World’s Finest 72 – Superman and Batman in Fort Crime

The second Superman/Batman team-up, by Schwartz, Swan and Kaye, puts the heroes into action from the get go.  Even the cover of World’s Finest 72 (Sept/Oct 54) directly relates to the story.

The story has Superman and Batman each pursuing the same gang.  Two get caught, but break free and take Clark Kent and Lois Lane hostage.  They head to a convenient castle just outside Metropolis, and Batman leads the siege.

It’s an effective scenario.  Clark has to use his powers without giving away his identity, while Batman and Robin get medieval battlements to jump around on.
