The Ghost Bomb was a prototype design for eliminating spirits within a 50 yard radius. [1]

HistoryEdit

The Ghost Bomb was a prototype designed by Egon Spengler in the 1980s. Its function was not confinement but the dissemination of all ectoplasmic matter, [2] thus disintegrating all spirits in a limited radius of 50 yards. At the time, it was incomplete because Egon lacked a sufficient power source. In the meantime, it was stored in a trunk at the bedside of Ray Stantz' bed. Annoyed by Slimer, for sleeping in his bed, yet again Peter tried to scare Slimer with the Ghost Bomb.

Egon planned to use it to create a hyperspatial implosion and seal the Boogieman in his realm. Egon hooked up all four Proton Packs to the Ghost Bomb to generate enough power. [3] [4] On Egon's mark, everyone set their packs to overload. The bomb exploded, which sealed the Boogieman's portals and made him weak.

In an alternate timeline, Dr. Roland Jackson continued the work of Egon and created design specifications for a Ghost Bomb. After the Great Ghost War, the last band of rebels rigged a prototype Ghost Bomb based on the specs. When Isaac, one of the rebels, attempted to disintegrate Tempus with the bomb, it instead split the entity into two beings and created a Time Slip. [5] [6] As a result, Tempus existed in both the past, on July 30, 1997, and the future. Also, Kylie Griffin and Isaac switched places. Due to knowledge of the Ghostbusters' knowledge of this future, it is unknown to what degree this timeline will be preserved, thus it is unknown if Roland will still design a new Ghost Bomb.
