Jabberwocky (also known as Jabberwock) [1] is a poem written by Lewis Carrol in the book "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" about a hideous monster known as the Jabberwocky that is slain by a young hero.

HistoryEdit

A ghost assumed the form of the Jabberwocky after haunting an Alice in Wonderland display at the New York City Public Library. [2] The Ghostbusters chased the ghost down the middle of 16th Street in Ecto-1. They jumped out and pursued it down an alley. After it blew them away, they blasted it with all four of their streams and Slimer threw out a Ghost Trap, barely escaping its grasp a total of two times.

PowersEdit

Aside from flight, the Jabberwocky could exhale a powerful gust of wind that blew the Ghostbusters off their feet. It was also so strong that four Proton Streams barely confined it. Even if one Ghostbuster stopped shooting it, it would have escaped. [3]

TriviaEdit

  • Winston and Peter recite part of the Jabberwock poem. [4] [5] [6]
  • On page three of Ghostbusters Issue #4, Idulnas mentioned a Jabberwock as a potential Destructor Form. This was not a direct reference to the animated version and was simply a coincidence. [7]
