Worlds' Finest #1

There was so much slash in this book I couldn't even pick out which panels to post without exceeding the 4 page limit. So I'll settle for posting the Earth-2 aftermath instead.

First things first, the fate or Helena's Robin costume:

-Sniffle- RIP Helena's Robin costume. :(

Well, that answers the question of how Helena will eventually run into Earth-1 Batman. Very Bertinelli-like there Helena. Or does this make her more like Selina?

And now, Huntress Begins!

I think between Perez and Maguire, Maguire draws Peege the best. Perez's Peege looks ten years older than Helena. @_@

Aside from the problematic Helena Bertinelli death off panel, this was actually a very good issue. Both Maguire and Perez impressed me with their art, plus I like how Levitz writes Hunts and Peege in this book. I'm game for #2!

So E2 Helena Wayne stole money from E1 Bruce Wayne... was that really the wisest course of action for someone trying to keep a low profile? Stealing from BATMAN?

Also "Robin's no use against Darkseid anyway. I'm a joke, you're the one with the superpowers"?? Really? I can't imagine the daughter of Batman and Catwoman EVER saying that.

I loved the way Peege was written here and will actually be coming back. Still hate her costume though.

This Peege is a little too girly for my tastes. To me, PG is always half a breath away from putting a foot in somebody's ass.

It's nice that she doesn't have anti-gravity boobs for once, though.

well at least they gave an explanation for how blindingly stupid it would be to not seek out help on new earth....and if they're smart they created a plot thread that can be addressed in the future....

Hmmm. I noticed they called Steppenwolf the leader in Earth-2 - they never actually mentioned Darkseid. Guess that wasn't actually important.

"There was so much slash in this book I couldn't even pick out which panels to post without exceeding the 4 page limit"

The "prude" bit comes immediately to mind; same with Peege showing off her new costume and "racing" Huntress and them picking themselves up and facing off against Irradiated Man while small talking about their past dating lives.

Also, this was AMAZING.

Still grumping over what happened to Bertinelli.

Will check out if DCnU Helena Wayne is up to snuff though.

So glad Helena can just show up and rob Batman without him knowing it.

I really like Kevin Maguire's art here for the flashbacks (and that's good since he's hit and miss for me sometimes he has the best facial expressions and sometimes it just looks all kinds of wrong).

His version of Kara/Supergirl looks more like the classical Supergirl than I can ever remember any version of Power Girl (and even more so than the new reboot Supergirl). I just can't reconcile this version of Karen as written by Levitz as being the SAME one we saw in Mr. Terrific. They even looked dramatically different (the Mr. T "Karen Starr" looked like a generic blonde - thin with average bust and average looks - THIS by Maguire shows the va-va-voom aspect that all Kara/Supergirls pre-Michael Turner/Jeph Loeb had).

Not sure if it's been posted in s_d already, but Bleeding Cool had this as the last hurrah for the boob window.
