Jimmy Olsen is temporarily given stretching powers by the Eradicator. The use of these powers is extremely painful; fortunately, they are mercifully short-lived.

Restored to life by the Eradicator, Superman leads a group of heroes to defeat Mongul. NOTES: This story establishes the significance of Superman's visits to the Pocket Universe to the course of 20th century history. If not for his encounter with the Pocket Universe Phantom Zone villains, Superman would not have exiled himself into space, would not have encountered the Eradicator, and would not have been revived by the Eradicator following his battle with Doomsday. In the absence of Superman, Mongul might have succeeded in transforming the Earth into a new War-World, with obvious consequences for the course of history. Superman v.2 #82 (Sept. 1993)
Timber Wolf is returned to the 30th century by Brainiac 5 and Rond Vidar. Legion v.4 Annual #4 (1993)

NOTES: This story takes place concurrently with the events of Legionnaires #16 (July 1994). Valor #15 (Jan. 1994)
D.O.A.: Lori is revealed to be Glorith. She offers to cure Valor if he will rule the universe at her side. NOTES: This encounter between Valor and Glorith takes place before they would otherwise have met in this timeline. Valor #16 (Feb. 1994)
As a result of the events of Valor #16, a divergent Glorith timeline was created in which Glorith approached Valor before their historical first meeting and inadvertently caused his death. The events of this divergent timeline, which partially coincided with Zero Hour, did not take place in the original Glorith-dominated timeline. Most of these events did not take place in the post-Zero Hour reboot timeline, either.
  Glorith reality - divergent: D.O.A.: Glorith reveals that she was responsible for Valor's lead poisoning. He refuses to join her and dies. His death alters the course of history The SW6 Valor emerges from the timestream. NOTES: The SW6 Valor's appearance here follows his disappearance in Legion v.4 # #37 (E12.92). Valor #17 (Mar. 1994)
  Glorith reality - divergent: D.O.A.: The SW6 Brainiac 5 informs the SW6 Valor that the only way to preserve history is to relive his entire life. Valor #18 (Apr. 1994)
  Glorith reality - divergent: The SW6 Valor reluctantly agrees to relive his life, but learns that he has only 48 hours to fulfill his destiny. Valor #19 (May 1994)
  Glorith reality - divergent: The SW6 Valor tries to fulfill his destined historical role by "seeding" the worlds of the future United Planets with former Dominion prisoners, years before he originally did so. He meets Krinn Magar (an ancestor of Rokk Krinn) and learns that the people of Braal were not originally from Earth. The Linear Men warn him that he has run out of time. Valor #20 (June 1994)
  Glorith reality - divergent: The Linear Men split Valor into multiple chronal duplicates to speed up his campaign, but it is too late. Glorith sends Valor to the Bgztl Buffer Region, the final part of his destiny. NOTES: This is the final 20th century appearance of Valor in the divergent Glorith timeline. Valor #21 (July 1994)
Iris Allen returns from the 30th Century with her grandchild Bart (Impulse II), the son of Don Allen. She enlists the help of Wally West (Flash III) in helping Bart to control his super-speed powers. NOTES: Although these events take place concurrently with Zero Hour and the divergent Glorith timeline, they took place in essentially the same way in the original Glorith timeline, the divergent timeline, and the post-Zero Hour reboot timeline. Flash #91-92 (6-7.94)
  Glorith reality - divergent: Zero Hour: Believing that Phase is actually Tinya Wazzo, Ultra Boy travels to 20th Century to find her, only to learn that she is really Tinya's cousin, Enya Wazzo. NOTES: Enya Wazzo first appeared on the final page of Legion v.4 Annual #1 (1990), although she was not named. L.E.G.I.O.N. #68-69 (7-8.94)
  Glorith reality - divergent: Zero Hour: Jo Nah returns to the 30th century, leaving Phase in the 20th century. Vril Dox loses control of L.E.G.I.O.N. to his hyper-intelligent son, Lyrl. NOTES: It is unclear if Jo's encounter with Enya Wazzo took place in the post-Zero Hour reboot timeline. L.E.G.I.O.N. #70 (Sept. 1994)
Zero Hour: After vanishing from the Legion's era, a mysterious Superboy appears in modern Smallville and clashes with the cloned Superboy before fading away, apparently forever. NOTES: Superboy's appearance here immediately follows his appearance in the 30th century in Valor #22 (Aug. 1994). It is unclear if he is the Pocket Universe Superboy, or if he is from some other, similar parallel timeline. The clone Superboy meets him again (and visits his timeline) in Superboy v.3 #61-64 (3-6.99) . Superboy v.3 #8 (Sept. 1994)
Lyrl Dox is stripped of his hyper-intelligence. Captain Comet becomes the new leader of L.E.G.I.O.N. Vril Dox II retires. R.E.B.E.L.S. #17 (Mar. 1996)
Valor returns to Earth and remains there for several years. NOTES: These are the events that would have taken place if not for the events of the "D.O.A." storyline in Valor.

Daxamite troublemaker Dev-Em arrives on Earth and clashes with Valor. After Dev-Em nearly succumbs to lead poisoning, Valor sends him forward in time in search of a cure. NOTES: Dev-Em was described as a Daxamite from the 20th century ("the third great survivor of the 20th century") in Legion v.4 #6 (Apr. 1990). His full history was told in Who's Who, but was never reflected in any actual comic book story. (Adventures of Superman #478, 5.91), (Who's Who #9, (May 1991)
Glorith traps Valor in the Bgztl Buffer Zone for a thousand years for rejecting her advances. After his disappearance, he becomes a legend and an almost religious figure throughout much of the galaxy. (Legion v.4 Annual #2, 1991)
The Future
21st Century Earth is devastated by World War III, which culminates in a limited nuclear conflict. The population is cut nearly in half and it takes almost a century before order is fully restored. Many records of the 20th century are lost. NOTES: The existence of an atomic war in the Legion's timeline was first suggested by Saturn Queen in the Adult Legion story in Superman #147 (Aug. 1961). History of the DCU #2 (Nov. 1986)

2645 Central City historian John Fox travels back to the 20th century to warn the first three Flashes of the menace of Manfred Mota and ultimately become the Flash of the 27th century. One of the scientists controlling Fox's time travel apparatus is a man named Vidar, who is killed by Mota. NOTE: The John Fox sequence of this story was written by Legion fan (and future writer) Mark Waid, so Vidar is almost certainly intended to be an ancestor of Universo and Rond Vidar (also fascinated with time travel). Fox later became a member of the far-future Justice Legion A.
