Surprise Oz in the comics

It turns out that Fables wasn't the only Ozzish appearance in this month's comics order. Power Girl #27 has a villain giving Karen a choice of three crises to solve, and only one minute to do it, so she can only pick one — or so the bad guy thinks! She may not be the Flash, but PG has speed, and is able to not only take care of all three, she also solves a couple of other problems along the way. But the first place she goes is Brazil to save a friend who's been kidnapped. Now, they could have used just about anyone they wanted to, but who did the writers choose? Cyclone! So my favorite Oz-themed superheroine gets one last hurrah before the entire DC Universe resets itself. Sadly, no word yet on the fate of the JSA or Cyclone in the DCnU, but I hope they show up in some form.

The only word on the JSA is that they're being done by James Robinson and Nicola Scott, and that it will take place on Earth-2. When, it's not sure, but it'll be happening.
