DC Comics Trinity #13
The Trinity series comes out every week - - I have a subscription because I'm fond of Scott McDaniel's drawing and he seems to pitch in and help on many of the issues. Like the other "event" comics DC has been doing over the last years, it's a big production with many different people involved. I've not been able to make heads-or-tails from the story. Something about 'bad" versions of the various corps of DC superheroes causing mayhem. Closer reading might unravel the mystery.
Issue #13 has a Jim Lee cover: Superwoman is giving Batman grief about something. Reading through the accompanying story, though, it is Superman and Superwoman having the contretemps. I suppose the answer lies in one of the other issues. Or maybe the sales on the Jim Lee and Frank Miller Batman and Robin series means it would be better to have Batman on the cover of Trinity #13, even if the story has no such scene, in classic B-movie promotional methodology.

When I first saw it, I reflexively thought:
