  Weapon X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Weapon X was a fictional clandestine government project in the Marvel Universe conducted by the Canadian Government's Department K (and secretly funded by the US government) which turns willing and unwilling beings into living weapons.
What the Weapon X scientists did not foresee is that the experimentation on Wolverine would cause him to go on a murderous ramage, which allowed the escape of the other test subjects, and caused the deaths of the Professor and Dale Rice, among dozens of other members of Weapon X staff, both scientists and military.
The chronicle of Wolverine's days with the Weapon X project, from the bonding of adamantium to his bones to his escape from the project, were revealed in the limited series Weapon X, written and illustrated by Barry Windsor-Smith and published in installments in the anthology series Marvel Comics Presents in 1991.

 Weapon X #25
Although Weapon X tends to work in fairly short arcs, with three or four issues becoming the norm, and it does steer clear of undue decompression, it would be a little misleading to infer that anything really gets resolved at the end of any of these arcs.
Apparently the Weapon X team have "gone underground", though that still doesn't really explain what happened to all of their staff and the inmates of Neverland - something I'd rather assumed this arc was getting round to in due course.
Weapon Plus thinks that one of the three is in the pocket of Weapon X and so, having fulfilled arch-villain obligations by delivering some exposition, the baddies send in the soldiers to kill everyone.

 Fantomex - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In an appearance in the Weapon X series, however, Fantomex explains that he is not in fact French (further adding to his mysterious origin), but rather speaks with a French accent because he finds that it annoys and distracts others.
After Fantomex destroys Weapon XII by using a remote detonator, it is noticed that there are two empty Weapon Plus transport tubes in the Chunnel: one that held the violent Weapon XII and another that held something called Weapon XIII.
The three are defeated by Weapon XV (Ultimaton), who escapes by breaking through the barriers of The World and flying to the Weapon Plus space station.

Weapon Plus began as the Super-Soldier Program and experiment on the Captain America from the TRUTH mini.
The Weapon developers who labored to develop even MORE sophisticated anti-superhuman tactics, moved to Europe and the program became known as Weapon Plus.
It has been the Weapon X Program for a very long time, Morrison may not have been the first to call it that but he certainly did call it that.

 Weapon X #23
Weapon X is kind of participating in Reload, although it's hard to put my finger on precisely how.
The plus side is that it also gave Tieri some new material to play off, but first, somebody has to make sense of it for the benefit of new readers.
The point is to set up a feud between Sublime's Weapon Plus programmes and the breakaway Weapon X project, and it's reasonably effective at that.

His memories of Weapon X clouded by memory implants and his own horrendous experience; he apparently did not recognize the significance of the term when, either by accident or design, it was used as his codename.
With his death, Weapon X was apparently abandoned, as Weapon Plus had long since superseded it.
Weapon X's activities came to the attention of the mutant time-traveler Cable, who organized an underground movement to oppose them.

 FF: Objective Weapon Design
The ODF for a weapon is equal to the minimum Strength +2.
Often, a fencing weapon will not have an edge and thus the sharpness bonus will be lost as well on a swing.
Weapons designed for exceptionally high or low Strength will most likely need to be custom made and will be correspondingly more expensive.

Instead, he and Murtaugh talk about how they’re growing old over and over and over again (we get it – they are old, old, old) and make their way through incessant bouts of friendly bickering.
Plus, there’s a somewhat deliberate pan of an anti-gun poster, which is a little ironic given all the bullets flying around this picture.
And in the end, it is Jet Li who gives Lethal Weapon 4 the oomph that saves it and the series from fizzling out to a forgettable demise.

Whatever weapon you carry, you NEED to get trained in it's use, otherwise it won't work for you, or worse yet, it'll work at the wrong time and damage the wrong person.
Matter of fact, there are LOTS of laws about weapons in general, starting primarily with those about guns, use of guns, carrying a gun concealed, etc-----but there are laws about stun guns, pepper spray, knives, etc----mostly having to do with when such weapons may be used, and under what circumstances.
Weapons aren't malevolent objects, just waiting for a chance to kill someone, nor are they capable of action on their own.

 EN World - Morrus' D&D / d20 News & Reviews Site - Your experience with these house rules. . .
Magical weapons and shields can be damaged and broken even by mundane weapons or magical weapons of a lesser enhancement bonus.
Each plus of the enhancement bonus still increases the hardness and hit points of the weapon just as in the core rules -- so, while a normal weapon can harm a magical weapon, the magical weapon's improved hardness and hit points protect it to a degree.
Plus, it kind of trips up my verisimilitude when a fire giant can't use his improved sunder (with a mundane weapon) on a simple +1 weapon.

 Weapon X #15 Review - Silver Bullet Comics
Chamber has proven that he is eligible for Weapon X. In recent issues of Uncanny X-Men, he came back from college only to find that Husk, who he liked, but never actually dated, was now in a relationship with Angel.
His pencils went well with the Deadpool: Agent of Weapon X storyline, which was light-hearted humor, so I think he should stick with comics like that.
The continuity of the title itself is becoming something of a problem for me. With the conclusion of New X-Men’s “Assault on Weapon Plus” storyline, one has to wonder if the current Weapon X program has any affiliation with Weapon Plus.

 Greater Bane and Lesserbane: Variant Weapon Properties
Because expensive weapons are a hassle for DMs because once you're beyond +3-equivalent, only very high-level NPCs can afford to have them and so it's difficult to equip them in the hands of NPCs without being a disproportionate treasure reward.
Greaterbane: A greaterbane weapon has all of the properties of a lesserbane weapon, plus it bypasses the damage reduction of the designated creature as if its enhancement bonus were a +4 more than its actual value (this modified enhancement bonus can exceed the normal +5 limit of magic weapons).
So the greaterbane weapon is made up of one +1 property (lesserbane) and another +1 property (sure striking from Magic of Faerûn and Sword and Fist, which I had created independently and named peerless before I found out the SandF already had such a thing...

In this scene, Cyclops tells Wolverine that he refuses to come back to the X-Men, but Logan instead recruits him for a big mission with Fantomex, an upgraded Weapons Plus graduate who clarifies that Logan was really Weapon Ten, not Weapon X as previously assumed.
Collecting both the "Murder at the Mansion" and "Assault on Weapon Plus" storyarcs, this TPB is more of a calm before the storm of Grant Morrison's now legendary run on New X-Men.
All in all, Assault on Weapon Plus isn't as revolutionary as the rest of Morrison's run, but it's still a solid X-Men yarn that sets forth the pivotal events in Planet X and Morrison's stunning finale, Here Comes Tomorrow.
