Are any company-crossovers cannon?

Not counting ElseWorlds and the like. Examples: Green lantern/Aliens. Batman/Spawn. Batman/Judge Dredd. Wolverine/Badrock. There are many more. So do any of these count? Does Spawn live in the DCU? Did Superman really fight Aliens?

not much of a spoiler , but the C.A.T.s respond to a emergency distress call from another hero team stormwatch. lets just say stormwatch had some team members who "retired early ", their demises stayed after the arc was done. if u count wildstorm different from DC , captain atom and mr majestic had crossovers that stuck.

outside of traditional superhero stories the hack / sash series had crossovers that are part of continuity as well , they had the heroes go against evil ernie, chucky, and bomb queen

I'm pretty sure JLA/Avengers was canon to the DCU at one point.

@wildvine: The Invincible/Spider-man crossover was canon to Invincible. So I guess it is to Marvel as well (the whole comic was hilarious):

The DC-JLA one from a few years back is said to be canon, at least pre New 52. At times the characters do recall it....its vague but its the closest to canon

The egg Krona was sealed in at the end of the JLA/Avengers crossover showed up in a Crime Syndicate story and the Trinity mini series. Elements of that were canon.

For a while Marvel was keeping a series going from a secondary character introduced in Amalgam

Wow, I didn't realize either of those were canon. The Batman/Punisher crossovers were awesome.

: Anything crossed over with Savage Dragon is considered canon by Erik Larsen, including the Superman/ Dragon crossovers. The most he was able to acknowledge them in the Savage Dragon series though was showing Angel running around the house in Superman's cape. Something he'd asked Supes for in the crossover. (As far as I know, it's never been mentioned in a DC book.)

Also, I think any company crossovers between creator owned projects are generally considered canon, even if it's unspoken. Otherwise, what's the point? Plus, they don't have to edit the trade paperbacks that way.

Also again, I think the Invincible appearance in Marvel Team-Up #14 is considered canon, and was reprinted in both the MTU and Invincible trades (I think).

I was under the impression that the creation of Access was meant to provide a canon explanation as to crossovers between Marvel and DC, with him being the original character shared between the two companies. Since the whole incident a while ago, there's no telling whether the recent DC reboot evicted Access from DC continuity or not, which kind of makes Access entirely Marvel's character, but also lacking any purpose for existing.

I'd like to think that the crossovers being canon was true. Since Continuity is kind of a big deal in comics, having people who only focus on such crossovers having a continuity to follow would be interesting, instead of just them getting one off stories that always start with "Dafuq are you?"

Yes. Malibu and Marvel.

Malibu was basically Marvel's sister company so Malibu is Marvel, but with two names. Their comics are cannon to Marvel.

Spawn/Batman is canon in Spawn but not in DC.
