The debut issue of the Nicola Scott-illustrated New 52 second wave title concludes with the death of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.
"The idea is Earth 2 is the world where they won the Apokolips War, but it was at the cost of their three heroes," Robinson told Comic Book Resources
"And now five years later, an even greater evil is destined to arrive on Earth 2 at some unspecified point in the future and a new group of heroes - without the guidance of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman - have to form and become the epitome of what a hero is."
Robinson said that heroes including Green Lantern Alan Scott and Hawkgirl would rise to fill the void left by the death of DC Comics' 'Trinity'.
"This new team of heroes is going to fill the gaps of void that is left with the death of the Big Three," he continued. "They rise to the occasion and they eventually become the Justice Society of America and save the world!"
