    The final issue of this series is a pretty solid affair, that is somewhat undone by the simple fact that Peter David had a little too much on his plate, and this in turn results in a rather abrupt finish when it comes to the threat that Xenon posed. I mean it's one thing to say that a villain is scared to be facing a character who has beaten them in the past, but it's quite another to suddenly have Linda gain the ability to fire bolts of lightening, which effectively vaporize Xenon. Now the book does do some solid work when it comes to Linda's conversation with the Spectre, as her attempts to alter the course of history are genuinely heartfelt, and left me wishing Peter David had a little more time to develop this scene. The book also does some nice work on the scene where Linda essentially nails Kara with a sucker-punch to end the debate about her going back in the past, as this is a highly effective way of showing us that Linda recognizes it's the only option available.
