The author's original version of Chapter 13

The Trinity
"With this novel, Elliot S! Maggin exhibits his mastery of the super-hero genre, the nature of true heroism, and how to inspire people to greatness.  By pure genius, he weaves DC's legendary mythos with countless other mythologies into a mind-blowingly powerful combination light-years beyond the sum of its parts."

Mark Waid Notes:




Excerpt from Chapter One: City of Dreams


    I had lost my faith in an interesting way.  I believed in the existence of everything:  Heaven, Hell, the Angelic Host, demons and possession, redemption and growth, the value in spiritual terms of the suffering of the innocent, our place in the Universe and the Universe's place in Creation.  I believed in God and all His glory.  I believed in Immaculate Conception and Original Sin.  I believed in something I called Original Sainthood.  I believed in Santa Claus and that men had walked on the Moon.  I believed that an educated man who does not believe in miracles is not a realist.  I bought it all.  Always had.  Still do.  I just did not feel a part of it anymore.  My loss of faith had to do with the continual reminder, on a moment-to-moment basis, to myself and everyone I had ever loved, that we were insignificant, and that the imminent possibility of the loss of our lives and even our immortal souls probably did not matter a damn, either to God or to His emissaries on Earth.

    It was a world without a Superman.
