Event Timeline


Michael Tenicek, like so many men, was haunted by the dreams of a woman, one he could remember vividly--except for the fact that he had no idea who she was, how he might know her, or if she ever existed.


"He never met her. He knows he never met her."

Yet, somehow, someway, he did know her name was Miranda. It was a name as vivid as the nightly dreams that plagued him. The visions and activities of the dreams were so intense, they disturbed his daily rhythms, disrupting his focus and productivity.

Thinking she might be part of some faded memories of the past, he sought out and pestered old friends and acquaintances, hoping for some kind of information, a confirmation that might be a clue to this mysterious woman's identity.

Fate in the form of the The Hanged Man intervened in Michael's tormented quest. The wispy guardian of Shadow Hill showed Tenicek images from the past. A dramatic encounter between The All-American and The Time-Keeper which led to an attempt to completely unravel time. The day was saved by a gathering of heroes but, as the Hanged Man noted, there were some issues left unresolved. One of these was Miranda.


Due to a slight change in historical events, her grandparents never met and she was never born. Tenicek was given the option of remembering her (and recognizing that they could not be together) or forgetting her completely. His choice is revealed here...
