DC Comics’ third weekly series Earth 2: World’s End is being set up in the Earth 2 ongoing series and in the Worlds’ Finest ongoing series. Earth 2 #25 (spoilers here) served a prelude to World’s End as does this week’s World’s Finest #25.
Whereas a recent issue of The New 52 Future’s End #9 (spoilers here), the second of DC’s weeklies, served as an epilogue to World’s End showing what happened to Earth 2’s heroes and where they are five years from now in the DCU.
It is timely for World’s Finest #25’s World’s End prelude as DC Comics’ finally released its October 2014 solicits including the first four issues of their Earth 2: World’s End weekly. Its clear from those October solicits that Power Girl and Huntress make it back to Earth 2. And Worlds’ Finest #25’s cover pretty reveals that as certainty.
With all three of DC’s weeklies, including its first weekly Batman: Eternal, all ending at the same time with Grant Morrison’s Multiversity in the Spring of 2015, DC appears to be building to a likely multiversal event for April 2015; the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Before we get there, we have to go through Worlds’ Finest #25.
Spoilers and capsule review follow for Worlds’ Finest #25!
As the cover reveals, Power Girl and Huntress – Earth 2’s Supergirl and Robin – finally return to Earth!
Overall an entertaining issue that leads into Earth 2: World’s End. Can’t wait to see how this all plays out.
Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome.
