    Emerge

    Definition 1a for "emerge" of this dictionary reads:


    "to become known or apparent"


    Definition 3 reads:

    "used to indicate the usually good state or condition of someone or something at the end of an event, process, etc. "


    Both definitions seem to fit the following:


    "Two new superpowers emerged from the Second World War."


    What do native speakers think?

    Re: Emerge

    I think 1b fits your sentence better.
