In the end, Batman uses a exploding Batarang to knock Intri back into the boomtube and we find out that Batman showed up not just because he was in the neighborhood, but because he found out the trap that was set for his family was perpetrated by Sloan. Too bad that Sloan took the opportunity to escape while Batman was fighting Intri because I'd love to see how that discussion would go down. As we close this issue we see Sloan running tests on Val-Zod, hopefully nothing that he did between this and the time that our heroes find Val-Zod comes back to haunt us.
That's it for this issue of Worlds' Finest and I'm pleased to say that I didn't hate this issue. From what we've been given in the past, this issue could actually be considered good. I would of liked to see more of Sloan and how our heroes interacted with him before he betrayed everyone during the Apokolips invasion, but I'm not going to dwell on it. Now I know that these issues are supposed to be a record of the events that led up to the invasion but I wish we could see more of the interactions between the Wayne Family. That's the highlight of the book for me and I think it could do with a little more of it instead of the many times that Intri tried to get Superman to Apokolips......That's just me though. Even the art this issue seemed to be a step above what we've been given before or maybe I could actually get behind it because the story didn't bend me out of shape this issue, but I enjoyed Jed Dougherty's take on these characters. See you next month where we'll see when Intri came back to Earth again.
Bits and Pieces:
This issue is by far the best we've been given by since Worlds' Finest made the switch from Power Girl and Huntress to Superman and Batman. Maybe it's because as each issue progresses we get farther ahead in time and the heroes here are the ones that I imagine them to be, but whatever it is, I hope that we can close out the series with our characters coming off the way they did here. Again, I don't know why the issue works better this month, it just does and I'll go with it.
