Jim Lee Talks DC’s Trinity War And Superman With Scott Snyder
DC is beginning their second year with the New 52 relaunch, and things are going pretty well. A new wave of comics has already started with this weeks Talon by James Tynion IV. In a chat with CBR at the recently wrapped NYCC, DC co-publisher Jim Lee and Dan DiDio talked about the upcoming wave of new books and how this wave will be about fresh new ideas and characters as well as the inclusion of Lee’s Wildstorm imprint. In some of the more interesting soundbites, Lee talked about DC’s first big event kicking off next summer, Trinity War, as well as his upcoming collaboration with Scott Snyder.
We’ve known that DC has a big event planned for next summer, they teased it in their free comic book day issue. While details are nonexistent as of now, Lee did say a little bit about the event. Trinity doesn’t refer to the characters involved as many thought it would, it refers to the story:
Without giving it away, “Trinity War’ — the word trinity resonates throughout the project on many, many levels and so in a sense there’s almost three distinct parts. Well, almost three stories combined into one and then each part really redefines the universe in a really cool and unexpected way. There’s a lot of really cool past stuff that’s going to be revealed and a lot of new elements that are going to be added to the DC Universe. Again, paying off that initial premise of the New 52 which is we are going to continue to surprise you by allowing people to come in and join in and feel like they’re getting in on the ground floor, and Trinity War is a continuation of that theme.
On his recently announced Superman book with Batman writer Scott Snyder, Lee was very complimentary on the scribe and said he had been following his “short, but super hot career.” Lee did a variant for America Vampire, so the two are no strangers to each other. Lee said that he was happy to be talking about it and let the secret out “although it was a poorly kept secret.” He stated that the plan the whole time was for him to leave Justice League with issue #12 and launch the new Superman book in anticipation of the big blue boyscouts 75th Anniversary.
If you want to read Lee’s comments about wave 2 and holding the WildCATS back for now, as well as some comments by Didio, you can click here. With some events unfolding since the zero issues, there are some hints at how the Trinity War will shape up. You have Pandora, The Question, and the Phantom Stranger playing bigger parts in the DC world, but are they the trinity Lee speaks of? We have a while to wait before we find out. What do you think?
