Publisher’s Summary

‘I love her,’ the Doctor said.
‘Of course you do, she’s your daughter.’

Earth in the nineteen-eighties is a battleground. Rival alien factions have travelled from the far future to pursue their vendetta.

With UFOs filling the skies, a giant robot stalking the Derbyshire hills, and alien hunters searching for the mysterious Last One, the Doctor is the only man who can protect the innocents caught in the crossfire.

But old scores are being settled, the fate of a Galactic Empire is at stake, and, against his will, the Doctor is drawn into a decade-long war that will strike at those he holds most dear.

The Doctor has lost his memory, his friends, his past and his TARDIS.

All he has now is the love of his daughter.

But will even that be taken from him?

History

Father Time is the commander of the Super Human Advanced Defense Executive (S.H.A.D.E.), a Patriot Act-funded covert operations group employing metahumans to fight terrorism. His own concerns appear to have at least as much to do with consolidating power as with national security. In Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters #1, he assassinates a presidential candidate applying too much scrutiny on S.H.A.D.E., and replaces him with a double, Gonzo the Mechanical Bastard.

Father Time first appeared in Grant Morrison's Seven Soldiers of Victory: Frankenstein #3, temporarily pressing the undead assassin into S.H.A.D.E. service. During the event known as World War III, Time and S.H.A.D.E. try to stop the rampaging Black Adam, and Adam rips off Time's face.

Time, confined to a hospital bed, then metamorphoses into a new form. He next appeared in the Infinite Crisis tie-in The Battle for Blüdhaven, and appears to be a major player in the new Freedom Fighters miniseries.

Father Time is reborn in a new body on New Year's Day to accompany the new year. In Frankenstein, he appears as a young black man wearing a costume resembling The Spirit's, but wearing a bowler hat. This is his appearance when Black Adam rips his face off. The Father Time shown in Freedom Fighters, on the other hand, is an elderly white man with long hair and a Buffalo Bill beard, except for the seventh and eighth issues, in which he resembles an African-American Doctor Occult.

For most of the new Uncle Sam and The Freedom Fighters series, Father Time was depicted as a villain, but in issue eight he reveals that he knew the danger Gonzo posed all along, and created the new versions of Doll Man, Phantom Lady, etc, to bring Uncle Sam forth, make his new team heroes in the public eye, and defeat Gonzo's plan. When Gonzo is defeated, Time takes himself and his S.H.A.D.E. soldiers into the timestream.

Information

Auld Lang Syne

The True nature of the mysterious entity called Father Time is unknown. Is he an ancient god? An extra-dimensional being? A stage in the life-cycle of a chrono-entity? A personification of time manifested out of the collective human sub-conciousness? No one knows for certain, and it will likely remain a subject of debate long into the future.

Initial Contact

Heroes, villains, all are welcome. For I am Father Time, and a grave threat is upon us all...

Badge Mission

Rescue Baby New Year from Snaptooth!

Briefing

I am Old Father Time, and as this year comes to a close, I must pass my mantle onto the Baby New Year, so that time may continue to flow. But that scoundrel, the Red Cap Snaptooth, has kidnapped the Baby New Year, and plans to take him to the Fey lands! If that happens, time will grind to a halt. Heroic hopes and villainous plans, all will come to naught! So, I ask the mightiest of mortals, whether they be hero or villain, to help me and rescue Baby New Year!

What's more, heroes and villains may work together on this mission, such is its grave import!

You will have to fight your way through a cold and wintry realm. Snaptooth has gathered Tuatha, the Winter Horde, and other Red-caps to him. You will have to defeat the Winter Guard in order to open the icy caverns where Baby New Year is being held. Once you have him, bring him back to the fairy ring to make your escape.

And do not forget that heroes and villains may work together in this task!

We've gone and done the greatest crime,
We've captured little Baby Time!
We'll hold him 'till he's old and ill,
To keep the world in winter's chill!

So shiver, witches, in the cold,
And pumpkin-heads will rot with mold!
The human world will freeze and slow,
And people will be filled with woe!

For human time will be like Fey,
Unchanging! Always time to play!,
They'll know that this was Snaptooth's plan,
We'll terrorize the world of man!

We've gone and done the greatest crime,
We've captured little Baby Time!
You'll never save the little year
For Red-Caps are the ones you'll fear!

Mission Objective(s)

It looks like winter has come to Croatoa.

  • Rescue Baby New Year!
    • Find the key to the cave!
    • Rescue Baby New Year!

You have rescued Baby New Year!

A key of ice
This glittering ice forms a key

That can set Baby New Year free!
