Mainly targeting younger readers, Super Powers #1! is a fun (if lightweight) all-ages comic featuring DC’s big three heroes. Opening in Gotham City where Batman has disappeared, Superman discovers clues leading him to discover Braniac is responsible. With the help of Wonder Woman who traces Braniac to New Krypton, the Big Blue Boy Scout finds and frees the Dark Knight Detective, leaving the heroes to deal with the villain. Personally, because it’s geared to a younger audience, I’m a little disappointed that Baltazar and Aureliani (who tag-team the writing and drawing of the comic) didn’t go for more classic Super Powers or Super Friends costumes of the heroes. Still, kids should enjoy this one. For fans.

[DC, $2.99]

Written and drawn by Francis Manapul, Trinity #1 focuses on the DCU’s big three: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The most low key of any number one issue following the Rebirth relaunch, the first issue of the new series involves Lois inviting Bruce and Diana to dinner at the farm in order to get to know them (and force Clark to do the same). After a brief misunderstanding with Supes, Jr., things calm down quickly and allow the group to spend some non-life-threatening time together.
