worlds-finest-new-52-3-coverThe series rebounds from a somewhat disappointing second issue by focusing on the relationship between Power Girl and the Huntress that made the first issue of Worlds’ Finest work so well. The banter between the two heroines works very well here, and the (not-unexpected, but still fun) super-sizing of radioactive baddie gives us a Godzilla-level threat in the middle of Tokyo.

The flashbacks work a little better here by now trying to shove so much exposition and plot into the story. The issue also deftly explains Power Girl’s relationship with Mr. Terrific (as seen in his short lived New 52 series) without getting too bogged down in a storyline of a comic hardly anyone read. We even get a short sequence with cat that may make fans of the original Justice League International smile.

Except for still sticking Power Girl in that truly awful costume (seriously, something needs to be done) the series seems to be back on track after only a slight mistep last month. Worth a look.
