Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Doctor Strangefate wants his universe to be kept together, even if he has to make two others collapse into it. Since the DC and Marvel universes are incompatible with each other (even the size of the Earths is different) we would later see the potential consequences of doing so in ''Comicbook/JLAAvengers''.

* AllThereInTheManual: See LettersToTheEditor. This includes also the CrisisCrossover mentioned below.



* FramingDevice: About half of the original comics are flashbacks giving exposition to the merged characters' origins.



* LettersToTheEditor: Some of the one-shots had faux letter columns with letters from portmanteaus of DC/Marvel creators (such as [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Simon]] [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Siegal]]) referencing [[NoodleIncidents earlier issues of other comics in the Amalgam line]].

* DecompositeCharacter: In some cases, a single Marvel or DC characters originated more than one amalgam: Marvel's Daredevil originated Dare (merged with Deathstroke, in ''Assassins'') and Deaddevil (merged with Deadman, in ''The Exciting X-Patrol''); DC's Batman originated the titular characters of ''Legends of the Dark Claw'' (merged with Wolverine) and ''Bruce Wayne: Agend of S.H.I.E.L.D.''

It seems that TheMultiverse of each company's main continuity was in fact the creation of two SufficientlyAdvancedAliens known as "The Brothers". For eons, they were ignorant of each other until the first IntercontinuityCrossover brought them to each others' attention. Each wanting to be the singular AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Multiverse, they decided that in true Superhero fashion, the matter could only be settled with a FightScene. Or rather, a series of one-on-one battles between the most similar heroes. Some of these fights were between characters who would later be Amalgamated, such as Franchise/SpiderMan and ComicBook/{{Superboy}}. Some were matched by ability; the BadassNormal Franchise/{{Batman}} versus the BadassNormal ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, for example. The loser's universe would be destroyed, so both sides had plenty of motivation to kill each other. At the same time, a young man named [[AlliterativeName Axel Asher]], A.K.A. [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Access]], discovered that he was a [[CosmicKeystone shard of the original joined reality]]. This was apparently [[LegacyCharacter a mantle that was passed down from generations]] (he acquired the abilities from a homeless man who died soon after). Access could only stand by and watch as the two universes did battle. Marvel was ahead six to five, ''when suddenly''...
