Off THEIR Minds: What Marvel & DC Characters Would Make a Good Amalgam?
Hmm...after watching the latest Injustice trailer, I think Raven + Magik + Psylocke would be a good combo.
Some other musings would be:
Emma Frost + Black Canary; or Black Canary + Black Bolt
Punisher + Arsenal
Gambit + Zatanna (speaking backwards with a Cajun accent, good luck trying to decipher her spells)
Wolverine + Hawk (or Hawkman)
The Flash + The Juggernaut
Magneto + Ra's al Ghul
She-Hullk + Wonder Woman
Saint Walker + Iron Fist
Morbius + Etrigan
Doctor Octopus + Black Manta
Batman + Ironman; I know this has been said a lot BUT, with the protege/ward relationship of a Robin + Iron-Spider amalgam.
If I wanted to have combos, I'd tend to go away from "like" characters, as much as Batman Spiderman combo would be great. Like I'd love to see a Superman/Dr. Strange combo, Supes with the ability of the Sorcerer Supreme. I did like the Dr. Doom Darkseid one as well, but a Darkseid and Loki combo would be interesting. Lex Luthor and Hulk. Wolverine and Flash. (All that speed plus all that savage fighting ability and unbreakable bones) Green Lantern Iron Man to have the Powers of the Green Lantern core and have it enhanced at all with an Iron Man suit. Deadpool and Joker would def be a great character. To many to think and post... I might want to take a look at some of these amalgams...
Magneto and Green Lantern would make Erik the Green or Erik the Emerald
Flash and Blackbolt would make Flashbolt
Wolverine and Joker would make Mad Jackal
Beast and Lex Luthor would make Henry Alexander Luthor
Colossus and Clayface would make Ironside
Psylocke and Hawkgirl would make Tengu
What I didn't like about the old Amalgam was that the characters were too similar. Fate and Strange, where is the difference. Now Superman and Dr Strange makes a true powerhouse and cancels one of Superman's weaknesses. Hulk and either a green or red lantern ring, depending on whether you think his rage is more intense than his will power, scary thought either way.
are the amalgam books worth reading?
Sort of. Some of the stories are kind of lame, but I really enjoyed the novelty factor.
Best: Both Magneto books, both Dark Claws, both Spider-Boys, both X-Patrols, Assassins (probably my favorite single issue), Lobo the Duck, the first Super-Soldier.
Worst: Amazon, Generation Hex, Iron Lantern (sad, ain't it), Thorion of the New Asgods, Challengers of the Fantastic, the second Super-Soldier, Bat-Thing, I also thought JLX was just an awkward concept.
Iceman & Green Lantern = Hal Drake the Cyan Lantern, a living freezing light construct.
Mr. Fantastic & Doomsday = Mr. Adaptive and way to smart for his own good.
Nightcrawler & Deathstroke = Deadpool kind of.
Toad & Union Jack & Flash = Jumping Jack Flash
maybe gambit + green arrow
vandal savage + sebastian shaw =sebastian savage
deadpool + joker = deadjoke
the flash + jamie madrox
zoom + the juggernaut
black canary + havok = black havok
iron fist + batman =iron bat
toy man + mystreio
loki + lex luther
Mr.sinister + granny goodness = Mr. goodness
ultron + brainiac = ultra brain
bane + puck = M.S.M (mad . steroid , midgit)lol
Vixen + Hellcat = Hellvixen, the animalistic shape-changing former model, Mari Walker.
Squirrel Girl + Power Girl = Squirrel-Power Girl, the kryptonian mutant with power over squirrels.
Nightwing + Rage = Nightrage, the super strong former sidekick of Dark Claw, all grown up.
Bucky + Mr. Freeze = The Winter Soldier, former sidekick of Super Soldier who was believed dead but resurfaced after all these years after having been preserved in a special cryo suit.
