The Dragon Ball Super manga recently made a comeback to tell a very different story from what we had seen as part of the Granolah Arc, with Goku and Vegeta once again sitting on the sidelines continuing their training in an attempt to to reach the same level as Frieza and his latest transformation. With the print story following Goten and Trunks as teenagers and seeing them patrol the streets as the new superheroes Saiyaman X1 and Saiyaman X2, a hilarious moment pays homage to the first Spider-Man movie where Trunks takes over a page from Peter Parker .
Warning. If you read the last chapter of Dragon Ball Supers manga, chapter 89, you might want to stay away, because we’re diving into spoiler territory here.
Trunks’ crush on Mai, the member of the Pilaf Gang who found herself transformed into her younger self thanks to a wish cast on the Dragon Balls during the Resurrection of F storyline, is a disturbing one. Mai may have the body of a teenager, but her mind is still that of a full-fledged adult, a piece of information that Vegeta and Bulma’s son is not fully aware of at this point.
While the latest storyline sees Trunks and Goten sporting superhero outfits in the same fashion as Peter Parker in the Marvel comics, movies, and television shows, a lunchroom scene takes things a step further and sees the hybrid Saiyan duplicate a move in which he is able to catch airborne soup with its amazing speed.
Of course, this isn’t the only nod to everyone’s favorite web-slinger in the final chapter, as Trunks is able to save Mai from near death at the hands of Dr. Hedo’s creation, Beta 1, who took the form of a classmate. . With Mai being rescued by Saiyaman X1, she receives flashes of the Trunks from the future, meaning she could believe the new masked hero is in fact Trunks’ doppelgänger who returned to the future, albeit a very different timeline than the one he once had. knew.
While Trunks nearly spilled the beans on his secret identity in an attempt to win Mai’s affection, Goten was able to stop him at the last minute by keeping his mouth shut and stopping Vegeta’s son from revealing his alter ego to their classmates. With dr. Hedo still working in the background, it will be interesting to see what additional events will take place in this story leading up to the events of Dragon Ball Super: Superhero.
