- I've had it with being pushed around. I never wanted any of this to begin with, but since I'm stuck with it -- it's time I dictated a few terms of my own. Now hear this. I am not your slave. I'm a free man-- a fellow being, for grok's sake. I demand a little dignity -- a little respect. From now on, I get treated as an equal. Understood?

Synopsis for "Second Chances"
The Durlan and Phase switch centuries in this issue. Phase comes from the 30th century to the 20th, and the Durlan does vice versa. Also, Stealth is pregnant with Dox's child. Meanwhile, in the commotion caused by the arrival of Phase, Lobo breaks loose and attacks the tube containing the regrowing Dox.
- This issue is perhaps most significant for the disappearance of the Durlan. He pops out of the timestream and is replaced by Phase, thanks to the machinations of the Time Trapper. He will reappear in the 30th Century and become R.J. Brande, the founder of the Legion of Super-Heroes. This is part of an elaborate ploy to prevent the Mordruverse timeline from coming to power. Phase is ostensibly a temporally displaced amnesiac Phantom Girl, taken from time right before perishing in an explosion. This was the original plan for the character, as Tom Bierbaum stated in his blog. However, she will later be revealed to be Tinya's sister, Enya. Her identity is again changed after Zero Hour to be one of the Post-Zero Hour Apparition's three bodies.
