So I know this one seems like it could be debated, and I would love to hear your thoughts on this. However, these are the top 10 most powerful items in the DC Universe as stated by DC Entertainment on their YouTube channel.


10. Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth. This Amazon has used her Lasso of Truth to make those captured by it tell the sound truth behind anything that she would ask. It is unbreakable, which has been used against her to tie her up more than once. Its weakness is that it only compels the truth not to force someone to answer the questions.


9 . The Mother Box that is a super computer that can heal, has energy manipulation, and boom tubes or rather worm holes that allow users to transcend time and space. The tricky part is that these super computers are considered sentient and have sacrificed themselves to serve their own desires. These are typically found on the planet New Genesis, created with Element X by the scientist Himon. They do not always take the shape of a box and vary in size. Fun fact, Granny Goodness had been turned into a box but it was called the Grandmother Box.


8. Mobius Chair. This chair can fly, provide a shield, and move planets if the user so chooses. In addition to all of those it too can travel through time and space. It has been held by Metron, until Brainiac removed him and imprisoned him. Metron made this chair to help him obtain knowledge as he traveled the universe.


7. Bell, the Wheel, and the Jar or rather the Green Bell of Uthool, Red Jar of Calythos, and the Silver Wheel of Nyorlath. All of which summon the demons three which stay for a century when summoned all together. Which when you think about it, summoning three demons at the same time is truly playing with fire. The demons ruled the galaxy billions of years ago with their knowledge and power of dark magic. The demons three, Abnegazar, Rath & Ghast ended up being banished by beings known as the Timeless Ones.


6. Starheart.  It is a collective force that was hidden in the heart of a star and grew powerful then eventually obtained self-awareness as the Green Flame of Life. It sent part of itself to travel through the universe seeking out to fulfill its destiny. Fast forward two thousand years and it crashes on Earth where it would be found by Alan Scott who would become the first Green Lantern. Its super powers grant its user eternal youth, teleportation, creation of any construct, and of course flying. Starheart was created by the Guardians of the Universe and has been used against the Green Lantern as well as the Green Arrow in a fight with Zalaz – whom had stolen it to raise his daughter M’la, which would be possessed by the Starheart – that would cause M’la’s doom as a sacrifice to reawaken the original consciousness of the Starheart.


5. Spear of Destiny. Has the ability to control superheroes. It nearly caused Superman to go rogue and join dark forces to destroy everything we know and love. This is most actively seen during the war against Hitler, where at one point Hitler does hold in his possession. The Spear of Destiny has been seen throughout the DCU being used to thwart Spectre, water elementals, and many others who wish to use its power for evil.


4. Of course with Green Lantern we have to mention the White Lantern ring and its ability to create life and resurrect the dead. And to put the cherry on top of this overpowered pie, the wielder of the White Lantern Ring can tap into the powers of any of the Lantern Rings! It first appeared in the Blackest Night Saga as it was used to destroy the Black Lantern Rings that were resurrecting dead heroes and villains.

3. Doctor Fate’s Helmet of Fate. This helmet has unimaginable power as its use and wealth of magic goes on for what seems an eternity. It can be used to teleport, use telekinesis, and of course imbues its user with immortality. According to Black Alice it is the most powerful magickal artifact the world has ever known which is really saying something considering the list of items so far.


2. Anti-Life Equation. Darkseid uses it to control all of the humans as well as superheroes to do his bidding. This of course was no easy task obtaining the equation since its power is so immense. The full equation has been said to be known by the billionaire “Billion Dollar” Bates, but took it to his grave. Where Darkseid made clones of him to obtain the full version of the Anti-Life Equation. This equation is probably the most dangerous out of them considering that it can control any sentient race’s will.


1. Miracle Machine! It turns thought into reality. How many of us would be screwed if we had even five seconds alone with that machine?! I know I would. Darkseid almost keeps Superman trapped in the future until he obtains absolute control over Earth by warping space and time around him and preventing the Legion from returning Superman to his time until after the Anti-Life Equation was released. It takes Superman to recreate the universe and set everything back to the way it was with his memorized schematic of the Miracle Machine to accomplish this, and to have a universe without Darkseid in it this time around.
