super-powers-2016-1-batman

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.

While the “Year One” storyline is just getting the threesome acquainted in the odd issues of the new Wonder Woman series, Wonder Woman #7 reunites Wonder Woman with Cheetah and Steve Trevor as Wonder Woman her former friend turned enemy work together to free the captives and defeat Urzkartaga. The issue works well to wrap-up this part of the story while still leaving plenty to be delved into in the next arc. Will Diana’s fragile truce with Cheetah hold? What does her reunion with Steve mean for the future of the pair? I am curious to see where the comic will go next. Worth a look.

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.

“The Lies” begins to unite both Wonder Woman and Cheetah‘s story with the subplot of Steve Trevor and his unit in the jungles of Bwunda. Wonder Woman and Cheetah’s trek through the jungle into the home of the bloodthirsty god Urzkartaga leads them to discover the captured soldiers… although the jungle deity’s plans for Trevor mean we’ll have to wait at least until one more issue before his reunion with Diana.

lego-justice-league-gotham-city-breakoutAnother lukewarm entry to the LEGO DC Super Heroes line, Justice League: Gotham City Breakout features two separate stories. First, Nightwing (Will Friedle) and Batgirl (Sarah Hyland) convince Batman (Troy Baker) to finally take a vacation leaving Gotham City in the hands of Superman (Nolan North). The trip to visit his old teacher Madame Mantis (Amy Hill) unveils a plot by Deathstroke (John DiMaggio) and Bane (Eric Bauza) to use a normally peaceful underground tribe to take over the world. While providing its moments, the adventure begins to drag during its second-half.

The other storyline features Superman having more trouble with the super-villains of Gotham City than he expected. Tricked by the Joker (Jason Spisak), Superman accidentally causes a break-out at Arkham Asylum. Even calling on the help of Cyborg (Khary Payton) and Wonder Woman (Grey Griffin), the heroes struggle to stop the chaos eventually allowing Robin (Scott Menville) to show them what crime-fighting in Gotham is all about.

wonder-woman-2016-2-horse

The structure of this comic is going to drive me nuts. Rather than continuing the story begun in Wonder Woman #1, the second issue of the series (and all successive even-numbered issues for the foreseeable future) will focus on a retelling of the origins on Wonder Woman before she left Themyscira.
