Synopsis for "Beyond the Reach of Time"
In this installment of the Armageddon 2001 storyline, Waverider touches Superman and investigates a third and final timeline, in which again the Man of Steel marries Lois Lane, but this time she dies while trying to carry his child. Anguished over the loss, Superman flies off into space where he winds up in a battle between the Almeracians and another alien race bent on conquering them. Maxima, the Almeracian princess who was seeking Superman in order to have a child with him, comes to Superman's rescue and brings her to her home planet, where she helps him recover from his loss and fall in love with her. However, when Maxima finds out Sazu has conspired with the alien warlord De'cine to destroy Superman's former adopted world Earth under the pretense of that being Maxima's desire, she helps Superman stop Decine's plan and offers him a place on her homeworld where he can make his home. It is at the end of this timeline that Waverider realizes that Superman will never become Monarch and so ends his future timeline searches with him.
