Super Secret Crisis War #4

As the mini-series moves past the halfway-point, the group of displaced heroes battle the robot versions of themselves created by the League of Extraordinary Villains. Although hopelessly outnumbered by the robotic duplicates, Samurai Jack, Ben Tennyson, Dexter, Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttecup manage to hold their own. Eventually Aku stops the battle by threatening the homeworlds of each of the heroes should they refuse to surrender and allow their consciousness to be copied, altered, and installed in each of the warriors making the robotic army unstoppable.

Although the latest issue continues to keep Mojo Jojo on the sidelines, the reveal of Aku's true plan and threat against a world Mojo has no intention of letting be destroyed before he can conquer it, convinces the Powerpuff Girls' arch-nemesis to switch sides and (GASP!) play the hero?!

The latest issue delivers on the action and off-beat humor (such as Dexter using the severed-head of a Buttercup bot to fight off his attackers) and is certainly worth a look.
