World's Finest # 152, September, 1965

A fun little story ruined a bit by the fact that the Part 2 splash gives away the Big Reveal before the story itself does!

The surprise story is replaced by the Editor's Round Table. Now this idea certainly had the potential for greatness but it starts off poorly with a sub-standard 1956 story purported to be the favorite of the nameless editor of TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED. Since the credited editor at that time had been Whitney Ellsworth and Ellsworth was well into his Hollywood years, we have no idea who it actually was…or who chose this story. There would be some good choices to come but for the most part, the Editors' Round Table was the worst kind of filler. Why they just didn't do a  book length Batman/Superman tale I'll never understand.
