In the era of the Legion of Super-Heroes, there also exists a group of heroes known as the Wanderers. They've met the Legion before, and we've seen how they operate outside the limits of the United Planets to aid the citizens of the universe. But times have changed for this incredible group of wandering heroes, and their lives will never be the same. Who are they? Where did they come from? And what is the mysterious and dangerous destiny that awaits the Wanderers at the end of their mission?
A controller named Clonus finds the spacecraft of the Wanderers and finds them dead inside. He gathers samples from each body and returns to his own ship, cloning them from the genetic samples he's gathered. Unable to clone Celebrand, Clonus is able to clone the rest of the team with some genetic improvements, boosting their power, giving them their memories and aging them superficially to their early 20's. When he revives them completely, Clonus explains to the Wanderers that he saved them because of a threat that he feels they could defeat. Psyche learns, though, that the threat they face is something that Clonus feels responsible for.
