This week, we’re asking DC fans to submit their fun trivia facts about a character who is an archeologist suddenly teleported from Peru, Earth, to the planet Rann through a “Zeta-Beam”. Upon his arrival, he is attacked by one of the planet’s predators and rescued by a dark-haired woman called Alanna. She takes him to her father Sardath, who explains that the Zeta-Beam was transmitted to Earth in the hopes that whatever form of intelligent life lived there would trace it back to Rann, and he also theorizes that in the 4.3 years it took the Zeta-Beam to reach Earth, it was altered by space radiation into a transportation beam. Called on to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats using Rann’s technology, h grew to care for the planet and its inhabitants, especially Alanna. Eventually, the effects of the beam’s transportation wore off, automatically returning Strange to Earth at the exact point of departure – but not before Sardath had given him a schedule of beam firings, allowing him to periodically return to the planet. Using mathematical calculations, he was able to determine the exact time and the precise locations at which the Zeta-Beams would arrive. He travels the world and intercepts them, to defend Rann and be with Alanna.
Of course, we can only be talking about the one and only Adam Strange!
