Major Spoilers Question of the Day: Laser Eyes Edition


The thing about Scott Summers and his cursed laser eyes is this: Though they’re his primary power, a lot of other characters have that same ability as part of their power set.  Superman and his imitators (including Hyperion, whose atomic vision became a major plot point in the 1986 ‘Squadron Supreme’ miniseries), cartoon Starfire, even Zok from the Herculoids do something very similar to ol’ Slim’s face blaster.  (And most of them do it without an existential crisis, too.)  And, of course, there is the mighty Lazer Pony who… uh…  It’s complicated, leading to today’s heat-and-or-force-beam query.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is leaning towards John Dickering, the Golden Age Archie Comics hero known as The Comet, whose eye lasers are full-on disintegration beams, asking: What fictional character has the greatest laser eyes of them all?
