Place of Birth
Force Works #21 (1996)
The joyous reunion was short lived as the time gate they came through began to implode. The alternate time line was dying and even though the Scarlet Witch promised to help Wonder Man and his mistrusting friends find a place in our world, she soon found out it was beyond her power to do so. As Cybermancer shouted protests and commanded her allies to kill the members of Force Works, Wonder Man ignored her orders, and told the Scarlet Witch of his world. In his world, Kang had been killed and Tony Stark along with Cybermancer had rebuilt the world. The world had become overrun by technology and artificial intelligences, like Ultron, wore flesh bodies and born in vats while men and women like Wonder Man had their identities stripped by surgery. He also explained how he spent the last decade of his life taking orders from Stark and maimed and killed at the monster's impulse, and he had enough of the bloodshed. The war-torn world the three beings came from began to take back its own, even as Wonder Man accepted Scarlet Witch's offer, and the techno-organic woman known as Cybermancer was its first victim as she was erased from the time stream. The second life to be claimed was that of Ultron, and as the body of Wonder Man was starting to fade out of existence he displayed the heroic traits of our own Simon Williams and sacrificed himself, in an attempt to save our world, by leaping back through the portal in order to seal it shut. However, he only delayed the process and it wasn't until the real Suzi Endo showed up with the Cybermancer suit and sent it back through the time gate shutting it down forever.
