Welcome to Animated Times everybody, if you know anything about the world of comics, It’s that filled with characters that have special powers and abilities.
We’re talking everything from gods and demigods to mutants, powerful aliens, and even mystics, and with such a long list of gifted and powerful beings also comes some incredible and powerful weapons.
So today we’re going to give those weapons their due and count down the top 10 most powerful weapons in all of comics.
There are obviously a crap-ton of powerful weapons and objects and comics not to mention magical relics and powered machines. But for our list, we stayed with weapons consistently or significantly associated with the character in battle, then from that list, we look for the most powerful and destructive.
10. GHOST RIDER’S CHAIN
This underworld empowered super weapon adds a lot of different options to Ghost Rider’s Arsenal.
With its primary power beam, when he uses it as a soul fire whip to thrash and burn the body and soul of his enemy, the change can also change its length based on mental commands from the rider. It can even separate into multiple parts to strike multiple targets at the same time.
Another thing I’ll mention is that Ghost Rider can use the chain to manipulate the mind and soul of anyone caught in it, similar to Wonder Woman’s Lasso. There’s much more, but overall it’s a vicious and powerful weapon that heavily adds the Ghost Rider’s fear factor.
9. EYE OF AGAMOTTO
In last year’s Doctor Strange movie the eye is shown to be an infinity stone, but in the comics, it’s one of the most powerful mystical artefacts in the Marvel Universe.
The off seen eye can only be used by the sorcerer, supreme and gives whoever holds the mantle incredible telepathic powers. It also emits a powerful mystical light that sees through nearly any illusion or deception.
Revealing the truth, the sorcerer supreme can also use it to open dimensional portals playback recent events and even enhance magical powers. It’s just an incredibly powerful weapon not to be taken lightly.
Witchblade is an ancient living weapon made up of the two primal forces of the universe, the darkness and the Angelas.
A sentient weapon the Witchblade chooses it’s host and being a male organism itself, it usually chooses a female. It’s also a shape-shifting weapon capable of taking many different forms commonly seen in battle as an armored gauntlet.
The Witchblade provides its host with superhuman strength, endurance and even a healing factor. It also covers the host’s body and armor, making them virtually invulnerable. The long list of serious weapons the Witchblade can create includes blades whips, swords energy blasts and even wings for flight, but being supernatural in origin, the Witchblade is no joke.
7. AQUAMAN’S TRIGENT
This magical weapon grants Aquaman rule of Atlantis and the seven seas, but it also places great magical powers at his disposal such as energy volts, force fields, control over the weather and the ability to conjure and manipulate water.
One of it’s greatest features, however, is that it’s virtually indestructible. It can pierce even through the most powerful beams in the DC universe. The greatest example of this is that his Trident was able to make Darkseid bleed. Indeed, one of the most powerful weapon in comics.
This Asgardian hammer was commissioned by Odin as a gift for Beta Ray Bill. After he defeated Thor in
hand-to-hand combat. It is almost an exact equal to Mjölnir including the characteristic that the Wielder must first be found worthy to even lift it.
In short, it grants Bill the power of weather control, lightning blast, flight and so on. Many arguments have been made that storm breaker in the hands of Beta Ray Bill is more dangerous than Mjölnir in the hands of Thor.
But while I probably wouldn’t agree with that storm breaker is an incredibly powerful weapon and worthy of a spot on our list.
5. THOR’S Mjölnir
I don’t need to say very much on this one because its history is also well known and goes all the way back to Norse mythology. the name Mjölnir means that which smashes, which is awesome.
It also makes all the sense in the world, for those deemed worthy, Mjölnir possesses a fraction of the Odin force and grants the bear the power of flight, lightning blast, horse-filled creation, energy absorption and dimensional transport to name a few.
Because of the connection, Thor has with his hammer you can also throw it and call it back to him from great distances, not to mention how he flat-out uses it to bludgeon enemies with his immense force in the hands of Thor.
4. SUPERMAN’S SWORD
If you just said to yourself Superman’s what? don’t feel bad as this is not a well-known weapon in comics but incredibly powerful nonetheless, the sword first appeared in Superman Annual #10 in 1984 and was formed with a big bang billions of years ago.
It’s just a through space for aeons before finally being called to earth through a psychic connection with Superman’s father Jonathan Kent.
Once the sword arrived it immediately bonded to Superman making them essentially all-powerful, but after the Man of Steel began to feel that the godlike power was stripping him from his humanity, he gave up the sword for good.
Not much else is known about the sustaining powerful weapon, but considering the level of power, Superman already possesses, especially Pre-Crisis Superman! it’s enough to give it a strong position on this list of powerful weapons.
3. THE ODINSWORD
The granddaddy of all Asgardian weapons, The Odinsword first introduced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in “Journey into mystery” issue 117.
The massive Odinsword is so powerful that even taking it out of its sheath in dangers the entire universe. Again! that’s just quality craftsmanship.
Anyway, to give you an idea of the immense power of this weapon, it’s only been used a couple of times in comics since it’s creation in 1965 and one of those times was the battles of Celestials. So any weapon that only gets taken out when space gods attack is pretty much a no-brainer.
2. INFINITY GAUNTLET
This is another weapon that I don’t need to give much explanation for thanks in large part to the MCU. After a series of events that gave Thanos possession of all the Infinity Gems, he combined them into one powerful gauntlet, granting the wearer simultaneous and nearly unlimited control over time, space, consciousness, Souls, the powers of the universe and reality itself.
Yep! that’s pretty much everything at one point towards the end of the Thanos quest storyline, The Living Tribunal determined that the gauntlet was too powerful to ever be used by anyone.
The gauntlet has been used a couple more times since then, and we’re about to get our first live action look at the power of this beast in the hands of Thanos in this year’s Infinity War.
1. WHITE LANTERN’S POWER RING
White Lantern power ring introduced during DC’s blackest night event.
The White Lantern rings are sentient and the rarest of all the power rings, which is a good thing because these rings not only grants the Lantern the combined power of all the other rings in the color spectrum.
It also has the ability to control the life equation if you’re not exactly sure what that means. It gives the Lantern Godlike power to create life itself.
In terms of power, there really isn’t anywhere else to go from there, you’re pretty much an unstoppable force which in my opinion makes the white Lantern ring the most powerful weapon in comics.
Now that you have our list, be sure to tell us what you think the most powerful weapons are in the comment section.
