The issue opens up by re-introducing Mal Duncan to readers as he tags along with Donna, Garth, and Karen to explore the city. Mark Waid has shown time and time again how intricate an understanding of the DC Universe he has, but with this series comes a specific focus on the Titans and their history, Mal is seamlessly interwoven into the story while planting the seeds for the future.

The story itself is relatively simple, making it easy to follow. New readers are sure to find it interesting to learn more about the original Teen Titans roster and what their dynamics are like. Similarly, longtime readers may find solace in knowing how rhythmically Waid connects each character. The Titans are still early in their careers as teammates, and some of the growing pains depicted are important to understand how these heroes became the icons we know today. Through all of this, there is a strong message delivered in the story that perfectly depicts what the Teen Titans are all about identity. Without going too deep into this, the delivery is seamless and can remind readers how the Teen Titans can translate a fun comic book into a relatable story to reassure its readers they are never alone.

Emanuela Lupacchino continues to deliver spectacular art in the second issue of the series. The characters’ emotions are expressed through both silliness and subtleties in their facial expressions and body language. Jordie Bellaire is the perfect colorist for the series and brings bright colors to the story that fits the Titans well. Overall, the art in this issue is top-notch.

The second issue, World’s Finest: Teen Titans #2 continues to show why this series came at the right time. The mini-series hits on all the right notes of a great Teen Titans story. So far, it seems each issue seems to be a one-off that has its own plot, allowing the series to remain engaging by being a low-investment concept that has been very entertaining. World’s Finest: Teen Titans #2 is a great continuation that ends with an exciting premise for the halfway point in the series.
