Since childhood we would have these ideas of 2 or more characters from different worlds meeting up with each other to fight or team up with each other. From Godzilla vs Power Rangers, to transformers vs gundams we've had these ideas. Now most of the time we've seen these crossovers in comics, mainly because it's a lot cheaper then producing the actual product as a movie or television series so naturally the world of comics is FLOODED with them. Some are good and some are bad. Some are famous, while others are obescure. So let's discuss crossovers and tell us some of your favorites ones. I would like to see ideas for crossovers as well, but to make it interesting let's hear why you think these characters/world should meet this said characters/world and how you would think it would work.
Now one of the most famous ones was originally going to be a movie. Yes, Spider-man and Superman were going to crossover in the world of cinema first but the idea got cancelled because of the live action Superman film being made, so instead we got this legendary comic.
It's a fun book but the team up could of been a little better, but it worked for it's time. Obviously Spider-man and Superman don't exist in the same universe and this idea has been explored in future crossovers one of which is technically canon if you look deep into it even though they say it isn't.
We've also got this crossover which I feel has been overlooked
Granted it's been collected into trade and junk but usually I don't hear a lot about this one and I actually enjoyed it more then the other one. I like it how they used Parasite and Dr. Doom as a team, even though it seems random but what I like a lot about this issue is that we get Superman vs Hulk... Course this is Pre-Crisis Superman taking on your ordinary angry hulk so natually Hulk did deliver some good blows to supes until he managed to stand up to it and pretty much own him with a few hits. Pre-Crisis Superman everybody, so Godmodded that not even the hulk can take him down.
Now I want to talk about this one crossover I just read, that in no way shape or form should work but manages to have a great story. I'm talking about Robocop vs Terminator.
I love Walter Simonson's cover of it and the art of his just kicks ass and this will be the first time I'll say something about the colorists. GOOD skreeonk JOB, my God do I love the colors on the terminators and robocop. Rachelle Menashe and Steve Oliff, I commend you and now I want to find more of Dark Horse's Terminator stuff regardless of it sucking or not. Basically the plot is Robocop is the reason why skynet went all crazy and killed everyone and now they have to stop everything from happening and junk. It's written by Frank Miller before his "Crazy days", so it's great and fun fact: Miller helped write the script for Robocop 2 and his original script was also translated into a comic book. The book is an absolute blast but it's one of the weirdest species of graphic novel I have ever seen. It's got adds and paper cuts out stuff, but then again this is an OLD graphic novel I managed to find at my library. If they ever bring it back into print, you HAVE to check it out if you are a terminator or Robocop fan.
And that's about it folk, so tell us your stories about you and crossovers.
