Worlds' Finest #19

With Power Girl's wild power fluctuations becoming more frequent and dangerous, the Huntress decides it may be time for the pair to consider finding help. After a year-and-a-half of the title focues on the pair to themselves (other than Helena's friendship with Damian, and Power Girl meeting Supergirl) it appears Worlds' Finest is finally ready to introduce Earth-2's Robin and Supergirl to this world's heroes.

Much of Worlds' Finest #19 is set-up as Kara's latest power freak-outs leave Helena stuck in a public park in her pajamas and almost burn down Starr Industries' board room. Realizing her friend needs all the help she can get, Helena breaks into the Batcave hoping to convince this world's Batman to help the daughter of another world's Batman.

I"m glad the pair's isolation is coming to an end, but I would have preferred the issue to move along quicker rather than simply set-up events for confrontations which apparently won't even take place in this title (as DC plans to begin the pair's introduction to the wider DCU in Batman/Superman #8). Worth a look.
