True Invulnerability: Amazing
Astro-Harness: Is an alien artifact of unknown origin even amongst the New Gods. Worn around his waist, shoulder and slung over his feet, it is capable of several abilities and is used exclusively by Orion.
Control Speed Body Protection
Excellent Unearthly Amazing None
Astro-force projection: The most potent power of this device is its projection of Unearthly ranked Positive Astro Force in beams origininating from the hand portions of the harness for small blasts, and from the hands and the chest plate for blasts against inanimate objects, large starships or invulnerable super beings.
Force Field Generation: The Astro-harness can also acts as a barrier to attacks directed at Orion, protecting him from injury with Unearthly ability.
Energy Absorption: It can also absorb Amazing ranked energy from the environment in order to power itself, in the event that its access to the source has been cut off.
Flight: Unearthly. Class 1000 is space
Magnetic Control: monstrous
Life Support: The harness will protect him from the ravages of interstellar space with Class 1000 ability.
Self Repairing: Like much of the technology of New Genesis, the Astro-Harness is capable of self-repair and will repair itself completely as long as any portion of the device exists with Unearthly ability. This is believed to be from the influence of the Mother Box, because she has a link to the Source and a perfect memory of what the Astro-Harness is, she can recreate it from the native materials available around her.
Mother Box: Mother Boxes are the free-thinking, living computers. The true nature of these living computers/beings is unknown. Called Mother Boxes by their users/partners, these beings/devices possess wonderous powers and abilities not understood even by their users. How they came to be involved with the beings of New Genesis is not known. Mother Boxes have sacrificed themselves for causes they have believed in and are greatly respected by the people of New Genesis, speaking of them as loving, living entitites in the shape of a small box worn much like a common day pager on Earth. Orion’s mother box expends much of its energy keeping Orion’s rage in check. When she is not doing that she is maintaining Orion’s link to the Source and directing the energies of his Astro Harness. Only characters who are spiritually worthy can use Mother Boxes.
Danger Sense: Incredible
Life Sense: Remarkable
Omniscience: Motherbox has control of all Detection Powers, and Mental Powers regarding insight at Incredible rank.
Omni-knowledge: Motherbox has Amazing access to know just about anything needed at the time. A successful Yellow power FEAT roll is required.
Because Mother Box has the Leadership talent, she can automatically transfer her Karma to her user. In addition, through his affection for Mother Box, the user can transfer Karma back to her. To do so, the user must make a Psyche FEAT roll against. Excellent intensity. Only one such attempt is allowed per day.
Mother Boxes have been seen to: Access the Energy of the Source for various effects of Incredible rank such as:
Gravity Manipulation: Change the gravitational constant of an area,
Energy Transfer: Transfer energy from one place to another,
Emotion Control: Control the mental state of a host
Telepathy: Communicate telepathically with a host or other life form,
Regenerate Others: Manipulate the life-force of a host to sustain it past fatal injuries,
open or close boom-tubes. See special note below.
Machine Animation/ Control: Take over and control non-sentient machines, including the ability to evolve non-sentient machines.
Gestalt: Merge sentient beings into a single more powerful being,
Life Support: Sustain a life form in a hostile environment such as space, and many others.
Mother Boxes have an affinity for the Source and are believed to draw their power it.
Special: Any character that possesses both a Mother Box and a sample of X-Element can automatically create a Boom Tube capable of transporting him between dimensions and galaxies. Boom Tubes have the Warp power at Class 5000, Dimension Travel at Remarkable, and remain open approximately eight seconds (1-2 rounds).
Radion: Orion and all of the New Gods are vulnerable to a substance called Radion. It source is unknown and its effects are toxic only in sustained amounts or after explosive exposure. The average New God can be slain by an application of Radion from a Radion blaster or bomb. More advanced beings such as Orion, protected by their mother box, armor and sheer toughness, have been known to take two hits and survive. Radion, must be hard to come by, because if it was not, Darkseid would obviously equip more of his troops with it. Perhaps it requires the mysterious Element X to create it.
Psychological intolerant: Orion’s second weakness is a psychological one. He is unable to reconcile his destructive nature with the more gentle teachings of New Genesis. As such, personality traits such as patience or tolerance are in short supply with Orion. Highly intelligent, he simply has no real understanding of what it means to be weaker than someone else and confuses weakness with defenselessness. He will rarely use restraint unless someone is there to remind him to do so, and his initial solution to most problems is to destroy the offending organism, device, creature, parademon, etc. He has recently shown displeasure with being sent to Earth and has had to be physically restrained on more than one occassion.
