DC Reveals First EARTH 2, WORLDS' FINEST Covers


Update, 1:05 p.m. eastern: And here's George Perez's cover to Worlds' inest #1, also debuting in May, and featuring Huntress and Power Girl, two characters from Earth 2 "stranded on our world."

This is reader's first look at The New 52's Power Girl, whose costume has eliminated the much-criticized "cleavage window" that has been part of her look for years.

Worlds' Finest is also set to debut in May, written by Paul Levitz and with artists George Perez and Kevin Maguire alternating story arcs. Levitz talked to Newsarama about the series in January.


Original story: There's still not a lot known about DC's new Earth 2 series set to debut this May, other than the creative team of writer James Robinson and artist Nicola Scott, and that it's set to star the Justice Society.

Exactly what form this Justice Society will take isn't yet clear, and on Friday DC revealed a variant cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado that features alternate versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, rather than familiar Justice Society characters like Alan Scott, Jay Garrick and Wildcat.

In January, Robinson gave this Earth 2 tease: "Earth 2 is a world that's very like our own, but at the same time vastly different. It has known great conflict and danger...a dark menace defeated but at a great cost both to the Earth and to its superheroes of that time. Now, in the present as new menaces emerge to attack the Earth, so new heroes must emerge too, learning to work as a team (or perhaps Society is a better word) while facing these new threats head-on. Who are these heroes?  Will their powers include speed, bestial fury, and maybe even green light? Wait and see."

Here's how DC described Earth 2 in its original announcement: "The greatest heroes on a parallel Earth, the Justice Society combats threats that will set them on a collision course with other worlds."
