Double Your Fun

One of the great things about superhero role-playing games is that you can do things that would never be done in comics. If you want Spider-man to grow old and retire, you can do it. If you want Batman to take on a young blind kid named Matt Murdock as the new Robin, you can do it. Any number of cross company (or even cross-media) crossovers you can do it.

Unfortunately, other than a few cross-company crossovers, there aren’t too many comic images to inspire the imagination in that regard. Or at least there weren't.

The blog Marvel Two-in-One...The Lost Issues! (previously Brave and the Bold...The Lost Issues!) features covers than never were for those two famous team-up titles. Here’s some examples:





So head over and check 'em out!

That Bat-man / Thing is awesome. 1962- Yeah!!

You rock. Do you know how many people I'll be showing this to today?

In the Batman/Ironman crossover did they argue incessantly about which one of them got to use the rad gadgets?

Trey said...

@Meowlissa - I was suspicious I might rock, but in this case I have to give credit to the artist. There's even more goodness on his blog. :)

@CKutalik - Could be. Maybe Stark became convinced that Batman stole his technology a la Iron Wars?

Don't forget about the Amalgam comics released in the late 90s. Where not only did heroes teaam up in a cross-company match up but the characters were merged in to one to create new heroes and villains. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Amalgam_Comics_publications

Have fun, B. Lynn.

I was wondering what happened to that blog! Thanks for this update! Awesomeness Trey!

Harald said...

Seriously!? How dense do you have to be to pick a fight with Jonah Hex and Thing? I see a nasty whoppin' in those guys' future.

Trey said...

@Justin - You're Welcome.

@Jay - That's a good one. The Thing gets around.

@Harald - Obviously, its some dude desiring a beat-down.
