    The battle isn't the only ball in the air. The Woman in Red and the Sisters Scarlet enact their plan to bait Zeus. This intricately constructed scene shows how you can display a real world threat to the heroes without undermining them. Unlike Sue Dibney, the ladies are not sacrifices. Rather, they are a tactic. Zeus is interested in Earth women and the Sisters Scarlet know this. They courageously volunteer for a calculated risk to save their teammate Fire Girl. The awareness and their determination instills maturity to a stratagem that too often suffers from juvenile treatment. The Sisters Scarlet could be raped by Zeus, but they accept the possibility and maximize their safety. They sway the odds to their favor with the inclusion of Pyroman and Cyclone on the away team, and nobody expresses doubts in their plan. The Superpowers while not a big happy family have faith in each other, and that's a quality sorely missing from modern comic book characters. Read Full Review
