Classification: Terrestrial technology

Creator: Mr. Fantastic

Users/Possessors: Dr. Doom (Victor von Doom), Mr. Fantastic

First Appearance: Fantastic Four Annual#2 (1964)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Encephalo-Gun has the ability to harness the mental energies of the people operating it, and send the one with less power into a limbo-like dimension from which there is no escape.

History: (Fantastic Four Annual#2/2) - During a clash with Dr. Doom at the Latverian Embassy, Mr. Fantastic proposed to end his quarrel with Doom once and for all. After drinking a toast to him, he presented the Encephalo-Gun, the purpose of which Doom surmised immediately. They placed their foreheads to the device, and unleashed their mental energies. Doom seemingly saw Mr. Fantastic fade from sight and believed that he had won, and left in absolute triumph. However, Mr. Fantastic had drugged their toast, causing Doom to hallucinate and imagine his victory.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Chic Stone.

Since Doom had been drugged to hallucinate his victory, it's possible that the Encephalo-Gun was actually just a harmless non-functional prop that Reed built to trick Doom.
