    Still, this was a fun entertaining read. And I still wonder just when/if these two are going to confide in Batman and Superman about their origins. Wouldn't it be terrible if Superman had a better relationship with an alternate Supergirl than the one from his universe? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Jun 8, 2012

    Worlds' Finest #2 has much more going on than one would catch on the first glance. From the title forward (not the apostrophe) there are subtle hints of a lot more going on. My big complaint here, I want more of the flashback story. Unless Hakkou ties into the mystery being unraveled in the flashback, I think the first issue or so could have stood as a set up to where they are now. Of course with that we wouldn't get the great use of different art teams and the later issue may become weaker because of it. With some great segments and a large number of cliffhangers Worlds' Finest #2 earns 3.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jun 12, 2012

    Spotty entertainment with only a vague sense of direction, hampered by uneven art and even more uneven writing. Marked for Dropping. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Jun 20, 2012

    So, the book varies in quality depending on whether it focuses on the present action scene or the flashbacks. Everything set in the present is uninteresting and defies a certain amount of logic. Levitz still retains the characterization in those moments, but it is overshadowed by the infinitely more interesting flashbacks. Which have great art to accompany the depth of character work. The end result is a book that feels disjointed as the separate narratives don't come together to make a cohesive whole. However don't write the book off as it is entertaining as a character focused superhero title. Read Full Review

    Worlds' Finest continues to hold much potential in concept, but still falters in execution. Hopefully this can be rectified as the series trucks on. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 13, 2012

    Issue #2 feels a less focused than the first issue, and Hakkou is yet another throwaway New 52 villain (whose motives and ties to Apokolips are sketchy at best). Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jun 7, 2012

    But this is merely C-class work at best. If next month's issue is as padded with fluff as this month's is, it will be my last reading the book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 8, 2012

    "Worlds' Finest" has an interesting basic idea, and I'd like to see a book like this succeed. But while the flashback sequences feel right on target, the present day portion of the book could use a bit of a boost. This should be fun, but it ends up just a touch dull instead. Read Full Review
