Disappointment's Finest!

Last issue Power Girl and Huntress took down a tattooed god named Xazdi, the Tattooed Woman got away, or didn't, it was kind of hazy on that, and Power Girl's powers are still going haywire.  But this is the issue!  The issue that will give us everything we ever wanted since this title began.  Huntress meets Batman, Power Girl meets Superman.  Well that's at least what we were promised.  Let's see if they made good on that.

Explain It!:

The issue begins with Power Girl collecting diamonds at the bottom of the ocean.  Since the takeover of Starr Industries, Karen has had a little money trouble.  So that killed a few pages, let's move on to Karen and Helena sitting around a hotel room talking about Desaad, and Karen thinking her powers are back to normal now since she hasn't had a incident in over a week.  To prove this point Power Girl takes Helena and flies her out the window, and into the park.  Then of course her powers fail, and the two crash land.  A few more pages killed.  Alright we're now ten pages in, and are given no new information, and the story has gone nowhere.  Boo!  I just don't see how this title can continue, if this is the way the story is presented to us.  almost half a book, and nothing happens of consequence.  I say boo again sirs.

So I bet you were wondering how Karen's legal team were handling the takeover of Starr Industries.  I know I sure was, but before we can get to any legal goodness, Karen's heat vision starts frying the boardroom table, and everyone has to evacuate.  Eventually Karen gets control of herself, and decides she needs to meet Superman.  See you next issue Karen.

Meanwhile Helena is eating an eclair, and thinks that she needs to meet Batman so he can help Karen, and her.  So Huntress suits up, and breaks into the Batcave, where our favorite caped crusader was waiting.  In the end Huntress gets herself caught in a cage, and Batman is asking who she is.  This is not the way I expected this story to go.  Mostly because nothing happened.  Once again.  Boo!

Bits and Pieces

I don't know how this happened, but I just read a comic where nothing happened.  Yeah the last couple pages were fun, but not worth the hype leading to this issue.  Once again we're given a sub par Worlds' Finest, where you come in expecting things to happen, because they haven't for the last couple of months, and you think to yourself things can't go on like that forever.  But no they continue like that some more.  I guess all the mind blowing awesomeness I was anticipated will be held until Batman/Superman #8.

3.5/10
