First Look: JUSTICE LEAGUE #22

This is it. Trinity War has finally arrived.

Ever since last year's DC - THE NEW 52 Free Comic Book Day issue, we've been waiting to find out more about Trinity War. As we've seen more about Pandora, Phantom Stranger and the Trinity of Sin, plus the recent developments in JUSTICE LEAGUE and JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, things have been heating up.

The first official chapter is almost upon us. It all begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE #22 by Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #22

TRINITY WAR, the action-mystery event of the summer, begins with a full-length epic adventure! The death of a hero ignites a violent war among the Justice Leagues! It’s League vs. League vs. League as an impending darkness approaches the DC Universe. But the truth behind it all will lead to an evil that threatens every hero on the planet. And what does the Secret Society of Super-Villains have to with this? Everything.

Check out Doctor Light on the bottom of the first page. DC mentions he'll be more involved with the Justice League of America and we'll have to wait and see what his role becomes if each member of the JLA is supposed to have been chosen to take out a member of the Justice League.

Damn you DC and your recycled ideas!
Let's hope it won't last for the whole event.
Also Ivan Reis is getting better by the issue

Woohoo!!

Who's that dude on the bottom of page 7?

I just started reading comics a year ago so i dont know that much..

Posted by longbowhunter

Cautiously optimistic.

Edited by Trodorne

I don't know about Superman being possesed but the skull could be bringing out the darkest parts of a person. which Pandora needs to find someone of a pure heart. Superman is just like anyone else....mentally. which is why the skull will more than likely go to Billy Batson.

Edited by deathmedal

My guess is this is where Billy comes in, there is only a few that can take Superman down, WonderWoman may to too close to Clark now. SHAZAM for the win.

I freaking called it I knew Supes would be the one to start it HIGH FIVE

Hopefully Doctor Rape dies later on.

Doctor light I believe will be the justice league of America's answer for firestorm on JL. Makes sense to me.

One of Firestorms main powers, besides the storms of fire, is transmuting one material into the other. maybe the JLA will take advantage of light not being a material? it's a long shot, but so are some of their other match-ups.

@flashdamn: I made a thread and my guess was he would be the one to pull the trigger.

It almost happen to majestic in Team 7 the box was attracting, him so I suppose it find Kal El instead to bad for the worl a Superman who doesn't hold back and angry SCARY....................

He is vulnerable to magic so I can see why he was so easily possessed or something.

Yeah...I think you might be right and Diana would be too close to Clark too...the innocence of a kid....so SHAZAM!

But what if he get's "sue'd" (Get it?)

Posted by saoakden

This could be interesting. I want to read it more now!

Edited by Mr. Messy Face

One of Superman's weaknesses is magic? Well who knew? lol :P

everyone seems excited about this event which will be done within the 3 Justice League books from what i understand ...planned well and not destroying your wallet by making you buy extra limited series or tie ins you don't want. Marvel could learn from this. age of ultron should have been within the avengers titles without the extra series. It feels like nothing important in marvel happens without an event or new number 1 issue ....i wonder how long avengers A.i. will last i wonder who will care about that book after the event excitement wares off. well when i read that Odin gave the world to Morgan Le Fey and technology lost i started to get the feeling that the rest of the series would be crap......i cant wait for the trinity war ...after the event fatigue at marvel got to the point that i can barley remember non event related books...make mine DC

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

considering I don't care about 2/3 of the trinity, I am not that excited about this as I once was, however you got to love Reis's work!

Yeah, that won't work. New 52 Batson definitely isn't pure of heart in any way...

Edited by TDK_1997

It looks so,so,so......much like I imagined it would be.

Posted by Omega-Man

Wait I don't get this. How can Superman be mind controlled (Again) when Orion of the new gods placed up mentel barriers that stops people from controlling him? yeah bit inconsistent DC. You can't be consistant with your own writing. I hope this is explained how he is being controlled by that thing when he now has barriers to stop that.

Posted by Grand_Supremor

Not Supes vs WW. They were so good together, now he might hurt her...

shit just got real

Actually when you look at a child, he might seem angry and sometimes cruel, but with Shazam! he is a kid at heart. and almost all kids are often filled with hope for better things, for things to be better. though their acts may seem cruel and strange. in the end Billy gets an adult body but still with the hopes of a child. Hope and love are the only things a child really wants. besides toys of course, and PB&J sandwiches with the crusts cut off.

Superman is a man, who tries so hard to act good. He knows he has this super power and he knows he could easily take over. growing up with his abilities he has always forced himself to be an example to others. But in the end he holds himself back when people ridicule him constantly, calling him a menace, a danger to all human life. Imagine not being able to go into a foreign country and not being able to kill a dictator who is mass murdering his own people because you don't want to start an international problems between your home and every other country.

Looks like Supes is someone else's bizatch again by how these panels are looking! That said, I'm excited for this upcoming event! Can't wait!

Superman, go take your anger out on a distant planet.

Catwoman getting shot reminds me of blue beetle's fate in Infinite Crisis.

AWESOME

Posted by fACEmelter88

Since you-know-who got shot why is she on these covers?

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Superman is so easy to brainwash. He's like the lead female from ye old 30's serials.

Posted by NightFang

Things are gonna get crazy!

@fartvader: it's not a guy it's Pandora from Pandora's box,she along with Phantom Stranger (Judas) and The Question (?) are part of the Trinity of Sin
