Boom Tubes are interplanetary gateways that take its user from one planet to another in an instant no matter the distance. After Superman discovered Steppenwolf after a battle with Parademons, Steppenwolf held out his Mother Box and generated a Boom Tube. He tackled Superman through it. Batman and Big Barda took a Boom Tube to Apokolips to find Steppenwolf's compiled star maps. After interrogating Virman Vunderbar, they took a Boom Tube to the planet where Steppenwolf was attempting to kill Superman on. Not even the Watchtower has safeguards against Boom Tubes appearing within its confines. During a conversation Atom was having with Batman and Wonder Woman about accepting or declining an offer of full membership to the Justice League, a Boom Tube appeared above them in the lab and a Super Parademon emerged. Desaad fashioned a Mother Box capable of generating a massive Boom Tube wide enough for a small Apokoliptian fleet to pass through to Earth. Superman hid Atom in the Mother Box and the Boom Tube network went down. Once Hawkman, Swamp Thing, and Space Cabbie liberated Superman, he revealed the ruse then boomed Darkseid to the acid lake planet Schlough.
The Joker invaded Stryker's Island Penitentiary through a Boom Tube and took a selfie with the Flash then later boomed into Lex Luthor's custom cell. Before the Flash could stop him, the Joker boomed himself and Luthor out of the penitentiary. Joker was adept with using the Boom Tube to avoid the attacks of various Justice Leaguers throughout the day. Desaad boomed Parademons into the Daily Planet to capture Superman. They took a reporter dressed like him instead. In the rescue attempt, Desaad boomed around to avoid the debris raining down on Darkseid's throne room as it collapsed. Superman tricked Desaad into opening a tube and pushed him through. With Desaad's remote, he boomed himself and Sid Sharp back to Earth. Darkseid boomed behind Desaad and stated he failed him for the last time. Mr. Miracle used Darkseid's Mother Box to boom his adopted father away, to whisk himself away after he saved the orb holding the last piece of the Anti-Life Equation, and open a Boom Tube for Batman, himself, and Big Barda to escape through from Apokolips.
Most of the Justice League used their Mother Box to boom from the Watchtower and stop the Red Lanterns from invading Earth but it was a diversion. Dex-Starr was sent ahead to infiltrate the Watchtower and use the League's Mother Box to boom the Red Lanterns directly to Earth. Plastic Man helped capture Dex-Starr while Krypto cut the Boom Tube and the Red Lanterns were sucked back through as it closed.
