In the DuckTales reboot, Atlantis is a sunken city that fell into the sea because the Atlantians building it were too focused on building death traps to contruct a proper foundation. As a result of this, the entire city is upside down, rendering most of the aforementioned death traps useless, as seen in the pilot epsiode. Atlantis's sinking also makes it only accessable when there is snow off of the Drake Barrier Reef, causing a change in currents. Such a weather phenomenon occurs for the first time in fifty years when Ducktales kicks off, and both Scrooge McDuck, and Flintheart Glomgold go with their respective groups to find the city. Atlantis was also home to the Jewel of Atlantis, that served as a power source for the underwater city and its death traps, until Scrooge and his family took it. Afterwards, Flintheart Glomgold destroyed Atlantis, in a futile attempt on Scrooge's life.
