The Man of Steel and the Dark Knight have arrived at the compound of Niles Caulder-the Chief in charge of that strange band of misfits known as the Doom Patrol-but all is not as it seems. While Batman works with Niles to cure Superman of his freakish transformations, a side mission to track a mysterious figure known as "the Demon" attracts the Dark Knight's attention...and moreover, it could have some connection to Superman's poisoning at the hands of Metallo! It's danger, intrigue, and the surprise appearance of Deadman in chapter two of World's Finest!

    Batman Superman World's Finest is pure fun. It's a fun ride from start to finish and the only knock is it's way too quick a read. I'd sign up yesterday for a Waid/Mora vintage style Justice League book. For now, it's fine to sit back and enjoy one of the best titles DC is putting out each month. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 19, 2022

    Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest #2 is phenomenal. This is very much like two comics in one, as the first issues story bleeds into this one before the real plot takes over. This overlapping of the stories between issues creates a longing to keep reading. Read Full Review

    Overall. A fun read and thus far a fairly strong team-up story for DCs two most popular heroes. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #2 is fun. It's a hell of a lot of fun. The series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine with an energy that makes reading the comic enjoyable. It's a reminder that comics can be fun and entertaining and succeed without a dark cloud hanging over every aspect. It's a ray of light that's been missed and needed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Apr 19, 2022

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #2 is an excellent follow-up issue that builds the story with moments that play on the reader's emotions. More heroes of the DCU make their way into this book which is fantastic as it is titled World's Finest, but we get plenty of extra heroes. The time travel part was a little unbelievable, but I won't get too hung up on it for the stake of the story. The issue serves as a good setup that drives you to continue this adventure. I am enjoying the spark of hope that Mark, Dan, and Tamra are bringing to the DCU. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 19, 2022

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #2 takes everything that worked about the first issue and builds on it. Then, it takes everything that wasn't right in the first issue and corrects it. This is a perfect example of classic superhero storytelling and a highly recommended pick for anyone that wants to remember why they liked reading superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #2 is just pure fun. Mark Waid and Dan Mora are doing a wonderful job using the DC Universe to tell an story around Batman and Superman you are fully invested in. Add in the scene stealing moments with Robin and Supergirl, Batman/Superman: World's Finest is truly a series all DC Comics' fans should be reading. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 22, 2022

    Underwhelming villain and potential cultural insensitivity aside, World's Finest #2 is a celebration of the weird and wonderful in the DC Universe. Mark Waid, Dan Mora, and Tamra Bonvillain get to play with all of the toys in this 84 year old sandbox, and this book has everything from blockbuster fight scenes to quick-witted one-liners and banter and the Robin/Supergirl dynamic is especially entertaining.

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Apr 19, 2022

    The second issue of this series is strong and fun, but it's not as good as I think it could be. The comic rambles a little bit, and perhaps the creative team put a bit too much in one issue. But the artwork is beautiful, and when the writing works, it works! Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 25, 2022

    With the introduction of Supergirl, Batman Superman World's Finest #2 also begins a B-story sending Kara and Robin back in time to learn more about an immortal ancient Chinese warlord known as The Devil Nezha who has some connection to current events (but I'll admit being a bit confused by it all). There's obviously some tension between the two younger heroes, that isn't explained, but makes for some fun back-and-forth. Read Full Review
