The Amalgam Age of Comics

In 1996 and 1997 DC and Marvel temporarily put aside their differences and released a bunch of titles under the Amalgam Comics banner. The two companies worked together and created crazy, mixed up jumbles of some of their best characters. I've decided to see if I can create some new Amalgam characters using the magic of Photoshop! If you have an unofficial DC/Marvel mash-up that you'd like to see, just let me know!
Bruce Wayne was just just an ordinary teenager living in Gotham City.  He wasn’t the class jock or the class geek, but he was a comic book fan.  Inspired by Kick-Ass, a comic book series and movie about an ordinary kid who puts on a costume and fights crime, Bruce decides to become the world’s first real life superhero.  He chooses to model his new identity on a bat after one of the creatures flies into his bedroom through an open window and scares him half to death.  Creating his costume from a wetsuit and an old Halloween costume, Bruce is soon getting his ass kicked by a gang of street thugs.  When asked by a witness what his name is, a dazed and concussed Bruce mumbles the first thing that comes into his head and unfortunately for him the name sticks.  Before long, BAT-ASS is an internet sensation, with a Youtube video of his battle with the thugs going viral and a MySpace page acting as a ‘Bat-Signal’ for people who need his help.  However, BAT-ASS soon begins to attract the attention of the vigilantes BIG ALFIE and HIT-BIRD and also a certain crime boss who fancies himself a comedian…..

The Kick-Ass images are from Kick-Ass #1-3 (2008) and are by John Romita JR and Tom Palmer.  Joker’s smile is from Punisher/Batman: Deadly Knights (1994) and is by John Romita JR and Klaus Janson.  The Bat costume bits are from Realworlds:Batman (2000) and is by Marshall Rogers.
