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.
Supergirl & Spider-Girl: Girl Power
Written by Gail Simone
Drawn by Amanda Conner
Story: Getting out from under the shadow of more famous friends and relatives can be no easy task, just ask Supergirl and Spider-Girl. They've got some pretty big reps to live up to, but that hasn't stopped either of them from doing their thing in an attempt to make a name for themselves. They get the chance to do exactly that when the Superman Revenge Squad strikes a deal with the Sinister Six to combine efforts and focus their evil energies on killing Supes and Spidey, starting with their female counterparts as practice. Much to their villainous chagrin, the ladies are more than able to face these foes themselves. Along the way, the two heroines compare notes about their relationships with their namesakes and what it's like being a teenage girl in the superhero game.
Spider-Girl's series kicks off this week written by Paul Tobin and drawn by Clayton Henryas Supergirl reaches her 58th issue by Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle for DC, which makes these two of the more prominent female heroes on both sides of the Big Two divide. While all the creators on these respective books have been doing a bang up job with the ladies, we'd like to see some more women involved with the project, so we'd enlist Gail Simone and Amanda Conner, two of the biggest female creators in the industry, to rock this crossover to the core. If DC and Marvel can make this happen by next year, it will be just in time for the 35th anniversary of the first Marvel/DC crossover featuring their major stars!
