Synopsis for "Going Nowhere"

While snoozing in his hammock, Superboy has a nightmare about being a baby, being surrounded by all the super hero females on the beach, telling him over and over that he will never grow up. To shake off the nightmare, Superboy takes a little spin through the sky around the islands. He sees an atoll that he had not seen before, and a young woman on a raft is rowing towards it.

The girl, whose name is Darling, leads Superboy to the atoll, where there is a large band of young men and children. Darling brought them newspapers and magazines about the world at large. The children remark that they have not aged since they have arrived. In the middle of all this, the children start a game of war. Superboy plays along -- but then a band of soldiers, from all eras of human history, attack and capture Darling and one of the boys named Scott. Superboy disperses the attackers and decides to track the rest down.

What he finds is surprising. The attack was staged, and Darling was part of it. They see the island as a paradise, one where "lost boys" can live in peace and old soldiers can keep their honor and dignity of the last minutes of their respective wars. The ones who get homesick are tagged for capture and are sent back to the real world -- but the kids themselves think that it's a real war.

Superboy says his goodbyes and takes Scott with him back to the real world. Looking back, the atoll has vanished.
