Powerful Items from the Comics Multiverse

This list contains an overall look at Powerful Items in no particular order other than I try to group them by "type" and what they are made of. An example would be Thor's Hammer and Uru Metal. Well, they are close together. They ARE NOT ranked by Power. I have also broken this list into Marvel, DC and Other. Check those lists out for more specific by "Universe" and feel free to make recommendations, but please do so in those specific lists. Have a nice day and enjoy.

List items

  • The Beatrice Medallion was given to Belasco to enable the ascension of the Elder Gods. In Illyana Rasputin (Magik) he found the intended, pure, victim.

  • Magical Armor worn mainly by Illyana Rasputin and Amanda Sefton.

    Eldritch Armor is armor that is summoned whenever Illyana Rasputin uses her Soulsword.

  • A magical weapon created from the purest part of Illyana Rasputin's soul during her stay in Limbo.

    The Soulsword

    The Soulsword is the ultimate embodiment of Illyana's magical strength. Forged during a time of great need and despair. Illyana was desperate to find a way to free herself of Belasco and find a way to leave Limbo.

  • Stormbreaker is the enchanted hammer that is carried by Beta Ray Bill. It's enchantments give Beta Ray the same powers as Thor.

  • The magic hammer wielded by Thor that grants him many of his powers and abilities. Mjolnir can only be wielded by those that are deemed "worthy".

  • The highly durable, mystical Asgardian Ore best known for making up Thor's hammer.

    Properties & Characteristics

    Uru is a metal that is highly immalleable. It resembles stone but it also seems to have metallic properties. Its luster has been described as "badly wrought iron". It often requires extreme methods for objects to be forged from it (i.e. the heart of a star or an enchanted forge). But because of this, weapons that was made by this metal, especially the enchanted ones, are resilient to most forms of damage.

    Uru was easy to enchant. It seems able to store most energies, particularly magic. When Uru is enchanted, it becomes much more durable. Uru is not only easy to enchant, but also absorbs magic like a sponge, redirecting it and enhancing the natural attributes of his wielder.

    The symbiotic relationship between Uru and its wielder works both ways: a mystical user, such as Thor, can lend to the Uru in his weapon his own strength, in the process making the metal stronger and more resilient.

    It is unique to the Asgard dimension. Due to this and its extreme resilience and ability to hold enchantment, it is often forged into the finest weapons for the warriors of Asgard.

  • The Witchblade is the offspring of the primal forces of the universe. The Darkness and the Angelus. It is male and almost always chooses a female host.It is semi organic and reacts supernaturally to threats. It is able to grant its host a variety of weapons and can heal the host.

  • The Angelus is the Primal Force of Light that represents totalitarian order and purity. She is engaged in an eternal war with her polar opposite, the Darkness. However, the two forces are balanced by their offspring, the Witchblade.

  • The Darkness power allows the wielder to create anything they desire.

    This includes everything from solid constructs such as armor and weaponry to living, sentient beings controlled by the Darkness. One of the most common manifestations of the darkness includes darkness armor around Jackie as well as demon-like creatures to do his bidding. A primary weakness of the Darkness is that it only functions in the absence of light. When light hits anything created of the Darkness it vanishes, and Jackie cannot access his power in the light. This leaves Jackie particularly vulnerable to attack during the day.

    Jackie, and all wielders of the Darkness, pass on the Darkness to their heirs through sex. Upon the conception of their child they die, so males in Jackie's family generally die during intercourse. This is quite the burden on Jackie, who lost his virginity at 14 to a female police officer on the interrogation desk.

  • Formerly known as a Qwardian ring, this extremely powerful object is comparable to a Green Lantern Ring.

    In Brightest Day #0, it was revealed that the white power battery had landed in Silver City, New Mexico. It was found by Sinestro. In Green Lantern #53, the white power battery remains unmoved.

  • The Phoenix Blade contains a portion of the Phoenix Force within it and grants its wielder immeasurable power.

  • Two swords forged by Muramasa, the first one contains a piece of his own soul and the second one contains part of Wolverine's.

    Black Blade:

    The first Muramasa Blade(the Black Blade) was created centuries ago by Muramasa. When Muramasa forged the weapon, he literally placed a piece of his own soul into it. In this act, the blade became filled with mystical powers. As a result, whoever wielded this deadly weapon would be granted superhuman abilities. The wielder would then possess invulnerability and superhuman strength. However, these abilities came at a price. If the wielder of the Muramasa Blade possesses it for too long, then he/she will become overwhelmed by Muramasa's mad soul.

    Wolverine's Blade:

    Muramasa created the seconed blade for Wolverine. Muramasa did this because he wanted to exact revenge upon the people who killed his wife, Itzu. This blade is made of the same unknown material as the first, and it is just as indestructible. Unlike the first blade, however, the second blade can prevent healing factors. For example, when Wolverine wielded his Muramasa blade against Sabretooth, the blade's powers inhibited the use of Creed's (Sabretooth) healing abilities. The blade was broken and Daken's wrist claws when coated with the metal. Wolverine removed Daken's Muramasa claws and buried them with the Muramasa blade in an unknown location.

    Stormbringer is a tremendously powerful sword. Like the Ebony Blade from Marvel comics it can cut through most substances and can withstand any impact, along with that the vampiric blade can drain the soul of those it kills. To be more precise a single cut from the blade is enough for it to devour the soul of the wounded person. Along with that some amount of vital energy is transferred through the blade and into the user. Under a weak user the can control his of her actions and even the strongest wielders may sometimes encounter a moment of mental weakness which the blade will use to its advantages.

    The blade itself has a "brother", or as close as a weapon can get, Mournblade. Mournblade, is capable of all the same actions as Stormbringer, the only difference it wielder were weaker.
