Notes: Unavailing, spread too thin, a saga from the dollar bin, it's chintzy drama, discount lore: a polish-off-the-series chore.

Bit of a "meh" conclusion to the series -- six issues of small adventures of the Earth-2 trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as narrated by a semi-omniscient Lois Lane. Really only of value if you want a sense of completeness. Nicely illustrated in a Kirby-esque stlye.
John Yelverton
This was a very poorly put together re-imagining of the same story told a babillion times, which is probably why the book series got canceled.

Not for me. I just couldn't get into it.

While I'm sad to see the end of the Power Girl/Huntress team-ups, this volume serves a useful purpose in retelling the stories of Superman and Batman in Earth-2, from the perspective of Lois Lane. The differences between Earth-1 and Earth-2 characters is highlighted, and there's a little Forrest Gump-ing of the story, as Wonder Woman gets inserted into the lives of the other two on several occasions as a foil for an Apokolips character I don't recall ever seeing before (Intri). The best parts he ...more

This one is more of an Earth 2 secret origins than a continuation of the worlds finest story line. Kara and Helena are now part of the greater Earth 2 story like so it makes sense that their story ends. I even like this volume it just doesn't fit with the five previous volumes.

It is told from the perspective of Lois Lane. The initial volume of Earth 2 killed off all the familiar heroes and introduced the new wonders. This volume gives some backstory to the heroes that were lost (mostly Superman
An interesting arc on its own, but a complete hijacking of the 'World's Finest' brand.

Seria Worlds' Finest dobiegła końca, szkoda że w takim stylu. I żeby nie było, omawiany tytuł prawdopodobnie nie zasłużył w żadnej mierze na tą ocenę, która widnieje w mojej stopce (powinienem dać 2-2.5/5) to jest sztandarowym przykładem tego czego nie robić, aby nie spaprać całkiem poprawnej serii. Bowiem nie uświadczymy tu ani Kary ani Heleny, za wyjątkiem jakichś śladowych ilości, a cała historia skupi się na początkach... Supermana i Batmana oraz ich dalszej współpracy.

Z tym wyjątkiem, iż ca

Intriguing “Earth 2” take on how DC’s Trinity came together. Evidently in service to an ongoing crossover, but I liked the winks to previous iterations of these characters. The art was consistent and attractive, and Paul Levitz is a living legend. I would have liked to see these characters outside the context of world-ending events, as that would have made me more attached to these particular interpretations.

The best volume of this series?

Of the six volumes of this series, this one is clearly the oddball, but it may also be my favorite. It does a nice job of wrapping things up after Power Girl and Huntress' story in the first five volumes.

It takes us back to Earth-two to tell the story of Superman and Batman. It is narrated by Lois Lane who has become the Red Tornado. I don't want to give too many details, but I thought it was a nice story with a great ending.

Prequel wydarzeń z Ziemi 2 pozwala jeszcze bardziej wczuć się w klimat świata, na który z butami wszedł Darkseid. Liczne próby pozyskania Supermana jako sługi dla mrocznego boga Apokolips tylko wzmagają nieufność. Kal jednak zawsze może liczyć na zaciekłą obronę ze strony najbliższych. Niestety Darkseid jest zawistny i okrutny na tyle, że jeżeli nie może zabrać komuś zabawki, to ją zniszczy.

A 3.5 at times.

Goodbye Earth 2! The closing arc is really material that ties into Earth's End...or whatever it is called.
