If you’ve ever wanted to know whether Han Solo’s blaster was more destructive than a Phaser, or whether a Dalek would be strong enough to take on one of the Jaegers of Pacific Rim, then this infographic has you covered. Commissioned by Fat Wallet, this infographic by Foundation Digital is a list of science fiction weaponry that ranks them by the amount of damage they’d do in Joules. They’ve even thrown in a few real-world weapons, such as Boeing YAL-1 laser and the Fat Man atomic bomb (which will sound familiar to fans of the Fallout video games) so you’ve got something to compare it to. How nice of them!
It’s a pretty detailed list, featuring weapons as diverse as the Ghostbusters’ proton packs, the Ma’tokk staff from Stargate, and even Super Mario’s fireball. If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably have as much fun exploring what made it onto the list as you will discovering what hasn’t made the cut (Red Dwarf bazookoid).
