    Amalgam was a bad popularity contest. Wolverine wresttled Lobo behind a bar and killed him. Never mind that Lobo stands toe to toe with Superman.

    I just don't want a silly Versus flick if it ever took place. I claim being a spiled child for quality as given by Nolan Batman and Avengers and so on.

    That's nice - still not ashamed of enjoying it, and I'm frankly a little perplexed as to how you can know it's "terrible dreck" if you don't even know the titles it involved.

    I read it as a kid and even knew then it was very bad, and sorry I don't remember every title that was involved on a terrible story line that came out like 20 years ago.

    Ah, yes, of course, I'd made the fallacious assumption that one reserves strong opinions for media they remember, how silly of me.

    like I just said I read it as a kid and remembered it was pretty bad... and no one I mean no one whos into comics ever says "you should read amalgam." its widely known in the comic book world amalgam was garbage.

    I think at this point it is fair to say that Ramza has the larger penis, judging solely by the preceeding Internet Debate.

    I just wanted to see Superman fight Hulk. I am pretty sure I skimmed most of Amalgam, because I was not interested in it as a 10 year old.

    well the original fights was what got people talking, the melding of characters that came out afterwards was where it just got plain old silly...

    I actually have all these books in my collection from when I was a kid.. I remember the JLA and Xmen combining.. laughable

    No motivation to do anything himself, causing a prison break for cash?

    as villains go that is the definition of small time. Yes he has BIG powers, but small goals and small motivations.

    I remember Amalgam. It was fun, maybe. But in the end if was just fan service. Garbage fan service. I think I actually preferred the actual JLA/Avengers crossover that took place years later. THAT was fun, convoluted as it was.

    And mostly unreadable if you were not a diehard fan of both universes.

    I can't stand the Marvel vs DC debate. I personally love both because you get different stories and characters. DC is more like Greek mythology with these super powerful heroes while Marvel heroes are more relatable and have real world problems.

    I cant really pick. Batman is my favourite superhero overall but I really like the Avengers and Spider Man as well. I'm actually watching the whole Spider Man Animated Series on TV.com currently. Probably going to watch the Batman one at some point.

    Marvel. Even when they TRY to be worse than DC (which they seem to do more and more frequently), they can't quite measure up... Or down.
