I don’t usually like to do the “hero versus hero” fights but with convention season preparations taking up my time and mind I have to grab what fight I can and call it good. So Marvel Vs. DC it is.
I’m disappointed that Kurt Busiek ignored the events of this story for his otherwise fantastic JLA/Avengers miniseries as I always liked this. Sure it’s the ultimate fanboy argument given form but who cares? It was fun and Peter David was able to sneak in some decent character moments for the group. So I’m happy with that. Especially when you get awesome fights like the one between Marvel’s God Of Thunder and DC’s Mightiest Mortal.
“Mosquito” round 7
The Battlefield: Marvel Versus DC #2 (Marvel/DC; 1996)
The Promoters: Peter David (writer) Claudio Castellini & Dan Jurgens (pencilers), Paul Neary & Josef Rubinstein (inkers), Gregory Wright (colorist) and Bill Oakley (letterer)
I don’t have time to go into the full backstory here. Just know that the heroes of the Marvel & DC universes are battling to make sure theirs isn’t the universe wiped out, and that you don’t have to kill the other person, just immobilize him/her for a brief time to be declared the winner. I do like how Thor and Captain Marvel (the REAL Captain Marvel) meet.
A few pages later, the battle begins.
But you can’t say that Thor isn’t willing to let a foe give up. Too bad the one thing the New 52 gets right about Billy is his stubbornness.
But that plan appears to back fire on the good Captain.
But while Thor may not have the wisdom of Solomon he’s no fool.
And a point was won for the Marvel Universe. I don’t remember if there was a decisive winner because Access sort of rigged the game to a draw. And his hammer? Ended up in the hands of Wonder Woman. How do you like them golden apples?
