Worlds' Finest #4

Writer: Paul Levitz
Artists: George Perez, Scott Koblish & Kevin Maguire

Huntress and Power Girl deal with the menace of Hakkou and the threat of nuclear fallout. The final chapter of Rebirth falls short compared to its previous installments; no answers are provided regarding Hakkou's origin, nature or agenda; there was no payout for following the story for four months; even the yesterday sequence failed to add a significant contribution to the backstory. The dialog, meanwhile, felt forced and almost trying too hard to sound current. On the plus side, there is non-stop action, giving both heroines the opportunity to showcase their respective skills, and the art continues thriving with clean finishes and vibrant colors. Despite its flaws, the story is still entertaining, and the arc overall is a good introduction for the characters. Next month comes issue number zero featuring Robin and Supergirl from Earth-2, and that one for sure will be a gem.
