Synopsis for “100 Years… Lost, Stolen or Strayed”
Superman has strange nightmares about having lived an entire lifetime on another planet. When he checks the age of the reconstructed rocket that brought him to Earth, he finds it is over a hundred years old. Unknown to Superman, when his rocket passed into the space-warp between Krypton and Earth, it fell into a parallel universe and landed on a planet populated by cavepeople. But radiations from his body propelled the inhabitants rapidly through social and technological advancement, until they were a space-age culture. Renamed Sonn, Kal-El grew up, married, sired a son, and became president of his world, until a virus of evil spread terror throughout it. Sonn’s son found his father at almost 100 years of age, scientifically reverted him to babyhood, placed him back in the refuelled rocket, and sent it back through the space-warp on a course to Earth. The civilization Kal-El left behind went back to caveman ways, and only two hours had passed in the Earth-One universe since his leaving it.
