I’ve strayed completely from the New 52 Earth 2 things until this issue. Why? For it contains Damian Wayne. Do be warned of spoilers.
If the intro wasn’t a hint, this is the first issue here for me, so I’m a bit blind. As such, the entire Power Girl half completely made no sense to me at all. Take that into account, all her parts came off rather boring. She teases austronauts, is scanning for some enemy or something, and apparently has her secret known by a small company. Oh, and there was a random and seemingly completely pointless cameo by Supergirl. Why? I don’t know, to waste space perhaps?
In terms of Robin/Huntress confrontation, well it was boring. Levitz was boring with his writing, and while the art and colors I don’t feel I can really claim as bad by any means, well they didn’t help at all. Too stiff with Robin in the same pose it seemed for over half his panel, not to mention a few odd body positions. Constant use of refering to Bruce and Damian as “Not-___” or otherwise claiming posession or just downright looking down on… Well everything by Huntress really dragged on. A couple times in passing wouldn’t have been bad, but its constant. It didn’t seem Levitz had a great take on Dmian either and over did the young Robin. The end feeling too quick of a turn around for both sides too.
While I will peek through next month’s issue, I doubt after reading this one I’ll actually buy it. Just came off too bland and generally badly written.
