DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review for Trinity #2 follow.
The book opens with Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman surprisingly with Clark Kent’s…
…no longer deceased father Jonathan Kent.
Baby Kent attacks the Trinity and departs.
Superman gets some quality time with his surprisingly alive dad.
At the same time, Batman and Wonder Woman after Baby Kent.
They find him and they reunite him with Superman and Pa Kent.
We now pivot to Superboy, Jon Kent, and its a bit jarring, but a hooded figure approaches him.
Turns it out, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are in the thrall of the White Mercy alien plant! So, the previous pages with Pa Kent’s return to living is a dream or vision induced by the White Mercy. And, Poison Ivy is involved as is, likely, Mongul.
Mongul, as we see on the cover of Trinity #5.
Mongul originally was part of the classic story from the 1980’s from Superman Annual #11…
…in the “For The Man Who Has Everything” with the Black Mercy alien plant. So, I have no idea how DC Rebirth’s White Mercy alien plant vs. the Black Mercy. This Trinity arc is expected to flesh that out.
Interestingly, the Black Mercy debuted on Season One of TV’s Supergirl in the “For The Girl Who Has Everything” episode.
Writer, artist and colorist Francis Manapul is doing amazing work in this new ongoing monthly Trinity series. The art and pacing is breathtaking. The story is compelling and brings you in. It also has nice nods to past classics and builds on them. 9 out of 10.
