Classification: Extraterrestrial genetic bomb

Creator: Myrn

User/Possessors: Zabyk

First Appearance: Avengers Annual#14 (1985)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Hyper-Wave Bomb possessed the power to drawn upon energy from another dimension to transform the unstable Deviant code in Skrullian DNA, rendering all Skrulls genetically stable. Its range was seemingly unlimited, traveling across the universe at faster-than-light speeds.

History: (Avengers Annual#14 (fb)) - After the destruction of the Skrull homeworld, Myrn created the Hyper-Wave Bomb, and presented it to Zabyk as a means to assume control of the entire Skrull Empire.

(Avengers Annual#14) - Zabyk donned a suit of protective armor so that he would be unaffected by the bomb as Myrn started the countdown. He then slew Myrn.

(Avengers Annual#14/Fantastic Four Annual#19) - The Avengers and Fantastic Four came just as Zabyk was about to activate the bomb, and Captain Marvel flew into the bomb in an attempt to halt it, but could not do so without destroying the universe due to the vast amount of energy it was drawing upon. Zabyk activated the bomb anyway, and it had the effect of stabalizing all of the Skrulls in the universe, removing their shapeshifting powers. Although Zabyk was to have been protected, it removed his powers as well, leaving him fused within the armor, to great agony.
