Wildstorm's Kherubim are alien Eternals as well.

God, that's dorky that I know that.


So a side effect of the universe merger combines the two and drops it in Kentucky. I still get my crossover.

And do you think Tony Stark would try to buy out Wayne Enterprises?

Batman- You're blood alcohol content is 0.19

Iron- Yeah? Well my repulsors are at 200%

*BLAST*
At which point Batman somehow hack Ironman's armor and shuts it down before he blasts him.

I mean if Spider-Man could do it I think Batman who has more toys should be able to as well.

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

One of the things I think would've been cool is if President Luthor had appointed Norman Osborn as head of SHIELD/HAMMER. In retrospect I wish DC had been thinking more along the Dark Reign lines as fully as Marvel did when Lex became president.

Also, Amanda Waller knocking heads with Luke Cage on a Thunderbolts/Suicide Squad team would be interesting.

A Black Panther-Vixen romance. Or Catman (Secret Six version) v. Black Panther would be pretty cool. As would a Bronze Tiger v. Panther match up.

Bullseye v. Deadshot would be nice. Deathstroke v. Elektra or Lady Shiva v. Elektra could be awesome.

Merging the Doom Patrol with the X-Men probably wouldn't be too hard to do.

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

Well, Batman and Lex Luthor would probably lose their "Smartest Men on Earth" title when they have to co-exist with Reed Richards, Dr Doom, Hank Pym, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, T'Challa, etc.

In fact, I'd like to see Lex Luthor and Dr Doom as arch-rivals.

I'd think Batman would be the one trying to neutralize Stark Industries TBH. He wouldn't like the idea of a loose cannon like Stark producing weapons like the Iron Man suit for anyone. But then after the Obadiah Stane thing he realizes Tony is the better one in charge and lays off.

Stark would go insane when he realizes that the OMACs are based on Extremis tech.

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

I can see Stark and Wayne joining forces once they figure out they're on the same side. Iron Bat armor would be inevitable.

Would Dr. Strange wear the Helmet of Nabu?

Would Quicksilver join the extended family of Flashes and other speedsters, or is he too much of a jerk?

What would happen if you exposed the Atom's dwarf star matter size-changing suit to Pym particles?

Romances: Iceman and Ice? The Human Torch and Fire? The other way around would be tricky...

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

Would Marvel heroes join the Justice League? Or would they continue in their own groups, like the Avengers?

Galactus controlled by Starro, Vandal Savage & Kang team up. The Thing leaves the FF for the Doom Patrol.

Both teams have changed rosters many times, so I'm sure there'd be some intermingling if they coexisted. Although the thing is, they both fill the same basic role in the superheroic ecosystem, as it were -- the all-star team that comes together for the crises too big for any one hero. So if the characters had coexisted all along, I'm not sure we would've had separate Avengers and JL teams, but one team that emerged as an amalgam of the two (pardon the expression). Either that, or one team would dominate as the heavy-hitter roster with folks like Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Green Lantern, and Thor, and the other might be more a second-stringer team akin to the West Coast Avengers or Justice League Europe.

Like I said: Settle the Avengers/JLA thing once and for all.

One battle royale. Winning team gets to be the super group for the new uni. Losing team disbands and joins the winners.

I'm rooting for the Avengers. I hope someday to hear Black Canary cry out "Avengers Assemble!" (Probably hear it in all the alternate universes...)

If the Avengers win and Black Canary has to knuckle under to them, the team had better check her loyalties before letting her cry out anything.

Do Marvel speedsters gain access to the speed force?

Makkari, Northstar, and Aurora, maybe. The others are really pretty slow by comparison. Including Quicksilver.

I'm guessing that a Batman/Howard The Duck team up would not be a high priority for many here.
