Are Helena Wayne and Power Girl lovers or best friends
So far, they’ve always been portrayed as besties, from the 70s till today. It’s a very close, intense, and passionate friendship but they’re friends. HOWEVER, there’ve been some lesbian vibes between them, coming especially from Helena who could be interpreted as bisexual in the current World’s Finest run.
I ship them because they make an awesome team, they’re cute together, and personally, I wouldn’t mind more sexual diversity in the DC universe. Can you imagine The Batman’s daughter being interested in girls? That would be something huge!

New 52 Helena Wayne does read fabulously queer in ways you never saw happen with her pre-Crisis counterpart, who did read as believably straight.
If both versions of Helena Wayne ever meet in one of DC’s continuity-clusterfucking events, it’d be interesting to see their reactions to each other’s sexual preferences.
New 52 Wayne would definitely comment on pre-Crisis Wayne’s poor taste in men, that’s for damn sure, lol. 😋
Is world's finest: power girl and the huntress cancelled?
It hasn’t been cancelled. DC editorial gave their book to the Earth-2 Batman and Superman for the next six months.
I’ll be honest and say that was a really shitty thing for them to do because the problem with the book wasn’t the characters, it was the writer.
Either way, outside of Sensation Comics, DC isn’t getting my money until probably next year. And that’s a big IF.
Judging by some of your posts, I take it you've read Earth 2: World's End. How is it and is it worth checking out?
I only read Earth-2 #27 in its entirety (which was a very solid issue by Marguerite Bennett), the first half of World’s End #1 before skipping down to the Huntress and Power Girl parts, and I tried to read World’s End #2, but honestly the story couldn’t hold my interest long enough before skipping down to the Huntress and Power Girl bits, and that too was rubbish.
On whether or not it’s worth checking out, I’m of the opinion that only you—the reader—can be the judge of that. If it looks like something that might interest you, feel free to check it out. If not, I can safely say you’re missing out on nothing.
For me personally, I’m not going to bother with issue #3 or any of the future issues. The story is not interesting, Usurper Thomas Wayne is given a more important role in the story than he actually deserves (he’s not the real Batman), the Earth-2 women (Huntress, Power Girl, and Red Tornado) were easily possessed by War the minute they attacked her, and the remaining Earth-2 characters (Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Doctor Fate) are basically used as pawns in the overall narrative.
World’s End is, in my opinion, lazy, uninspired shite not worth the paper it’s printed on. It’s a complete waste of talents like Marguerite Bennett and Mike Johnson who are genuinely good writers, and a massive waste of the Earth-2 characters. It’s unfortunate this is the narrative Earth-2 fans are stuck with, but I honestly can’t bother myself with this one. If I want to know what’s going on with my ladies, I’ll just skim through it at the shop for free.
