Worlds’ Finest #18

Control Issues

Power Girl is fun.  Her powers are out of control ever since her encounter with Desaad her powers have been crazy going on and off.  So in the last issue, she decides that a sun bath in space should work better for her.  Even that gets out of hand as she can’t even her intake, falling down to Earth crashing near Helena and causing disaster to reign.  So Helena needs to hold her under water to get her to literally cool down.  It was a good move.  Anyway, they decide to team up to find the girl with the shadow powers and they find her and find the person that she is working for.  Turns out that she is part of a cult.  So as they are fighting her and her master, wouldn’t you know it, Power Girl’s powers flicker out again and Helena has had her tushie handed to her.  This leads to Power Girl using the crossbow!  That was priceless, absolutely priceless, not to mention awesome.  The characterization and fun loving nature of both of these girls is amazing.  For two characters who have lost so much, they work well together, and they have found a way to make the most of their new lives, becoming sisters, their own little family in this foreign world.  It’s entertaining, action packed and a fun read.  These girls are more than they ever were, their serious sides are still there, but their lighter sides shine in this new 52.





Star Wars #12

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…*cue music*

Sorry folks just couldn’t resist doing that.  Anyway, after an attack on the Rebellion sends them going through space, it turns out it was all a hoax to gain more friends for the Rebellion, which has put Princess Leia in a tight spot as someone proposes to her, making her come to the decision to accept the proposal to give the Rebellion a home on Arrochar. A surprising shocker due to the fact that she could tell no one due to the security concerns that were Mon Motha’s own creation.

The writers of this comic have done an amazing world of expanding the world of Star Wars while remaining true to the continuity of the already established series.  The character development captures the characters that were brought to life, making them the characters we all know and love and making us love them even more, if that was even possible.  It was an exhilarating read and Leia is awesome.  Her determination her, attitude and strong will make her such a lively character, and the subtleties between her and Han Solo are brilliantly done.  We all know they love each other and belong together, being seeing them on this road, and seeing how their relationship developed, complete with hardships and trials makes this a even better read than before.
