by

With all the movies and television at the San Diego Comic Con, we can often forget the actual comics. Well Major Spoilers doesn’t, and thats why we have the latest and greatest comic news about DC Entertainment’s events Trinity War and Forever Evil. Spoilers ahoy!

The panel was hosted by Geoff Johns, Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes

We Can Be Heroes

  • They all disagree about what this means, some actually like having the Justice League on top since it keeps things simple
