Rediscovering the real World’s Finest

Look, I love Superman. Really — he’s one of my favorite superheroes, and embodies everything good and noble about the concept. He’s a truly aspirational character.

And I used to live for the World’s Finest, deservedly recognized as maybe the greatest team-up in comicsdom. What’s not to love about Superman and Batman joining forces to defeat the bad guys?

But … can we all just admit now that Batman and Plastic Man make the greatest partners ever?!


These guys bro so hard, Plastic Man is still trying to high-five himself.
