SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read WORLD’S FINEST #26 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

The boom tube worked! After five years of being stranded on Earth Prime, young scientist Tanya Spears was able to send Karen Starr and Helena Wayne back home to Earth 2…At least that’s where she hopes she sent them. . . .

Having been knocked unconscious by the boom tube power surge, Tanya groggily awakens to a mystery of her own. Besides not knowing the whereabouts of those who entered the portal, she’s shocked to learn she has an unusual amount of physical strength. For instance, Tanya, trapped under a heavy piece of metal, is able to lift the large debris without any effort at all. . . . All by herself!

How and why does she have this incredible power? And where did her abs of steel and chiseled biceps come from?

The answer to these questions might be just as perplexing. On her quest for information, an attorney approaches Tanya and reveals that Karen Starr has left her the name “Power Girl!”

Now that’s a lot to take in!

Is this the gift Karen alluded to before entering the portal? Below, take a look as Tanya learns for the first time the legacy she is entrusted to inherit from Karen Starr. What does this mean for Tanya’s future?! Sound off in the comments below!

WORLD’S FINEST #26, written by Paul Levitz and illustrated by Tyler Kirkham and Scott Kolins, is available in stores now.
