A giant box appears in Toronto. The Challs, accompanied by Swamp Th1ng and Deadman, investigate. When Deadman tries to enter the box it opens and releases a monster. After they kill the monster, they haul the box and carcass to Challenger Mountain where tests indicate the box is from the future. The heroes fly to Rip Hunter's desert lab, which appears abandoned. Swamp Thing pushes a button and Rip's Time Sphere appears with a skeleton inside. They use the time sphere to travel to 12,000,000 AD. Amidst crumbling ruins they are surrounded by future-men and Rip Hunter in rags and a crown.
