Worlds’ Finest Duo - Huntress & Power Girl
"I think we’re going to be friends forever.”
Summary: Huntress and Power Girl have officially returned to Earth-2, though the Huntress is not excited to be back at all. On Earth-1, she made it clear various times that she had no interest in returning to Earth-2, and that this world stopped being her home once all the people she knew and loved died. She really only agreed to come back just to stay with Power Girl, which I have to admit, is kind of sweet. It’s not often that the Huntress actually shows how much she values having Power Girl in her life.
Worlds' Finest #26 Preview | We're back to 'women are emotional.'
Future’s End one-shot aside, thank whatever Apokoliptian god that this is the last issue Levitz will be writing these two women in.
Better yet, I sincerely hope these two women find themselves in far better hands after World’s End and Future’s End conclude next year.
Lord knows they fucking deserve it after being subjected to some of the worst writing (not to mention bad, inconsistent characterisation) they have seen in the last three years.
Here’s to hoping Marguerite Bennett brings the same solid characterisation she gave to Lois and Lucy in the Lois Lane one-shot to Kara and Helena when she writes them in World’s End.
Wow. Someone actually made a Dystopian Earth-2 look a hell of a lot more fun.
Helena: Sorry, hun. Were they shooting at us?
Kara: I don’t know. I’m not really paying attention.
Summary: The issue begins with a robed Helena Wayne having breakfast in her (expensive) flat in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Kara flies in to tell Helena that they should start preparing for their departure back to Earth-2. She hits the shower to get ready to meet with her lawyer who will finalise her will acknowledging Somya’s daughter as the beneficiary to all of her possessions. While Kara finishes getting ready, the two women have a brief conversation acknowledging that their ‘fun’ will end when they return home and that they may be their world’s last remaining hope against Apokolips. Helena no longer feels that Earth-2 is her home anymore since all the people she knew and loved there have since died.
SEXUAL OVERTONES | We all know none of this happened by accident.
Panel 01: Helena made to look like she’s checking out Kara’s butt.
Panel 02: Helena still has her eyes fixed on Kara while she hits the shower.
Panel 03: Close-up of Helena’s lips.
Panel 04: Sherlocking Kara’s towel. (Too bad this isn’t Buckingham Palace).
All the panels: Cue in Helena’s tongue.
