Comments: “Hidden Agenda!” Blackjack and Powerteen are hired to catch a thief by Mr.Lodge. The super-heroes do go about their job with professionalism and Powerteen is featured more here. She does have a certain new attitude to being a hero.  Her costume is cute as is her attitude.
“Pureheart Rescue!” Pureheart does have one weakness and it is a beautiful girl. This does make it hard for him to stand up and fight when one is around. Powerteen certainly is one beautifully cute girl who easily distracts Pureheart. He is hopeless around girls the poor guy. It is fun to watch him though.
“Here Comes Powerteen!” Here is where Veronica creates her super-hero persona Powerteen. Veronica does have the drive to make her super-hero a success. Powerteen is a publicity stunt yet somehow she pulls off being a real hero.
These stories are all fun and full of all the Archie characters you have grown to love. Powerteen is a super-hero for any age reader, kids to adults will just love her and her exploits.
