I was reading an article today on the whole comic book cross-over bit (you know, where two of your favorite comic book heroes get together for one amazing, action-packed piece of what’s almost always crap, but you want to read it anyway), and saw the following, which, as both a Star Trek and X-Men fan, made me laugh out loud:
I was originally planning to wrap things up by talking about some insane comic book crossovers I’d love to see, but the simple fact is, there’s nothing I could come up with that’d be crazier than what’s already been done. There are very few ideas too stupid or backwards for them to actually put to paper, so it’s nearly impossible to come up with an idea so bizarre that it’s hilarious simply for its inherent unfeasibility. And if something hasn’t been done, and you’ve thought of it, chances are some writer or editor has too, and it’s already in the works.
I mean, look, they did an X-Men/Star Trek crossover ten years ago, and writer Scott Lobdell probably pitched the idea SOLELY because he wanted to write the following scene: “Wouldn’t it be cool if — ?”
