“Only Human” by Gareth Roberts (2005) — Doctor Who

Synopsis

A “dirty” rip in time and a Nean­derthal in 21st Cen­tu­ry Lon­don. That’s enough to draw the Doctor’s atten­tion. How­ev­er, when­ev­er and wher­ev­er he came from, the Doc­tor can’t get Das the Nean­derthal back to his own time with­out the effects of time trav­el killing him, so the Doc­tor enlists Cap­tain Jack Hark­ness to mind him for a month to accli­mate him to the 21st Cen­tu­ry while the Doc­tor and Rose inves­ti­gate the past, only to find a par­ty of sci­en­tists from the future exper­i­ment­ing on humanity’s ancestors.

Universo — “The Legion of Super-Heroes” Part 2

After his defeat at the hands of the Legion, Uni­ver­so was (appar­ent­ly) impris­oned but he (also appar­ent­ly escaped) and com­menced one of his cam­paigns to con­trol the Earth. Being the mas­ter plot­ter that he is, he wait­ed for or man­u­fac­tured rea­sons for the Legion to be away from the Earth before begin­ning his plan for world dom­i­na­tion. When the Legion­naires returned, they found that they were not only dis­band­ed, they were hunt­ed and outlawed!

Universo — “The Legion of Super-Heroes” Part 1

The foes of the leg­endary Legion of Super-Heroes are them­selves indeed legion and leg­endary: beings like the enig­mat­ic Time Trap­per and the mon­strous mas­ter com­put­er Com­puto, the dark magi­cian Mor­dru and even the infa­mous Dark­seid; groups like the Fatal Five, the Dark Cir­cle and the Legion of Super-Vil­lains; whole races like the Dom­i­na­tors, the Khunds and the Con­trollers. Most have had their fleet­ing vic­to­ries, their rare moments of tri­umph before the Legion defeat­ed them.

Yet there is one oppo­nent who can claim to have achieved his goal of world dom­i­na­tion against the oppo­si­tion of the Legion, not sim­ply once but twice, and both times for extend­ed peri­ods, to the point the Legion was forced to bat­tle him as under­dogs, some­thing no oth­er oppo­nent of the Legion through­out its long his­to­ry and many revi­sions has achieved.

That oppo­nent is the malev­o­lent hyp­no­tist (or telepath) Universo.
