The part we see in ''The Signal'' is just a side experiment leading up to Dark City. Heck, someone even saves a fish!

[[WMG: Everyone is a clone]]
Consider how many people die during the movie. In fact, the Strangers don't seem to have any qualms about killing people despite supposedly needing them for experiments. This would imply that they've got a steady source of test subjects. So either they stop by the Earth every so often to kidnap more people; or they just make more when they need them.

After the events of the film she was abducted by the Strangers and forgot her former life and drug addictions. A hint of this might be the fact that she is seen standing on a peer with John watching (she was doing this in Harry's imagination a few times in RFAD)

If the city was designed from the memories of those abducted (which is likely), the technology level and aesthetics peg it as being in the 1950s or the very early 60s at the latest.

* It makes simple sense, the Stangers created the super suit to protect humanity and keep the human race alive so they can reap humans to do experiments in Dark City.

* The suit basically has an internal, simple version, of the Tuning mechanism more or less allowing the wearer to Tune giving him an array of seeming super powers.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Strangers are the same aliens from the Greatest American Hero]]
Both aliens use re-animated human corpses as bodies.

While nobody remembers Earth anymore, it's probably not too far away: the Strangers didn't go looking for any more races to populate their city, so it's probably still in our solar system. Once Murdoch took to asking what lay beyond the city, it would be a simple matter for him to make a big observatory telescope and start looking around to see what else might be orbiting this star. Once he found Earth, he kicked the engines into gear and propelled the whole city home. The reason we don't see a sequel detailing this is because this part of the story would actually be pretty boring to watch, as he and the other citizens start finding out all kinds of fascinating things about our world and its solar system that we viewers already know.

[[WMG: Mr.Hand was Riff-Raff]]
As in the body he inhabited was. On there way back to Transylvania after the events of the film, Riff Raff and Magenta end up encountering The Strangers. Things go awry as the alien life-forms clash, and Riff Raff ends up killed in the resulting confrontation. Then the Strangers decide to make use of the available body to give Mr.Hand a vessel. Upon awakening in his new form, Magenta is murdered by what used to be her brother and Mr.Hand takes his place among the ranks. His flares of temper, sadism, disobedience, and awareness of a better existence after the imprint could be remnants of Riff-Raff's personality resurfacing as the hive mind wanes and he gains more freedom and control of himself.
