cyberghostface: (Batman & Robin)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

This is actually the second time Batman and Spider-Man met, but this one stands on its own. It's a great story and a lot of it probably has to do with J.M. DeMatteis whose proven in the past that he knows how to handle both Spider-Man and Batman. it's a shame that there haven't been any more Batman/Spider-Man stories after this as I feel that there's a lot of potential.

Also the original one-shot was about 51 pages.

Long story short, Ra's al Ghul wants to do business with the Kingpin, so you know both Spidey and Bats have an interest in what's going on.

Kingpin turns down Ra's (who is acting through his daughter Talia) offer because he doesn't want to be involved with a terrorist organization. Vanessa Fisk, his wife, soon becomes sick.

Ra's plan is to start an earthquake that will sink Manhattan Island, the first of many natural disasters that will strike the globe. In the chaos, Ra's will emerge to offer an solitude and redemption to the world. Kingpin scoffs at her offer and tells her that any act against New York will be considered by him to be an act of war. Before she leaves, she tells Fisk that Ra's can cure his wife's cancer.

Later, concerned about his wife's wellbeing, the Kingpin decides to accept Ra's offer.

Ra's tells Fisk that they are petty annoyances beneath them, and has some of his thugs deal with them while they go on to more pressing matters. By the time Spider-Man and Batman are done, Kingpin and Ra's have escaped.

Spider-Man is knocked out in the ensuing avalanche and Batman brings him to the safety of a nearby cave.

Ra's tells Fisk that when the world is his, he will need men of like minds to administer his judgements. He tells Fisk that if he becomes his disciple, the world will be his.

Kingpin accepts his offer.

Ra's accuses Batman of getting to Talia through him, but she had nothing to do with it.

Batman offers to bring Talia back with him, but she tells him that she is by his father's side because she chooses to be.

Back in New York, Kingpin is able to elude the law by giving interpol information on Ra's. When the hideout is found, however, Ra's and Talia are missing.

That actually made my feel sympathy for Kingpin. I think this is a first.

Except for the Ultimate version of Kingpin. Guy wants his guys to blow up a school 'cause Spider-Man told him fat jokes. Tsk.

It's easy to do when the story is centered on him and Vanessa.

Not even in that Brubaker story where Fisk quits being a criminal and lives a normal life in a quiet European village and falls in love with a woman and her little children?

Oooh, this was actually nice. Great story! I think DC and Marvel should do crossovers more often. :)

Also did anyone else think Spidey and Nightwing would make great friends? That was all I could think of as I kept reading this story. XD

I think they would go along perfectly as friends too, wise cracks and all. <3

It could be fun. Though I just thought of it being nice if Spider-Man ever met Cassandra Cain. He'd be her wisecracking Uncle. I mean she gravitates towards them as seen with Steph and Kon.

The fancomic where he becomes friends with an older, slightly bitter Azula was kind of fun. It's from the series where the Avatar and Marvel universes merge and Doom and Azula have a kid.

Do you happen to know where I can find it? I saw it a long time ago at the original sd and I'd love to see it again!

I think Dick's love of red heads would come between them.

Peter: Are good-looking, intelligent, funny, athletic guys with great asses inherently attracted to redheads, or are redhead inherently attracted to good-looking, intelligent, funny, athletic guys with great asses?
Dick: Good question. I think the answer is "yes."

Oh great. Now I can't get it out of my head of the chick that played Jordan on Scrubs playing the part of Vanessa.

Some great characterisations here, plus plausible duplicity on everyone's (except Spider-Man's of course) )part

Thanks for posting.

And I LOVE that Kingpin is drawn precisely on Romita's model.

Well, since no-one has jumped to the shallow end of the pool yet, I will:

That last panel on the second page doesn't look like it has to finish with a handshake.

Batman (looking at Spidermans crotch) ; I'll handle this.
Spiderman; Oh No, you don't.

Some days I wonder why I even bother trying to drag my mind out of the gutter, it'll just slide back in there again... ;)

A funny niggle...

I love this story, I really do... but I laughed when I saw Spidey rip off the fake face mask... and showed his mask underneath. There had to be some fancy make up to cover that...

Another thing about JM DeMatteis: turns out he reads this site on a regular basis. Just thought you should know.

I actually think this is a surprisingly good story, as cheesy as a Batman/Spiderman teamup sounds. It goes a good job of showcasing Ra's' cult-leader personality.

And you know, Talia's just fabulous. As always.
