Power Girl Karen Starr takes on one of the strangest people she's ever gone up against: her greatest fan! A love-hungry, too-hip-for-the-room metahuman who'll do anything to win her affection.

    A highly entertaining standalone issue, that turns it's attentions on Power Girl who was in need of such an introduction, as while she was a member of Infinity Inc. (the farm league version of the J.S.A.), she's been out of circulation for the past five years. Plus, while I'm familiar with the character from her time in Justice League Europe, this issue acted as a nice reminder of why I grew to like the character. This issue nicely plays up the idea that Power Girl is a strong personality, who speaks her mind, while also keeping the sense of humor that keeps her from coming across as too forceful, as often happened during the latter half of her time in the Justice League. The issue also creates a fun opponent for Power Girl to square off against, as while his abilities make him little more than garden variety super-powered thug, his obsession with Power Girl makes Lucius Funk (aka. Da' Bomb) into a delightfully silly creation. Read Full Review
