This team up is one of the most frequent requests that I have received, and one that I have personally wanted to see since I was a kid. I love the World War II setting for comics because it recalls the early formative days of the genre. All-Star Comics and then All-Star Squadron were favorites of mine and the yearly JLA/JSA team-ups were awesome to me in a time where huge gatherings of superheroes were still few and far between. The Invaders had such a great core line-up with Captain America, Namor and the Human Torch, that I was always drawn to their appearances. Having Roy Thomas as a prominent writer of both teams gave me hope that we would maybe one day see an actual crossover between the two, but sadly it just wasn't to be.
