Big Barda using the Mega-rod as a gun.

A mega-rod was the personal weapon of Big Barda.

Powers and abilities[]


And as a quarterstaff.

The mega-rod was a versatile tool and weapon. At its most basic, it could fire powerful force beams, or simply be used as an indestructible club. Barda also used the rod as a thruster when mounted on her flying disks. Though not heavy, the rod required the strength of a New God to fire without being knocked backward by the recoil. The rod could also extend in length many times, allowing it to be used as a quarterstaff, or a brace for a collapsing structure.
