Comic books have always been a staple of the entertainment world. The genre is booming today with the massive success of the superhero films and television series, making new eyes want to read comics and find out the backstories of all these characters. It wasn’t always that way, with comic books being associated with being a nerd in the negative definition back in the day. Times have obviously changed and everyone is talking about comic-related characters at work on the Monday after a movie was released over the weekend. The comic book series are also selling like hot cakes and the momentum won’t be stopped.
The fantasy aspect of comic books spurs creativity from the writers and fans alike. We can get the benefit of superheroes working together or against each other. Crossovers featuring teams like The Avengers or oppositions like Batman vs. Superman are the perfect culmination to wondering how things would go down if it happened. The results also create more interesting follow-ups for the future as the movie worlds of both Marvel and DC are showing us today. There is also the concept of bringing entities from outside of the comic world into the fray. Many silly characters have been added to established comics in creating weird editions.
The odd crossovers don’t always make sense but they definitely provide humorous moments and conversation. We’ll break down that section of the comic history and look at the silly times that left an impact in our memories. Most of these situations feature the merging of completely different worlds in order to put together a coherent story. That is the ultimate goal of writing fantasy, especially in the comic world, but it doesn’t always come true. These are the examples of both, as we look at the top fifteen weirdest and most bizarre comic crossovers that somehow took place.
15 Charles Barkley and Godzilla
14 Archie and The Punisher
13 Batman and Jerry Lewis
12 Spider-Man and Ren & Stimpy
11 Batman and The Beatles
10 Transformers and Bruce Springsteen
9 Archie and Predator
8 Superman and Nestle Quik Bunny
7 David Letterman and Avengers
6 KISS and Doctor Doom
5 X-Men and Star Trek
4 Spider-Man and the cast of SNL
3 Eminem and The Punisher
2 Wonder Woman and Scooby Doo
1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Archie
The weirdest comic book crossover ended up making the most sense. Archie and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found themselves in the same pages as the turtles ended up in Riverdale. Raphael, Leonard, Michalangelo and Donatello would enter Riverdale after getting spit out by a giant intergalactic cow head. OK I did say it made sense but that’s because neither series was built on logic. The crime fighting ninjas ending up in Riverdale and having a good time partying with Archie and friends was the perfect way for them to cross paths. The teens all danced and enjoyed the life of being youthful. Humans and turtles can unite for the most enjoyable things in life.
