Worlds' Finest #21

"First Contact" comes to a close as the mad-scientist and evil doppelganger of Power Girl's old friend Ken succeeds in ripping open time and space to a portal back to Earth-2. For the first time I realized how similar this title is to Samurai Jack as the lost heroes finally find a portal home only to be denied at the last second and will continue their quest elsewhere.

Although there's a lot of family bickering here, Worlds' Finest #21 includes some nice moments as well including Batman and Huntress instinctively working as a team and even offer a slight celebration afterwards.

Seeing the evil Superman inside the alternate dimension the pair believed to be their old home doesn't deter them from agreeing to continue to seek a way back to their Earth. Although I don't think we're likely to see a Power Girl/Superman team-up anytime soon I'd like DC continue to explore the Batman/Huntress relationship going forward to see where it may lead. Worth a look.
