Boom tube

A boom tube in Metropolis.

A boom tube is a transient interdimensional corridor used as a transportation system by New Gods. It is generated by a Motherbox, a living computer made in New Genesis,[1] or its Apokoliptan counterpart, a Fatherbox.[2]

The Light possesses a number of Fatherboxes, and are therefore able to use boom tubes.[2] Both Halo and Cyborg are able to open boom tubes at will.[3][4] Halo's tubes have the particularity of being indigo.

Background information

In the comics, boom tubes are used by the inhabitants of the worlds New Genesis and Apokolips as created in Jack Kirby's Forth World series of comic books and used extensively in other DC properties.

A boom tube is summoned into being by Apokolips/New Genesis technology, usually in the form of a "Motherbox" or hand-held "living computer" capable of determining the destination. The tube appears with a blast of energy and resounding "BOOM" and connects unlimited distances in Space/Time through a short corridor. The Tube disappears quickly and without a trace if it is not actively kept open.
