Election Day 2012 - Victor Sloane elected president in a fairly tight race, pushed ahead by a backlash against the large-government prior administration.

21 December 2012 - Emergence Day, E-Day - Powers manifest for the first time at 2:16 PM EST. Many manifestations are destructive, leveling entire city blocks (in some cases entire cities) and killing millions worldwide. Also, a number of hyper-advanced cities emerge from the oceans off the coasts of major nations.

22 January 2013 - President Sloane establishes ______ as an arm of the Department of Homeland Security specifically to monitor and police metahuman activity.

1 February 2013 - Settlement of the first of the Sunken Cities is permitted.

3 February 2013 - Reports are leaked of metahuman military units being used by foreign powers. A week later pieces of a document on "Project Odin" are leaked. Metahuman military applications are addressed, but as a benefit of something else that is not explicitly named.

13 February 2013 - Congress passes the Lee-Shuster Act, which attempts to crack down on the rampant vigilantism and criminal activity seemingly brought on by the emergence of metahumans through registration. Also called the First National Metahuman Registration Act, NaMRA I. The American public is divided on the Act, and fierce debate rages over the ramifications of the Act.

22 April 2013 - The Gibbons-Kane Act essentially extends metahuman registration to all citizens via national licensing in an attempt to catch metahumans who fell through the cracks of Lee-Shuster. Considered NaMRA II and much more controversial than its predecessor.

NOTE: The world is obviously not fully fleshed out. Any help, suggestions, comments, questions, quandaries, or issues are welcome.
