Serena Williams’ Serving Up Justice #2 preview

According to Screenrant, Serena Williams wakes up on a destroyed tennis court and finds a young girl looking for her parents. Seemingly, the villains are known as Retrobots, and the American takes them down with her superpower, her tennis racquet.

Most significantly, when the little girl is scared, Wonderous Serena gives her inspiration. She said, “Bravery isn’t about lack of fear. It’s about what you do when you are facing it. You asked for help when you needed it. That’s super brave.”

After looking at the preview, fans cannot wait to read the whole #2 of the four-part series. All credit goes to DirectTV, DC Comics, and Critical Mass for making this exceptional adventure come true.

Besides, Serena is a big comic book and superheroes fan. However, she recently admitted she was unaware of female Hulk or She-Hulk and should read more.

But above all, the 40-year-old American is now a legit superhero in DC Comics. Let’s see where the adventures of Wondrous Serena go from here.
