The Mega Rod is a weapon used by Big Barda that has many applications. So far, Barda has used it as a hand to hand weapon, to fire energy blasts and as a means of transportation. The Mega-Rod is capable of projecting a wide-arcing blast of concussive force powerful enough to tear through the hull of a heavily armored ship.
The functional components of the Mega-Rod utilize the same technology used in the construction of Apokoliptian Boom Tubes. As such, it is possible to reverse-engineer a Mega-Rod's internal mechanisms and use them to create a transwarp drive. Big Barda demonstrated this tool's ability when her spaceship required additional power in order to catch up to the Cluster Ship owned by Lord Manga Khan.
Another version of the Mega-Rod is used by the teen superheroine Little Barda.
