Parents on a dying world send their baby to Earth in the 31st century, but instead of being accepted like Superman was, the people who find it decide to kill it. Back in the 21st century, a giant Brainiac-like robot is menacing Metropolis, but turns out to be a Time Diver sent by Brainiac 5 to restore Superman's memories and bring him back to the 31st century to help. Superman remembers back to when he first met the Legion back in high school. He travels to the 31st century via time bubble, but is attacked by Science Police officers. He's helped by some Legionnaires, but he discovers he has lost his power as Earth's sun has turned red.
