Quicksilver vs. The Flash.

I wish Quicksilver would get some love in the Marvel Universe... I always get a kick out of him.
(From the classic Avengers/JLA crossover)


  1. I finally got a chance to read this mini-series and I thought it was just ok. It was kind of like "turn off your brain and enjoy the pretty pictures." The characterizations were dead-on, but the plot seemed like a formality to me.

  2. I personally LOVED the JLA/Avengers mini-series, pretty much for the exact reasons you listed Kello! George Perez's work on this mini was just plain beautiful. I'm not usually a big art guy(I'll take a great story over great art anyday), but his artwork here was truly fantastic. And yes, Kurt Busiek nailed everybody's characters quite well.

    The plot was... I guess it was what it was. I thought with all of the restrictions Kurt had to deal with and all the editors he had to please from both companies, the story wound up better then it had any right to be. I've read a lot of cross-company stories and I feel this one is the best by a very wide margin(although the Teen Titans-Uncanny X-Men book wasn't half bad either).

  3. seriously.....flash would kill quicksilver any time

  4. Um, no. No he wouldn't. And I say that as a huge fan of the Wally West version of the Flash!
