Trinity of Sin: Pandora #2 Review


            Oh the sins are at it again.  Pride summons Envy to meet her in Giza.  She knows that Pandora is trying to find a way to open the box, and wants Envy to delay her, or stop her.  To what end is unknown.  Meanwhile outside Bell Reve, both S.H.A.D.E. agents and A.R.G.U.S. agents are investigating the site that Superman freaked out at, when Pandora handed him the box.  Pandora seems to be the priority of both agencies.  While the two head agents Agent Kincaid, of S.H.A.D.E., and Agent Chang of A.R.G.U.S. bicker about jurisdiction, Pandora is arming herself to the teeth, to complete her mission, to open the box and send the evil back.

            Later, the Secret Society investigates the scene, to try and find traces of Pandora for themselves.  Vandal Savage (who appears a lot more regal than last scene in his DC Presents: SAVAGE), Giganta, and Signal Man, go over the energy readings in the area.  Signal Man informs the team that if Pandora shows up again, he'll find a way to spot her.  After hearing on the news of Superman's involvement in Dr. Light's death Pandora realizes that if she cannot find a heart of pure good, she will have to find a heart of pure darkness to open the box. 

            Pandora goes to the Secret Society members, but take them by surprise.  Signal Man panics and tries to blind her to no avail.  Giganta says she'll handle this and smashes Pandora in the ground.  She pulls a Rocky and gets back up, Giganta tries to keep her down, but Pandora uses and exploding knife to take out Giganta's eye.  Vandal Savage moves in.  The two of them have a "who's more immortal fight".  In the end Pandora tells him that she wants to give him the box.  Savage takes the box, but collapses to the ground crying about all the pain he has caused.  Pandora remarks that he is useless to her.  She takes the box, and moves on.  Back at the A.R.G.U.S. field office, Agent Kincaid, and Chang work over the files on Pandora and determine whoever she is, when they find her she will be "liquidated with severe prejudice".

            A bit more to the story, introducing new characters, and giving us some baddie goodness, but it worked all through-out.  I never felt bored, and this issue just makes me want to know more about the secret society's plan for Pandora's Box, and who Pandora will find to finally open the box.  Solid issue, can't wait for the next

8.3/10
