The Justice Leagues Clash In DC's 'Trinity War' Event


According to USA Today, DC's title-spanning event "Trinity War" will finally kick off in "Justice League" #22 by Geoff Johns and artists Ivan Reis and Joe Prado, then expand into the other "JL" titles by bleeding into "Justice League of America," which is co-written by Johns and Jeff Lemire (stepping into the big leagues) with art by Doug Mahnke, and "Justice League Dark" written by Lemire with art by Mikel Janin.

Pandora, the enigmatic magical lady who seemingly started the entire New 52 universe by opening that oh so famous box, will play a pivotal role in "Trinity War," as she is part of the "Trinity of Sin," along with other mysterious, damned types Phantom Stranger and the Question. About Pandora, Johns told USA Today:

She's an enigma, completely...In a lot of ways, she's been a pawn for most of her existence. She was tricked into using the box and she's being tricked into doing something now, in a way. The Justice League, that becomes another part of it.

Based on the heavy involvement of DC's supernatural wing, "Trinity War" seems like it will veer more into the metaphysical realm than previous events, and will create even more chaos in the already, excessively chaotic DC Universe. Johns said:

It's not going to end wrapped up in a bow...Something really, really major happens that kicks off some pretty crazy stuff at the end of August.

Old 52?

"Trinity War" runs six issues and begins in "Justice League" #22 in July.
