The Mary Sue Exclusive

An Exclusive Preview of Worlds’ Finest #7 Featuring Power Girl and The Huntress!


Worlds’ Finest is a comic I’m really enjoying right now, for a number of reasons. First, one of the characters is Batman’s daughter, which is basically who I wanted to be from the age of eleven to probably… sixteen or seventeen. The comic features Helena Wayne and Karen Starr, the Robin and Supergirl of Earth-2, unexpectedly transported to our universe in the heat of a battle against Darkseid in which both of their mentors perished, which brings me to the next reason why I love the comic: any superhero story that so prominently features a friendship between women is to be cherished. And finally, issue #7 marks the second part of a story featuring Helena’s Earth Prime counterpart: Damian Wayne. Damian is something of a divisive character in fandom and even here at The Mary Sue (Jill loves him… ugh). I took no small pleasure in seeing him matched in sass and kick assery last issue, and I look forward to seeing it again.

In conclusion: Worlds’ Finest has a lot going for it, so I’m happy to say that DC Comics has offered us an exclusive preview of the first six pages of issue #7 and two of its covers.

In this issue:

  • Robin begrudgingly helps Huntress track down the threat to Wayne Enterprises, but little do they realize that threat is actually tracking them!
  • Meanwhile, Power Girl continues to explore the connection between Earth 2, Apokolips and this Earth, only to find herself in a stand-off with…a bunch of heavily armed 10-year-olds?!

    Susana, I just want to express my support for your disdain of Damian. Solidarity!

    This is the first time I see the new Power Girl costume. It’s classier than the old one. I didn’t know there was some positive to the new 52.

    A raspberry in your direction, sir!

    I love the little turd. I think they are really embracing his total jackassary (I will defend my wording to the death) and I adore them for it.

    A few words on Power Girl’s new costume.

    I don’t like it.

    Don’t get me wrong. I don’t need or want “the window” back. It’s not integral to her character and I think a costume change was a step in the right direction. But the new suit is kind of boring. The best I can say about it is that if you were to add a suspiciously avian helmet to the new costume she’d fit in quite well with the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.

    My dislike of Damian is proportional to the writer and what they’re doing with him. I think he worked best with Grayson-as-Batman but I’ve been digging B&R. I certainly like him more than Jason Todd who’s only useful dead or crazy. *blek*

    Agreed. There needs to be some design tweaks to make it more iconic.

    Seconded. I like that they’ve changed her costume but don’t like the direction they went in. I liked the shoulder cape thing she had going on the old costume, I just hated the damn window.

    Awesome. Power Girl’s costume seems practical, at least. I hated it in Superman/Batman: Public Enemies when they made her breasts a distraction for the Japanese Toyman (who I’m guessing is a gross realistic representation of sexist ‘Nerd Boys,’ as far as objectifying women goes), who was trying to SEE THROUGH her clothes with some Super Peeping Tom Gadget.

    My only Nitpick, which may just be a coincidence, Huntress’ tears into her pants seem to be revealing more of her butt area than Robin’s…

    What’s with the goofy poses and weird lighting on the cover?

  • Jamie Jeans

    Wait… WAIT.

    Damian is STILL around?

    The child born of rape? HE’S still around?!

    DC Comics does away with Cassandra Cain but they keep his arrogant, shitty ass around?

    No wonder I don’t buy DC Comics anymore…

    Born of rape?

  • Jamie Jeans

    Yeah, Talia had sex with Batman without consent and, I believe, while he was under the influence of drugs.
