Wreckers Crowbar from Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Vol 1 15 0001.jpg

The Wrecker wields a four-foot long cast iron crowbar which has become virtually indestructible through extensive contact with his enchanted skin. The crowbar is a weapon of vast destructive potential.

The Wrecker has used the crowbar to demolish entire buildings in minutes and to hold off the thunder god, Thor, in battle. Because of the teachings of Ulik, he can throw his crowbar and have it return to him, much like Thor's own hammer. The Wrecker has also established a mental link with his enchanted crowbar.[citation needed]

In the past when the Wrecker has lost his superhuman powers, the power has transferred itself into the crowbar. By making physical contact with the crowbar, the Wrecker can transfer the power back into himself. Also, by touching the crowbar, the Wrecker can magically transform whatever he is wearing into his costume. By concentrating on the crowbar, the Wrecker can use it to take mental possession of whoever touches it, and cause an enchanted aura that can repel bullets to surround that person. The Wrecker can also locate members of the Wrecking Crew by concentrating on his crowbar.[citation needed]

The Wrecking Crew slowly lost their powers if they were for too long away from the Wrecking Bar's range.[2]

Alternate Reality Versions

Apes World Invaded (Earth-95019)

Dirk Garthwaite (Earth-95019) from Marvel Apes Amazing Spider-Monkey Special Vol 1 1 001.jpg

In this reality, which is inhabited by anthropomorphic ape versions of Marvel characters, the Wrecker was named the Wrencher and wielded a wrench instead of a crowbar.[3]


  • The crowbar is also capable of regenerating itself, as it once did after the Melter dissolved it.[4]
