This Just Happened: A Kryptonian explosion

This Just Happened: A Kryptonian explosion

By Clark Bull Friday, February 28th, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read BATMAN/SUPERMAN #8 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

“First Contact” part 1 begins with the amazing storytelling of Greg Pak and the phenomenal artwork of Jae Lee. Huntress – Batman and Catwoman’s daughter from Earth 2 – and Power Girl – Superman’s alternate-universe cousin – meet the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel for the first time!

Trust is hard for Batman, especially since Huntress has no counterpart in his universe he can compare her to. And she seems to know every secret in the Batcave! Can he trust the daughter he never had? And how does Huntress feel to see Bruce Wayne alive and well, when he no longer exists on her home world?

Meanwhile, Power Girl is struggling to keep from exploding from the surplus of power coursing through her. What did Kaizen Gamorra do to her that is causing this reaction? Superman needs to look past her resemblance to Supergirl and decide if an out-of-control Kryptonian is safe for anyone to be around!

Take a look below as Superman catches Power Girl moments before she detonates. Then sound off in the comments section about his decision to stick with her when neither of them knows if there’s a chance of surviving the blast!

BATMAN/SUPERMAN #8, written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Jae Lee, is available in stores. And “First Contact” continues with part 2 in WORLDS’ FINEST #20, also on spinner racks now!
