"Traveling to the Past to the Save the Future, Adam Retro drives the Last Interceptor, the only vehicle capable of riding the Infinite Highway through time in a desperate race against the end of the world itself..."


A soldier from a far distant future when the ragged remnants of humanity are facing certain extinction, Adam Retro uses humanity's last time machine, the Last Interceptor, to travel through Earth's history, attempting to prevent the final doom that awaits our species.

Constantly altering the past, Adam Retro's own timeline is constantly changing, his personal history, his parentage, even extending to the nature of the doom he's trying to prevent. Traveling through time, altering its history, the only thing that is certain is that nothing is certain...


Adam Retro's appearance varies as his personal history changes. Usually he's tall and lean, with an unexpressive face hidden behind wrap-around mirrorshades. He generally dresses in a metal-studded leather coat and often has a pink streak in his hair that, in most versions of his history, is natural.

The only truly unchanging thing about him is that he carries the same gun, The Annihilator, the Uncreated Weapon...


Adam Retro drives the Last Interceptor, the last surviving example of the Omega-Series Interceptors created in an age of high technology plagued by attacks by time travelers, to intercept other time machines. It is nearly indestructible and travels through time by accessing the Infinite Highway, a space outside of time and then re-entering linear time at various weak-points or "Off-ramps". All the other interceptors have recorded and observed histories, only this one is left unaccounted for.

He carries the Annihilator, an incredibly powerful energy weapon, capable of destroying most mundane matter and of effecting creatures of pure energy or partially shifted out of our time or dimension. The Annihilator is an Uncreated object, existing as a time loop, having been picked up by Adam from where a later version of himself dropped it.
