The Mother Box is an alien computer used by the forces of Darkseid to generate portals for instant travel between planets no matter the distance. Information on the Mother Box is not kept in the Green Lantern Corps Power Rings. For the invasion of Earth, several Parademons were covertly dispatched ahead of time to plant Mother Boxes in various cities across the planet. Victor Stone, in a rage, grabbed an active Mother Box just as it generated a Boom Tube and was exposed to the backwash of radiation. The energy quickly ate him from the inside out, caused cardiac arrest and raced up his spinal cord. Silas Stone was able to save his son's life by a Promethium skin graft and injecting nanites. A Parademon process began and assimilated anything in proximity. Cyborg was born.

Cyborg was able to connect to the network shared by the Mother Boxes and sucked all Parademons through Boom Tubes back to Apokolips. To draw Darkseid back and close all portals, the Mother Box required more energy. Shazam supplied his lightning. The Mother Box initated Boom Tube closure and all portals were sealed. Cyborg used his Mother Box one last time to boom all humans kidnapped back to Metropolis. Due to the activity, all Mother Boxes were fried. A few years later, during a battle outside City Hall, Bruno Mannheim tried to use a Mother Box but it failed and he was captured by Superman. Jimmy Olsen suspected Apkolips was supplying them and sneaked into a hide out in Suicide Slum. He found a Mother Box in a desk draw but was caught red handed by two guards.
