The USS Enterprise taking punishing disruptor fire from the IKS Varchas in 2254

A disruptor is a type of directed energy weapon used among many non-Federation races.

In 2254 the Klingon Kaaj was able to deliver severe damage to the USS Enterprise by carefully controlling IKS Varchas's disruptor pulse patterns and repeatedly targeting stressed areas. (EV comic: "The Fires of Pharos")

History

Raleigh was a charismatic politician with ties to the underworld and possibly a criminal past. With the help of the Man-Monster, a creature created by Dr. Thaxton, he tried to get elected as Mayor of New York. He was defeated in that bid by Spider-Man and was killed when the Man-Monster took revenge on him.

Trivia

Raleigh originally appeared in 1968, in the black and white magazine Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #1. This story was readapted in 1973 for Amazing Spider-Man #116 - #118, even though Raleigh had been shown dead back in Daredevil 42. It seems unclear which of the two versions are considered in continuity.

A hand-held disruptor pistol.

A disruptor was a particularly powerful energy weapon often preferred by assassins. Disruptors were illegal on many worlds, and in many places merely possessing one would earn an instant death sentence. Even under the Empire, only a select few Imperial Security agents were allowed to carry them. Examples included the Galactic Solutions Industries GSI-21D disruptor pistol, Merr-Sonn Model MSD-32 disruptor pistol and the Tenloss DX-2 disruptor pistol and DXR-6 disruptor rifle.

Disruptor mechanics

"Remember--no disintegrations."
Darth Vader to Boba Fett
A DXR-6 disruptor rifle.

On a basic level, a disruptor worked by using large quantities of blaster gas (such as Tibanna gas), many times more than a standard blaster. The energy beam fired by a disruptor was generated in almost the same manner as the particle beam fired by a blaster, though the beam used much more blaster gas. A disruptor's internal components were quite different than that of a blaster's, though. The blaster gas used to generate the beam underwent a considerably different transformation that formed the disruptor beam. The resultant blast was short-ranged, less cohesive, and extraordinarily powerful; it differed from a standard blaster in that it created an energy wave consisting of disruptive, nonharmonic energy pulses that excited a target's molecules to the point that it destroyed the bonds that held their constituent atoms together, painfully. A shot from a disruptor rifle could do this in less than a full second, vaporizing a being almost instantly. A disruptor was capable of disintegrating a humanoid target, turning it to a pile of ash, and was quite effective against other solid targets, even capable of damaging starship hulls, though the massive amount of blaster gas used by disruptors made them inefficient and impractical for starship use.

As a drawback, in addition to being illegal and short-ranged, disruptors generally only had enough ammunition for a few shots, and were incapable of firing rapidly or being set to stun. However, some disruptor pistols were capable of being set to overload, a setting which greatly increased the pistol's power for a single shot. Unfortunately this usually resulted in the firearm being rendered useless, due to the weapon's internals suffering damage from focusing even more energy into what was already an unstable form of tibanna gas particles.

Bounty hunters like Boba Fett used disruptors on kill missions.
