Not trusting the madman, Oliver keeps Arsenal in reserve with a back-up plan should things go wrong by sending his protege to A.R.G.U.S. for some unexpected back-up.

earth-2-new-52-27-power-girl

With Power Girl and the Huntress returned to their own Earth, and the latest issue of Worlds’ Finest turning its attention away from the heroines, I decided I’d give Earth-2 a shot. Despite the fact it concerns a dystopian world still fighting armies of Apokolips, I was pleasantly surprised in this character-driven story centered on the relationships of Kara, Helena, Thomas Wayne, Red Tornado, and Val-Zod. Whether intentional or not, the current feel of Earth 2 (with a black Superman, elderly Batman, and robotic Lois Lane) feels more like the early days of Marvel’s Ultimate line than the New 52.

The Huntress and Power Girl‘s return to Earth-2 begins here. I’m on record as being vehemently against the move. Although the Worlds’ Finest #26 doesn’t sell me on the concept it at least doesn’t lose its way by delving headfirst into a war-torn new world. It’s actually odd, but we see very little of the modern day homeworld of the two heriones in their first issue back home.

worlds-finest-new-52-25-end

The twenty-fifth issue of the series sees both the Huntress and Power Girl make their goodbyes before returning to their own Earth. Although the journey back home has been foreshadowed for some time, I’m less than thrilled with the comic sending the two heroes back to a universe I care even less about than the New 52 version of Earth-1. However, given that future solicitations suggest one or both characters will be making appearances in titles taking place on the main New 52 Earth it’s a bit unclear how long their trip home will last.

Discovering with the right hardware she can indeed open up a portal home, the latest issue of Worlds’ Finest centers around Power Girl doing just that. Selling off the rest of her company to make her gateway, revealing her super-powers to her employees, and throwing all caution to he wind, Karen Star starts the machine and… blacks out the entire city.

After pretty much hating the first issue of Batman/Superman I’ve given the comic a wide berth and haven’t looked back. However, the recent cross-over with Worlds’ Finest involving the Huntress and Power Girl revealing themselves to this world’s versions of their relatives begins here so I found myself picking this issue up (along with Part 2 of the story in Worlds’ Finest #20 also released this week). I was pleasantly surprised.

worlds-finest-new-52-annual-1-punch

Before they were Power Girl and the Huntress on another Earth they were Supergirl and Robin. More times than not comic annuals aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. Overpriced and often featuring multiple disjointed stories from more than one creative group, the standalone issues often don’t even fit into the series’ current storyline.

With Power Girl‘s wild power fluctuations becoming more frequent and dangerous, the Huntress decides it may be time for the pair to consider finding help. After a year-and-a-half of the title focues on the pair to themselves (other than Helena’s friendship with Damian, and Power Girl meeting Supergirl) it appears Worlds’ Finest is finally ready to introduce Earth-2’s Robin and Supergirl to this world’s heroes.
