    I have mixed feelings with the finale of the First Contact Event. I was expecting a full blown cross over, something to mirror or complicate the Forever Evil fallout. That isn't to say that some interesting developments did occur. For one, Darkseid Superman refers to Kara as his "little secret weapon" which adds an interesting element to her character and Superman's plotting in Earth 2. Also, the introduction of Kaizen Gamorra, the super high tech genius, into the powerful subjects and allies that Superman has amassed in his attempt to conquer Earth 2 is a ripple that could reach farther than any yet. I may not continue reading World's Finest or Batman Superman but this series has reinforced my love of Earth 2 for months to come. Read Full Review

    Seeing the evil Superman inside the alternate dimension the pair believed to be their old home doesn't deter them from agreeing to continue to seek a way back to their Earth. Although I don't think we're likely to see a Power Girl/Superman team-up anytime soon I'd like DC continue to explore the Batman/Huntress relationship going forward to see where it may lead. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    So, overall, this seems like it could have been something special but ends up falling short. There just can't be healthy role model/protege relationships in the New 52. Read Full Review

    While this is not a great issue, at least I could see what was going on with Silva's art which is more than I can say for Jae Lee's Batman/Superman issues of this story.  I just had such high expectations for First Contact, and now that it's over I'm just left feeling cheated.  So much potential wasted simply to get Power Girl's powers back on track and to show them the world they left behind.  With the new solicitations for Earth 2's weekly title coming we can see that this is the beginning of the end of Power Girl and Huntress on our world, and all the stories leading up to this were pretty much pointless since they'll be going home soon.  Oh well, at least we can move on to better stories, hopefully.

    R.B. Silva is an artist who can produce great work"when he chooses to. His panels and character models can often be hit or miss, as they are in this issue. There are moments here that are clear and full of energy, but there are also moments where it's tough to follow the action, and you'll find yourself doubling back to figure out what's just happened.

    If there was ever such a missed opportunity, it would be Paul Levitz's First Contact. After reading this issue, it's hard not to wonder what kind of event could have happened if Forever Evil hadn't been going on. Read Full Review

    This book continues to teeter on the edge of me dropping it. I keep hoping Levitz will return to his former skill at writing and DO something with these characters, one of whom he created. But I'm starting to doubt it will happen. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Mar 27, 2014

    The artwork is bad, the action is boring, and the story itself is dull. While releasing Part 4 first was a big mistake on DC's part, it at least lets readers know that they can save $4 bucks 3 weeks from now when Part 3 finally comes out. Why bother with a penultimate chapter when it all leads to such a forgettable finale? Skip it. Skip it all. Read Full Review
