Here’s my version of the World’s Finest team: Batman & Superman. Here’s what they would be if given free reign.
I always thought that Batman and Superman worked best during the era they came from–the 40’s. That was a time when evil was more concrete and defeat-able. I think part of the problem with setting their stories in our time is that true evil these days can’t be defeated with fists, gadgets, and superpowers. I tried to take them back to that time while also giving them–instead of funky leotards–outfits of the time period that they would more realistically wear. Batman’s outfit is basically a bat-cloaked motorcycle patrolman while Superman is an all-american football star. By re-imagining them in this way I still retain their essential core while making them seem like they could actually arise organically from the times they lived in.
