Worlds' Finest #2

Writer: Paul Levitz
Artists: George Perez & Kevin Maguire

Huntress and Power Girl take on a radioactive enemy in the second issue of their title. The non-linear narrative is a fun way to put together the pieces of their journey -for anyone who likes puzzles anyway. In addition to the "present" sequences, this issue, just like the previous one, goes back to the night Robin and Supergirl arrived from Earth-2; then, what seems to be a month-to-month countdown that started 59 months ago; and then events that took place just prior to the Huntress mini-series. This chapter shows how much Kara has changed in five years; she was indeed a girl back then; now she is a confident and assertive woman. The mysteries build up quickly, which is the way to capture one's interest; from the identity of the figure the heroines followed to the boom tube, to developments in Gotham, to the familiar appearance of villain Hakkou, the adventures of this pair look promising and exciting.
