Zeta-Tube

The Zeta-Tube's iris opening wide to teleport Red Arrow out of the Cave.

A Zeta-Tube is a device that the Justice League, the Team, the Outsiders and STAR Labs use to move its members and allies from place to place via the Zeta-Beam. Sardath uses platforms[1] instead, which are configured differently and more powerful than Zeta-Tubes.[2]

This apparatus consists of a long and wide cylinder capable of fitting large groups of people. At its back end there is a mechanical iris which opens to reveal a projector that shoots Zeta-Beam energy to teleport people in or out of the tunnel.

History

Early history

The inception of the Zeta-Tube dates back as far as 1955, by which time Dr. Erdel was already conducting Zeta-Beam experiments, resulting in the transportation of Martian Manhunter from Mars to Earth.[3]

After the foundation of the Justice League in 2003,[4] STAR Labs created the "Erdel Initiative", a division named after Dr. Erdel[3] responsible for maintaining the team's Zeta-Beam technology.[5]

2010

The Zeta-Tube network was taken offline on November 11 due to extreme cold weather.[6]

2015

The Zeta-Tubes within the area enclosed by the Collector of Worlds's force field around Metropolis were rendered offline on December 1.[7]

Specifications and limitations

Zeta-Tubes are required at both ends of the journey,[8] and are reliant on weather conditions.[6] These machines are accessed by means of the Justice League Computer, which recognizes Justice League members and allies and reads out their designations when they depart or arrive.
