It’s easy to forget, but Maxwell Lord is one devious bastard. He sends Power Girl out to destroy the Justice League International, but it’s not enough to simply put down Captain Atom and the team for what happened with Magogg. No, he makes Power Girl believe she’s fighting a murderous Superman, and the A-list Justice League of America has gone bad so she won’t hesitate, won’t stop, and won’t pull any punches.
Like I said, Maxwell Lord is one devious bastard.
By the end of the issue, when the action has finally stopped a few things are clear. We know Power Girl is now a part of the team, we know how Maxwell Lord is remains forgotten by the rest of the world (it has to do with the collective conscious of the world helping to make someone who remembers him immediately begin to forget), and we know Power Girl can beat up anyone she damn well chooses. Worth a look.
