The blade is 48 inches long and is connected by a 24 inch shaft to the basket hilt by which it is held. It has at least four internal weapons.
- Concussive Plasma Blasts: Fires blasts from the handle equivalent to 100 pounds of TNT.
- Encephalo-Stunner: By touching the end of the shaft against a living target, the target can be put into a coma that is fatal after three hours.
- Anesthetic Gas Spray: Each use can form a cloud of gas capable of rendering all that breathe it unconscious for 20 minutes.
- High-speed Buzzsaw: The blade can rotate at over 6000 RPM, which can provide a bullet-deflecting shield, or a low-power helicopter that will negate falling damage from nearly any height.
More recently in his "Death" persona, Eric Williams has a distinctive scythe. However, the weapon appears to have slightly different capabilities. It's power may also be different as he was able to disrupt and defeat Wonder Man. Previously the scythe appeared to be a minor nuisance to this Ionic Avenger.
