The Dream Country: Façade wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 06/29/13 05:40AM View full history

The Dream King relinquishes center stage to his sister Death for a standalone issue, as she visits a long-forgotten, cult-favorite DCU character called Element Girl. Check in with the former hero as she deals with the devastating reality of her tragic existence…

In a darkened room, a woman sits, smoking cigarettes and wishing she was normal. The woman is Urania Blackwell - better known to some as Element Girl, though she doesn't go by that name anymore. Now she's just 'Ranie'. Ranie is a depressed recluse, retired from the C.I.A. and living in an apartment somewhere on her government pension and talking once a week to someone in the benefits office as her sole form of human interaction. That is, until one day she receives a call from an old friend.

Dream does not appear in this issue.
