‘Justice League’: Steppenwolf’s Electro Axe Weapon Has An Untold Story

The tie-in book ‘Justice League: The Art of the Film’ features unknown and untold details about the CGI alien villain Steppenwolf and his most dangerous weapon ‘Electro Axe.’

Apart from being immortal, Steppenwolf is blessed with a lot of other special abilities that include super strength, improved and enhanced speed, and durability among others. Steppenwolf also has a sharp and strategic mind which adds to his already dangerous qualities. He is undoubtedly a leader who leads his soldiers into the battle. He also joins in the battle using his natural abilities and weapons like his cable snare or trademark Electro-Axe.

In Justice League, you would notice that Steppenwolf’s Electro-Axe (voiced by Ciaran Hinds) was destroyed by the resurrected Superman and Wonder Woman during the final battle, just before the great villain was dispatched altogether.

While we are all aware that a lot of changes were made in the final stages of Justice League after Zack Snyder stepped down, and Joss Whedon took over, it is only now that we are getting to know the number of scenes that were deleted in the final movie.

From what Ciaran Hinds said in ‘The Art of the Film’, it does seem like Steppenwolf’s electro-axe had a bigger role to play, suggesting that one or few scenes involving Steppenwolf showcasing his weapon was deleted. Hinds said, “Steppenwolf’s real powers are wielded through this extraordinary weapon he has, the Electro Axe, which is almost like a part of him. It creates mayhem and decimates everything around it. Even when it’s at rest, it looks threatening.”

It is clear from this statement that there was a backstory to Steppenwolf’s Electro Axe than what we were left to watch in the final Justice League movie.

Justice League released last month to negative reviews. The film did not do as well as expected in the box office either.
