aeka: (Huntress [angry]:)
[personal profile] aeka posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Continued from the JSA Annual I posted a while back, only with more clusterfuckery abound.

Picking up where the last story left off, Huntress realises she's been telling her life's story to a Power Girl, but not her Power Girl. Needless to say both she and Power Girl 2.0 are not happy campfire girls.

The rest of this clusterfuck begins with Power Girl 2.0 raging over the idea of an "imposter" trying to take her place, as well as her obsession with finding the whereabouts of *her* long lost Superman/Kal-L. She then gets the entire JSI to initiate a witch hunt for the real Power Girl, thinking she has all the answers.

From JSA #20: 7 out of 22 pages.

At this point Power Girl is fully aware now that the Earth-2 she just landed on isn't her Earth-Two, and manages to find her way back to the main Earth with a little help from that Earth's Michael Holt. Unfortunately, with the entire JSI hot on her tail, she isn't safe for very long as Power Girl 2.0 and the gang catch up to her to bring her back to Earth-2 for interrogation.

Power Girl tries pleading with Huntress, but to no avail. Feeling angry and confused, Huntress pulls out her father's kryptonite ring to subdue her, while sporting a very Helena Bertinelli-like glare. Poor girl. :(

Back on Earth-2, things don't fare well for Power Girl as she finds herself strapped inside the Batcave.

I can't tell you how satisfying it was to see Power Girl put her Earth-2 counterpart in her place after having to put up with her BS for most of this story. But then I got sad for her when she looked at this version of Helena Wayne and remembered that her Huntress is dead and gone. -sniffle- :'(

(Also, as much as I love Helena Wayne like I love chocolate, it always bothers me how none of her inner conflicts ever get properly addressed or resolved before being retconned in a reboot).

Anyway, the story ends with Power Girl being shortly rescued by her own JSA team, and Starman explaining to the JSI members that two Power Girls exist because the multiverse exists, etc etc. Kara also returns home with a better sense of purpose and closure.

I'm still wondering who the mysterious Hourgirl/woman was that appeared later in the JSI team portrait, glad to know an E-2 survives out there somewhere.

There was mention of a Rebecca Tyler or so. In my personal canon? Its Bethany. But, I aint right.

With Didio's talk of "resting" the JSA, I hope that they return after Grant Morrison finally does Multiversity. I'd be OK with the JSA being on another Earth, and having multiversal crossovers like in the good old days the DC higher-ups seem intent on restoring.

If it would mean keeping the JSA, I'm all for it!

Out of curiosity, did we find out why the other Helena was so paranoid and avoiding her big brother?

Wasn't she in love with him?

Possibly. I remember that being hinted at in one scene in the old Huntress series in the 1970's or 80's, though then it was a mutual "moment" between them that left them both slightly disturbed. Never a fan of it myself.

Not a fan either. I think that's what the heart to heart in this issue (or the annual) is about though, as I vaguely recall.

And why I do remember something about mind control?

Wait, wasn't that it? She had feelings for him and he came onto her real creepy while he was under mind control?

Based on the first part of this, shown here:

I thought the point was that she's always been in love with Dick (hmm...could have phrased that better), but she was dating someone named Harry Sims, the DA of Gotham. The Joker attempts to use Sims to create a new Two-Face, but only ends up horribly injuring him, instead. This happens right after Sims proposes to Helena, but before she can say 'No'....because she loves Dick (no really, need a better way to say that).

However, now that Harry is in a coma and horribly disfigured, she feels that she CAN'T just drop him....and meanwhile she thinks she can't tell Robin about her feelings, for fear he'd drop everything to be with her, maybe? But she's so lonely that she can't bear to near him, so she's blocking him out, I guess.

Regrettably, on Earth-2, Alfred's gone...or he'd sort this shit out RIGHT QUICK.

I do remember a reason was given, but I'd have to do a re-read to check what it is.

she worried that if he let him get too close to her, he would be an easy target for all of her enemies who want to get to her through him.

And Robin doesn't have enemies of his own? (Like, a good 20 years MORE worth of enemies? OK, a bunch of them have passed on at this point, but still.)
