The Ultimate Weapon is a well-travelled bit of adventure fiction: From the Ultimate Nullifier that even Galactus fears to the Nintendo Power Glove of Green Lantern energy that Hal Jordan recently started wearing, every Ultimate bit of war machinery has its positives and negatives.   F’rinstance, the giant laser cannon on the Death Star could destroy entire planets, but only when it wasn’t being used to direct the weekly broadcast of ‘Hee Haw,’ while Gunstar One’s Death Blossom could destroy everything in sight, but left the pilot disoriented and covered in barf, leading us to today’s ever-escalating query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is reminded of the climactic battle of the 35th Anniversary Super Sentai movie where all the rangers transformed their mighty powers into a giant super-bazooka, which blasted the villain to smithereens (for a minute), asking: If you were a villain and/or monster, which Ultimate Weapon would you fear as the ULTIMATE Ultimate Weapon?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. Well, as an individual, at a certain point, more power is overkill, so the scariest thing to me would be the weapon that you cannot stop. Something relentless and hard to stop that is singularly focused on you.

    So I’m gonna go with the T-1000. Or that nano-terminator or whatever it was from Genesys. But Robert Patrick was scarier.
