POWER PACK #59-62 (1990): Series ends

In #59, the kids fight the circus of crime, who tried to go straight but didn’t fancy it. But during it, Alex Power is finding himself growing hair at a rapid rate. Next issue…

Alex gets turned into a horse hybrid, like Whitey the alien who gave the kids their abilities way back in Power Pack #1.  I think it’s an allegory for puberty, but it’s strained, labored, and silly.  Like most of the issues of this book for the past 3-4 years.

The Fantastic Four try to cure Alex.  Red Ghost and his super apes join the fun.  This is terrible.

There’s also a battle with some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle types that are controlled by Puppet Master.

Aaaaaaaand we’re done.

At last.
