"World's Finest" (DC Comics) By Paul Levitz, George Perez, Kevin Maguire, Robson Rocha, R.B. Silva and Scott McDaniel
For fans who love: "Earth 2," "Legion of Super-Heroes," "Birds of Prey"
"World's Finest" is a unique modern nostalgia piece that has returned two of DC Comics' second-tier icons to their roots, resulting in a fresh, new take on the beloved characters. For decades, The Huntress and Power Girl have been removed from their original pedigrees: Post-Crisis, Helena could no longer be the daughter of the Earth 2 Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle, and Karen could no longer be the older version of the Earth 2 Supergirl. Instead, writers and artists had to come up with new origins for both characters. In Huntress' case, it worked; in Power Girl's case, it resulted in a mess of disjointed continuities. Now, with the New 52 in place and "Earth 2" a legitimate hit, Helena and Karen have returned to the their original status quo, though in this reality they've been forced to survive on DC's prime Earth after their Earth 2 mentors were killed at the hands of Darkseid. It's refreshing to see two characters that have been struggling to find identities for so long be allowed to exist as they were meant to since their inception. As Power Girl and Huntress learn about the New 52 Earth, so do the "World's Finest" readers. Levitz was born to write these characters, and it shows, as their friendship and banter sings in a classically and lovingly done comic about two old friends that have been away for a long time.
