Synopsis for "Time, Time, Time--See What's Become of Me"

Norm and Ray take in the Ivy Town Festival while sinister forces watch them. Ray becomes intangible, then disappears. An agent of Chronos has teleported Ray into a Transfer Tube in the back of a van, while C.I.A. Agents frantically look for him, their radios and vehicles dead.

The Atom wakes up back in the house he shared with Jean, and relives some his worst memories. Chronos has Ray Palmer Time Tripping inside the Transfer Tube, to shatter his mind. He wants revenge for past defeats, though those defeats taught him more about the nature of time.

Back when the Blue Beetle smashed his Geochronic Field Generator[1], Chronos had been trapped 200 million years in the past, and only barely managed to cobble together a Statis Belt out of his remaining costume's components. He went into stasis, and awakened seven years before he left, and plotted revenge on the heroes.

The Atom is reliving all his worst memories -- the death of his dog, his father, his past failures, but doesn't give up hope. The memory of Princess Laethwen fill Ray with hope, and the anger at losing New Morlaidh drive him back to consciousness, and he escapes the Transfer Tube. Technicians fall left and right as he fights his way to Chronos -- but Chronos has just seen the news from Australia: Invasion! and proposes an alliance.
