Yep!

Though it probably also helped the status quo of each company was more stable then too. Nowadays things shift around enough and there's enough events it'd be harder to do a big crossover event like that without running into one or the other's events.

I could go for something from a different universe. Imagine a comic of the movieverse versions... meeting... up...

Hm, maybe not, but you get the idea, right?

It would help if Tim Drake didn't share his superhero name with a hamburger restaurant chain. There's a lot of stuff they could do with him.

That deserves to be a running joke; every time he swings into action, mooks should be asking him for burgers and bottomless fry baskets. Like, once an issue, at least.

Hey, compared to Lobo/Wolverine, or Namor/Orca + Gravity While Aquaman Stands Over There, this is scrupulously fair.

I dunno why they didn't just say the symbiote was hypercharged with Kryptonite radiation or something. There was some kind of red sunlight explanation for Spidey kicking Supes around in the first crossover, and everybody was happy.

He almost choked him by stuffing symbiote down his throat, which I thought was the only really fair moment in this thing. Otherwise, Supes should outclass him hard.

I still love when Venom showed up in Quasar and got beat by a bubble in like two pages. Mark Gruenwald liked taking the piss out of people.

"Let's see here, are you vulnerable to being super-shouted at and then set on fire and then flown into space and then ripped in half and then torn into tiny bits and then rammed through the Van Allen Belts at hyperspeed and then frozen and then thrown into the sun?"

"Er...yes?"

"Capital! Only I'll just do the first one because I'm not, haha, a maniac."

Much later, Venom and Carnage compare notes and decide they like DC's Cape Guy better.

For a costume designed in the 90s, Access actually isn't too horrible a design. I'll even forgive the shoulderpads.

Date: 2017-04-23 04:34 am (UTC)
From: [personal profile] silicondream
Although I don't really understand why Axel had a costume. It just appeared on him when he inherited his not-at-all-vast cosmic powers, and it was supposed to reflect the inner needs of his soul or something. But his predecessor looked like a hobo with a cardboard box, so...not every soul demands vinyl and shoulderpads? I dunno.

Spoiler alert his predecessor is a future version of him... one of his powers he hasn't tapped into yet in this mini is time travel. So presumably the other guy could summon the costume too if he wanted.

Access actually figures in to that. The "two brothers" he mentions (the personifications of the DC and Marvel universes) would eventually, temporarily, merge into one and that caused the Amalgam title runs.

It should be shortly after the Marvel/DC War... pretty shortly indeed cause it's explained in Ultimate Access people tend to forget him not too long after he leaves to keep the sanctity of the universes intact.
