Added DiffLines:

* DuctTapeForEverything: Morty's first solution to contain the dimensional leak is tape the heck out of his box. It doesn't work, but the box holds together for a good while.
--> '''Morty:''' First law of the universe: can ''never'' have too much duct tape!


* ContinuityNod: Kyle Raynor and Silver Surfer had already had a team-up, and they acknowledge this.

* PopularityPower: With the main fights being decided by popular vote, this was a given. The fights that involved the X-Men, specifically, were ''very'' controversial - especially Wolverine vs. Lobo, which many point out the Main Man should have won since his HealingFactor is more potent than Wolverine's, so he could keep fighting for longer (this was handwaved by WordOfGod explaining that Lobo was paid to take a dive). Similarly, Storm beating Wonder Woman by zapping her with lightning a few times is considered ridiculous these days (considering that not only Wonder Woman's bracelets are capable of deflecting lightning, they can ''summon'' lightning if she beats them together), but in the mid-90's, the X-Men were at the height of popularity. Meanwhile, the writers also expected Captain America to beat Batman, but reversed the way it was supposed to be resolved (Bats would be knocked out by Cap's shield).

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreSpecial: What ultimately causes the Brothers to back down is seeing the lengths that Batman and Cap are willing to go to make them stop fighting. They see the entire history that led them to that point and decide it's not worth it to let it all go to waste with either of them dying.


** Averted with Wonder Woman, who finds herself able to lift Mjolnir just as Storm appears for their fight. Wonder Woman decides it would be unfair to fight with that extra power boost and ditches the hammer.

Wonder Woman decides it would be unfair to fight with that extra power boost and ditches the hammer.[[note]]Wonder Woman holding Mjolnir was likely so she could fight Storm on equal footing should the votes go Wondy's way. Amazingly, they didn't.[[/note]]



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Superman makes his entrance by putting ''the Juggernaut'' on his ass with ''one'' punch. Unstoppable force, indeed.

Unstoppable force, indeed.[[note]]It's worth pointing out that Juggernaut was confused as he was just teleported to the Daily Planet roof and he didn't see Supes' punch coming.[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Wonder Woman tosses away Mjolnir for her battle with Storm, feeling a win with the hammer's power enhancement would be dishonorable. Never mind that her entire ''universe's existence'' was at stake.


*** Mjolnir's handle: Jurgens drew it tied to a leather strap; Castellini drew it tied to a chain.
*** Elektra's headgear is a kerchief to Jurgens, and just a red strip around her forehead, not covering hair in Castellini's art.
*** Lobo's hair: wavy to Jurgens, straight to Castellini.
*** Still on Lobo: Jurgens' rendition of him has him wearing a sleeveless t-shirt under his vest and an Iron Cross necklace, while Castellini drew him bare-chested save for the vest.

This is where Access comes in: once a drifter named Axel Asher, he soon learned he carried within himself a shard of the Brothers' essence, and received his powerd from his predecessor, a hobo who tended to an oversized cardboard box in an alley in New York City, which in fact hid a gateway between the universes, and became ground zero for the crossover when the gate became too powerful to contain. As a last-ditch attempt, Access was forced to share his power with Batman and Captain America, whose duel had just taken place nearby, so when the universes were combined, Access made sure to take these shards back from both heroes' amalgamated forms to empower the Spectre and the Living Tribunal, helping them keep both universes' integrity while splitting Amalgam back into DC and Marvel. Unfortunately, this only made the Brothers go "screw this" and straight-up fight each other. Knowing this would be the irrevocable end, Batman and Cap convince Access to let them try and stop the Brothers - which they do once they see their respective heroes, and see each of their universe has their own worth. So they stop trying to destroy each other, go their separate ways and all is well, right?
