...and remember that the World's Finest isn't two people, it's three.

The first time Superman met Batman, Batman was in full on "early days lone avenger" mode, terrifying everyone who saw him, whether they needed to be scared or not.

The second time though..

WORLD'S FINEST was a ten issue miniseries that covered Batman and Superman's friendship over ten years in the post-Crisis post-Zero Hour DC Universe. For most of that decade, they thought their refusal to work together resulted in an innocent man dying. They find out they were wrong.

"I rarely do art commissions. For the simple reason that I have too many projects to do and don’t have free time to devote to commissions. However, I do take a commission or two, usually for a friend or art collectors that I know and trust – In this case, Hawaiian Dave.

Now Hawaiian Dave is a huge Batman-Superman fan, and to my knowledge, has one of the largest collection of Batman-Superman art.

Over the years, I got to know Hawaiian Dave fairly well and his art collection. And over the years, he tried to commission me to do a nice Batman-Superman piece to add to his collection. However, over the years, I resisted his offer – for the plain reason of I hate Superman. I think Superman is a boring and moronically simple character. From his Kryptonite weakness to his silly disguise with the eyeglasses, Superman is an ill-conceived character. Just because he’s the first superhero doesn’t mean he’s a good character. And don’t get me started on him crying on every other comic book cover.

One day the impossible happened, I was bored and I had some free time and Hawaiian Dave gave me a big wad of cash. On top of that, he told me that I can draw whatever I desire as long as Batman and Superman is in it… Since I hated Superman so much, the only logical conclusion was to do the scene in the Frank Miller’s masterpiece “The Dark Knight Returns” where the old Batman comes out of retirement and beat the shit out of Superman. And off I went.

This simple pin-up morphed into an elaborate pin-up which then turned into a 2 page sequential action scene complete with dialogues. To tell you the truth, I had a great time drawing this. But I can honestly say that this will probably will be the last Superman art I draw.

I really hate Superman."

Zack Snyder: I perceive it as him not killing directly, but if the bad guy’s are associated with a thing that happens to blow up, he would say that that’s not really my problem.

A little more like manslaughter than murder, although I would say that in the Frank Miller comic book that I reference, he kills all the time. There’s a scene from the graphic novel where he busts through a wall, takes the guy’s machine gun…I took that little vignette from a scene in The Dark Knight Returns, and at the end of that, he shoots the guy right between the eyes with the machine gun.

 So I went to see Batman v Superman, and I thought that it was… OK. It’s not the great disaster that so many seem to be proclaiming it to be (though it has a number of issues), it’s just an okay superhero film. Admittedly it’s a touch maudlin in places, but considering the subject matter,  it’s not really surprising. The score’s great, the action is great, the acting is fine for the most part, and even the hints at the upcoming JL movie seemed to fit into the story without derailing the main plot. I particularly liked Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman (definitely one of the highlights of the movie) and I look forward to her own movie.

Personally I'd recommend just going to see it to make up your own mind about it. I thought that it was far better than Man of Steel (even attempting to directly fix some of the issues with that movie), but it's a very different animal to the MCU movies. For one thing, people take what's going on seriously without the flippancy a lot of the Marvel films to indulge in (seriously Ultron, if you're not going to take your own plot to kill humanity seriously why should we?).

There ARE problems though, which could have been fixed with another couple of drafts of the script and maybe getting Zack Snyder to tone down some of the performances (like Luthor's).
