The Underworld is a desolate and dangerous domain ruled by Trigon and populated with demons. The domain is littered with trigger mechanisms in the form of red stones. When pressed, a flaming geyser is generated. In the present, a portal to the Underworld was set up at the Portal Coffee Shop in Metropolis. Etrigan, who was in hiding, was discovered by accident when June Moone threw him a suprise birthday party and sent out invitations across the universe. Demons captured Etrigan and took him back to the Underworld through the Portal's portal. He was imprisoned and stood to pay for his crimes against the Underworld, namely abandoning his post. Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Miss Martian, Katana, Beast Boy, and Bumblebee went to the Underworld to save Etrigan. They overheard demons speaking with Trigon but had no idea where to find Etrigan. Raven, Trigon's daughter, offered to help them and led them to the right path. Bumblebee performed reconnaissance and found Etrigan in a burning cage. Trigon teleported into the room and was not pleased to see surface-dwellers.

Wonder Woman demanded Etrigan's release but Trigon stated the Underworld was not in her jurisdiction. He imprisoned everyone, or so he thought, then left to attend a feast. Etrigan told everyone about his origins. They began to brainstorm how to escape but Miss Martian revealed herself, having been scared invisible during the encounter with Trigon. Bumblebee directed her to a panel of stones and she freed everyone. They were discovered by demons and made a run for the portal. A demon triggered the stone that closed the portal. Katana elected to go last and held off the demons. She and Wonder Woman barely got through the portal as it sealed shut. Etrigan thanked Wonder Woman but she was eager to get him back to Super Hero High School for his safety. Some time later, Trigon had another home school session with Raven. He gave her a new magic spell to practice, Azarath Metrion Zinthos. Raven struggled to create a portal and asked why she couldn't learn something else like reading, geography, and Quantum Physics.

Trigon emphasized Underworldians did magic and she must follow in his footsteps. Raven declared she hated magic but Trigon was oblivious. She was unaware the spell was to open a portal to Metropolis and her attempts were causing lava eruptions in the city. Trigon demonstrated the spell and created a portal then left for his chambers. Raven had enough and decided to go to Metropolis instead of practicing and jumped through his portal. Trigon found Raven's note and got angry. Principal Waller was surprised to see Raven and wondered if she finally got her recruitment letter despite the Underworld Postal Service being a nightmare.
