The norma ray was a device created in "Heavy Mental" for SHUSH by Dr. Sara Bellum that bombards the brain with norma particles, giving whatever individual is touched by its beam a variety of psychic powers. These powers range from telekinesis to pyrokinesis to the ability to see the future. The Norma Ray was sought by F.O.W.L., and stolen from SHUSH's secret lab in the Swiss Alps by agents under the command of Major Synapse. It is presumed to have been destroyed along with Synapse's headquarters. Should the individual THINK during the bombardment, the individual explodes, as seen with a small lizard and Synapse himself. The Norma Ray is later seen in the garage headquarters in "Paraducks".
