Worlds' Finest #20

Continuing the "First Contact" storyline begun in Batman/Superman #8, when Superman becomes infected by the same nanites causing Power Girl to loose control of her powers the foursome of heroes split up to keep the pair of malfunctioning Kryptonians away from each other.

Power Girl and Batman fly ahead to New Gammora, where the Dark Knight Detective has deduced the trouble has originated from, and where they discover the mad scientist behind Kara's recent troubles which are only a byproduct of his plan to perfectly clone Kryptonian DNA, while Huntress and Superman make their way more slowly to the same locale giving the Man of Steel time to recover.

Although it lacks the big moments of the characters meeting for the first time, the second chapter continues to play on how this world's Batman and Superman are similar yet different to those our heroines remember from their own parallel world while revealing our villain. Worth a look.
