Archangel #4, Page 3

Page 3 explains JUNIOR's plan

Panel 1

In THE PILOT's version of the future, the second atomic bomb, dropped from the Bockscar, was dropped on Archangel, Russia instead of Nagasaki.

JUNIOR changes the bombing location, and that results in the Nu Earth that JUNIOR is from, so this is a bit of a temporal causality loop.

Panel 2

Panels 3-4
