Crossovers you'd like to see

Post by Hourglass on Thu Jan 28, 2010 8:46 pm

What cross overs would you absolutely love to see?

I'm hoping one day for a cross over between Spiderman and Batman, due to the simularities behind the origins stories (family member killed, seek revenge), and I can see Parker and Wayne being quite interesting together.

Actually, there has already been one! Marvel and DC went through a phase of crossovers in the 90s, including a Batman/Spidey crossover in 1997 which pitted them against the Kingpin and Ra's al Ghul. It was written by JM DeMatteis, and drawn by Graham Nolan and Karl Kesel. Batman has also teamed up with Daredevil (Kingpin was in that one, too), Captain America and the Punisher-though my personal favourite inter-company crossover has to be The Punisher and Archie! This oddity, drawn by John Buscema (the Punisher) and Stan Goldberg (all the Archie characters) came out in 1994 and saw Marvel's murderous vigilante head to Riverdale in pursuit of a drug dealer who looked exactly like the squeaky clean Mr Andrews...

I would love a `Cloak` I. Spy` crossover! I. Spy could tackle `Deathshead` and `Warlock` (two top `Cloak` villians) and Cloaky is left with `Mr X` and `Mastermind`

Now that's an inter-company crossover I've never heard before-though it is a natural. Very Happy

I'd love to see it! I. Spy might have trouble combatting Warlocks `spells` and the Cloak would certainly be troubled by Masterminds invincible Matic-men! I always wondered about a Cloak-I.Spy team-up! Be quite interesting I reckon.

I'm currently working my way through series three of Wonder Woman on DVD. God, that woman had amazing legs!

Not that that's why I'm watching it, of course...

I'll inevitably say Sexton Blake and Sherlock Holmes, imagine it, the villain runs away, Blake gives chase on a bicycle, jumping over things, knocking down boxes etc etc - eventually he arrives, breathless, at the crook's hide out to find Holmes already there - he had instead of going off on a mad chase worked out the address from clues XD.

Hmm, the world's number one Sexton Blake fan wants to see the old boy humiliated by Holmes? I'm surprised at you, Mike. Though I certainly would like to see it. Pretty much any Holmes crossover is a good one to my mind-though my dream crossover, Holmes and Batman, has already been done!

Not humiliated as such, just them working together in thier own ways. No amount of horse-drawn hansom cabs (which holmes always used even into the 20th century) could catch villains escaping by aeroplane, but The Grey Panther could! (well the original one anyway).

Have you seen "Sherlock Holmes and the Hentazu Affair", it crosses him over with the Prisoner of Zenda (which is actually still on my to read list XD).

No-that, I suspect, is one I shall have to track down. Sounds interesting...

Given what happened to the Black Knight's own squire, if I were Mr. Sheldrake, I wouldn't let Beryl anywhere near him.

Tricky. In a physical contest, I'd back Nemesis, though it would be a close thing. But I suspect John would outwit the other two without lifting a finger.

Will Magnus's finest would be reduced to scrap in minutes. But imagine if Will managed to sneak the Metal Men's responsometers into the Warriors? Gold in control of Hammerstein, Tin controlling Blackblood, and of course, Tina as Joe Pineapples. She'd like his wardrobe...

But, y'know, "Crossover" doesn't always mean "fight".

Actually, no. Man-Thing first appeared in May 1971 in Savage Tales #1. Swamp Thing first appeared in Swamp Thing #1 in November 1972 (though a prototype version had appeared in July 1971 in House of Secrets #92). But ultimately, both characters were dervived from an earlier character, Hillman Comics The Heap, who dates back to December 1942.

Only seemed fair to go with Marvel's version so I could also throw in a DC character, and my first thought for DC was

but I then thought Ral Benem would be more fun.

It was a four-issue series through Quality / Fleetway here in the states.

The Claw had a lengthy run in Britain, in titles like Valiant and Vulcan. I'm not sure how much of that run the Quality series reprinted. Did you get to see his short lived costumed hero phase?
