World's Finest # 90, September/October, 1957

Here we see the first real instance of the burgeoning "Batman Family" in WF as Batwoman makes an appearance and, guess what? Gets super powers. At least this time they returned to the power pills concept used just a couple of issues before rather than come up with some new excuse. The fun part here is in the 1950's sexist attitudes of the heroes toward a mere WOMAN!

He appreciated her help in the above panel but then purposely plays on her perceived gender-specific weaknesses in the panel below!

GA is starting to get more and more sci-fi.

  1. Countdown to WF 110, the first World's Finest I bought as a child and my introduction to the characters of Batman and Robin. How thrilled I was to learn that they has their own separate series.
