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?

* TalkToTheFist: Superman comments that he and The Hulk were teleported to the Grand Canyon where no bystanders would be hurt -- Hulk interrupts him by punching him and basically saying, "Let go already."

Added DiffLines:

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


* 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:

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


** Near the end of the original ''Marvel vs. DC'' miniseries, the Hulk refers to Superman fighting the Mole Man and his underlings in the Batcave as "Superman vs. the Mole Men", which could very well be a reference to ''Superman and the Mole Men'', a 1951 film starring the Man of Steel that featured underground humanoids.

In addition, the scene has Superman putting himself in the path of a gigantic ray gun fired by the Mole Men, a reference to the movie's climactic scene.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateEnding: While it was known that Wolverine vs. Lobo had a different outcome drawn in case of a Lobo win, a pencilled and inked final page for Superman vs. Hulk where [[https://kanto.legiaodosherois.com.br/w750-h750-q70-k1/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/legiao_aAWEweUicFgT.jpg.jpeg Hulk defeats Superman]] has recently surfaced, implying that the other three main encounters also had different outcomes drawn.


Added DiffLines:

* NonLethalKO: Enforced by the Brothers; opponents only need to be restrained to count as defeated, like the three-count pin in a wrestling match (the narration helpfully makes the comparison).

Added DiffLines:

* ShamuFu: Aquaman ends his fight with Namor by using his powers to force a whale to jump on top of Namor.
