Synopsis for "The Hero of Metropolis"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- Superman navigation number 2995/35.
- Part of the Zero Hour crossover event.
- This is the first full appearance of Alpha Centurion, one of several characters introduced during Zero Hour. He appeared last in Zero Hour #3, and appears next in Zero Hour #1 before being wiped out of existence in Zero Hour #0. Later, Alpha Centurion will appear again in the regular timeline in Adventures of Superman #527.
- Traditionally, the 100 are a criminal organization. In Alpha Centurion's timeline, they are the dominant police force, similar to the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit.
- Superman is surprised to see Metropolis not in ruins. It was destroyed during recent events in Fall of Metropolis and Worlds Collide.
- Centurion's healing liquid, the aquavitae translates literally from Latin as "water of life".
- When the Centurion explains his origins, his first encounter with a plane and a rocket shuttle is reminiscent of Superman's first public act of heroism in Man of Steel #1. And his name, given to him by Lois Lane, references Lois giving Superman his name in Man of Steel #2.
