DC and Marvel pit two of their most famous heroes against each other in this gloriously fangasmic romp.
We get several prologues before we get to the main storyline. The first shows Superman fighting a giant robot in Metropolis controlled by his arch-enemy, Lex Luthor, the battle ending in Luthor's defeat and capture. Next up is Spider-Man likewise taking on his own arch-enemy at the time, Doctor Octopus (the Green Goblin having been killed off for a while), which also ends in Spidey's victory. The two arch-villains are locked away in the same cell block and connive an escape plan, deciding to work together. (In between each prologue is a one-page overview about our heroes and villains, such as their origins and powers.)
