The DCEU has given us a pretty good weapons arsenal. And many of them like Aquaman’s Trident and Wonder Woman’s Lasso deserve to be acknowledged.
The Black Manta Suit
David Kane is given the Hydro-Pulse Rifle and access to Atlantean steel by Oceanmaster. He used the technology to create a super durable suit of armor that can hover and fly and grants Kane super-strength. The suit comes laced with incredible firepower. It was able to pierce the skin of a high-born Atlantean like Arthur Curry. By incorporating the firing mechanism into its back and legs, the suit allows Kane to achieve a level of near-superhuman speed as well. It can also survive tremendous pressure underwater.
Armored Batman Suit
Maybe it is the man wearing the suit that makes it so great. But you have to admit the suit did make the strongest being in the entire DCEU bleed. Bruce Wayne almost killed Superman with the suit’s help. The suit has grappling hook launchers and a gas grenade launcher. It also gives Batman a degree of superhuman strength and durability. When coupled with Kryptonite gas bombs, the suit is a force to be reckoned with when pit against a Kryptonian.
The mystical sword once belonged to Takeo Yamashiro and now the DC superhero Katana. The blade has a very unique power. Whoever is killed by the sword will have his or her soul sucked into it. Katana can freely converse with any soul trapped within the sword. The supernatural aspect of the sword will make it a potent weapon against supernatural threats. Even Superman, who is known to be susceptible to magic, is powerless against it.
A device created by Ratcatcher and now wielded by Ratcatcher 2, the rat Communicator first debuted in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad 92021). The Rat Communicator allows Ratcatcher 2 to communicate with rats. She can even control them to do her bidding if she wills it. Since almost all cities and towns have an army of these little critters, the Rat Communicator is a potential weapon of mass destruction.
Lasso Of Hestia
The Lasso of Hestia is an iconic Wonder Woman weapon. Its most famous ability is it can force the truth out of anyone. But it also has other abilities the movies explore. The lasso can bend to any direction Wonder Woman wants and can seemingly extend to any length. At times, Wonder Woman has also used the lasso to deflect projectiles thrown at her. In the hands of a seasoned warrior, the Lasso of Hestia becomes a powerful weapon.
The Trident Of Atlan
The Trident of Atlan helps Aquaman control what covers a majority of the planet – the oceans. Arthur Curry can communicate with all forms of aquatic life using the trident. It helps him control the Karathen, the greatest sea creature the world has ever seen. James Wan‘s Aquaman showed that the Trident of Atlan can even summon lightning. The Trident of Atlan is Atlantis’ most treasured weapon.
Although not technically a weapon, Starro was kept in captivity and experimented upon to be turned into one. The extra-terrestrial organism can release extensions of itself that attach themselves to other humans and turn them into his drones. Starro can potentially use this to control any superhero on the planet. The only reason Ratcatcher 2 managed to take him down was because of the plot armor. He could have easily taken control of teh entire Suicide Squad had he willed it.
Cyborg is crafted out of the same technology that forms the formidable Mother Box. He is a techno-morph, which allows him to manipulate technology. His body is the most malleable weapon in the DCEU. It can form any kind of weaponry out of thin air and control any form of technology. From Kryptonian scout ships to the Apokoliptian Mother Boxes, everything comes under his domain. Cyborg’s body is a weapon unlike anything the DCEU has ever seen.
The Green Lantern Power Ring
The Green Lantern Power Ring was first seen in the DCEU during the first Apokoliptian invasion of Earth. Despite how easily Darkseid beat the Green Lantern Yalan Gur, the ring itself cannot be taken lightly. It is called the most powerful weapon in the DC Universe. The only limitation the ring possesses is the wielder’s imagination. It can construct and conjure anything via the sheer willpower of the user.
The Anti-Life Equation
It is a transcendental mathematical equation that systematically proves that all life is meaningless. Anyone exposed to its deadly logic loses his or her willpower to live and becomes a drone to the one who wields it. It is a weapon powerful enough to bring Superman to his knees. And in the comics, Darkseid has used the Anti-Life Equation to lay waste on entire civilizations.
