The PowersThatBe named the Living Tribunal and ComicBook/TheSpectre try to take the pressure off by merging both universes into an Amalgam where the iconic main characters of each world merge into single being with aspects of each-- ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} become Dark Claw, Franchise/{{Superman}} and Captain America become Super Soldier ([[SuperSoldier He really was one, too]]). Some were merged because they were [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent similar]] in powers or purpose, others because their names ''sounded'' alike (resulting in some awful {{punny name}}s) and still others for the heck of it (see the list below). Each had a "remembered" history that splits the difference between the merged characters-- there was a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Super Soldier who joined the All-Star Winners Squadron, a [[TheWildWest Wild West]] team of [[{{Mutants}} mutant "malforms"]] called Generation [[ComicBook/JonahHex Hex]], etc.

** Thunder Ross is depicted far more sympathetically, as he adopts Spider-Boy and plays a role similar to Uncle Ben.

Turns out Access can't stay in one universe too long, or his powers go haywire and begin transposing inhabitants from one universe to another. And in the sequel ''All Access'', it turned out the Amalgam [[AWizardDidIt Sorcerer]] Doctor Strangefate had hidden himself in Comicbook/DoctorStrange's mind, and burst out to try to re-create his universe by merging the Big Two. So once again, cue fight music as the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]] and Comicbook/XMen throw down, only to be saved by [[DeusExMachina the original Doctor Strange]] creating an independent ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse ''without'' affecting the original two (though based on the first one). This Amalgamverse was safely tucked away inside Access and again all is well. Except for a few whacky TimeTravel adventures in the ''Unlimited Access'' miniseries, but those had no plot effects and were apparently just for fun.

* 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.''
