Welcome to Crossovers We Want to See, a fairly self-explanatory recurring feature in which we pitch the meeting of a pair of characters or teams from different comic companies. Playing editor, we'll dream up writer and artist combinations and basic story points.
Justice Society & The Invaders: We Were Soldiers
Written by Geoff Johns, painted by Alex Ross
In their respective realities, the Justice Society and Invaders race towards a final battle with Hitler in World War II just when one of his sorcerers traps each team in a vortex that sends both teams hurling through time and space, winding up in strange combinations throughout history and dimensions. In the grand tradition of old school Justice Society comics, the smaller groups will have to learn to work together and trust one another in their quest to return to their current timelines only to discover that Hitler has merged the two and has now teamed up with himself to fight the combined forces of the Invaders and the JSA!
No one can take old characters and make them fun and fresh like Geoff Johns, so why not get him together with uber-painter and Invaders aficionado Alex Ross to work together on what would surely be an epic collaboration. Heck, we'd be cool if they went all Inglourious Basterds with it and had each team kill their very own Hitler. To find out what these teams are up to, check out this week's JSA #47 or the ongoing Invaders Now from Marvel!
