Mark Waid and Barry Kitson
1.7.6 - The classic Rip Hunter... Time Master appeares as a phantom in the Planet Krypton Restaurant. (Note: This character could be easily mistaken for Jor El due to the yellow coloring of the sleve puffs. They should be red. But non-the-less the design of the character is Rip Hunter.)

Suicide Squad #10 (August 2002)
"Time Passages"
Giffen, Severin, Medina, Sanchez
Rock drops by Bulldozer's house to chat and catch up on some recent events. Bulldozer and Rock start talking about the dinosaurs in a movie that's playing on TV and they remember back to some events that happened back in 1959.
10.12.1-10.15.6 - Rock and Bulldozer are sent to Area 51 and briefed on a new mission involving Dinosaur Island. They meet up with Dr. Rip Hunter and he explains to them the problem. Afterwards, the team members hash out the details and break down the problem. In short, "there's a temporal rift that's begun to expand" and it has formed "a rip in time." It's hard for the men to fathom, but they just take Dr. Hunter's word for it since he is the bases resident time expert. There mission is to got to Dinosaur Island, and use the Time Sphere to travel back in time so that they can seal off the rift before it can adversely affect the space-time continuum. Interestingly enough, when asked how it feels to travel through time, Rip Hunter answers, "It's like... ummm... ...Like being tickled from the inside out."
10.16.1-10.17.4 - After the group lands in the prehistoric past, Bulldozer stumbles outside and throws up on the ground. Rip tells the man that "you're going to have to clean that up back there. We have to take it with us." Bulldozer asks, "Joking, right?" Rip Hunter replies, "Dead serious. That's a potential biological contaminant you've laid out. Unless you'd rather change screwing up evolution as we know it."
10.17.5-10.21.6 - The men are shortly ambushed by a pack of Raptures and Bulldozer stumbles into the very time rift that they were there to close. Rock chases after him and the men awake back at Area 51 in the hospital. During the questioning it is learned that Rip Hunter told the military where the men would be, but no answer is given to whether the time rift was closed.
10.22.1-10.22.7 - Back in the present, the movie raps up and Bulldozer asks Rock if he knows the scientist guy's name. After some thinking, Rock says, "Rip, okay?! Rip... ...Something." The men then decide to order a pizza and finish their night.
