Changed my mind. I'm calling this a stalemate.

Tony probably won't be be able to do anything because Joker will have too many civilians at gun point (figuratively and literally).

Joker probably won't be able to use his poisons because Tony will inoculate himself to all the standard Joker toxins. So even if he coerces Tony out of the armor, it won't mean much.

@penguindust: Very good point. You've got me reconsidering swapping out Hulk for Wolverine on my list.

@penguindust: I like your list and your reasoning. I'd personally swap out Wolverine for Hulk, but nice list. :)

I've always seen the trinity as being more about real-world popularity/impact, and not so much about in-universe importance.

Let's face it, Batman and Wonder Woman, even though they are in the DC "trinity," are actually not as important to the DC universe as quite a few other heroes are (again, I'm speaking in-universe here). Shoot, historically, Bats and WW haven't even been written as the greatest of leaders, even though they are constantly put on a pedestal by DC's head shed. There are other far more important heroes than those two, and more inspiring leaders (in-universe); characters who are much more integral to the DC earth (and/or universe) and its ability to survive/thrive. Heroes like Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter would fit on that list, and maybe a few others.

That said... Spider-Man, Hulk, and Captain America have always been the closest thing to rivaling DC's trinity, in my books. Apart from the Fantasic Four (which I don't count because they are already a team), Spidey, Cap, and Hulk were pretty much the big Marvel heroes to start it all, having the greatest popularity and the most real-world impact on the comic book medium and culture. Wolverine would be the runner up for entry.

Iron Man might be in the running now as well, because his popularity has risen greatly over the last 7 years or so (thanks to RDJ and the cinematic universe). Before that, though, nobody would have even considered him as being in the running for a Marvel trinity, and rightly so. His impact on the comic book medium and society in general weren't really anything to talk about before then.

@sovereign91001: Yeah, I must have been thinking of Grayson while he was standing in for Batman for that short period after KnightsEnd. Still, I did not remember that. Thanks. :)

I'm still seeing the outline of trunks in the Robin cover, they just appear to be the same color as his tights.

Certainly looks as though he's not wearing any in the Detective cover.
