The Fatherbox, an Apokoliptian version of a Mother Box. Darkseid’s former aide Mortalla presents Orion with an Apokoliptian Father Box when he seemingly died. This box communicated by going "ting!" rather than "ping!", and was designed to turn him towards Darkseid.
A Fatherbox is mentioned as one of the "Seven Treasures" the New Gods left to the Earth's first superhero. It came in the form of two dice. It was called "the Foundation Stone of Manhattan" when mentioned to the Manhattan Guardian and served as the "god" of Limbo Town and called "Croatoan" by Klarion's people. Eventually, it was stolen by Klarion, who took it to the future.
