Trinity – Better Together | Comics

A Trinity of world's most legendary superheroes is reformed only to stand opposing the power of White Mercy.

In their gloriously extensive superhero career, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman have taken on various enemies like Bane, Cheetah, Doomsday, The Joker and Lex Luthor individually but together they are capable of achieving triumph over greater evil.

The Final Days of Superman has left the world without a protector to look after and then it turns out there is another time-displaced Man of Steel around them who's been living among them with his family for some time. He is married to reporter Lois Lane, with whom he has a ten year old son and they all are denizens of Prime Earth now.

When Lois Lane invited them, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince arrive on Smith Farm, Hamilton County. They decide to keep this simple but a brash young Jon Kent blasts them away when he got startled by seeing Bruce's costume underneath his dress along with Diana's Bracelets of Submission and a dead wild boar using his x-ray vision.

Returning home right after his regular world saving roundups, Clark discovers them on his land at the same time. All of them go inside after settling up to have a nice family dinner together and The Trinity then reunites in a nearby field afterwards recalling their old times from both worlds while something mysterious lurks near the barn.

Clark recalls of that one time from his early days, when Bruce wore a rainbow suit to draw everyone's attention and keeping them from finding out Dick Grayson's identity as Robin. Bruce then shares his first-hand experience of meeting a young Superman of this world who nearly killed him and Green Lantern Hal Jordan upon meeting.

So, he couldn't help but being curious about this new Man of Steel from another world is and came to find out who he really is. Diana took a little bit of private time with Lois to talk and she assures that she isn't here to steal Clark from her or rekindle her old relationship with him at all because he is not the same man she once loved.

Suddenly, Clark hears a call from inside their barn and goes to check out a mysterious mirror where he sees a reflection of his young self from past and his father Jonathan Kent. Following Clark, Bruce and Diana took on a journey where Clark has just discovered his amazing abilities and is scared to see The Trinity on Kent Farm.

In Gotham, Batman has witnessed his parent's death once again from over a rooftop as Clark and Diana stands by. With Alfred Pennyworth and Dr. Harleen Quinzel being at his side at Wayne Manor, his kid self is currently in shock and struggling to deal with issues when horrors like Man-Bat and Scarecrow constantly tries terrorizing him.

Their quest eventually lead them all to Themyscira, where Diana met with her mother Queen Hippolyta and her younger self, followed by three of them. These heroes are being tested for their skills and merit in games of Amazons. Meanwhile, Lois storms into the barn with a car to discover villainous Poison Ivy grabs a hold of her son Jon.

A night that started with a family-reunion soon escalates into a major crisis of illusion constructed by one of their dreaded old nemesis and an alien tyrant named Mongul, who is back with his daughter White Mercy. Together, this ruthless father-daughter duo is about to put an end to The Trinity inside a world full of illusions.

As DC Rebirth impacts entire world of DC Comics, a reunion of The Trinity is overdue, with a brand-new ongoing series from comic-book writer/artist Francis Manapul (Justice League – No Justice, The Flash – Move Forward), who was aided by artists Clay Mann (Dark Reign – Elektra, Magneto – Not a Hero) and Emanuela Lupacchino.

The story arc "Better Together" is the first one that is set in Prime Earth continuity and collects issues #01-06 from second ongoing monthly volume of titular series. Whereas every other ongoing titles following DC Rebirth re-launch received a one-shot "Rebirth" issue to start with, Trinity took a slightly different path by not including one.

Trapped In Nightmares

This is also the first time when an alternate version of heroes, who is from pre-Flashpoint era, has joined their little band of three and that actually gives a dynamic sense of diversity to this iconic team. While discussing about stuffs of two different worlds, references of Green Lantern from Prime Earth and Robin of New Earth were mentioned.

A few unresolved issues like what happens to Mongul next will be further detailed in "Action Comics – The New World". The plotline will be followed up with their next adventure titled "Dead Space", where these heroes will fight an alien invasion and will seek help from a mystic trinity later to save a few more in "Dark Destiny" storyline.

Bane – New 52 | Comics

Born to a revolutionary father who was a prisoner of Peña Dura, a child who would become Bane one day took his father's place and lived in the imprisonment of a flooded chamber for 17 years. As he grew to hate the world, he got cunning and incredibly strong using the super-steroid known as Venom. He came to Gotham City in quest of power but is opposed by Batman, whom he did not see coming.

Bane – New 52 | Comics

He teamed up with Scarecrow and White Rabbit but the Court of Owls came into their way (Knight Terrors). Bane believed that both Batman and The Court are connected but following Night of the Owls, he is proved wrong. With the unexpected aid from Sebastian Clark, Bane set out to destroy The Court and then went up against a former Talon named Calvin Rose (Scourge of the Owls).

Even though Bane snapped Rose's neck in Santa Prisca, he came back and defeated Bane's army. Bane then killed Sebastian Clark and left to conquer Gotham City once again with the malevolent Alfred Pennyworth of Earth 3 (Fall of the Owls). The Crime Syndicate took over the world and "Arkham War" broke in for taking control over Gotham.

Wearing his very own Batsuit, Bane fought against Scarecrow's army of Arkhamites and enlists a Talon named William Cobb to help him rule Gotham. He is eventually defeated by Batman, who locked him up in Arkham and he escaped to team-up with Scarecrow but got along with Poison Ivy instead, who betrayed him. Killer Croc met him in the sewers to settle some old scores and during Joker's Endgame, he fought alongside the Bat-Family to save the city from falling into any further chaos.

One of the most dreaded foe that The Dark Knight has ever faced, Bane is most popular for his infamous act of "Breaking The Bat" in the Knightfall saga of DC Comics' New Earth continuity (also known as the "Post-Crisis" era). The idea of Bane's character was conceived by comic-book writer Chuck Dixon (Batgirl – Year One, Superman/Tarzan – Sons of the Jungle), Graham Nolan (Hawkworld, JLA Vs. Predator) and Doug Moench (Batman & Dracula – Red Rain, Batman Vs. Predator II – Bloodmatch).

Bane Takes Gotham

However, following the "Flashpoint" crossover event and in the wake of The New 52, Bane set foot on the new rebooted era through the second volume of the monthly ongoing Batman – The Dark Knight. Therefore the credit of his Prime Earth persona development goes to the writer/artist team of Paul Jenkins (Batman – Jekyll & Hyde, The Darkness/Pitt), Joe Harris and David Finch (Aphrodite IX, Brightest Day).

 | Comics
Killer Croc climbs to the 52nd floor of the Lex-Com tower and breaks in to steal a yellow crystal like rock. As Gotham P.D. tries to investigate into the matter, Lex Luthor’s men has managed to stave them off while looking for Luthor’s missing property and Batman secretly hears their conversation on the situation. It appears that Croc was actually working for a gruesome being named Schrocken to whom Croc has shown a great deal of obedience as well as fear. When he asks for permission to leave, Schrocken got annoyed by him and sent him running by giving him a beating. Batman was chasing Killer Croc, who's acting all mindless recently and filled only with blind-rage.

Meanwhile, Superman is having some nightmares and cannot concentrate on work either. He feels jealous about Lois going out for an interview with his friend Pete Ross and later tries to peek on them which are not very likely of him. His abnormal behavior is been orchestrated by DeSaad and he has enlisted The Scarecrow to tap into Superman's primal fear. The evil god Darkseid is behind all these schemes who wants Superman to steal the staff of Highfather from Source-Wall to restore his own power, which has diminished since he is released from the Source-Wall (in Superman/Batman – With a Vengeance). Batman secretly follows Superman, only to be unexpectedly aided by Orion's beautiful yet dangerous wife Bekka, with whom he soon develops a brief but serious romantic relationship that will cause all sorts of trouble.

DC Comics have hired writer Alan Burnett; the talent behind the DC Animation Universe (Superman Adventures, Batman Beyond), to pitch a plot for the Superman/Batman monthly ongoing comics series along with artist Dustin Nguyen (Batman – As the Crow Flies, Thanos – A God Up There Listening) in 2008.
