 [Luthor's eyes slowly open to a sight most unfamiliar. He's currently lying down on an old green sofa in a robe and pink bunny slippers quite beneath him. In front of him a wooden framed television playing a black and white western TV program. Lex raises himself up, rubbing his head. What two bit crook, super villain, or interdimensional being decided to kidnap me this week? Lex examined his surroundings. Everything in the living room was astoundingly antiquated. It was bringing back memories of Smallville that he preferred not to remember. Truly whoever had him now had a sick sense of humor. Lex picks up the nearest piece of technology he can find; a telephone. He dials his personal line, capable of being phoned within the solar system.]

This is Lex Luthor.

...well, well. Lex Luthor. They're only starting to bring in people from Metropolis now? I was expecting a few more Gothamites before they got to your city.

This is supposed to be a quantum locked line.

You're on the air with Edward Nigma! Sorry to disappoint you, old chum.

Hm. The Quizmaster, right?
I haven't heard of you since the last Society debacle.

The Riddler. Though I suppose we can't all be in the papers as much as you, Luthor.

Indeed.

But tell me, do you have anything to do with me waking up into this retro nightmare?
This feels like something one of The Batman's psychos would do...

Not at all. I'm just as trapped as you are.

Excuse me, girl. I don't know how you got on, but this is supposed to be a private line. I'm willing to forgive and forget if you tell me why I'm here and if you have anything to do with it.

Private, shmivite. You just broadcast your ass to an entire town full of weirdos, many who lack the impeccable sense of humor of yours truly.

You're here 'cause I don't fucking know, and yeah, I'm totally fucking behind it. This is all just my fucking final exam for Psychology.

I will say this. You've got some serious brass to talk to me like that.
Though you do prove that this phone line is not my private line nor is it secure within this... town.

Speculating this is some kind of alternate universe or dimension since you obviously haven't heard of me, what can you tell me about this place? I demand answers to this situation.

Doesn't take much to trash-talk some weirdo over the phone-- though, they are massive and to be envied, I will give you that.

It's, like, the 1950s, but sorta magic and shit. It's run by some crazy fuckers who like kidnapping people from all over the multiverse and making them families. They give you jobs and sometimes they give you back your powers and shit, but they also kill you. Like, a lot. It's cool though; you come back.

Hmph. I am the smartest man in the world where I come from, girl. I do not take kindly to your mocking tone, rest assured.

Sounds more like Hell to me. I wouldn't be surprised if that Imp with the derby hat had a hand in this...

And I totally aced my US History final last year, even though I put off studying until, like, the hour before to go on a drinking binge with my brother. So there.

Nah, no such thing. Whatever it is, you'll never guess who's in charge here. Not in a million fucking years!

[Lex lets off an annoyed grunt]

Right. I think I started this on the wrong foot. Being kidnapped coupled with my admitted disability of dealing with... children may have made me a tad irritable. I've already introduced myself. Now, who are you?

[She steps out so he can see her better and dips into a little curtsy] I'm the Childlike Empress-- most people make up a name for me here or just call me 'Empress'. You can call me whatever you like.
