them in particular, then it's the Attractive advantage.
I don't know Ultra-boy, but I would have to assume that if he's been given Attractive because he successfully flirts with women, gaining their trust.
