The 10 Best TIME-TRAVELING HEROES of All Time! By Graeme McMillan & George Marston, Newsarama Contributors April 12, 2017 06:00pm ET Ti-iii-iii-ime Is On Their Sides 1 of 12 Time-Travelers are in the news today - from the reported casting of Josh Brolin as Cable for Deadpool 2 to what happened in this week's Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #18 - warning, SPOILERS at that link . Time-travel is a time-honored (pun intended) tradition in superhero comics books. In honor of recent news, here’s our list of the best time traveling superheroes of all time. WAVERIDER 2 of 12 The almost-forgotten hero from the alternate timeline of DC Comics' 1991 event Armageddon 2001 , Matthew Ryder escaped a dystopian dictator and certain death by traveling into the past with the ability to "read" potential futures of people just by touching them. Unfortunately, while he prevented his future from happening, he did so by accidentally causing the creation of his dictator nemesis a decade early, setting in motion events that led to the Zero Hour crossover years later. Waverider recently returned as the name of Rip Hunter's time ship in DC's Legends of Tomorrow - a unique live-action transition, to say the least. IRON LAD 3 of 12 Young Avengers' first leader sought to balance the scales for things that he'd do later in life — time travel can get weird, when it comes to cause and effect, remember — by adopting the guise of Iron Lad before he grew up to become Kang the Conqueror, who appears on our time-traveling villains countdown . As Iron Lad, he managed to lead the team's short-lived first incarnation before fate - or the time-traveling equivalent - asserted itself, taking him to his destiny as one of the Avengers' most famous, and most deadly, foes. His career may not have been the longest, but his aim was true… And with the Young Avengers remaining fan favorites even without a current series, his legacy will live on for some time. DEATHLOK 4 of 12 The original Deathlok was Luther Manning, a man from the post-apocalyptic future world of 1990 — well, he was created in 1974 — who traveled back to the present to find himself teaming up with the Thing and Nick Fury (after earlier clashes, of course) to try and undo the world in which he came from. Although I don't remember 1990 being particularly apocalyptic — admittedly, I was younger at the time and my attention was elsewhere — it's fair to say that he didn't really do anything too bad to the future, considering how it turned out. Good job, Luther! GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 5 of 12 No, not the current team, but the original 1969 lineup which decided to try and save the world of the 31st century by traveling back to our time and recruiting some more heroes to the cause. Along the way, they had numerous chances to accidentally screw up things, but always managed to avoid it — even when that meant avoiding spilling the beans to Vance Astrovik, the future New Warrior known as Justice, that one of their members was… Well, an alternate version of himself. All that and they defeated the Badoon invasion that was the reason behind their formation. You've got a lot to live up to, Groot. BISHOP 6 of 12 One of the two most time-travel-y X-Men, Lucas Bishop didn't really intend to be a time traveler; instead, it was more a matter of doing his job as one of the XSE (Xavier's Security Enforcers) and following a bad guy through a time portal. Like Rachel Summers, he watched as the future he'd arrived from became more and more likely, but unlike Rachel, he decided to do something about it… Namely, try and kill Hope, even if that meant traveling through time again and hunting down Cable to make sure it happened (actions that got him on our time-traveling villains list, as well). He failed, of course, and realigned himself with the X-Men once again, appearing as part of the line-up of the upcoming Astonishing X-Men - in his original XSE duds, no less. GREEN LANTERN 7 of 12 What's that? You don't tend to think of Green Lantern as a time-traveler? Clearly, you've never heard of Pol Manning, Earth's Greatest Hero in the year 5700 — better known, perhaps, as Hal Jordan. The surreal existence of Manning is one of the stranger pieces of GL lore: When in need of a hero to save the world, the governments of the Earth of 5700 would simply kidnap Jordan from his own time, wipe his memory and give him the temporary (fictional) identity of Manning before returning him to his rightful time, place and mindset. Sure, Jordan may not have been in control of — or even fully aware of — his time traveling double life, but that doesn't mean that he didn't serve as a Time Cop as well as a Space Cop when the situation demanded it. THE FLASH 8 of 12 With the creation of the wonderfully-named "Cosmic Treadmill," The Flash mythos gained a whole new dimension as the speedy superhero was suddenly given the ability to travel through time, meaning that his adventures could take place any when as well as any where. Of course, it was only a matter of time before this ability would end up being exploited in the wrong way, leading to a butterfly effect mix up that created Flashpoint and the "New 52," but for that brief period before everything went wrong, the Flash could be relied upon to clean up messes all through time. And true to form, Flash's CW TV show has dealt with time travel extensively - even loosely adapting Flashpoint . SUPERBOY 9 of 12 For a teen who'd grow up to become the world's greatest superhero, it's almost disappointing to discover that it took three time-traveling teens from the 30th (later, 31st) century to introduce Clark Kent to the mysteries of the timestream. Once the Legion of Super-Heroes entered his life, Superboy became a regular passenger on the cross-time express, either by Time Bubble or under his own steam but somehow always managing to stay away from any knowledge of his future self's actions, which may end up being his most impressive feat, considering just what Superman ended up accomplishing during his long career. CABLE 10 of 12 To try and get into the reasoning behind Cable and his various time-travel escapades would be both exhausting and confusing, so let's just leave it at this: At no point during his entire decades-long career as the X-Men family's favorite techno-organic enforcer has he managed to entirely undo the time stream by needlessly slaughtering another superhero, even with the amount of heavy artillery he carries around at all times. Cable is getting his own ongoing series again as part of "ResurrXion," and will reportedly be played by Josh Brolin in the upcoming Deadpool 2 . BOOSTER GOLD 11 of 12 Perhaps comic books' top time-traveling superhero, Booster Gold may have started off his superheroic career with one simple time jump, but since then, he's teamed with Rip Hunter — who may or may not have been Booster's son — to protect the timestream from unwanted changes, only to fall victim to the rewriting of all DCU history via the “New 52,” where he's traveled into the past to meet Jonah Hex, and later went back to the future as part of Justice League 3001 . Booster played a key role in the DC event “Convergence,” but hasn’t been seen since the advent of “Rebirth.” However, with the events of this week's Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #18 , could he be waiting in the wings? 1 of 12
