A 2-issue Prestige miniseries exposing Jor-El's early trips to Earth via Kryptonian "UFOs"! Surely Jor-El wouldn't have sent his only son to Earth without thoroughly checking the planet, right?

Superman wrestles with the guilt of knowing his father may have done these things to protect him, and a team of UFOlogists who remember and research a UFO landing called "The Kansas Sighting" are out to prove that it is connected to the first appearance of the Man of Steel!

Having escaped from Black Tom [see Generation X #25], Franklin Richards, Leech, Artie Maddicks, Tana Nile, Howard the Duck and the Man-Thing now float on a chunk of earth through the Nexus of All Realities. Tiring of Howard's complaining, Tana Nile tosses him off their 'island' and the Duck falls through one of the doorways populating the Nexus. Howard lands in Nevernevernarniozbia, a land that appears to be an amalgam of many storybook worlds peopled by fairy tale versions of super-heroes and villains. The rest of the group follow through the same doorway, but are themselves followed by a living shadow called the Dark Hunter. The group is soon captured by a wicked version of the Scarlet Witch, then are reunited with Howard who has also been captured. Leech negates the powers of his captors, and he and his friends almost escape, but are stopped short by the Dark Hunter. To the shock of Howard and the rest, the Man-Thing speaks.

Still, when they stumble upon a device they should never be allowed to have, the results might prove more disastrous than if they actually knew what they were doing! A previously released story from the era rounds out the issue.
