Powerpuff Girls #2

Professor Utonium agrees to Mojo Jojo‘s request of wanting to return to life as a simple monkey rather than face any more crushing defeats at the hands of the Powerpuff Girls. Once exposed to Antidote X, Mojo Jojo looses his mojo and his intellect and returns to the Utonium's simple lab monkey Jojo.

Although Bubbles is happy at the prospect of having a pet monkey and Blossom believes Jojo deserves a second chance, Buttercup isn't happy with the news that their former archnemesis is returning home with them. The monkey quickly makes a mess of the house and the lab, but Jojo does so without any evil intent of the old Mojo Jojo. The same can't be said for Him who decides to use his mind control for an odd purpose: to make all the other villains of Townsville as helpful as possible and teach the Powerpuff Girls a lesson about second chances.

The issue does a great job with Mojo Jojo's transformation and fallout, and the introduction of Him's odd new scheme seems to spell trouble for the Girls for the next few issues. Worth a look.
