Comments

This was a weekly year-long event, similar to “52” and “Countdown”  but unlike the latter, it was an entirely self-contained story. Unlike either of its predecessors, however, it focused on the major super-heroes of the DC Universe, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, instead of the lesser developed characters.

Each issue of Trinity had two stories; the main one, focusing on the Trinity themselves, and the backup, focusing on other characters involved in the overall storyline.

Synopsis

Morgaine le Fey cast a spell invoking the symbols Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman have been marked with transferring their power of the Trinity to herself, Enigma, and Despero. The spell also transports Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman out of the New Earth reality. Using their new status as the Trinity the three villains use their power to break open the egg Krona was trapped in allowing them to reshape the New Earth reality.
