When the Destroyer comes, worlds fall. Trauma gave Lieve the ability to fly and manipulate energy fields and she joined the Wardens in protecting her world. Now the Destroyer of Worlds has come down from the sky, and to save her world she must confront her past and the nature of her powers themselves. Power Outage is a superhero short story originally featured in The Doomsday Chronicles, a Future Chronicles anthology.

All I ever wanted to do was fly with my family and help save the world. But I didn't get my own powers until bullies cornered me for not acting like the girl they thought I was and I had to defend myself. Having a secret identity is hard, but there's more than one kind of mask, and I can't wear my masks much longer. I'll soon find out if the world's ready for a genderqueer hero.
