Synopsis for "This Is The World We Live In"
Traci Thirteen's family are living in Paris. While having breakfast, suddenly, Traci's mother has a premonition, hugs everyone, and tells her daughter to teleport herself and Dr. Thirteen away.
Less than a minute late, all of Europe is underwater. The Traci and her father land in a field, but the strain is such that she passes out. Everything she knows has changed in a flash.
Today, a matured Traci is meditating in an underground base in Switzerland. She has recently been flashes of another life, in which she and her father solve mysteries, and in which she had a boyfriend in a suit of armour. But this is not true. Dr. Thirteen comes to her, and they have an argument. She teleports away, going to New York to talk to Madame Xanadu. The two discuss the world, and how it became so thoroughly wrong. Madame Xanadu muses on the Justice Society during the Second World War, and how they could have been remembered forever, if only they'd been... faster. She also mentions that a mysterious alien rocket brought a hail of meteors down on Metropolis. Xanadu tell her to have hope, but Traci can't.
Teleporting back to the base, Traci finds a large computer awaiting a password. On a hunch, she inputs her mother's name. The screen accepts this, and shows a master plan to use a spaceborne laser cannon to destroy two cities - the current headquarters of Atlantean and Amazon power in New Themyscira. Aghast, she hears a debate in the next room, as the world's regional representatives gather together on whether to use HIVE's laser weapon to destroy the Amazons and the Atlanteans. The vote is carried, with the deciding vote being Dr. Thirteen. Traci bursts out of hiding and demands that the group not take a decision toward genocide. When this does not work, she disrupts their electronics. Using her magic, Traci is about to escape the group altogether when her father pulls a syringe and doses her. She promptly falls into an induced sleep...
