| Van Guardner's Shield Generator
|Device Type:||Defensive Energy Shield|
|Function:||Emits a protective barrier to deflect physical and energy-based attacks|
|First Appearance:||Ratman Chapter 10|
However, this had several drawbacks as he couldn't go on the offensive and he had a very limited amount of energy. This was proven critical during his confrontation with Ratman as his barrier was unable to hold up against repeated hits from Ratman's Breath-Laser.
At the same time that Ankaiser got an upgarade to his offensive powers, Van Guardner received an enhanced armored costume and a new shield generator in his right gauntlet. This new equipment not only has more power, but is able to generate a stronger barrier than can enclose Van Guardner and anyone nearby in a 360-degree sphere of protection. At this point, the barrier is powerful enough to easily withstand an exploding fuel tank from a semi-truck. Its maximum radius appears to be 30 meters.
