WRITER PAUL LEVITZ ON WORLDS’ FINEST
Thu, 01/19/2012 - 9:00am
Last week, we announced DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave,” featuring six new series coming in May. In WORLDS’ FINEST, writer Paul Levitz jumps between parallel Earths, following the story of Earth 2’s Huntress and Power Girl as they struggle to find their way back home. But fans of these heroes should keep in mind that they aren’t the Huntress and Power Girl we know so well. Levitz offers some insider insights on what readers can – and can’t – expect from WORLDS’ FINEST:
Nothing's quite the same...the world they're in, the rules of the game, the stakes...so Helena and Kara are facing dilemmas in WORLDS’ FINEST that are nothing like any version of either of their previous lives...
Learn the identities they used on Earth 2...watch why those change when they get here...and see the choices they face. It's a layered puzzle, pulling on the rich history of the DC Universe...but even more on the potential for an explosively different lives in the New 52 universe...and over time, it'll all pull together to affect the lives of so many...
As a writer, it's a true joy to collaborate with star artists George Perez and Kevin Maguire, and to be able to design a series to fit their talents together as seamlessly as possible. And the heroines of WORLDS FINEST are simultaneously old friends (to me, as well as each other) and very new acquaintances that you want to grow closer to...if you can. They're showing a lot of their true selves...but hiding even more.
Welcome to new worlds...and a totally new WORLDS’ FINEST.
