Team Up Series
Series where two characters team up temporarily, usually one star and a bunch of guest-stars
Alice Girl is so cool. Wouldn't it be great if she and Bob Man would team up? Even better - next month it could be The Amazing Charlie, the month after that Dandevil, then Elf Edna, then Fin Fang Fred, then Gertrude the Great.... This is a Comic Book series built around the concept of two (sometimes more but usually just two) heroes teaming up - it usually has one main star which others team up with, but not always. Series where the main characters pretty much only team up with each other, like Superman/Batman and World's Finest (also a Superman/Batman team up) don't count. (Or do they? Thoughts?) Also not for regularly teaming groups like The Avengers, Justice League of America, etc. Possibly related to Guest-Star Party Member. N.B. If there are examples outside of comics that's fine, but the only examples I have now are of comics.
- Marvel Team-Up: Spider-Man and someone else, almost every time: only of the 157 issues from Volume 1, only 11 didn't feature the wall-crawler as one of the team-ees.
- The later series Spider-Man Team-Up went and put him in the title, so he has to show up every issue.
- The most recent version of Marvel Team-Up didn't focus on Spider-Man; usually they were one-time teamups, although there was a Half-Arc Season through the series regarding new villain Titannus.
- Ultimate Spider-Man got his own team-up book, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up.
- Marvel Two-In-One: The Thing teams up with other heroes.
- Cable and Deadpool, For most of the issues, it's a Superman/Batman-esque teamup, but the last few issues follow the Spiderman/Random Marvel Hero formula, after Cable dies.
- Deadpool Team-Up
- DC Comics Presents: Superman and other heroes.
- Action Comics was a Superman team-up book for a while Post-Crisis after DC Comics Presents ended.
- The Brave and the Bold: Batman teams up with others. Batman: The Brave and the Bold was named after and gets its concept from this. The new comic book series doesn't focus on Batman.
- The relaunched version of Adventure Comics.
- Super Team Family from the Bronze Age.
