Powerpuff Girls: The Bureau of Bad #1

Using a concept put to great use in one of the best Batman: The Animated Series episodes ever made, Powerpuff Girls: The Bureau of Bad #1 opens with the Townsville High Villains Council gathering together to gripe about what a menace the Power Girls are and who among them is worthy to lead the group against the pint-sized heroines. If the first issue is any indication, it will take a miracle for these villains to ever reach a consensus.

After the initial set-up, which gives us the awesomeness that is Mojo Jojo, most of the first issue takes place as a flashback involving Princess Morbucks' recent attempt to defeat the heroines by stealing the rights to the name of the Powerpuff Girls. While initially the girls are confused by the turn of events, they soon discover they don't need to be called the Powerpuff Girls in order to save the day.

Powerpuff Girls: The Bureau of Bad gets off to a good start here, and I'll be curious to see what tales we'll get from the various villains in the issues to come. Worth a look.
