The Time Trapper is one of the most powerful and relentless foes to ever face the Legion of Super-Heroes. While his true identity is currently unknown, two different incarnations of him have been revealed to be future versions of Cosmic Boy and Superboy-Prime. Nothing is known of the Time Trapper's history. A being of great power, he first encountered the Legion and arose their suspicions when he constructed his "Iron Curtain of Time," which prevented the Super-Heroes from traveling more than 30 days into the future. Then, disguised as Chief Wilson of the Science Police, the Trapper nearly tricked the Legion into handing over the Concentrator. The deadliest weapon in the galaxy. When he was unmasked, he retreated to his citadel at the end of time, where his foes could not follow.

Constant Battle with LegionEdit

In subsequent encounters, the Trapper always managed to escape the Legion's grasp, after one adventure, the Super-Heroes thought they had captured him, unmasking him as a renagade controller and imprisoning him on Takron-Galtos, only to find out later that their captive was merely a stand-in for the true Trapper and commanded only a fraction of his power. This second failed Trapper was subsequently executed by his master. The Time Trapper's master stroke against the Legion came when a trip by Cosmic Boy and Night Girl into the past revealed evidence that the fabric of time had been tampered with upon investigation, the Legion discovered that the entire 20th Century reality that birthed Superboy, their greatest ally and inspiration, was in fact created by the Trapper. His final gambit involved trapping the Legionnaires in 20th century Smallville and destroying them along with the town. Superboy prevented the Trapper from succeeding, though at the cost of his own life. Several Legionnares, intent on avenging Superboy, finally found a way to break the Iron curtain of time and followed the Trapper to his era. They were nearly slain by their opponent who destroyed one of Duo Damsol's bodies before being completely and utterly defeated himself by the Infinite Man in a battle arranged by Brainiac 5 and Rond Vidar.
