Getting another post out of the same comic, thanks to my creeping senility.

I have no idea what caused the 'THKATOOM!' What I was getting at yesterday, but got sidetracked away from, is that in most of the 90's Marvel/DC crossovers, instead of having a big to-do about universes colliding or whatever, they were played as if the characters were in the same continuity and always had been. The exceptions would be more cosmic characters like Green Lantern or the Silver Surfer, but the more "street level" heroes didn't have to jump through those plot hoops.

On the other hand, in the scene above, Daredevil has inadvertently gotten blood on his glove from the crime scene--blood that he would probably be able to smell, but let that go for a second. Batman decides to ask DD some questions. With his fists. Even though, although they've never met, you have to figure Batman knows damn well Daredevil is a hero. This was the nineties, and I think Batman was well on the way to becoming a full blown asshole then.

Wayne has two more girls behind the ones there, but they all have to wonder what's up with this. Later, while Foggy Nelson tries to drum up some business in Gotham City, Bruce Wayne is threatening a blind lawyer than this town ain't big enough for the two of them. Classy, Bruce.

God, I read a lot of crossovers, but here's another from Daredevil/Batman, "Eye for an Eye" Written by D.G. Chichester, pencils by Scott McDaniel, inks by Derek Fisher.

Instead of asshole Batman from the '90's wouldn't it have been fun if they had dark Daredevil go up against crazy happy Batman from the '50's?
