Ziccarra Liafador vanished in a conflict with the Red Lanterns; putting their faith in the Young Maya Lopez; the Trinity; reformed as the Trinity Foundation. Maya had three separate cities constructed to represent the evolution of the Trinity; Realgam, Solace City and New Jerusalem. Maya's role as Prime Minister came under scrutiny from the U.N and the U.S; they claimed her age was going to be detrimental to the welfare of the middle east. The newly ordained Black Cardinal sent a doppelganger into New Jerusalem to attack Jean "Gambler" Lebeau; the doppelganger got the better of the cajun however leaving him alive.
Gambler was placed under the custody of Maya Lopez; who gave him up to the U.N; as a precaution, the U.N had Gambler admitted to the Vine City: The Ruin Kingdom. The highly televised imprisonment of Gambler; called for assassins all over the country to attempt to break him out, little did they know the prison was a trap set by the Black Cardinal to capture Cassidy Lockhart-Starks and frame Maya Lopez. Despite the international affair, Trinity member Surkit was sent into the Ruin Kingdom to scout what was going on.
Maya proposed registration for a Utopian Super Human Registration Act; to keep tabs on heroes around the empire. The rest of the world took to this event seeing it as an injustice to the people of Utopia; Despite proposing the act; Maya 's hand was forced yet again by the U.N.
A battle between the doppelganger and Feral Nova virtually ended with a mushroom cloud explosion; Cassidy had been captured; and transported to a mansion located within the Utopian borders. This would set the Gears of War in motion. At the start of the event Maya placed a price on the Cajun's head, a sentiment Gambler returned.
The OSC and The Wolf Pack invaded Utopia to rescue Cassidy, under the impression that Maya Lopez and the Trinity Foundation knew her location. Maya had no prior knowledge of Cassidy's whereabouts but saw the OSC and Wolf Pack as a threat, defined in the Utopian Address she had given just two week prior. Kurrent snuck into Utopia in an attempt to speak with Maya; he was ultimately captured and tortured by Maya.
Maya felt that both the U.S and New France falsely attacked Utopia; The Trinity Foundation engaged members of the OSC in Turkey; the destruction of the manor brought forth the wrath of Final Arrow; who attacked not only Surkit and Editman but Gambler and Cass.
Arrow's appearance was a surprise for the TF and ultimately The Black Cardinal; the two super beings forged a pact and agreed to launch an All Out Assault. The Black Cardinal used her status as Ninjan Queen and launched a "Long awaited" Ninjan assault on Earth. Final Arrow used a group of personally engineered soldiers to attack Asia and the Pacific; while the Ninjans waged war in the West. Using a manipulated Kurrent to do her bidding; Ziccarra herself briefly engaged Mr. Mercury and the murderous Azra.
Following the conflict Maya resigned as the Prime Minister of Utopia, and went on the run to avoid War Crimes.
The Age of Empires and government ruled showed Maya; that the events following Know Evil and Adveho Procul Mihi Frater: LoS vs JLI were leading the world into a period of false hope. The heroes had diminished, Greedy politicians and power hungry individuals claimed territories both negligently and without a reason. Tired of this Imperialism, the heroes have returned to restore order to this Age of Empires.
The lone daughter of legendary hero Andferne; Former Prime Minister of Utopia, Maya Lopez returns to lead the Trinity.
