DC vs. Marvel Comics is a comic book limited series crossover published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. The series is written by Ron Marz and Peter David, with art by Dan Jurgens and Claudio Castellini.
Two brothers who personify the DC and Marvel Universes become aware of the other's existence, and challenge one another to a series of duels involving each universe's respective superheroes. The losing universe would cease to exist. The story had an "out of universe" component in that, although there were eleven primary battles, five outcomes were determined by fan vote.
The six primary battles were:
Aquaman (DC) vs. Namor (Marvel)
Elektra (Marvel) vs. Catwoman (DC)
Flash (DC) vs. Quicksilver (Marvel)
Robin (DC) vs. Jubilee (Marvel)
Silver Surfer (Marvel) vs. Green Lantern (DC)
Thor (Marvel) vs. Captain Marvel (DC)
There were five battles in which the outcomes were determined by the votes of fans:
Batman (DC) vs. Captain America (Marvel)
Spider-Man (Marvel) vs. Superboy (DC)
Wolverine (Marvel) vs. Lobo (DC)
Storm (Marvel) vs. Wonder Woman (DC)
Superman (DC) vs. Hulk (Marvel)
Marvel received more votes than DC, thus allowing Marvel characters to win three of the five fan voted battles. However, the storyline does not show one side as being victorious.
