If we can say in one breath which weapon is in first place, we find that Thor’s famous hammer Mjolnir is only in 4th place
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) currently consists of 29 feature films and seven Disney+ series, plus more than a dozen new projects.
That’s a huge amount of content, as this universe is populated by a variety of superheroes and villains who have different powers, but also nearly indestructible weapons.
After the end of Phase 4, it’s time to give an overview, via slashfilm.com, of the most powerful weapons so far, which gave their bearers unlimited power, but were also able to defeat them. In some cases, the weapons were even able to change reality as we know it. Here is the ranking of weapons created by the publication Slash Film.
14. Spider-man’s web launchers
These weapons, which even Iron Man was impressed by, are able to bind enemies faithfully, but also let Spider-Man fly through the skyscrapers of New York.
13. Cybernetic arm of the Winter Soldier
Armless and suffering from amnesia due to the crash at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, the later Winter Soldier was preserved in a cryogenic coma and equipped with a mechanical arm that amplifies his strength many times over. In close combat, the Winter Warrior is a match for Captain America thanks to his weapon arm. He can tear off car doors and smash walls as if they were playing cards.
12. Captain America’s Vibranium Shield
It deflects bullet hits, grenades, Iron Man attacks and even a blow from Thor’s famous hammer Mjolnir. It proved to be the best defensive weapon in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, when Captain America falls from a dizzying height, he lands on his own shield, which leaves him unharmed.
11. Yondu’s Yaka Arrow
Yondu (Michael Rooker) is an alien mercenary in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2; he can control an indestructible arrow with his mind, but also with certain pipes. Controlled by Yondu, the arrow flies and takes out an entire battalion of enemies, weaving through bodies, armor and even space shuttles like cheese.
10. Black Panther Costume
T’Challa’s suit is made of vibranium, which makes it virtually indestructible against physical blows or energy blasts. The suit is also designed to be resistant to radioactivity. In addition, the suit is a product of nanotechnology and can regenerate. The Vibranium claws can cut through all materials except adamantium, rivaling Wolverine. The suit absorbs the attacker’s energy and redirects it back at the opponent with increased force, knocking him to the ground.
9. The suit of Iron Man
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are more than 50 models of the suit, as it is constantly being perfected by Tony Stark. The most impressive is the model used in Avengers: Endgame, writes slashfilm.com – as a product of nanotechnology, the suit’s capabilities are practically limitless: so Tony Stark can basically steal the Infinity Stones from Thanos and save half the galaxy.
8. Pym’s particle
Without being a weapon themselves, they make objects and people grow or shrink, weakening the force of enemy attacks. Also, these particles are the key to time travel in Avengers: Endgame. With the combined efforts and ingenuity of Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Scott Lang, the Avengers use these particles to travel to the Quantum Realm and back to extract the Infinity Stones. We will see more about what these particles are capable of in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the prelude to Phase 5.
7. The terrible darkhold tome
For hundreds of years, scholars, heroes, and villains alike have searched for the full text of this terrible tome: the Book of the Damned, written by the ancient god Chthon. Now, at last, one of the greatest wizards of the multiverse has discovered the Dark Hoard, and Chthon has found it. To save all of existence, Scarlet Witch must bring together the world’s greatest heroes … And unleash her dark side. Because the only way to deal with the forces the Dark Grail has unleashed is to go insane! Thanos, megalomaniacal villain who has killed half the population of the universe.
6. The ten rings
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Marvel’s first martial arts film, features some of the best choreographed fight scenes in the entire MCU. In addition, the titular rings give the wearer magical powers. The powers they can transfer to the owner are still a mystery, SlashFilm writes.
They are recreated by an alien race, the Axonn-Karr (Makluan) from the planet Maklu- IV, whose individuals are a kind of reptilian dragons. This race invented them and used them as a source of energy for their interstellar ships. Wenwu, Shang-chi’s father, looks like 40 years old, although he is thousands of years old. The 10 rings seem to slow down the ageing process. However, they cannot protect the wearer from mortal wounds or guarantee immortality. The rings give the wearer superhuman strength and attack opponents with a deadly blast of energy. More information about each ring can be found here.
5. The sword of Gorr, “the one who slaughters the gods”.
The “Necrosword” was introduced to us in Thor: Love and Thunder. It is a sword that gives its wielder the power to kill gods. It is created by the death goddess Hela from obsidian, enriched with the power she draws from Asgard. It corrupts the user’s mind and body, but also allows travelling between dimensions and summoning armies of monsters from the shadow world.
4. Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer
One of the most powerful weapons in Norse mythology, Mjolnir is said to be capable of levelling mountains. According to the legends of Marvel comics, the enchanted hammer was made from a neutron star and first used by Odin, the king of Asgard. In order to obtain the hammer from Odin, Thor was put through rigorous tests by him to prove to the king that his son deserved to possess such a powerful weapon. The hammer with unlimited powers can hit no matter how hard, never misses its target and never flies so far that it does not find its way back to Thor.
Moreover, the legendary Mjolnir has survived gigantic planet-destroying explosions and is powerful enough to destroy an entire galaxy or even a large part of the universe.
In addition, the hammer gives its owner powers that allow him to control certain forces of the universe, such as gravity, weather or the electromagnetic spectrum.
3. Storm breaker axe
This axe, made from Groot’s arm, has caused much debate among fans about whether it is more powerful than Mjolnir or not. From the moment he held it, Stormbreaker saved Thor’s life and almost went supernova.
Aside from his abilities to save a god from death, Stormbreaker seems to be more than Thor’s lifesaver. Stormbreaker has the power to enable travel to the Nine Realms, writes comicbook.com. In Thor’s hands, Stormbreaker also managed to absorb the full shock of all six Infinity Stones at once. And not one, not two – but all six of the universe’s most powerful tools, or weapons, depending on how you look at them. Not only that, but they could have severed the head of the Mad Titan (Josh Brolin) himself if Thor had wanted to. Only Thor made the mistake of aiming elsewhere.
2. The tesseract /space stone
The Tesseract is a blue cube charged with energy that practically turns Carol (Brie Larson) into Captain Marvel. We know that some of the strongest connecting threads between the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are the famous Infinity Stones or jewels that the antagonists of the Marvel productions always try to get their hands on and use for their evil plans. One of these stones is the Tesseract/Space Stone.
The Space Stone is the tesseract from Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. In the second movie, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) uses the Tesseract to allow the Kitauri to invade and cause a rift in the space-time continuum.
At the end of the Captain Marvel movie, we see something that could be completely new: Carol herself becomes a kind of superlight machine that transports the Skrull refugees in a space station to a faraway place.
1. Infinity Gauntlet
Without the six jewels scattered around the universe, the Infinity Gauntlet is a mere accessory that becomes the most powerful weapon in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe once Thanos attaches all the Infinity Stones to it. Each stone offers new powers, and together they give their owner omnipotence and omniscience. Hence the obsession of the titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) to obtain all the stones, in one of the most ambitious and destructive plans ever forged in the history of comics. The gauntlet is a kind of universal remote control that allows Thanos to choose which stone to use at will.
The six jewels control space, mind, reality, power, soul and time. Basically, the owner of the Time Stone can speed up the flow of time or rewind history to the point in time he wants to explore.
The space stone is the Tesseract from Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. Colleagues at The Verge have identified the red reality stone with the Aether in the middle of the story of Thor: The Dark World. The purple Power Stone takes center stage in Guardians of the Galaxy and remains in the care of Nova Corps, the intergalactic political force. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the yellow Mind Stone will be the primary means of creating Vision (Paul Bettany).
The green Soul Stone completes the list, and the orange Time Stone is also the most mysterious of them all. In the Marvel comics, it has been possessed by Thor, Iron Man and Black Widow in succession. The six stones are reunited in Thanos’ Gauntlet, with which he destroys half the universe.
