Ame-Comi Girls #4The latest issue of Ame-Comi Girls (the alternate reality digital comics female-centric version of the DCU) takes us to the futuristic city of Metropolis whose heroine Power Girl saves Daily Planet reporter Jimmy Olsen from Somali Pirates before taking on giant robots and dealing with the unexpected arrival of a female force of Manhunters and her cousin Supergirl.

In a world without a Superman, Power Girl works really well. Our heroine uses advanced Kryptonian technology to truly make Metropolis a city of the future but still has to deal with a xenophobic element that wants the alien (no matter how helpful she is) out of their city. She also kicks quite a bit of ass.

The retelling of Supergirl’s origin isn’t tweaked too much, but before out two super-powered Kryptonian females can get to know each other they’ve got an army of Manhunters to deal with. Goofy? Yeah, but it’s an awful lot of fun and I’m certainly willing to stick around to see where things go from here. Worth a look.

[DC, $3.99]
