Power Girl #25

The second half of "We Can Be Heroes" may not be quite as good as the first, but writer Judd Winick finds a way to wrap up Rayhan Mazin's storyline in more than satisfactory fashion. It's too bad the DC reboot is looming and we won't get to see what this character might have become.

Mazin fights off both Batman and Power Girl, causing storms across the city, in an attempt to get to his father's death bed for a few final moments together. Power Girl goes to the skies in an attempt to control the weather unleashed by Mazin's anger by doing her "Meteorological Girl Thing." Heh. Batman's attempts to slow down Mazin in the hospital are less effective.

The final scene between Mazin and his father works well, as does Power Girl's conversation with the hero branded a terrorist (even if it does feel slightly rushed). However, Kara's final pages with Batman feel a little awkward and don't flow nearly as well as similar scenes she had with Dick Grayson a few issues back. Worth a look.
