1:25 B&W Variant cover by GEORGE PEREZ
On sale JUNE 6 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
• Learn what our heroes have been doing since they arrived here five years ago from Earth Two!

Also, Paul Levitz revealed more on the upcoming series in another interview. Things to look forward to:

1. Helena Wayne was 16 years old on Earth-2 prior to being stranded
2. Both Kara and Helena have been stranded on the main DCU Earth for 5 years
3. Kara and Helena parted ways at some point but remained in touch
4. Kara isn't Power Girl yet, but will become Power Girl in Worlds' Finest
5. Helena has been active as both Huntress and Helena Bertinelli for quite a while
6. We'll find out why they chose the identities of Huntress and Power Girl
7. We'll especially find out the story behind the Helena Bertinelli identity (five bucks says the Bertinellis were still on the main DCU Earth and were all still killed)
8. Levitz emphasises Bruce and Clark as their counterparts (probably safe to assume they're still related)

Pretty much what I expected. At this rate I'll have their entire story figured out before I even read the first page of the first issue.

With Peegee's costume--on one hand, I like that they're trying to break up the white a little more. On the other...yeah, I liked the \P/ on the first issue cover better.

What I find interesting is them establishing that they've been around for five years. It makes more sense on Karen's (Kara?) end--it's easier to swallow that she'd become a multimillionaire in five years. But, it also makes me wonder if maybe they'll establish that Helena's had some interaction with the Bat-Family to some degree.

To be fair, I can see where you would go there--in the face they do look alike, and considering the premise of the book, it wouldn't surprise me if we do get a revamp of the Anti-Monitor at some point.

he's also washed out because of the eyebeams so its hard to tell his colors, as well as those tubes he has on his back/ writst... but still.. the solicit should have given it away :D

she started in Gotham as the first issue stated, she HAS to have had contact with them... nothing happens in gotham without Bruce knowing.

Well, probably he doesn't know about her being some sort of relative from another Earth, but I see your point.

And now that I think about it, that could be a decent way of doing it--Helena in this earth was Bartenelli for about five years, had some interaction with the rest of the Bat-Family, but with what happened in Italy, she has to abandon the identity.

From: [personal profile] abriel looks better but I'm still not a fan of the costume.

(I want my boobie window back damn it...)

So it's a boobie blind?

(I apologize for that and rest assured I will be attoning for it next Yom Kippur)

Ummm.... In what way is that a window then? It's a filled in space, the exact opposite of a window.

I know the entire reboot is supposed to make EVERYONE younger (though Bruce can still go through 4 or more Robins) but I really can't picture either Helena (either version of her) or PG (any version of her) as 21 (5 years on main Earth + 16 on Earth-2). They both seem more mature and older than that - even in the reboot. I also don't like making PG and regular Supergirl (who's what -17 or 18 in the reboot) too close to age. I know they are supposed to be alternate universe dopplegangers of each other but I always imagined that PG (Kara Zor-L) was what Supergirl (Kara Zor-EL) COULD become in a decade.

"(Then again, I get told by people all the time I look younger than my actual age of 25 and get carded regardless, so who knows)."

I can relate to that. I'm 23, but one time when someone asked for my ID, after doing so I asked them how old did they think I was, and they guessed 16. I get that especially when I grow my hair out.

But yeah, I can totally see them being young, but due to their experiences (Helena from training with the Batman, Kara from being a super-smart Kryptonian) feeling older in spirit.

Never fear, the boob window is of supreme indifference to me.

it would be interesting if she chose the more "Willing to kill" angle because then she knew batman WOULD keep an eye on her... you know like keeping her dad close in a way....?

OH I do hope then Helena is still dating Catman/that is kept in canon. Then she's just like Daddy, dating the cat themed villain!

I'm glad those ridiculous gold armlets are gone, but the asymmetrical logo cape is already bothering me.

Also not really digging the whole leotard with booties thing.

I'm kind of glad that the boob window is gone, but the symbolism of Peej on her hands and knees while getting blasted by some dude from behind is rather unfortunate.

Every time they try to change PG's costume we end up with something like this.

And eventually, it always goes back.

Al. Ways.
