Batman/Superman by Greg Pak & Jae Lee

Posted by Grey Sunday, June 30, 2013

Together for the first time (again) in The New 52, witness the first fateful meeting of the World's Finest in the recently-released Greg Pak and Jae Lee's Batman/Superman #1. 


The adventures of the World's Finest have been a source of great story-telling in comic history. The respective iconic statuses of both Batman and Superman, as well as the obvious contrast in their personality, have been the main elements behind the ever-popular team-up. 

Personally, the first-ever fateful meeting between the World's Finest written by John Byrne in his much-lauded 1986 relaunch of Superman in the six-issue limited series, The Man of Steel, pretty much summed up the incredible chemistry and dynamics between the duo. In issue #3, Superman attempted to apprehend Batman upon their first chance meeting when he regards him as an outlaw vigilante. Once again demonstrating why he is always the most clever person in the room, Batman was actually prepared for the coming of Superman after reading his exploits months ago in the Daily Planet. Warning Superman that if he come anywhere near him a signal will be activated to trigger a bomb that will kill an innocent Gothamite. It was only until the very end that Batman reveals to Superman that the endangered Gothamite is himself. A classic story that effortlessly demonstrates the heroics of both superhero icons.

In the recently-released Greg Pak and Jae Lee's Batman/Superman #1, we will have another take of the first fateful meeting of the World's Finest in the New 52 continuity. With Jae Lee on board, we have absolutely no doubt that if all else fails, we have some astonishing art to depend on with this one.
