Synopsis for "Teenage Wasteland - Part 3: What Did You Want to Be When the World Blew Up?"Edit
The kids take a well deserved breather after escaping the anti-superhuman group. They each tell stories about the end of the world and what could have been.
Percival Edmund Chang in "Buggin' Out"
Grunge talks about the cockroaches taking over the Earth. As they rule, Grunge continues his skateboarding and goes up against the roaches in contests to be the best and claim the last of the girls on Earth too. Sadly, the cockroaches skateboarding abilities prove vastly superior to Grunge's.
Roxanne Spaulding in "American Splendor"
Freefall talks about having a normal life even with her powers. She thinks about making good grades in school, joining the cheerleading squad, and even having a home to come to with someone to care for her. She mentions the town of Tranquility as being the place best suited for their kind.
Robert "Bobby" Lane in "Dead Air"
Burnout talks about actually keeping music alive in the post-apocalyptic world. He talks about having a mobile radio broadcast and sending out music to all the survivors.
Sarah Rainmaker in "Baby, the Rain Must Fall"
Rainmaker tells of a time when she'll depart from the other kids after meeting up with a female Indian ruler. She will see it as a chance for change and a time to grow into a new life that does not involve Gen13.
Caitlin Fairchild in "Girl, Un-Interrupted"
Fairchild talks about escaping to an isolated place where she could read her books and no one would bother her. Her story takes place in TR's monster reserve inhabited by a colony of Qeelockes, among other monsters and animals. While Caitlin's peacefully reading, a Tyrannosaurus Rex arrives and menaces her. She first scares the prehistoric beast by firing a machine gun but then ends up taking it for a walk after it pleads with her by holding its leash in its mouth.
When they're finished with their stories, the Gen13 kids come upon an abandoned shopping mall.

Once inside, he attaches two machetes to compensate for his missing leg and proceeds to arm himself with a flame thrower. Before he engages the monsters on the current level, he sets a bomb that will detonate in ten minutes and ensure that none of the monsters with escape the facility. Unfortunately, he now has a time limit to escape the facility as well.
