    First, local law enforcement, not a fictional organization that lacks jurisdiction, respond to the hostage crisis. Second, the locals recognize Liberty Girl's costume, but they do not accept her as the real deal until the very end. She, unlike Donna Troy, exhibits the confidence and skill one expects from an experienced super-hero. Third, Liberty Girl, like Donna Troy, seems to make a tactical error, but her reasons are given, unlike those of Donna Troy's, in the locals' dialogue. The "error" in this case turns out to be planned. Fourth, the way the hostage situation plays out actually surprises. Fifth, Liberty Girl's ties to her past are not sledgehammered into the story. Instead, the writers remark on Liberty Girl's past in dialogue that exhibits the characters' personalities. As a result of this story, I can honestly say that I like Liberty Girl. I can't say the same about Donna Troy. Read Full Review

    Also in this issue is Liberty Girl. Theres a plug to this other heroine within the lead story as people comment on Flares outfit in the courtroom. The backup story involves Liberty Girl helping police thwart a hostage situation. The question asked by the police officers at the end of the story echoes the readers, but no answers are provided. It seems most will have to pick up Liberty Girl #1 by Dennis Mallonee and Mark Sparacio to get more background on this bronze goddess of freedom. Read Full Review
