Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In the 1970s, World's Finest Comics occasionally featured out-of-continuity tales written by Haney in which Superman and Batman had college-aged sons who wore costumes identical to their fathers' and battled evil as Superman Jr. and Batman Jr. These often hokey and fun stories are collected here. At first, their fathers oppose the supersons' desire to fight crime, but the small fries rebel and begin to prove themselves in action, taking down a crime boss and cleaning up a Central American forced labor camp, among other exploits. At one point, with Batman presumed dead, Bruce Jr. and Dick Grayson (aka Robin) argue over who should succeed him. One odd tale features the sons and their fathers attending an "encounter camp," where long-haired guru Dr. Zamm attempts to bridge the "super-generation gap" between them. But the most bizarre story sees the sons suddenly accusing their fathers of insincere grandstanding and somehow convincing a jury to sentence them to jail for their (imagined) hubris. A 1980 tale by O'Neil contrives a reason for the sons' existence and ends the series-but the sons appeared once more, in a rare 1999 revival that rounds out this collection. Recommended for longtime DC followers.
