Classification: Terrestrial technology

Creator: Dr. Henry Pym

User/Possessors: Dr. Pym, Wonder Man

First Appearance: Avengers West Coast Annual#5/5 (1990)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: It was originally a sixteen foot long cannon that was capable of vaporizing a whole building with one shot.


(Avengers West Coast Annual#5/5 (fb) - BTS) - One day, Dr. Pym decided to shrink down this dangerous weapon to a half-inch and put it in his pocket. Unfortunately, he lost it in a room at the West Coast Avengers compound.

(Avengers West Coast Annual#5/5) - While Pym was looking for it, he didn't allow Wonder Man--who was eating chips--to move because the weapon could easily vaporize the whole building if it was triggered. Hawkeye and Wasp soon joined him on his search while Scarlet Witch was sent away because her powers could accidentally trigger the cannon. USAgent soon joined the search as well, and they unsuccessfully looked for the cannon until Wonder Man asked Pym if he didn't have a device that could locate it. Pym then recalibrated his ion-locator to pick up the anti-matter transmission of the gun. He located it a second too late as Wonder Man had swallowed the last chips and the cannon was among them. It detonated inside Wonder Man, who easily survived the explosion.
