*Insert Humorous, Or Relevant Tag Here*

Last issue Huntress was continuing the hunt for the Tattooed Woman arsonist, who wants to punish all the pretty people.  All that rage towards the beautiful, could be put to something constructive like getting money to afford plastic surgery.  Lousy uggos.  Anyway while that was going on Power Girl decided to go into space, to try and fix her powers by getting really close to the sun.  Unfortunately all this did was make her lose control of her powers, and come crashing down to earth, conveniently right by where Huntress was.  So hopefully Power Girl didn't blow up, and take New York with her.  Let's find out.

Explain It!:

So Kara's out of control.  So how do you calm down the powers of a super charged Kryptonian?  Why it's simply you merely dunk them in the East River.  It's really obvious when you think about it.  You think about it yet?  Well stop you'll only hurt yourself.  I know.  

So for the moment it appears that Power Girl's powers are under control, and hers to command again.  So it's time to take down that damned Tattooed Woman once and for all.  Power Girl flies off to go search eight million people, and Huntress uses the police database, and social media to find our villain.  Finally with the help of Google Street View, Helena tracks the baddie to a warehouse in Brooklyn, with similar markings as her tattoos, and hits pay dirt when the Tattooed Woman enters the building.  

Inside we find out that the Tattooed Woman or possibly her name is Tats which is awful, is apart of a cult that take their power from a strange stone god known as Xazdi.  But poor Huntress isn't ready to take on the stone god that suddenly comes to life, and shadows her right in the face.  Well Huntress is down for the count, luckily Power Girl is lazy, and decided to just follow Huntress instead of searching the city.  But uh oh, Power Girl's powers shit the bed again.  What's a Powerless Girl to do?  Well they pick up Huntress's crossbow, and fire a exploding arrow right in it's chest, that's what they do.  So the creature explodes, and possibly kills the Tattooed Woman, and her master, or they got away.  I have no idea, it all kind of gets swept under the rug.  In the end our two heroes have dinner, and exchange banter, in light of the people they possibly killed.  All in a days work.

Bits and Pieces:

There isn't much to this issue.  We've had a three issue arc about the new Tattooed Woman, and Power Girl's powers being all screwy, and nothing really happened.  It seems like the writers just through together a story arc to wait for the Batman.Superman crossover.  I really want to enjoy this title, but when we're given story after story that doesn't further the characters, or add anything new, well it's a hard sell.  The best thing about this issue is the cover, which is amazing, that's all you get.  Three issues and we really know nothing about a new villain, and it's over.  How can that be?
