See, now you're making me wish for a story where Indy had an adventure with the Golden Age Captain America, and I know that it'll never be. *sigh*

I would love an Indiana Jones/Hellboy crossover.

You should look at the strange and twisted history of Death's Head for an idea of Marvel's integration its licenses into its universe. Death's Head started out in Transformers, and they had to do some creative accounting to keep Hasbro from owning from the character. They wanted to bring Death's Head into the Marvel Universe proper; however, Death's Head was Transformer-sized, so a story in Doctor Who Magazine had Death's Head shrunk down to human-size, and then after a series of adventures, the seventh Doctor dropped him off at Four Freedoms Plaza.

On a similar note, I've always wished that DC Comics had done some sort of Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover with Star Trek. That would have been awesome -- Kirk versus the Anti-Monitor!

Re: Comic book questions and other ramblings (Possible Spoilers)

Cap/Indy crossed my mind seconds after I wrote that.

Transformers/Doctor Who/Fanatastic Four. Crazy!!!!

Upon giving it some more thought DC crossed their Universe with licensed products on occasion. I recall an issue of DC Comics Presents featuring Superman and the Masters of the Universe. I think their Captain Action comic took place on Earth-1. Then you have Jerry Lewis and Bob Hope who operated on the comic fringe of the DCU. Thats something you don't see these days. No Adventures of Will Ferrell comics.

Oh and DC has a new book set in a 30s/40s pulp timeframe featuring Doc Savage, Batman, Rima the Jungle Girl and the Spirit.

I would have rather had that than the X-Men/Trek crossovers we got instead...

I actually liked those crossovers (well, the first one at least).

It just launched in the Batman/Doc Savage special, and there's going to be a world built around the pulp heroes.

Is that going to be the "First Wave" line?

Sweet! I just bought that special last week, but I haven't read it yet; I had no idea it was the start of a new Pulp line. Today I am happy.

Re: Comic book questions and other ramblings (Possible Spoilers)

As amazing as this sounds, I have never read a Star Trek comic book. Not one single one. I really only like super powered super hero comics. Star Trek just seemed like it would be too slow or something in the comic.

Yeah I keep an eye on what's going on but I just these comics just don't do it for me. I like my heroes larger than life, not everyday people. I don't like my super-villains saving the planet and being given control of everything. I like my heroes to be heroes, not people with problems doing whatever.

I will take a look at that Jack Staff comic. Ok more questions?
Isn't Christopher Kent suppose to be like a kid or did I miss something. Flamebird is Supergirl's sister? Superboy is back right? And Impulse/Kid Flash became the new Flash and then Barry came back?

As someone already said, DC is definitely too crowded. And does everyone in Marvel now have an illegimate son. Son of Wolverine, Son of Hulk, where is the Son of Captain America? Are they ever going to get rid of Sentry. Oh and when did Quasare become a homosexual woman?

His body ages suddenly and rapidly.

Flamebird is Supergirl's sister?
Adopted sister, in a way.

Superboy is back right?
When Connor died in Infinite Crisis, he was put in the same Kryptonian regeneration chamber that Superman was put in after he died at Doomsday's hands. But because Connor wasn't fully Kryptonian, his cells didn't recharge as quickly. It took a thousand years, and Connor was released from the chamber in the 31st century in Legion of Three Worlds. Whereupon he laid the smack down on Superboy-Prime.

And Impulse/Kid Flash became the new Flash and then Barry came back?
Correct.

Technically, Impulse/Kid Flash became the new Flash, got killed, then Wally came back, then Bart came back, then Barry came back.
