Years ago, the scientist Sardath developed a ray designed to communicate with alien lifeforms across vast distances. Known as a Zeta-Beam, this ray became infused with radioactive energy and evolved into a teleportation beam. The beam reached the planet Earth where it struck archaeologist Adam Strange, transporting him twenty-five trillion miles through space to the planet, Rann. Sardath explained to Adam that once the Zeta-Beam radiation wears off, he would instantly teleport back to his point of origin. To counter those who would use Zeta-Beam technology for personal gain, Sardath also developed a Nega-Zeta-Beam ray. Sardath would go onto further his work into the Zeta technology over the years, eventually creating an improvement known as the Mega Zeta-Beam which generates a permanent spatial displacement radiation charge in the host it is used upon. At the cost of severe psychological distress that leads to temporary insanity, as well as an A.I. orbital drone called a Zeta Module which key's into the specific Zeta Rad signature a user wishes to follow and can piggy back along that trail to get there, moreover transport through the condensed apparatus is permanent like the Mega Zeta Ray. Only without the debilitating side effects of the previous model it was designed after.
