Adam Strange (2004) 1-A by DC
"Planet Heist, Part 1 of 8"
Apparently, Adam Strange has trashed part of the Gotham City, and a police officer is questioning him about it. The police man doesn't believe that he is an outer space man and calls him "Space Ranger", a reference to another sci-fi character during the 50s. The police officer allows Adam to tell his story and he starts recounting. He talks about Rann, and it's spiraling buildings. However, the people on Rann have their gene pool deteriorated because they are too reliant on machines. He mentions the Zeta Beam would wear off, and at times he would catch schedules of the Zeta Beam to stay with his family. He continues on about the Zeta Beam, how Sardath had allowed the Zeta Beam to teleport and keep them there permanently. He went back to Earth to tie some loose ends up, but the Zeta Beam never came back to take him. So he stayed in Gotham City and asked Superman to find some information about what's happening on Rann. He comes back informing Adam that Rann's primary star went supernova, destroying Rann.
Adam was devastated by the loss of Alanna, his wife. Then, the cop and his partner take him to thier car, to take him to Arkham Asylum. However, he unlocks his cuffs and knocks out the two cops. Seeing a glow, it reminds him of the Zeta Beam and he runs to it. There, he finds two aliens, one in a modified suit of his. They scan him for Zeta radiation and affirm his identity and they then admit they destroyed his apartment. The aliens then intimidate him asking about Rann and its demise. They intimidate him by threatening to throw him into the air, but he uses his knowledge of combat to disarm the alien and rips off his jetpack. Adam uses the jetpack and veers out of control because it is too large for him, but he regains control and finds a couple blasters in the jetpack. Adam starts firing at the other alien and he fires back with a missile.
