Batman is gonna kick some serious Superman/WW arse!

Trinity War????

Is Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman supposed to duke it out?

If so AWESOME, we get to see the trinity for what they are under the New 52 a true test of what all of them are made of.

This may be as BADASS as the new Cyclops.
capMO - 11/19/2012, 3:46 PM
is it just me or is that some seriously bad english going on on page 4? Batman's response to WW's "I have to help him" is "The best thing to do that is to find the cheetah.". Either it's a mistake or somebody needs to go back to school

Not a big fan of DC, but this looks great, i'm gonna pick it up.

bazinga85 - Trinity war isnt about Batman, Superman, ww fighting each other. Its about the Question, Pandora and the Phantom Stranger
theInvincibleMexiMan - 11/19/2012, 3:51 PM
I thought the Trinity War had to do with Judas, Pandora, and that other guy?

I'd be down with a Batman, Supes, and WW showdown though

nevermind. @Tevii answered my question. You go Tevii! :P
bazinga85 - 11/19/2012, 4:02 PM
@tevii
I know. I was just expressing who I believe would win in that situation, lol:)

This series has been pretty solid so far, can't wait to see what they do with the question, he's one of my fav characters.

How does this look great? It's freakin' Cheetah owning the Justice League... by herself.
coolguy - 11/19/2012, 4:22 PM
love geoff johns and justice league but this title hasnt been great for me. i think with ivan reis it will improve, since they seem to work well togethor. i just cant get pumped for trinity war if it will have a whole lot to do with these uninteresting issues.
marvel72 - 11/19/2012, 4:26 PM
trinity war & age of ultron two stories that have the potential of being awesome.

This JL new 52 is really coming together well. I really enjoy the comics. Looking forward to adding this one to my collection!!!

I stopped reading JL after the first arc, hated it! Picked up issue #13 on a whim and really liked it. Can't wait to grab #14 in Wednesday.
Tevii - 11/19/2012, 8:07 PM
Bazinga85 - I love question too. Such a cool character. Could be such an awesome TV series if WB pulled their heads out of their asses.

BackwardGalaxy - thats why its cool. They upgraded Cheetah to be cool and dangerous. They didnt take away from JL. They just gave WW a worthy opponent that could challenge the whole team.

I'm interested in this, I'd love to see Wonder Woman/Batman/Superman battle it out. Liking Tony Daniel's artwork, it's similar to Jim Lee's, which is great.
LEOSTRATOR - 11/19/2012, 9:22 PM
Cyborg worst comic character ever, even worst than the falcon. SMH.
supernaturalfreak - 11/19/2012, 10:18 PM
Geoff Johns is the worst thing to happen to comics
MutantEquality - 11/19/2012, 10:35 PM


Just figured out how to post pics from my iPhone.....and I hope the Arc ROCKS!
Tevii - 11/20/2012, 12:00 AM
@supernaturalfreak - everyone is entitled to their opinion... but Johns brought back Hal Jordan. Something I waited for for 10 years. and he did it in an amazing way. With great follow ups like Blackest Night and Flashpoint.
He single handedly got me back into comics when i gave up on them. And many people can say that.
So i completely disagree with you and the profit margins would argue with you as well.
Aiiwolf - 11/20/2012, 4:08 AM
Meh. I dont care much for Trinity War. Especially with Cheetah owning the JL by herself, that's a bit weak of a plot.

And, if the writers are going to over-power Batman than he already is, than that gives me no interests to support this. Everything in DC Comics feels out of hand, almost like the world is unbalanced.

If anyone should kick Superman's ass, it shouldn't be ONE MAN, it should be the entire team.
Aiiwolf - 11/20/2012, 4:28 AM
@ Tevii

Geoff Johns created FlashPoint. Flashpoint story destroyed DC comics. Alot of things contradict each other. He may have been AWESOME before FlashPoint...but DC Will never be the same due to the NEW TARGET MARKETING.

Their plan is exactly what Nintendo did..."PUSH YOUR LOYAL HARDCORE GAMERS AWAY FOR KIDS" to make more money...lets not forget they have also DUMBED DOWN THE WRITING FOR KIDS. Hence, look at the JL comics. Look at how superman talks. They all sound like a bunch of morons. Superman:"What can you do?" LOL....wtf is that? "Batman: we must find the cheetah" blah blah blah...

Like Nintendo who now want their hardcore gamers back with releasing the "Wii U" console ... DC will do something similar to try to gain the same loyalty.

Until than seems like Marvel is doing something right... heres my two middle fingers for nintendo. And here's my two middle fingers for DC. [frick] em both!

@airwolf - it was Dan Didio's idea to reboot the dcu. johns did what his boss told him too. I personally loved flashpoint. As to the ramifications of it, the new 52 has proven to be a success.
Do I miss the original dcu. Yes. Am I flexible in order to keep comic books alive a little longer? yes.
"You can embrace change or be destroyed be it" so love it or hate it new 52 probably saved comics for at least for another 10 years. When comics start to suffer they can make an equally cool event to switch the dcu back. It keeps things interesting.
As for the weak dialogue, I'm not sure why he's approaching the JL like that but I do agree with you there.

@aiiwolf
There are quite a few dark, adult and complex storylines in the current DCU that are very, very good. I'm pretty sure DC aren't trying to shit all over the so-called "real comic book fans" by dumbing them down.
xstryker - 11/21/2012, 12:03 PM
Anyone whining about dumbed down plots should read Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Batwoman, or Wonder Woman.
