Since this first issue Captain Boomerang has obtained a wide variety of trick boomerangs.

Brightest Day

During the Brightest Day arc in which Captain Boomerang (Digger) was revived he gained the ability to make boomerangs out of pure energy.

These boomerangs packed an explosive bunch and could be created out of thin air; however, after Digger completed his task for the Entity he lost the ability to create these boomerangs.
