Sonik makes a really disappointing return in World’s Finest 318 (Aug. 85), in a story by Cavalieri, Delbo and Alfredo Alcala.
After an attempted murder of a rock star during a concert, at which Sonik goes into action, he winds up more or less drafted into becoming the man’s bodyguard. So much for being a hero of the streets. Superman and Batman spend the issue dealing with other problems, as Cavalieri does his best to create a through-line in this last year of tales, but that just leaves Sonik stuck in a milieu that is not his.
The only scene that stands out does so for sheer silliness, as Sonik is forced to waterski down a looped ramp into a pool, just for the rock star’s amusement.
