The Trinity

The year-long absence of the three most prominent superheroes of the DC Comics universe - Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman - and their return to active duty was a significant part of both the "One Year Later" series and "52" series.

  • Clark Kent, after having no powers for a year, uses his skills as a journalist to try to protect Metropolis from organized crime and Lex Luthor. Gradually, during the Up, Up and Away! story arc, he regains his powers as Superman in enough time to stop Luthor, the Toy Man, and the Kryptonite Man.
  • Batman returns to Gotham City after a year long hiatus traveling the world with Robin and Nightwing. He deals with what has happened to Gotham in his time away in the Face the Face storyline.
  • Wonder Woman, who also spent time traveling during the Lost Year, has taken up the secret identity of Diana Prince again at Batman's urging, and has taken a job as an agent for the Department of Metahuman Affairs working with Sarge Steel and Nemesis. Donna Troy, who has assumed the Wonder Woman mantle, is taken hostage by a group of Diana's old villains demanding the real Wonder Woman, and Sarge Steel assigns Diana and Nemesis to rescue her during the Who is Wonder Woman? arc.
