Great Scott! It’s a twisted time-travel tale of titanic tenure!
In an attempt to get to the bottom of the mystery of the “demon,” Robin the Boy Wonder and the Supergirl of Krypton venture back in time to China circa 1600 B.C. – running headfirst into the ancient superheroes known as the House of Ji!
Meanwhile, Superman and Batman are losing a race against time to save their fellow superheroes from the schemes of a new villain… one simply known as the Devil Nezha.
ComicBook.comI'd be hard-pressed to think that there is another ongoing book in DC Comics' roster that can come close to what Mark Waid and Dan More are creating with Batman/Superman: World's Finest. The two creators don't just give us the best takes on the Dark Knight and the Man of Tomorrow, but the DC Universe as a whole, as Waid isn't shy about bringing in heroes and villains from across the spectrum. This story is definitely set to go down as a modern day classic and I could not recommend it more if I tried. If you haven't read World's Finest, you're doing yourself a disservice not picking it up.
But Why Tho?Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest #3 is a huge issue with a wealth of content inside. I was not expecting this comic to be so epic in its scale and in regards to the characters that are called upon. The team-ups seem fresh and energised, helped by the jump back in time. The creators are all magnificent at what they do and that is on display within this adventurous series. And each issue can change the course of the whole comic multiple times, so who knows where the next chapter takes us.
Lyles Movie FilesThis title remains a fun ride and the wide-open approach to including more DC characters has kept each issue feeling fresh. Keep this on your short-list of can't miss DC titles.

SciFiPulseFor me personally. The best part of this issue is the sequence where The House of Ji explains how they defeated Nezha the first time. The words for this sequence worked brilliantly with Mora's artwork.

The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Waid crafts an entertaining story that is filled with great action and mystery. The story does a great job of nailing the relationship between the two characters and I like the continued conflict between Supergirl and Robin. The Doom Patrol moments are great and everything in the story comes to an interesting and unexpected twist I wasn’t expecting, but am curious to see play out. The Art: Dan Mora has a wonderful eye for both character and action. The character designs are fantastic. The action is thrilling and the world of the story is beautifully detailed.
Geek DadMark Waid continues to prove right out of the gate why he's a legend of DC even without writing for them for more than a decade.
Weird Science DC ComicsBatman / Superman: World's Finest #3 has everything you'll ever want in a DC team comic (and more) with fantastic art, non-stop story progress, cameos galore, and a shocking last-page twist. Waid expertly gives you a ton of exposition but rewards you by giving you incredible battles first. Mora's art is beyond reproach. This story is a little too busy at times with the sheer volume of cameos and references it tries to stuff in.
Dark Knight NewsI had fun reading this book. Mind you, I still don't understand who Devil Nezha is, but I couldn't care less. I was too distracted by Waid rapidly bombarding me with new plot points and Mora's utterly stunning artwork. At this point, I'm assuming that Waid has an ace up his sleeve, but until he's ready to reveal his hand, I'm happy to be carried along by the spectacle of it all.
AIPTA significant issue that keeps the momentum going on this fresh, exciting take on the World's Finest and other characters in the DCU while introducing new ones. Mark Waid and Dan Mora continue the summer blockbuster by adding more drama, action, and catastrophe for Superman and Batman to face, proving why they are indeed the World's Finest!
Comic WatchBATMAN/SUPERMAN: WORLDS FINEST #3 is fantastic fun with a creative team that lives up to the books name. Get your Batman and Superman fix all in one place!
The Batman UniverseBatman/Superman: World's Finest #3 is best-described as a theme park thrill ride that takes readers on a tour of the DC Universe, and it totally works.
Comic Book RevolutionBatman/Superman: World's Finest #3 is a lot of fun. Mark Waid captures the unique voices of each character that is involved in this storyline. Which is all elevated by the wonderful artwork being done by Dan Mora as this is one of the best, if not the best, looking comic books on the market. This is certainly a comic book that DC Comics fans should all be picking up right now.
Batman-NewsBatman/Superman: World's Finest #3 is definitely a fun comic, but I think that the creative team is trying to do too much with a limited page count. I think the exposition could be greatly reduced if the content was reduced, so that the possibility for a more focused and tighter narrative arises. That said, this book is action-packed and the artwork is simply incredible. Despite its flaws, I think that fans of these characters will be entertained for sure!
