Wonder Girl versus Despero (Young Justice # 2)
I was really hoping we would already catch up with Conner Kent in this week’s issue of Young Justice but alas, we have to wait for Young Justice # 3 before we dive into that. Most of Young Justice # 2 delves into the life of Cassie Sandsmark aka Wonder Girl as she deals with being stuck in Gemworld together with new faces and friends. We even get to see a flashback of Wonder Girl versus Despero.
By the way, this issue was written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Patrick Gleason.
In this flashback, we see the Wonder Girl vs Despero fight out in the public. The Justice League’s long-time enemy has broken out of S.T.A.R. Labs and is trying to make his escape when Cassie found him and they fight.
It just so happened that their fight also landed in the middle of a high school football game.
In this Wonder Girl versus Despero fight it also seems a bit OP and doesn’t read the right way. Despero was once the Justice League’s most deadliest enemy. He’s the alien that’s got both brain power and brawn. And it feels weird to see him being pummeled by Wonder Girl, when it took several members of the Justice League to best him.
Its funny that people thought she was Zatanna too.
