Yeah, I remember that. I think it was also the cultural hangover with the transition to the 90's. That Image Comics thing was a bit of a symptom of that. I think Marvel and others were trying to get into the whole Gen-X market and didn't really know the best way to do it. But you're right, there were a lot of other comics that were really good then.

Thanks for the link, LightYears!

The only cameo I remember is when they had an X-Men/Spider-Man crossover between the two animated shows.

I never saw much point to the animated series. It was a kiddie take on the X-Men.

I preferred the 2000's series over the 90's one. The only 90's cartoon I liked was Batman: The Animated Series.

You and your Batman fixation.

Hey, it takes a lot for me to value a DC character as much as a Marvel character, okay?

They didn't, sum1. I just liked Batman's story, mythology, and characters. I found him more complex than most DC characters.

Batman's a noir superhero, so that's why his rogue's gallery is so bizarre. And look at Spider-Man's rogue's gallery:

Green Goblin, Electro, Vulture, Scorpion, The Shocker, Doctor Octopus, Mysterio, Hobgoblin, Sandman, Beetle, Rhino, etc. Venom was a total turnaround.

Being noir doesn't justify having a camp, silly rogues gallery.

Well, it was the 1940's and 50's. His rogue's gallery got better as time went on with Ra's al Ghul, Bane, and his newer enemies.

Part of the whole problem with Batman and the other DC heroes is that they were invented between 1938 and 1941.

Well, so were a few of the Marvel heroes. But I never had a problem with that because The Silver Age fixed a lot of those problems the Golden Age had in my opinion, and the post-Crisis continuity went further. Until New 52 messed things up and they had to reset back to post-Crisis.
