Superman: Secret Files 2009

In many ways this is a throw-away story in "Superman/Batman," but it's so fun and so gorgeous that you'll find yourself enthralled none the less.

Superman/Batman #60

Yet another universal mash-up occurs in this title, except that's the title of the issue. This one takes the Titans and the Justice League and offers some interesting new characters and concepts.

Otto Binder and Al Plastino's introduction of the Legion of Super-Heroes is still charming, although "Superman" readers might be more excited by the back-up feature.
