Who's stronger ? Who's faster ? Who's TOUGHER ? Any fan of comics will have fantasized at some time about the characters of rival publishers coming together to battle for the safety of the universe ... This is basically the plot here , with the heroes of Marvel and DC fighting it out to save their own realities , although the plot is a little arbitrary for my tastes , and was , in some cases , voted for by avid readers ( supposedly ) ; most interesting is the creation of the Amalgam characters , who turn out to be great fun ( see their own volumes for full info ) ; Jurgens' art is workman-like , but nothing special ; his collaborator excels, however , and is a treat to see -- particularly the Hulk/Superman clash , which really tears it up ! My only other criticism is that the story turns out too balanced to conclusively reach a proper victory , presumably to salve the egos of both companies , rather than following each bout to it's natural conclusion ; Nevertheless , a most recommended read !
