QUOTE: "Remarkable, isn't it? Two eminent scientists, uh, three eminent scientists, watching two groups of super-human soldiers pit their skills in what may well prove a harbinger of wars to come." —Dr. Orloff

SUMMARY: After battling Blue Trinity in an effort to escape the Russian army and return with Red Trinity and three of the world's foremost speed scientists to the United States, the Flash is feeling pretty run down. The young hero has busier times ahead of him, however, with little or no time to spare. Superheroes from all over the world are being gathered for an event billed as "Millennium," an effort to save a group of potential immortals from a corps of evil androids known as Manhunters. Wally West can't help but break down, physically and emotionally, when his father comes to him proclaiming that he is a Manhunter, Wally's mother is dead, and he'll do anything to stop his son, the Flash, from participating in the Millennium effort.
