DC Unveils the Details Behind Trinity War

The comic world may be abuzz about all the recent Marvel crossover events like Age of Ultron and Infinity, but Marvel isn’t the only publisher bringing together their talent. DC has revealed the details behind Trinity War, their own upcoming crossover event, and it sounds appropriately massive. Here are details pulled from an interview with Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire, the two writers driving the event:

– Trinity War pits the three Justice Leagues against each other, and will run as six parts, two each from their respective titles (Justice League, Justice League of America, and Justice League Dark).

– The death of a hero will be the catalyst for the event, but that hero hasn’t been revealed yet.

– Along with all those Justice Leagues, this event also focuses on the characters that make up the Trinity of Sin, particularly Pandora, who appeared in the first issue of every New 52 title. The other two characters are The Question and the Phantom Stranger, and all three will play a major role in this conflict (as was teased in last year’s New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special).

– As with any crossover, the story will be filled with battles on an epic scale. However, the smaller details that have been built up in each Justice League title will also play a part, including the romantic relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman, the tension between Constantine and Zatanna, and the mysterious person working against the Justice League from the inside that Cyborg detected.

– Perhaps most importantly, Geoff Johns made it clear that this isn’t an event that would end cleanly. According to him, when Trinity War ends “something really, really major happens that kicks off some pretty crazy stuff at the end of August.”

I don’t know if I’m more excited about Trinity War or whatever happens after it, but either way I’m looking forward to finally finding out the significance of Pandora and her role in the New 52 as a whole. Looking forward to Trinity War, or are you burned out from all these crossovers? Let us know below!
