DC vs Marvel Comics (Issues #2 and #4 titled Marvel vs DC Comics) is a comic book limited series crossover published in prestige format by DC Comics and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. The series is written by Ron Marz and Peter David, with art by Dan Jurgens and Claudio Castellini.

Plot Summary

Two brothers who personify the DC and Marvel universes become aware of the other's existence, and challenge each other to a series of duels involving each universe's respective superheroes. The losing universe will cease to exist. The story has an out of universe component in that although there are eleven primary battles, (primary six with winners in bold type: Aquaman vs. Namor; Elektra vs. Catwoman; Flash vs. Quicksilver; Robin vs. Jubilee; Silver Surfer vs. Green Lantern and Thor vs. Captain Marvel) five of the outcomes are determined by fan votes (winners in bold type: Batman vs. Captain America;[1][2] Spider-Man vs. Superboy; Storm vs. Wonder Woman; Wolverine vs. Lobo and Superman vs. Hulk).

Marvel Comics receives more votes than DC Comics,[3] although the storyline does not show one side as being victorious. The "brothers" resolve the situation by temporarily creating a new universe, called the Amalgam universe, which is occupied by merged versions of many of the heroes (such as Dark Claw — a merging of characters Batman and Wolverine). An inter-dimensional character called Access eventually manages to restore the universes to their normal state.

Collections

The series was collected into a trade paperback, DC versus Marvel Comics (collects mini-series and Doctor Strangefate #1, 163 pages (Sep. 1996) ISBN 1563892944).
