#ComicBytes: The top five weapons of the Avengers, ranked
What makes Earth's Mightiest Heroes truly mighty? Their iconic weapons. Every member of the Avengers has a specific weapon, which enhances their capability to fight the bad guys. Since there are too many Avengers (MCU has shown just a portion of the big picture), selecting the best weapons is quite difficult. But here we are! These are the top five weapons of the Avengers.
Captain America's shield is an offensive and defensive weapon
Shields are generally used for defensive purposes in warfare. But not Captain America's iconic red, white, and blue shield. Made of vibranium, steel alloy, and Proto-Adamantium, this nearly indestructible shield's primary purpose is to protect Cap from bullets, lasers, and all energy-based attacks. But over the years, Steve Rogers has learned to throw it at his opponents to hurt or disarm them.
Every Iron Man suit is a weapon in itself
Invented as a way to escape a desperate situation, Tony Stark's armor began the legacy of Iron Man, a beloved and popular Avenger. With more resources and dedicated hours, Stark transformed the initial design into a collection of Iron Man armors, designed to tackle different problems. Apart from their specific features, every suit has uni-beam, repulsor rays, and weapons to take down his opponents.
Black Panther's suit, Panther Habit, is a technological marvel
Also known as the Panther Habit, the suit of Black Panther is a technological marvel. The vibranium in this suit not only protects T'Challa from attacks, it also absorbs the kinetic energy of those attacks for reuse. Loaded with gadgets such as vibranium claws and daggers, this suit further contains cloaking tech and energy dampening boots, which allow T'Challa to maximize his fighting abilities.
Eye of Agamotto diminishes the illusions of evil magic
Doctor Strange has unparalleled magical abilities. But, when the Sorcerer Supreme faces cosmic threats, he uses the Eye of Agamotto, an artifact, which he wears around his neck. Created by Agamotto (the supernatural patron of the Sorcerer Supreme), this powerful magical talisman emits a bright light that weakens evil magic users by removing their illusions. Furthermore, the artifact can't be used for evil purposes.
Mjolnir, Thor's magical hammer is a multi-purpose and powerful weapon
Forged by Dwarves of Nidavellir and made of Uru, Mjolnir is Thor's weapon, which grants him most of his abilities. This enchanted hammer allows him to manipulate weather, project and counter energy blasts, create forcefields, fly, teleport, and so much more. More importantly, it lets Thor channel his godly energies into a single energy beam called the God Blast, which can defeat powerful immortals.
