Adam Strange is marked for death in a Thangarian court. Moments before being decapitated, he's suddenly teleported out by the commander of the ship that found him. She returns his flight suit and demands that he exact vengeance on the people responsible for the supposed destruction of Rann.
After Zeta Beaming to the place where he supposes the Red Giant first existed, Adam finds a stellar research station, inside of which dwell the Omega Men. They take him in and explain their situation. A precog has been having visions about the world-ending "Omega Event" and they think Adam Strange has something to do with it. Also on the ship is some kind of massive structure within a containment field. Strange manages to break into it using his Rann security clearance, but before Doc can come to analyze it, the creature they call Seer has become feral and has Doc in his sights.
