Green Lantern's Ring

This is a weapon that can create more weapons. And communicate with others. And create a force field. And generate Lantern’s protective suit. It’s very nearly a Deus Ex Machina.

The Helmet of Fate/Helmet of Nabu

The Helmet is one of the most powerful objects in the DC Universe. Created by the Lord of Order, Nabu, it allows the wearer to communicate with the spirit of Nabu. It also allows for access to a vast amount of magical knowledge and Doctor Fate’s powers – Intelligence, Flight, Telekinesis, Telepathy, Super Strength, etc etc etc.

Captain America's Shield

Captain America’s Shield is not only useful, it’s symbolic. It’s not a weapon generally used to fire death and doom at others, but rather to protect. Made of an adamantium-vibranium alloy, it’s basically indestructible.

Spider-Man's Web Shooters

They let him swing from building to building and basically turned NYC into his personal trapeze playground. I mean, he had all those splendid core muscles from the spider bite, might as well use them…

The Elder Wand

The Elder Wand is arguably the most powerful of the Deathly Hallows (three powerful magical objects given to the Peverell brothers by Death himself). It’s a tricky wand, though; it’s allegiance doesn’t always belong to the one who’s wielding it. It is because of this – that the Wand’s true Master was Harry, not Voldemort – that the killing curse Voldemort cast in the final battle did not kill Harry. Dude just can’t get a break when it comes to the Potter kid, seriously.
