    Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest continues to give us a story in the classic style of these heroes. I loved the moment when Boy Thunder talks to Superman about how he blames himself for the death of his parents and the destruction of the planet. I also liked the bit where Aqualad Challenges Boy Thunder over his use of excessive force when dealing with a crook. Overall. I can’t wait to see where this story goes when the next issue is released next month.

    You know what the best part of this story is? (And this is something you will really never here me find positive!) It’s the lack of continuity. Now, an arguement can be made that DC pitched continuity out the window eons ago. But Dc never really “threw” continuity out but rather tried to rewrite it with ever update. Whether it was the 5 year plan of the New 52 or the multi-dimensional merging plan from Crisis. But Mark Waid and Dan Mora seem to be channelling the Bob Haney/Jim Aparo team from the 1970’s Brave and the Bold where anything goes. Joker cuts off Angle Man’s hand? Sure, why not. Boy Thunder’s costume being from a 1968 World’s Finest story (#178)? Gotta love those nostalgic flashbacks. We have a Silver Age Teen Titans guesting with a version of the villianous Key from the 1997 JLA comic? And while I can point out each and everyone of these continuity issues, it still doesn’t stop me from enjoying this story.
