As a gargantuan threat looms over Microspace, the Micronauts are visited by an old friend who tells them their time is running out.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Larissa informs her fellow Micronauts that Baron Karza has begun to mobilize his army in the wake of a cosmic threat to the larger universe. With the possibility it could threaten Microspace as well, Larissa suggests that the team join their allies on Earth; however, Acroyear argues that with Karza gone, now is the time to begin a revolution. The rest of the Micronauts are split: Biotron sides with Larissa, while Microtron and Phenolo-Phi side with Acroyear. Phen questions if what happens in the larger universe will have any effect on them—a question answered by the arrival of Oziron Rael, former captain of the Micronauts now a Time Traveler!

Oz tells his friends that the universe as they know it will come to an end and that even though he and the other Time Travelers don't know what will come next, he can offer them a final gift: making their last moments last as long as they want. Larissa tells the Micronauts that she wants to spend whatever time remains adventuring with them. Oz assures her that the Micronauts will face the future as they've faced the past—together!

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When information about the Unicron back-ups was originally solicited, the Micronauts strip was going to be in issue #2 rather than issue #4.[1]

Continuity notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the multidimensional nature of this story, it is unclear where exactly it takes place in relation to the main Unicron event.
  • This story follows up on the end of Rom & The Micronauts, which saw Baron Karza return to Microspace and begin a new reign, which the Micronauts were determined to defeat.
  • Oz is back! Oz ascended to full Time Traveler status at the end of Micronauts: Wrath of Karza in order to repair the damage wrought by the Entropy Cloud, causing him to be absent for the Micronauts' most recent adventures with Rom in First Strike and Rom & The Micronauts.
