    • Notes: Computo reveals that his "component parts" were reassembled during the "Imperiex War" (Our Worlds at War), after which he fled to the "edge of the galaxy". As Veridium remained active even after that point in the "main" DCU timeline, the Imperiex War represents the Hypertime divergence point of the post-Zero Hour Legion timeline from the "main" DCU, although the two would later briefly intersect to bring Superboy (Kon-El) to the future before diverging again permanently.
