* In his '90s run on ''ComicBook/{{X-Factor}}'', Peter David introduced Professor Rick Chalker, who surgically transformed himself into Number One Fan by having ''his hands replaced with giant, razor-sharp fan blades''. Ironically not the sharpest tool in the drawer, he realized too late that he was trapped in his impenetrable lab by his lack of hands, and out of frustration, slapped himself in the forehead (with gruesome results). He was brought back to life along with his relatives Vic (who electrocuted himself while testing his super exoskeleton in the rain) and Dick, but their collective ineptitude quickly killed them for good.

* ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'s Colossus has been known to use the Fastball Special, which is throwing a most unusual thrown weapon: Wolverine. He's not the only strongman in Marvel to have a teammate who occasionally acts as a thrown weapon.

Added DiffLines:

* [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] was perfectly capable of using virtually anything that came to hand as a weapon, including a handful of pepper, an aerosol spray can (with the help of a lighter), a shot glass, a toilet, his scarf, and a fryer full of hot cooking fat. These unanticipated (and often lethal) uses of everyday objects made him one of TheDreaded among cops and crooks alike.

** At one point Daredevil charged at Bullseye directly while they were both in an empty room, figuring that taking away anything he could turn into a weapon would make it an easy fight. Bullseye responds by beating him repeatedly against the walls and floor.

* ComicBook/{{Gambit}} has the [[StuffBlowingUp useful]] ability to turn any inanimate object he touches into a bomb. He has a preference for [[DeathDealer playing cards]] but has alternatively used small change, his staff (which is at times Adamantium and thus isn't completely destroyed), poker chips, sand, credit cards, billiard balls, a bus, and in a particularly vicious example, someone's ''moustache''.
