The Doomsday Stone is a stone that has Sumerian writing on it. Unlike a normal stone, this is capable of laughter. It tells visitors about the Doomsday Door and the end of the world. It reveals doomsday will spread until it engulfs the whole world.

HistoryEdit

About one mile from the Doomsday Door, Winston Zeddemore stumbled upon the Doomsday Stone. It was sticking out of a subway track. Ray Stantz deduced it was buried for ages. [1] They quickly noticed there was Sumerian written on the stone. [2] Egon Spengler translated the Sumerian for the others. The inscription was information about the Doomsday Door. It was a doorway into the Nether-Regions and was hidden deep in the Earth only to be opened during the end of the world. [3] [4] After the Ghostbusters moved on, a pair of eyes and mouth manifested on the Doomsday Stone and it snickered.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Other than formally warning interlopers of doomsday through an inscription, the Doomsday Stone is anchored to its position.

TriviaEdit

  • In the first draft of the "Knock, Knock" script:
    • Ray speculated the Doomsday Stone was drawn up out of the ground by the excess psychic energy in the area. [5]
    • The stone reminded Ray of a similar manifestation in 1973 in Papua New Guinea. [6]
    • The language on the Doomsday Stone changes from Sumerian to ancient Egyptian to Greek to Indian to Swedish. [7]
