The Iron Queen's Scepter is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a scepter and royal weapon belonged to the Iron Queen, with the power to control dark magic and influence machines.
The Iron Queen's Scepter is a yellowish goethite rod with a mystical black and blue crystal orb on top. This orb is then surrounded vertically by what resembles a cross between a bident (a two-pronged implement resembling a pitchfork) and a horseshoe magnet.
The scepter's orb contains supernatural energy and electrical impulses that the Iron Queen uses to amplified her Magitek abilities and harness her dark magic. Like the Tremor Mace, it can also match very powerful weapons such as the Atom-Bat and the Piko Piko Hammer in close combat.
Although both magical and technological in nature, the scepter was originally crafted through technological and/or alchemical means by the Iron Queen herself. Since the Iron Queen was always seen with her scepter in her early days when she was betrothed to Jun Kun, now known as the Iron King, the staff serves as a sacred symbol of authority within the Iron Dominion and the symbol of her cruelty.
