Worlds' Finest #4 (New 52)

The latest issue of Worlds' Finest picks up where last month's left off as Power Girl and the Huntress continue to fight the nuclear energy monster, the Irradiated Man, off the coast of Tokyo. The pair manage to get the monster out of the city and into the harbor where all the have to worry about a jumbo oil-liner and hundreds of sailors.

Worlds' Finest #4 isn't a great end to the arc, but it moves pretty well and Kara and Helena do come up with an interesting way to finally stop the monster. Once again we get more flashbacks from the pair's early days on the new Earth, but once again they seem to be mostly random, relatively unimportant daily events, without any real effort made to tie them into the main story.

In one of the running jokes of the character having her costume constantly torn (that somehow managed to survive the transition into the New 52) Power Girl, after getting lathered in oil, gets a ripped boob window, momentarily helping out that hideous costume. For fans.
