Does anyone wish that Marvel and DC would do crossovers again? I know that they stopped doing it awhile back due to some things Quesada said about DC and all but I do wish they would find some way to work out their differences and think about the fans. I personally want Quesada and Didio to personally put their differences aside and let bygones be bygones and not let their egos get in the way of good business.

All they ever do is crossovers!

Oh, you mean with each other? Yeah, I'm dying to see a story where the longterm trademark values of two mega-corporations dictates that the characters in the story experience absolutely no change or growth whatsoever, and that the balance between the characters from each company be meticulously calculated so everyone "looks good." :P

I couldn't think of an idea that'd interest me less really.

Either that or we find out that there can't be a marvel/dc crossover because of:

Seriously though, to answer the OP, not really. I mean there really isn't any difference between a Marvel/DC crossover and a fanfic on the internet. Neither one has any real or lasting consequences on either universe. As Jude pointed out, the whole story is calculated so that no one character looks better than any other character. If DC and Marvel ever had an actual story that featured lasting (albeit temporary) changes to their respective status quos, then yeah, I would read that.

Sadly this all too true.

Although I did truly love Superman knocking out Thor.

You remember when they did the Access crossovers? They created this character, Access, to be co-ownedby both companies, so he could appear in either's books. And they made a big desk out of "when this crossover ends, not every character will be in their own universe!"

You know, saying in interviews and shit that they wanted to see about trading characters, like Daredevil goes to DC and Nightwing goes to Marvel. Man, 1990's/early 2000's me was all kinds of excited about that prospect. This would open untold doors of story possibility, it might be a new era of awesome....



And nothing. I don't think Access has been used since. And thus did Young Simian learn about "bullshit marketing hype".
