Captain America and Batman in JLA/Avengers

This whole mini could have been about Cap and Bats and I would only have loved it more. Here's their first encounter, and when they go hang at the Batcave (and meet Ben Grimm!) :

Okay, so the backstory is the that the Gamemaster and Krona have pitted the JLA and the Avengers against each other to satisfy a bet. After the JLA do some reconnaissance in the 616, the Avengers return the favor and show up in Metropolis. It isn't long before the two teams start doing what most teams do in crossovers: punching first and asking questions later...

Shit just got real.

While the others continue with the game, Batman and Cap slip away. We see them next at the Batcave, where Cap makes an interesting observation....

So much potential for Dead Partner Angst. Wish there could have been more. But moving on....

There needs to be more stories about Batman and Cap riding around on inter-dimensional bikes. I would read a whole series based on that premise.

I'm not ashamed to admit that when I got these issues and saw the posters and potential stories if they had JLA/Avengers crossovers dating back to the 1960s I wept at the possibilities of what could have been.

I'm still waiting for Kurt, Roy Thomas, George Perez and Jerry Ordway to give us JSA/Invaders.
