Thankfully, all wars end. Usually, we’re pleased and thankful to see them end, though that’s definitely not the case when the war in question is the thrilling crossover event that is “Trinity War.” For the past two months, we’ve followed the mystery, action and tragedy unfolding in the pages of Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark, eagerly awaiting each new installment.
Kid Flash is being pulled into a mysterious vortex, and his cries for help set off a chain reaction. Each Titan on the scene lends their strength to the last, but will it be enough? Wonder Girl, Bunker, Beast Boy, Solstice and then Superboy all become part of the tug of war – with Kid Flash stuck in the middle!
As the Teen Titans learn that even their combined powers have limits, is the team strong enough to pull themselves out of the vortex? Who – or what – is on the other side? And what happens when one of the Titans decides to leave to pursue a personal mission?
