Young archaeologist Adam Strange was fleeing for his life from a band of South American savages when he suddenly found himself on the surface of an alien planet Rann.
The inhabitants of Rann were suffering from genetic entropy and needed similar beings to save the fate of the species.
Strange was hit by a Zeta Beam which instantly transported him 4.5 light-years to Rann, but the rays effects dissipated and he would be beamed back to Earth. He had to calculate where the beam would next strike Earth to return to his adopted planet. In time the beams effect became permanent and Strange made Rann his home.
