Notable Attacks/TechniquesEdit

  • Boom - Tube: Barda can travel interstellar distances quickly by creating an apparent tube between two points which she can travel, basically a portal.
    • Summoning: Barda can summon her Boom - Tube.
  • Omega Beams/Effect: A power derived from the Source, manifested as beams from his eyes which make sharp - angled turns to follow opponents, they have demonstrated the ability to phase through matter and energy, ignoring everything but their target, with interplanetary and interdimensional range, as well as traveling through time, and completely bypassing most forms of defense. Effects on the target can include simple heat/concussion attacks, transmutation, teleportation to any point in space, time, or dimensions that Darkseid chooses, de-materializing the target's body and encapsulating the target's life force inside of a container which can be restored later, destroying the target and storing its "pattern" in Darkseid's mind, which he can recreate later if he wishes, extracting the target's soul, or removing the target completely from existence. It should also be noted that when fired from the hands it becomes the omega effect and is exponentially more powerful then the omega beams. Because of the raw power of this ability most writers completely ignore its existence for the sake of simplicity.
    • Omega Sanction: A form of the Omega Effect that captures the target's soul and sends it to be tortured in a progressively worse series of realities. Apparently if Darkseid dies the target will be reincarnated in a random time and place (like when Batman was sent back to the stone age).
  • Mother Box: Barda possesses a Mother Box, which grants her various powers, including;
    • Energy Manipulation/Projection: Barda can manipulate and project large amounts of energy.
    • Healing:
    • Mystical Rapport with Nature: Barda's Mother Box has a mystical rapport with nature.
    • Self - Destruction: If Barda should die, when she dies her Mother Box will self - destruct with tremendous force.
