One of the most sacred weapons and artifacts of the Bana-Mighdall Amazon tribe. The Bow of Ra was forged by Nephtys of the Egyptian pantheon for her father figure Ra. The bow harnesses the power of the sun itself to unleash unspeakable destructive power, usually in a bright flare of heat and light as thought by Jason Todd. The Bow usually falls into the hands of the Bana-Mighdall's mightiest of warriors, the Shim'Tar, to oversee its protection and use. They utilize the Bow to protect Bana-Mighdall and keep it from falling into the wrong hands, bringing unspeakable destruction to the world.
The Bow shares a special connection with those capable of wielding it. Such a bond they share allows capable users to summon it to them at any time or place. This link even extends beyond death, enabling it to revive a bygone wielder if need be, even if they have been dead for a considerable period of time. This link also empowers its weaponer with abilities far beyond those of a normal Amazon. In addition to enhanced strength and durability, they can also channel the bow's energy into blasts projected from their hands.
Also, the bow has a mind of its own. It is extremely picky about it's wielders, injuring or killing unworthy candidates. However, those it considered worthy can not only control its power, but are protected from it as well. Should it be used against another capable protector, the the arrows will not kill them, though they can still be injured.
However, its a double edged sword even in such rare cases. For if the user isn't strong enough to handle the regalia, they run the risk of being corrupted by it if not killed outright. Victims become mentally unhinged and seek to destroy everything in their path. One such victim was Akila. After using the Bana's sacred treasure to protect her home from invasion, she became consumed by the power. As a result, she had to be put down by Wonder Woman and Artemis. Another consequence comes when a Shim'Tar loses the ability to control the bow's power entirely. When that happens, any power the wielder took from the bow will build up inside them, causing them to eventually explode.
The bow, as its name implies, harnesses power from the very sun & stars themselves in order to aim and discharge a portable solar flare at any designated mark. Next to nothing can withstand it's incendiary gaze. For so much as lining targets up within the aim scope of the weapon users sights is enough to instantly cause them to spontaneously combust on command.
Firing off one of it's materialized quivers essentially lobs a chunk of the suns corona at the enemy. Flash incinerating everything within its path essentially splitting all of the targets composite atoms.
Certain users can draw out the bows power even when it isn't in their hands at the moment. One such handler being able to concentrate and fire off massive ray blasts of solar irradiated concussive energy from their hands. The link established with the artifact also greatly magnifies their natural physiological capabilities. Making its recipients tougher, faster and stronger than they normally are on their own.
