Weird Moments in Comics: That Time The Trinity Got Married

bystander3:

Does anyone remember the time that Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman got married?

Like three-way, menage troi married?

Like that was a real thing that happened to the real Diana, Bruce & Clark?

I feel like that was weird. I feel like we don’t talk about this enough.

Trinity is a weird series. Ostensibly it’s about how Wondy, Bats and Supes are important to the world, but it ran weekly and it has, like, 8 billion characters in it.

So anyway… Halfway through, our heroes get sucked into a magic egg and end up the gods of a baby universe in another dimension. Like ya’ do…

But, because they have the emotional maturity of teenagers, they get in a fight and start a war with their god powers.

(Yes, that’s really Bruce. Yes, he’s a giant furry bat monster. Stick with me here.)

The fight is so intense that by they end they’ve burnt most of each other’s clothes off and their powers are threatening to crack the planet in two.

So, they look around at the giant crater of lava they accidentally made. They’re standing there, sweaty, half naked, feeling a little foolish and ashamed of themselves.

image

And then they decide they need to make up and be friends again, so….

image

So the way they decide to do this, is they call together the high priests of their three religions, and they stand publicly before the people …and they get God-Married.

image

They “pledged themselves to one another”?

They were “bound together in a great ceremony as the Three Who Had Been Three became the Three Who Were One” ?!?!

That sure sounds like a wedding to me.

(It was a beautiful ceremony. Diana wore a white dress. Bruce …was still a giant, naked, furry bat monster.)

So what is the first thing our three newlyweds do after their wedding?

image

They build a house so that they can all move in together.

I’m not kidding. They Build a House. With Their Bare Hands. And Move In Together.

So how do our trio feel about their new living arrangements? In their new dream home? I’ll let them tell you, in their own words:

image

SUPERMAN (Bites lip. Closes eyes.): “It was GOOD.”

WONDER WOMAN (Closes eyes. Shudders.): “Hell Yeah, It was.”

BATMAN: “I Concur …You are both Fantastic Lovers.”

Did this not strike anyone as odd at the time? That this was a real thing that happened in canon?

A good Superman story fills you with awe. It’s the mythology of a sun god who wished he was a man because he saw something so great in us. It’s the story of a hero who could move whole worlds and see through stars and hear a whisper on the other side of the planet… who fell in love with a storyteller. [x]

superman’s instagram is full of inspiring quotes, pictures of the sunrise, out of focus shots taken with fans (tagged carefully with each persons name), drawings that small children have sent to him with thank you tags attached and artistic shots of apple pies purchased at small town diners

One of the best Superman moments never appeared in a Superman comic. A 2008 issue of Nightwing included a scene of Superman and Nightwing talking in a dark, after hours Central Park. A security guard, flashlight in hand, tells them to scatter before he realises whom he’s addressing. ‘Oh, hey, jeez, Superman, Nightwing, my bad,’ he stammers, mortified by his own mistake. ‘The park can’t get any safer having you guy guys patrolling it, can it?’

Superman doesn’t miss a beat. ‘You mean having the three of us patrolling it,’ he answers. That’s it. That’s Superman. And he doesn’t deliver the line with a sarcastic eye roll or a sly ‘can-you-believe-this-guy?’ wink in Nightwing’s direction. Superman is just stating the facts. When he looks at this man, he doesn’t see an interloper or a pretender. He sees a peer.

That’s life in Superman’s world. Here the most powerful being on the planet is glad to call you a friend as long as you work hard and help others. The ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound has nothing to do with it. Born on Krypton but raised in Kansas, Superman is a small-town boy who never developed a shell of big-city cynicism.

Critics sometimes throw jabs at the character, saying that Superman’s off-the-scale power makes him hard to relate to. Not true. Superman is just Clark Kent from Smallville at heart and he’d happily munch on a burger chatting with you about football prospects.

Superman’s humble roots enable him to empathize with all people from the mighty to the meek. He’s not Superman because he has the power to take over the world. He’s Superman because he won’t.

The very first super hero is the one with the biggest heart. After 75 years, we’re all still looking up in the sky.

It’s very hard for me to be silly about Superman, because I’ve seen firsthand how he actually transforms people’s lives. I have seen children dying of brain tumors who wanted as their last request to talk to me, and have gone to their graves with a peace brought on by knowing that their belief in this kind of character really matters. It’s not Superman the tongue-in-cheek cartoon character they’re connecting with; they’re connecting with something very basic: the ability to overcome obstacles, the ability to persevere, the ability to understand difficulty and to turn your back on it. [Christopher Reeve] – Time, (March 14, 1988)
