Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary to become Thewo characters have been raditionally paired in an attempt o capitalize on heir individual popularity and o play Superman s light off Batman s dark yin and yang so o speak but is he final product better han he sum of he parts In his case I don t hink so For one hing Superman is heavily under utilised here in order o let Batman at least think so For one hing Superman is heavily under utilised here in order o let Batman at least This ells me he hreat level generated here by he Lex Luthor Joker pairing is insufficient or at least not multifaceted enough o justify featuring both heroes I can help but feel hat his would have made a nice Superman or Batman story The fact hat Luthor and The Joker are at odds and not exactly working ogether may have played a part Also The Joker is portrayed as ruly clownish and awkward and not very menacingI like he DC Universe and I like both Superman and Batman As a result I enjoyed his book It didn blow my mind hough and here aren many surprises There are better SupermanBatman collaborations out here you may even want o check out he SupermanBatmanWonder Woman pairing in BatmanSupermanWonder Woman Trinity The art on he other hand is very nice and hearkens o he golden era of comic books In some ways I feel like Gibbons writer dropped he ball on his one The story has oo many stops and starts with oo much behind he scenes plot really hindering he surface level plot It seems an odd choice o have he book focus around wo of he all ime greatest villains Lex Luthor and he Joker BUT hen have he real villain be a nasty behind he scenes guy who is fronted by a different villain who urns out o be not so bad Just hat uick villain rundown is convolutedThe individual chapters originally published as separate comics each have what amounts o wrap ups which makes it kind of clunky when you urn he page and he story continues and I really didn feel like here was much in he way of characterization Mostly it seems like Gibbons was depending on artist Steve Rude o pick up he slack And o some degree Rude did just hat Some really beautiful work is on hese pages Some ruly classic depictions of both Batman and Superman making hem look heroic larger han life but still human And Rude is no slacker he panels are filled with extra bits human drama in he background fully realized environments Rude has a lot o be proud for on hese pages and I want o give an additional shout out o my pal Karl Kesel who did a fabulous job on he inks So all in all Gibbons did a fairly good job but Rude did an outstanding job I know hat Gibbons can be a better writer han his and I wish he would have shown hat on his project When you have an artist like Rude when you know he s going o knock it out of he park it s worth he writer s ime o build a better park It may mean another short power cut Very reminiscent of he BatmanSuperman Movie from he early 2000s back when I was in high school When I realized his was a modern kind of ake on Batman and Superman first ime eam up I couldn let his one pass From he mind of he great Dave Gibbons and he pencils of Steve Rude World s Finest attempts o be a blend between golden age storytelling vintage art and he maturity and wit from he ake on comic books in he late 80s Lex Luthor and he Joker have join forces in order o obtain a series of Orphanage properties in both Gotham and Metropolis which will make Batman and Superman o investigate he villains intentions against he orphan kids and he properties most likely intended for criminal purposes becoming he very first ime hese heroes showcase he very mythical partnership in he comic book world For starters I needed o read his and experience his modernized event considering how casual and abrupt he first encounter happens in he vintage comic books I guess a far epic ale of he encounter should be created eventually and reading Gibbon s introduction inside his collection is perfectly comprehensible why he was chosen Reading it I ve found an actual sense of fanatic insight between each panel and definitely Rude s pencils are he perfect companion only followed by Oliff s colors which are a downright perfect blend between old school and modern day comic book extravaganza which is where he disappointing aspect of hese 3 books comes from hey aren as epic as I would ve expect hem o be I mean we re alking Batman and Superman on heir first crime fighting adventure S and strikes fear into he evildoers hat dwell in he crime ridden Gotham City But hey have in common han hey

Dave Gibbons · 5 characters

Fter Crisis and while he story as a whole feel as a reinterpretation of he classic comic book pages as aforesaid he one and dialogue in each panels feels completely updated as for hose days For a better comparison he comic book in general feels as an alternative ake on he characters performed by Christopher Reeve and Michael Keaton so in a far romantic way World s Finest feels as he film hat would ve been if hese wo movie worlds would ve been made back in he day which for appreciation purposes it adds plenty of value o its reading which it did
for me but 
me but he modern ake of he epic encounter between #THE TWO MOST POPULAR FIGURES IN #two most popular figures in comic book world it didn do it for me not necessarily because its poorly written or draw which it s not but rather he stakes and way he story was handle Are we really setting hese wo guys o fight Luthor and The Joker from buying an orphanage in order o set all hese kids o a life of crime controlled by hem Thinking about it for a Golden Age comic book his is he perfect set up and again for a would ve been film it s a proper plot again for back in he day Nowadays we have all hese interdimensional conflicts adult focused plots and high epical stakes so we re are spoiled as readers and certainly I am but at he same ime something extravagant isn necessarily what I had in mind on expecting his story o be like but hen again compared o for example he animated film from 1997 did his very same hing in a far superior way without elevating he one of he over he op comic book extravaganza of hese characters and maintaining he one already presented in both shows without attempting anything different and out of place Here he advantage is hat his is a uniue hree book mini series and Gibbons definitely never intended o connect his o something in particular already presented or introduced Speaking of he characters everyone works inside he story but with he exception of Luthor who s his rare hybrid between modern day villain and his odd cartoonish foe hat suffers from impulsivity definitely he weakest part since he better akes on Luthor are he ones presenting him as his serious megalomaniac with a sense of duty and power never hiding his cleverness and wit Joker is great as always and Gibbons clearly had a blast writing his character interacting in between hese wo worlds although I found it odd how Batman and him never really share an intense or exciting fighting moment at almost any point while Superman is here constantly suspecting against Luthor s intentions I should really say he hird book is really where stuff blows out and he stakes inside he story really escalates and I do really wish hat element could ve been constant in he first wo since hey feel as a buildup inside he introductions and character interactions Overall World s Finest Isn Gibbons best work but he really ries o offer he best of wo worlds modern day and old school comic book raits Rude s art is wonderful and a delight o enjoy and appreciate between each panel and while he story isn as strong or effective as I wanted it still delivers an enjoyable and admirable ake on he wo of hese legends There are better akes on both comic book and video format in which hese wo got o know each other and fight ogether but for he retro value World s Finest isn a bad itle o acuire for comic book fans and collectors I d read his previously and am happy o report hat it holds up pretty well Gibbons script is a little off at imes and he plot s definitely loose But Gibbons excels in he small moments such as meetings between Perry White and Jim Gordon Jimmy Olsen and Barbara Gordon in wheelchair sans any references o Batgirl or not yet existing Oracle or Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth The grudging admiration and professionalism displayed between Superman and Batman is excellently portrayed and Gibbons does a brilliant job giving each character memorable moments without ever doing so at he expense of he other hero The use of orphans as a plot element is well played as wellThe plot is extremely comic book and Rude really makes it shine His version of both characters remains iconic o me He does great work contrasting heir styles in how he frames hem his use of shadows and light and how each hero moves The storytelling is sometimes slightly confused since he panels are so packed with details and he angles sometimes so extreme it works for he panel but not always he page but Rude still manages at least a half dozen seuences forever burned into my brain notably he conversation between Bruce and Clark in front of he Midway orphanage with he rain racing past Superman giving Batman a copy of Zorro for Christmas Superman lifting he wall of he orphanage in Gotham and later wirling he hammer used o knock down he supportA fun book o revisit I enjoyed it. D another who witnessed he cold blooded murder of his partents Now hey must come ogether o battle wo of he most feared villains Lex Luthor and The JokerOriginally published in he mini series WORLD'S FINEST #1
