 Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man [Marvel/DC]

The first DC/Marvel crossover pits the comic book heavyweights Superman and Spider-Man against each other. Co-published by Marvel and DC.

The first official superhero cross-company crossover was Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man (January 2, 1976).

Marvel and DC had collaborated on MGM’s “Marvellous Wizard of Oz” the previous year – but this was something else – a truly momentous cross over which merited the hype it generated.The tale was written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Ross Andru, both among the few to have worked on both Superman and Spider-Man in their regular titles. The 96 page story put the heroes into conflict with one another following the malevolent manoeuvrings of Lex Luthor and Doctor Octopus.
