This is actually pretty cool (if you skip the first one which is an abomination). It's a list of 10 mashup DC/Marvel characters. A one-off book for some of these would be pretty cool.

Umm, Rhodey, you *do* know that Amalgam Comics (a join venture by Marvel and DC) did this better, ten years, don't you? http://www.marvunapp.com/list/amalgamd.htm
Art: Duffy wrote that post. Rhodey hasn't written a post here in many years!
Nevertheless, I knew about Amalgam; I have a copy of Iron Lantern, too. Duffy may not be as comicbook inclined as me! ;-)
Duff: How inadequate is that Captain Bat shield, eh?
All: It was me and I thought this was just an thought experiment. Didn't know it had gone into production. FWIW, I used to read comic books but I couldn't keep up. I still read them when I get a chance and it has been interesting to see which titles my kids like.
The shield is uh...interesting.
It was very short-lived, if memory serves.
I am the owner of the site that posted these mashups. I commissioned artists for each one that I thought would be cool to see. I tried to stay away from doing any that I had seen before. The FlasHulk is my favorite. Glad some people liked them.
