Is Zeus’ Master Bolt Really the Most Powerful Weapon Ever Created?

Zeus and his Master Bolt from Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning ThiefZeus’ Master Bolt has been considered the most powerful weapon for centuries. Now, many people are saying that it isn’t. Hades, god of the Underworld, was struck by the bolt by Persephone and was only knocked out, not killed. A sword can kill people though. Is a sword or spear more powerful than Zeus’ bolt? Zeus allowed me to ask him some questions.

“Zeus, people are questioning the ability of your bolt because lighting usually does not kill people. Do you agree with this?”

“No, not at all. I am King of the skies and my lightning is very powerful. A sword cannot shock people. I would like to see someone challenge me to a fight with a sword. If I wanted to, I could do lots of damage with my bolt.”

“So you stand by your bolt?”

“Yes, my bolt will always be the most powerful weapon as long as I live… Which is forever.”

I now see that Zeus’ Master Bolt is very powerful. He can use it for weather or as a great weapon. Zeus’ bolt will never be topped.
