In the comic books, often times, our favorite superheroes work alone with very little in the way of a support staff. While you can use thought bubbles for dialogue, that wouldn’t work for a television show. The CW has spent the better part of the last decade crafting how to do a superhero series in the new millennium and still stay fairly true to the characters. Since this trend all started with Arrow, fans and creators have dubbed this world, “The Arrowverse.” Each main hero has a full team at their disposable of just ordinary citizens and other superheroes alike.
Over the years of each series, Team Arrow, S.T.A.R. Labs, The DEO, and The Legends have encountered and have used all sorts of various weapons to fight any and all kinds of threats. Even Supergirl has her weapons, and she’s Supergirl! Her weapon is a super-suit that shields her from various forms of kryptonite while still able to absorb the sun’s rays. While that’s a powerful weapon for her, no one else in the Arrowverse could really use it. But these are weapons there are other weapons that are plenty powerful. Here are The 10 Most Powerful Weapons In The Arrowverse, Ranked.
10 T-Spheres (Arrow)
The only tech genius remotely on par with Felicity is Curtis Holt. He also happens to be an elite Olympic athlete. He joins Team Arrow as Mr. Terrific and later heads up the Research and Development team at A.R.G.U.S. In the field, he has invented powerful orbs that he calls “T-Spheres.” The Spheres are essentially drones that perform various functions - usually making an explosion or knocking out some bad guys.
9 The Totems (Legends Of Tomorrow)
The Totems Of Zambesi were created hundreds of years ago to help the Zambesi tribes fight back from attackers. Each Totem contained a different elemental power to it - air, fire, water, earth, spirit, and death. Combined, the Legends used the Totems to defeat Mallus.
Separately, the most commonly used Totem on the show was the Spirit Totem, used by Mari and Kuasa who share the Vixen mantle and protect their village with all of the other Totems. Except for the Air Totem, which Zari is in control of aboard the Waverider.
8 Red Daughter (Supergirl)
You might not think that a person could be used as a weapon. But then you haven’t met Lex Luthor, or ever used Black Kryptonite before. Red Daughter, Snowbird was a Russian-version of Supergirl created when Kara used the Black Kryptonite to defeat Reign. With no memory that she was part of Kara, Luthor was able to manipulate her into thinking that she was a guardian for Kaznia and a superwoman to help stop the villainous United States and their Kryptonian champion, Supergirl.
7 A.T.O.M. Suit (Arrow, Legends)
Ray Palmer in the Arrowverse began as their version of Tony Stark - if Tony was an absolute Boy Scout who loved sci-fi and fantasy. The lovable Palmer even crafted his own suit - the A.T.O.M. (Advance Technology Operating Mechanism) suit. Fun loving, but heroic Ray would use this suit to become a superhero in his own right. First he used to try and take down the Arrow (because the League has been framing him), now he uses it as part of the Legends.
6 The Spear Of Destiny (Legends Of Tomorrow)
Eobard Thawne, Damien Darhk, and Malcolm Merlyn had all been beaten by both Team Flash and Team Arrow and were a little tired of that. They sought to change their respective destinies by traversing in time to reforge The Spear Of Destiny. The only thing standing in the Legion Of Doom’s way were the Legends. They briefly succeeded in using the Spear, which allowed them rewrite reality in their image as “Doomworld.”
5 Kryptonite Arrows (Arrow)
Arrow takes places on Earth-1, as do most of the Arrowverse shows. Since Supergirl originally started on a different network, the creative team set her world as Earth-93 as an easy explanation for why no one else heard of her yet. That makes Ollie having Kryptonite Arrows even more peculiar.
But he did, and he used them during “Crisis On Earth-X.” His explanation for having it was as simple as any other reason - in case and evil Supergirl showed up. However, having an arrow that can stop a Kryptonian on an Earth that supposedly hasn’t encountered them yet makes Oliver’s Kryptonite Arrow a big plothole and and even bigger weapon.
4 Speed Force Bazooka (The Flash)
The Speed Force is what every speedster in the Arrowverse taps into to get their speed. It exists outside of normal time, as evidenced by certain speedsters not being erased from existence when the Legion Of Doom rewrote history. With the darkest part of Barry manifested as the God Of Speed, Savitar, Team Flash worked fairly quickly in creating the Speed Force Bazooka. After a few twists and turns, the Bazooka wound up freeing Jay Garrick from the Speed Force Prison. The gun itself has also been modified to unshrink people and splice through dimensions.
3 Lexosuit (Supergirl)
But he’d finally don the infamous Lexosuit when he tried to frame Supergirl by encasing her inside of one. The suit itself also contains all kinds of weapons, including a kryptonite sword and flight thrusters.
2 Cicada’s Dagger (The Flash)
On the night of The Enlightenment, Orlin Dwyer tried to save his niece Grace. In the process, she wound up in a coma and he was psychically connected to a fragment of the satellite, now with meta-energy. As Cicada, Dwyer and later an adult Grace were both able to use it to not only detect metas but the dagger rendered them powerless long enough for Cicada to be able to kill multiple metas.
1 Hot And Cold Guns (The Flash)
Prison Break brothers Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell were perfectly cast as Leonard Snart and Mick Rory respectively. As Captain Cold and Heatwave, they each got a gun to match their personalities - Snart a freeze gun and Rory got a flamethrower. Sometimes the classics are just as fun and need no modifications to make them more devastating to either try and take out Team Flash or later help out the Legends.
