    A bunch of smaller stories that were fun but nothing earth shattering. Batman and Superman against General Zod, Ra's al Ghul, Atomic Skull, Ultra-Humanite, a Braniac virus, Bat-Myte, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and Solomon Grundy. There were quite a few artists, but the art maintained a high level throughout the book. A bunch of smaller stories that were fun but nothing earth shattering.

    Batman/Superman Vol. 2 World's Deadliest collects issues 7-15 and Annual 1 written by Joshua Williamson and art by Nick Derington, Clayton Henry, Max Raynor, Gleb Melnikov, Dale Eaglesham, and Andrei Bressan. Batman and Superman battle a collection of adversaries over a series of arcs including Ra's al Ghul, General Zod, Atomic Skull, Ultra-Humanite, a Brainiac virus, Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and Solomon Grundy. My favorite arc dealt with Atomic Skull/Ultra-Humanite.

My favorite arc dealt with Atomic Skull/Ultra-Humanite. The annual with Bat-Mite and Mxyzptlk was a ton of fun with two arguing which superhero would win a fight so they created scenarios to have the two battle. I'm not a big General Zod fan (or Khandor which the story revolved around). I'm actually not a big fan on any other surviving Kryptonians. They always make it so important that Superman is so isolated because he the last of his race but we also have Supergirl, Zod, Krypto, Jor-El, everyone in the Phantom Zone, and the whole city of Khandor who also survived. Still, overall these arcs were fun and solid art throughout.

    Batman/Superman: World's Deadliest continues where the previous trade paperback left off collecting nine issues (Batman/Superman #7–15) of the 2019 on-going series with Batman/Superman Annual #1 and collects five stories: "The Kandor Compromise", "Atomic", "Planet Brainiac", "Snow Fight", and "Freestyle Imp: Batman versus Superman".

"The Kandor Compromise" is a two-issue storyline (Batman/Superman #7–8) has General Zod returning to Earth on a mission to revive the Bottle City of Kandor and would not let anyone stand in his way – including Ra's al Ghul. Unfortunately, Bruce Wayne as Batman and Clark Kent as Superman are caught in the middle. "Atomic" is a three-issue storyline (Batman/Superman #9–11) has Bruce Wayne as Batman and Clark Kent as Superman teaming up to solve a mystery surrounding Atomic Skull and Ultra-Humanite. "Planet Brainiac" is a three-issue storyline (Batman/Superman #12–14) has Bruce Wayne as Batman and Clark Kent as Superman teaming up to prevent the Brainiac Virus from spreading with supporting cameos from Batwoman and Steel. While "Snow Fight" is a one-issue storyline (Batman/Superman #15) has the duo teaming up and going against the Secret Society of Villains with supporting cameos from Solomon Grundy and Swamp Thing. "Freestyle Imp Battle: Batman versus Superman" is a one-issue storyline (Batman/Superman Annual #1) has Bat-Mite and Mister Mxyzptlk having the aged-old debate of who is better – Batman or Superman with the heroes caught up in the middle of their impish insanity. Joshua Williamson penned the entire trade paperback. For the most part, it is written moderately well. Williamson penned five relatively short stories that have the World's Finest encountering various villains and needed to team-up to defeat or null the evil. Some stories fair better than others, but as a collection as a whole it was satisfactory. Clayton Henry (Batman/Superman #9–11 and Annual #1), Max Raynor (Batman/Superman #12–14), Nick Derington (Batman/Superman #7–8), Andrei Bressan (Batman/Superman #15), Gleb Melnikov, and Dale Eaglesham (Batman/Superman Annual #1) penciled the trade paperback. For the most part, the penciling styles are rather distinct, which makes the artistic flow rather turbulent. However, each story has one penciler attached to it, which mitigates the artistic flow somewhat. All in all, Batman/Superman: World's Deadliest is a satisfactory continuation to what would hopefully be a wonderful series.

    Random stories, none of which continue the tale from the first collection. So I guess I’d have to track down a bunch of other books to find out what happened with the Batman Who Laughs (stupidest villain name ever) and his infecting heroes to kill the entire planet. I’m not going to do that. Really, “The Batman Who Laughs” is a terrible name. And that’s in a world where the Condiment King exists.

    Very Enjoyable tales that use the strength of both heroes. They’re very light and fun in tone which is great. Good art and solid character writing.

    After a first book that was all abotu battling the Batman who Laughs and setting upe vents and character changes in DC books, this feels like a proper Batman/Superman with several story arcs worked in to the nine issues plus an annual collected here: The Kandor Comrpomise (7,8): While the bottled city of Kandor appeared to be lost in the Man of Steel mini-series, Zod has plan to revive them but it leads him into conflict with Ra's Al ghul while threatening his truce with the House of El. A solid After a first book that was all abotu battling the Batman who Laughs and setting upe vents and character changes in DC books, this feels like a proper Batman/Superman with several story arcs worked in to the nine issues plus an annual collected here: The Kandor Comrpomise (7,8): While the bottled city of Kandor appeared to be lost in the Man of Steel mini-series, Zod has plan to revive them but it leads him into conflict with Ra's Al ghul while threatening his truce with the House of El. A solid tale that sets the stage for changes to the Status Quo in Superman's world. Atomic (9-11): A mystery involving Atomic Skull's mysterious death and raises bigger problems with a long-time Superman foe. This makes good use of Batman's detective skills. Planet Brainiac (12-14): Superman and Batman are trapped on the moon and it's up to Steel and Batwoman to free them, whether Batman and Superman want them to or not. Annual #1: Batmite and Mister Mxyzptlk get into an argument over who's better: Batman or Superman. Snowfight (#15): Solomon Grundy is about to blow up and Batman and Superman to figure out how to get him home to avoid the fate without setting him off. This is probably my favorite story in the books and turns poignant at the end with a suprise guest star. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. This is what a Batman/Superman book should be. It's fun with a couple important stories. It makes for a very pleasant and enjoyable read.

    3.5 rounded down. This series went from being focused on The Batman who Laughs vs the two heroes, to now just them versus whoever from their rogues gallery. The volume contains a bunch of mini-arcs, none of which are particularly bad or good. But since they are self-contained, we do not get the bombastic feeling of the first volume.
