- The time travel-distortion caused an "evil" variation of reality that was similar in respects to Star Trek's mirror universe, but with elements of DC Comics characters. In particular, Space Ranger Rick Starr was, in DC's primary reality, a classic science fiction hero from the 1950s. In his unaltered history, he is a wealthy heir who uses his fortune to make himself the Sol system's defender. Various versions of DC's comics depict this occurring in the 22nd century.
