"A Q-Ray was reportedly once used by Doctor Doom." It must be a very powerful thing for him to only need it once. Or perhaps it was useless. The relative certainties must be ascertained. If doctor Doom has a ray. he uses it. if it works, he keeps using it. therefore it must be non-useful to fictional scientists. in art, so as in life.

Violet ray machines[edit]

At the time of their development they were part of a wider interest in 'new technology' - X rays, radio waves etc, etc - so in part a 'might-be technology' which became woo (or which might have an effect due to 'this is bizarre technology'/semi-placebo).
