Worlds’ Finest #6

worlds-finest-6-coverBattle of the Bat-Brats! While breaking into a Wayne Enterprises facility to steal a paltry few million dollars to continue her own pursuits the Huntress runs into this world’s Robin – Damian Wayne.

The comic’s main story (with art by Kevin Maguire) features the children of Batman battling over Gotham as an angry Damian starts to think that there is more to this thief, who seems to have the moves of both Batman and Catwoman, than meets the eye. The back-up story (with art by George Perez) features Power Girl “borrowing” a satellite from Morgan Edge (there’s a name I haven’t heard in awhile) to search for dangerous Apokolips energy signatures, like the monster they fought over the past couple of issues.

The Helena/Damian story works better than Power Girl’s tale which really isn’t given enough time to develop. That said, we are give the brutal one-note Damian though most of the story, at least until his curiosity at Helena’s true identity gets the best of him. I will be interest to see if Helena becomes the New 52 big sister stand-in for Stephanie Brown to teach him a little humility and humanity. Worth a look.

I didn’t like Damian much in this issue but I think I will like seeing him work with Huntress next month.
