Silver Surfer’s Cosmic Surfboard

The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Radd acquired vast power, a new body and a surfboard-like craft on which he could travel faster than light. Now known as the Silver Surfer, Radd roamed the cosmos searching for planets for Galactus to consume.

  • When flying, the Silver Surfer uses a construct which resembles an earthly surfboard. This "board" is made with the same silvery material (The Galactic Glaze) that composes the Surfer's body, thus making the board indestructible. Few forces aside from the power cosmic itself can affect it, and if it is somehow damaged, the Surfer can easily repair it in an instant.
  • The board is psionically linked with the Surfer's mind in some unknown fashion, and it follows his commands instantly. It apparently taps the cosmic energy in much the same fashion as the Surfer himself, and although the Surfer could theoretically use the power cosmic to fly without his board, the construct enables him to do so without expending any of his own energy. 
  • The Surfer generally limits his speed to Mach 10 (ten times the speed of sound) within the outer layers of a planet's atmosphere, can attain 99.99% the speed of light in regular space, and can exceed light-speed within hyperspace. 
  • The Silver Surfer is also able to trap living matter into his Surfboard for extended periods of time, or even destroy living matter within the board itself.

  • The Eye can emit an 'all-revealing light.'

Iron Man is the name of the suit of armor developed by Tony Stark created with the help of Ho Yinsen as a means of escaping captivity in Afghanistan. The plethora of functionality in the suit is as follows

  • Every suit has a self-contained environment, assorted onboard weapons systems, enhanced strength, flight, and various communications arrays and sensors (such as radar and radio). 

  • Furthermore, they typically have multiple power sources including a secondary solar energy collection function in the event that conventional charging methods are unavailable. 

  • Earlier versions of the armor could also fold virtually flat, allowing Stark to store them in his bullet-proof briefcase.

  • The defining abilities of Stark's armor are the jets situated in the boots and the repulsors situated in the gauntlets. 

  • In the 2008 film, the repulsors are a form of propulsion and (as hand units) steering jet, though they can be used offensively.

  • Another defining trait is the chest-mounted "uni-beam", also known as the variobeam, pentabeam, and tri-beam (in the 2008 film, Stark commands J.A.R.V.I.S. to divert power to his "chest RT", or chest repulsor transmitter).

The Good Samaritan is a fictional weapon from Mike Mignola's Hellboy comics (although it is only named as such in the film version). The Samaritan is an oversized, uniquely large caliber four-round revolver. It fires its custom-made bullets with adequate power to easily penetrate virtually any material. The gun itself has unearthly resistance to almost all forms of attack, and includes grips carved from fragments of the True Cross. The metal of the gun is forged from a combination of Irish church bells, cold iron from crucifixes, blessed silver, and other mystic metals.

The Samaritan only holds four of its oversized normal rounds, but The Good Samaritan can also be loaded with special rounds such as

Whopper rounds, custom-made by Hellboy himself, are tipped with explosive shells that contain white oak, holy water, garlic, and silver shavings, and clove leaves. These ingredients, each bearing a folkloric power to impede evil and/or specific monsters (e.g. vampires, werewolves, witches, etc.), have the potential to injure many of the foes Hellboy may face.

Tracking bullets contain a phosphorescent green liquid that will drip from the wound they open on a target, allowing the target's path to be easily followed in low-light situations.
