Designing Principal:

In a world before there were superheroes the USA divided by the 39th parallel, a chasm; smack dab right thru good and evil, One naive boy discovers superpowers he reluctantly uses to save a friend from a megalomaniac leader of the Southern Oligarchy. Witnessing the near destruction of humanity he finds it safer in his world.

The USA not only divided physically at the DMZ, cutting a 2 mile wide no mans land from California to Connecticut, also a philosophical divide on what the USA should be.
