Mother Boxes are also able to summon (see entry above). The New God Orion made a habit of using his Mother Box to alter his features and help sooth his emotional rages.
Mother Boxes have different individual designs. Some have a single starburst design. Some have mutli-colored lights. Some have no apparent markings except for a single circle design. Each is a hand-held device in the shape of a metal cube or a rectangular metal box. When a Mother Box speaks to a user, her or she understands its meaning but others only hear a repeated noise.
On Apokolips, a few of the evil New Gods were seen to use their own version of the Mother Box, called "Father Boxes." Their full nature is unknown.
