World's Finest: Intervention

Chapter One

I received a call at my home about a day ago. At first I thought it my boss, or perhaps one of my sources. I never expected this…

I picked up the phone.

"Clark Kent," I answer.

"Mister Kent, this is Alfred Pennyworth from Wayne Manor," said the voice on the other end of the line.

"Yes Alfred, what can I do for you?"

"He needs you, sir" said Alfred.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"He has an addiction."


An addiction?

That I wasn't expecting.

"I'll be there as soon as I can."

What sort of an addiction?

Whatever Bruce is addicted to I knew one thing was certain: Batman was not quite Batman anymore.

Sure, there was still a man in Gotham City that fought evil. But physically, and mentally this man had changed.

Bruce is the most dangerous man alive.

Any change on his part makes me nervous.

I'm Superman.

I'm not supposed to be nervous.
