Professor Ling introduced his new Chronos Time Transporter to UNECOM, explaining that it could transport matter to any time and place on Earth. They prepared to send a test team over, but Ling was unaware that the Renegades were spying on the conversation. Cy-Kill tasked BuggyMan with creating a diversion to draw the Guardians away from their appointment, allowing Cy-Kill, Cop-Tur and Crasher to turn up and simply pretend to be Guardians. Ling was completely fooled and prepared to send them back to Tuscon, Arizona on August 1st, 1971 - unaware that they were planning to kill Matt Hunter, A.J. Foster and Nick Burns as children. The real Guardians arrived just as they were about to arrive and the resulting battle saw the Renegades sent back to Rome in 217B.C. Leader-1, Turbo, Scooter, Matt and Nick followed them into the past, leaving Path Finder and A.J. with Ling. The Renegades were able to pass as Roman Gods, monkeying with history and causing Ling's lab to change - with Path Finder finding a newspaper stating Cy-Kill was now governor of America; she and A.J. then went back to 217 B.C. and were able to help return time to its' proper course. However BuggyMan then turned up at the lab and helped his fellow Renegades escape when they returned to the present, also short-circuiting the Time Transporter. As Ling mourned the loss of his life's work Leader-1 callously remarked that tinkering with time was dangerous anyway, even though he had been really interested in the machine earlier.Time Wars
