Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up! #5

Realizing the girls need all the help they can get to stop the mutated DeeDee from wreaking havoc across the multiverse, Professor Utonium and Dexter enlist the help of an unlikely ally: Mojo Jojo! That is right. The villain of the Powerpuff Girls is now their partner. He who is Mojo Jojo will help his hated rivals locate the girl that is named DeeDee. Mojo Jojo will save the day! Well... not really.

Of course Mojo inevitably betrays Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttecup to steal the power to move between dimensions for himself and remake it in his own image, but, in a nice twist, the day isn't saved by the Powerpuff Girls but by DeeDee who uses her unique skill set to foil the monkey's evil plans.

Much like the Powerpuff Girls title that preceded it, Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up! has proved to be an awful lot of fun (even if not all of the back-up stories were as strong as I'd like). I'm sad to see it come to an end. Worth a look.
