Amalgam Comics : Marvel and DC Collide
When Two Comic Companies Collide
Back in 1996 DC comics, and Marvel Comics decided to merge a couple of their characters for twelve issues. This was the start of Amalgam Comics. They decided to do it again in 1997, and created twelve more mixed up books. I always enjoyed reading alternate stories of my favorite heroes, and I loved these books. It was fun seeing the different combinations that the two companies came up with. No matter how cheesy some of them may have been it was a history making event, and one that has not happened since.
In this lens I will introduce you to the visionary world that these two companies created, and the heroes that they forged. These are not the superheroes you know. Welcome to a new universe of Amalgam. Sit back and enjoy.
The DC Amalgams :
Amazon - Was a cross between Storm (X-men) and Wonder woman. It was written and drawn by John Byrne.
Assassins - 2 heroes named Catsai, and Dare the Terminator. Using a mix of Daredevil, and Elektra with lesser known DC characters.
Dr. Strangefate - Combined Dr. Strange and Dr. Fate. This book of mystical doings introduced the amalgam only hero of Access who was the reason for the merger of the two univereses.
JLX - Justice League meets the X-men in this Amalgam DC mashup.
Legends of the Dark Claw - Batman and Wolverine become the Amalgam hero, Darkclaw.
Super-Soldier - Captain America and Superman combine to become the Super-Soldier, drawn to look like the golden age books, and going with the story of this "classic" hero vs Nazi Germany.
The Marvel Amalgams :
Bruce Wayne Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Bruce Wayne becomes the Secret Agent instead of Nick Fury.
Bullets and Bracelets - Combined elements of The Punisher with Diana Prince (Wonder woman).
Magneto and the Magnetic Men - Magneto and his Brotherhood mashup with the Metal Men.
Speed Demon - The Ghost Rider and the Flash combined.
Spider Boy - Spiderman and Superboy.
