Recently, I found myself pondering a question – a question that I’m sure you have all pondered as well: if all Marvel and DC comic books were cancelled, and I was in charge of restarting the line as one shared continuity, limiting myself to 25 books or so, what would I choose?
That of course led me to think of what a shared continuity between Marvel and DC would actually look like. How does one integrate the best or most interesting elements of both company’s properties into one streamlined story. Can you indeed put both the Justice League and the Avengers into one continuity, and give them both a reason to be there? What about Batman and Moon Knight? Hawkeye and Green Arrow? It’s an exercise sort of like what happened back in Crisis on Infinite Earths, but on an even bigger scale.
