Worlds' Finest #2 / Ravagers #1

Worlds' Finest #2 / Ravagers #1 was created by inactive
Worlds' Finest starring Huntress and Power Girl continues to be a fine showcase for super-females.

Power Girl exhibits super-strength, flight, invulnerability, and heat vision, both in the heat of battle and casually in everyday life. I still think PGs costume is not great, but the art is gorgeous and the story carries you along. Recommended.

Ravagers #1 is less pleasing to me. I don't know if it's the fact that it continues a story from Teen Titans and Superboy that I have not been following, or if there are too many characters to focus on (something that is less of a problem by the end of this issue), or what, but it seemed incoherent and messy to me. Caitlin Fairchild has a leading role, but does not exhibit much in the way of uberness, apart from standing around looking buff when she is in her "super" form.

I agree with G7 post.

Ravagers was a major disappointments (and I didn't have particularly great expectations for that book). The story felt very slow and fragmented and the art was very hit-or-miss. Plus unless you've read (and understand) the whole Harvest storyline of Teen Titans you won't understand the story at all.

World's Finest on the other hand is really good. Although George Perez was never good at creating new costumes I've always been a fan of his style and it works great on this title. Plus the story is proceeding at a nice pace, despite the frequesnt flashbacks (fortunatly none longer than 3 panels).

Indeed WF has been good for both super action and good story. I enjoy Karen and Helena's interactions and they do come off as real good friends. Looking forward to more.

Her using her powers out of costume is the best.
