Worlds’ Finest #5

worlds-finest-5-coverIt’s odd that Worlds’ Finest keeps running away from its biggest strength – the relationship between its two leading ladies. Although we get some nice moments with Power Girl and Huntress together, most of this issue is set aside to give us separate adventures for them both.

From Power Girl we get another story of her trying to find a way home for both Helena and herself. This one involves a super-accelerator and a robot from another dimension. And the comic continues the trend for Power Girl to lose most of her clothing for another issue. For Helena, we get an evening out at a Take Back the Night rally where the Huntress is called upon to stop a sniper from… doing something (the comic makes no attempt to give us a reason for the man’s actions).

Although neither story is bad, all of the best parts of Worlds’ Finest #5 come in the conversations between the two women between their stories and at the comic’s beginning as the heroes continue to test Kara’s powers to see how they might work differently in their new home. For fans.

[DC, $2.99]
