    This comic was a fun read despite the few flaws this comic had. Compared to the part 1 of the story this comic would be okay. But together would make you want to go back to the comic store again and again asking when the next issue comes out so at least it leaves you coming back for more. So enjoy this issue and lets hope these guys come out on top of the mess they landed themselves in. Read Full Review

    So some rough characterization with Power Girl. Some good characterization with Huntress. Some 'rough around the edges' art. It sounds like Worlds' Finest, doesn't it? I have to say, it probably suffers a little bit from being released on the same week as (and read immediately after) Batman/Superman #8. Still, it is good to see Huntress and Power Girl interacting with the DCU at large. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Apr 15, 2014

    The Earth 2 angle to this issue was interesting, and the most interesting dynamics of the changing team ups have really been entertaining. The best part of the comic once again comes at the hands of Gamorra, who is creating mass produced super humans, which was his whole gimmick as a super terrorist in the Authority comics of the past. Seeing him re-envisioned wrapped up in a multiversal storyline is truly a treat, making me wonder if the Stormwatch team is going to make a cameo in this event, if only for old times sake.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 7, 2014

    Although it lacks the big moments of the characters meeting for the first time, the second chapter continues to play on how this world's Batman and Superman are similar yet different to those our heroines remember from their own parallel world while revealing our villain. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Mar 3, 2014

    Worlds' Finest #20 is one of the better issues of the series thanks to the focus on character development from Greg Pak and regular writer Paul Levitz. While Karen and Helena have been the main focus of the entire series, Levitz often used their desire to return home as a crutch in his storytelling. Here, though, having the girls interact with Batman and Superman has done wonders for both duos. Read Full Review

    We're finally getting some real answers to Power Girl's fluctuating powers, and it's about time because this has been going on for way too long.  I'm still a bit perplexed on how we go from blaming Desaad for her problems to this story's out of nowhere answers, and jumps to conclusions.  Hopefully all my concerns and complaints will be laid to rest, but I doubt it.  I'm very curious to see if First Contact comes out on top, or is just another flop.  Get the book and see for yourself.

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Feb 28, 2014

    Levitz's script gets all the broad strokes right, but he doesn't handle the nuance the way Pak does, and so this book just seems like a less refined/clever/well done sequel to a really special issue. Read Full Review

    Letting PG and Huntress learn that home was still around was good. Batman was used well, skulking in the shadows. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Mar 1, 2014

    Unless you're dead-set on completing the entire “First Contact” saga, I would suggest skipping this. The premise of Power Girl and Superman's powers spinning out of control isn't that compelling and the artwork in this issue gets quite messy. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 27, 2014

    While this crossover's first installment in Batman/Superman is a gorgeously drawn piece of work, Worlds' Finest #20 is an ugly, ill-fitting read. Read Full Review

    Definitely felt like Batman/Superman's less fortunate younger sibling. I'll still stand by the decent writing and characters, but the art left a lot to be desired in this issue. Judged against previous World's Finest issues, this one was better than some, but not the best.
