Worlds’ Finest #2

worlds-finest-new-52-2-coverI was surprised at home much I enjoyed the first issue of Worlds’ Finest which reintroduced Huntress and Power Girl as heroes from Earth-2 stranded in the New 52 DC Universe.

Although the second issue isn’t bad, it’s certainly has to be considered a disappointment. Sure we get a few more flashbacks to the ladies early days on a new Earth (but even these are rather bland), and I certainly liked the idea of how Power Girl fuels Starr Industries (by mining rare minerals such as Dysprosium from deep in the ocean), but neither battle between the pair and the radioactive Hakkou, who destroys a large section of a Starr development site for unclear motives, is all that interesting.

Issue #2 feels a less focused than the first issue, and Hakkou is yet another throwaway New 52 villain (whose motives and ties to Apokolips are sketchy at best). Hit-and-Miss.

[DC, $2.99]
