Read Superman VS Thor Comics
DC v. Marvel Comics #1, #4/ Marvel Comics v. DC #2, #3 (April-May 1996)
This was one of those events that happened as I was a youngster reading comics, and my cousins and I were jazzed for it. There were mail-in cards where you could vote on the big 5 matchups pitting Marvel and DC’s heaviest hitters against each other: Superman vs the Hulk, Wolverine v. Lobo, it was, for us, the most exciting concept ever. So, we voted, and followed the storyline as it unfolded and was generally pretty happy. But, this is not a comic book that stayed with me; I owned the individual issues but never revisited them….until now. Sometimes, there are just comics everyone should read, for historical purposes, for the debut of a legendary character, stories that pushed the envelope in one direction or another, and sometimes just because they are so strange and “bad” they have to be read. After cracking the spines on those dusty issues, for my palette, this book goes into that last pile.
First, to pull this off, they needed a plot to tie these two worlds together. What we get is hanging by loose thread; two normal people (one being a bum, the other a teenager) possess a hidden strength to keep these two separate worlds from each other, and now the world has been thrown into turmoil, as the worlds are crossing. This will lead to an explosion the likes of which had never been seen before until nothing remains. So, two cosmically and spiritual powered beings from both universes, have deemed that a series of champions from each universe must do battle and the one winning the most of these contests will remain; the other, to be sacrificed to keep these powers at bay. It’s probably the best you can do to have it make any kind of semblance of sense, but it comes off the page really hokey and way too much time is dedicated to fleshing these two harbingers out and explaining the time fluctuations and universe portals when all we want to see is these awesome characters duking it out with each other.
