Worlds' Finest #24

With Power Girl busy attempting to finish the dimensional device to send the two heroes home (and restore power to the city which her first attempt caused), Huntress is on her own deal with a hostage situation involving a scientist who works for Karen Starr and a Slavic terrorist planning on using the blackout to detonate a dirty bomb.

Keeping the two heroes separate, Huntress carries the main story on her own as we peek in at Power Girl's attempts to rectify the damage her creation has caused and set up a second attempt in next month's series finale. As the series is ending I guess it's settled that the pair will returning to the New 52 version of Earth-2 which disappoints me as I've enjoyed the small niche within this world Helena and Kara have managed to carve out for themselves.

Although we don't get much interaction between the pair, as a penultimate issue Worlds' Finest #24 works well as the threat to Huntress and the city is far more grave without the safety net of Power Girl swooping in until her bestie already has the situation well in hand. Worth a look.
