The Mother Box is a highly advanced living computer used by the New Gods. Its main capability is generating Boom Tubes, 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. Desaad perfected a Mother Box that could generate a Boom Tube massive enough for a small fleet of warships to pass through and invade Earth but Superman planted the Atom on it. They thought he infected it with a virus. The fleet was boomed to the Third Moon of Graxos IV instead and Kanto was unable to disinfect the Mother Box and Boom Tube network. They attempted to torture the solution out of Superman but he refused. Space Cabbie returned with Hawkman and Swamp Thing. During the course of the battle, Superman was freed. After he defeated Darkseid, Superman gave Atom the signal. Desaad realized the Boom Tube generator was back online. Superman presented a portable Mother Box and boomed Darkseid to the acid lake planet Schlough.
The Joker was gifted a Mother Box by Desaad. He used it to get into Stryker's Island Penitentiary and extract Lex Luthor. Joker used the Mother Box to take Luthor all over the planet and avoiding Justice Leaguers' attacks. In the final part of his best day ever plan, Joker effectively used it for offense and defense. He teleported and fired energy blasts in concert. Luthor tricked Joker and neutralized him then turned the Mother Box over to Superman.
