Synopsis

The Legionnaires travel to the past to find out the story behind an ancient artifact which refers to a war between Earth and Krypton. The half that goes to Earth's past finds space travellers colonizing ancient Atlantis; the other half accompanies a group of Kryptonians who leave anti-scientific Krypton for Earth. While the Atlanteans and Kryptonians fight, Brainiac 5 discovers why Earth's air irritates the Atlanteans and helps them adapt to life under the sea. Later, back in the future, Superboy finds more artifacts that explain what happened to the Kryptonians.

Notes

DC credits this story to Edmond Hamilton in The Legion of Super-Heroes Archives (1991 series) #4, and Bob Hughes confirms the identification. We formerly had credited this story to Jerry Siegel. (March 2007)
