What happens when worlds collide? Marvel and DC comics showed fans that in Marvel vs. DC (or vise versa depending on the issue). Beings from both the Marvel and DC universe battled each other for superiority and the loser's dimension would be destroyed! But neither side was willing to give up. So to prevent total destruction, the Living Tribunal and the Spectre combined the two universes. However, as a result, the beings from each universe fused with other beings from the opposite universe. So. both Marvel and DC comics created 24 one-shots featuring these "amalgam characters" under the fake comic publisher Amalgam Comics. Alex Asher had to ruin the fun by "fixing" the universes back to their original state, ending the wave of Amalgam Comics.
But, Doctor Strangefate (in Dr. Strange's pyshce) "rebuilt" the universe (for the 1997 line) only to be destoreyed again. Amalgam comics included (but not limited to): JLX (Justice League and X-Men), the Magnetic Men featuring Magneto (Magnetic Men: Metal Men and Brotherhood of Mutants mix / Magneto: Magneto and Will Mangus), Bat-Thing (Man-Bat and Man-Thing), Super Soldier (Superman and Captain America) and Lobo the Duck (Lobo and Howard the Duck). Alex Asher had to ruin the fun by "fixing" the universes back to their original state, ending the wave of Amalgam Comics.
