Super Secret Crisis War #5

With the heroes unwilling to surrender, Aku continues to send his army of robot duplicates to pound the Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Ben Tennyson, and Dexter into submission while ordering Mandark to make good on the League of Extraordinary Villains' threat by destroying one of the heroes' worlds should they fail to surrender.

Given Aku's apparent disdain for his contributions to the cause, and believing his world has been targeted (which will make it impossible to rule if destroyed), Mojo Jojo switches sides and attempts to help the heroes stop Aku's plans.

Mojo Jojo's hero turn puts the character back into the action after being largely marginalized over the past few issues. It also earns the respect of Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttecup in an undeniably adorable panel. Realizing at the last minute his world hasn't been targeted it will be interesting to see Mojo's choices in the mini-series finale and what the revelation means to Mandark. Worth a look.
