According to the solicit for 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.

So who do you think dies? Obviously everyone in the cover can be ruled out so I'm not really sure who could fit that spot. The solicits also say that:

  • A hero gets arrested (I guess that could be anyone, since this is a war and all)
  • A hero goes rogue
  • A hero leaves the regular Justice League for Justice League Dark

Although I have to say I'm not very happy with these news. I'm tired of comic book deaths just like everyone else

Who's absent from the battle? (Besides Captain Marvel. IDK if he'll be a member of the JL by then but if he is, he could move to the more magic-oriented JLD)

Cyborg; remember how Johns kept saying "his time has come"? They even made a video about it.

Kill off Cyborg, DC. Without their bus, the League will be shattered irrevocably.

booster gold

he hasn't been seen since the JLI annual

and shazam is apparently rogue

and i can't believe it is only six issues long it should go for 3 or 4 months

also i am going to read JLD just for the trinity war

lastly i hope they properly introduce the atom before the trinity war starts

Black Orchid isn't in the picture, but I don't know if she's important enough to start a war over. Depends on the circumstances I suppose.

Who could possibly leave the Justice League for Justice League Dark? I really hope they're not talking about Shazam, if he is a Justice League member.

I don't think it's Pandora since by the time the event starts only 2 issues of her own series will be out

#15 Edited by Akindoodle (852 posts) - - Show Bio

It may be Flash leaving the regular JL for the Darkies because he shows up in their title quite a bit leading up to the event. It would be cool but I can't really imagine it though, he's a sci-fi hero, they're magic. How will it mesh? Though it may be better for him. He's not doing much in the JL

I hope no one I like dies. Can't be Pandora; she just got her own monthly. No one from the main JL because they're too important to kill off. It's the JLA cover with the coffin... Amanda Waller? She's no "hero" in the conventional sense, but all 3 teams know her, she has a really integral role in the DC universe right now and her death would be enough to boil some blood

Hehe, I just noticed John Constantine (pathological liar) tangling with the Lasso of Truth. Interesting combination...

#16 Posted by akbogert (3150 posts) - - Show Bio

Pandora isn't a hero, not really sure why people would suspect her.

Anyhow, I'm also thinking it's the JLA coffin as well. Waller's no hero but I would be happy to see her go, primarily because I loathe the whole blackmailing people into service angle of which she's an intrinsic part with SS and JLA. But that's not a reason to actually expect her to be the "hero" who dies.

Killing WONDER WOMAN?! Bite your tongue sir! Or ma'am. Haha, really though, she's the closest thing to godship on the team but why are we assuming that the Phantom Stranger being Judas has anything to do with the death.

She shouldn't die..... but it's 2013, Barry Allen's the Flash again, Bucky Barnes is alive while another Robin is dead. The last decade in comics show that anything's possible. Who's Amanda Waller to say no to comic book death?

#19 Posted by akbogert (3150 posts) - - Show Bio

@akindoodle: Well obviously a lot of people like it or she wouldn't be in multiple books. But there's nothing redeemable about blackmail -- a person whose name is basically synonymous with it is a terrible role model for anyone. Threatening to kill or ruin someone's life (or simply withhold good you could easily give) unless they do precisely what you want, for as long as you want, is just straight-up evil. I see Waller as a villain, and likewise anyone complicit with what she does. I don't care what your justifications are -- you strap a bomb to someone and threaten to detonate it if they displease you, you no longer deserve to be seen as a good person.

And as such, I don't view her as a hero... so I don't view her death as the inciting incident.

@akbogert: You just described every intelligence organisation in the world and guess what? People consider these guys heroes for keeping their countries "safe" (not me personally, hence the sarcasm. They can go suck it). And the role model bit was meant as a joke so relax. I don't consider Waller a hero myself. She's a b*tch to put it nicely. I was simply hypothesizing that she's now important enough to start a war. Besides, DC has some pretty weird definitions for the word "hero". There, happy?

hmmm. A large part of me thinks that one of the new 3 rookies on the JL team will be the death (firestorm isn't in the picture). Zatanna is joining the league coming up and her switching back to dark could be what they're referring to. I also can't help but think Green Arrow will be the traitor on JLA. Also isn't JLA having a death coming up? Couldn't that be the catalyst that sparks the war? I notice no Catwoman in the fight.

#29 Edited by colonyofcells (2038 posts) - - Show Bio

Amanda Waller is probably more dispensable. Other unpopular heroes that can be killed are Firestorm, Black Orchid, Amethyst, Booster Gold, etc. I would also like to speculate that there is a Justice League member most likely to rape people : Dr Arthur Light. I hope Dr Arthur Light does not rape Pandora bec. Pandora might get very angry and bring back the pre-flashpoint universe.

Au contraire --- the backup to JLA #2 strongly implied, if not flat out stated, that the only reason Waller formed the new League was because J'onn surreptitiously planted the idea in her mind and let her believe it was hers to begin with.

It's nice to be agreed with. And we have the exact same feelings on the subject. I really do like manipulating, political morally ambiguous and/or bankrupt characters. But the dude loved Oreos for God's sake! Evil people don't love something as wholesome as Oreos; goes against every law in the universe. Even his appearance in the Sandman of all things wasn't this dark and this is the Sandman. Actually, does he still like oreos? or have they retconned that too?

No it shouldn't. I'm tired of needlessly long crossovers. We're lucky enough as it is that it's being contained to three books instead of spawning off a mini-series and 56 tie-in issues.

Well that's disappointing. What was the point of even getting Baz as a counter to the JL's Green Lantern if he was going to leave before the Trinity War anyway?
