Spider-Man Vs. The Rogues



It's interesting that Captain Cold and Heatwave have made the leap from recurring villains on The Flash to regular characters on Legends of Tomorrow.  I can understand their inclusion, as it adds to the mix of personalities and lends conflict to the core team.  Wentworth Miller's overacting and chewing the scenery as Cold is almost at Jada Pinkett-Smith/Fish Mooney levels though, and he is a bit hard to take sometimes.

I love Wentworth Miller's Cold! He commits to the character and it shows. The entire LOT cast works great.

And I hear Fish is returning to Gotham. Yes!!!

Were there two Tricksters in the original image? Or am I seeing it wrong?

Yup there were two at the time in the Flash run.

Now I want to see Barry take on the Sinister Six I always felt Flash and Spider-Man had awesome enemies as a kid. B

Cary Comic said...

Interesting concept! It raises the question(s): did Barry and/or Wally finally make things too tough for them in Central City? Or did Kingpin lure them to "New Yawk" specifically to do in Spidey?

Spidey vs Flash's Rouges gallery? Nice. Might be cool to see the Flash take on the Sinister Six.

Bob Buethe said...

@Martin Maenza: Absolutely! The four greatest rogues galleries in comics belong to Flash, Spider-Man, Batman, and Dick Tracy (not necessarily in that order).

Bob Buethe said...

Hey, how about the X-Men's Rogue joining the Flash's Rogues? Or better yet, Rogue vs. Madame Rouge from the Doom Patrol?

Simon Dyer said...

The ones he's got are fine but if Spidey had the Flash's rouges then THOSE would be some Amazing comic books.

First: "Flash Mobs" #BadPunNoCookie

Second: I maintain that the Flash has the second most interesting cast of villains in the DC Universe.

Other: It just hit me that it might be interesting to see Spidey and Bats (who, I think, have gotten together at least a couple of times already on here) team up to fight Killer Croc and the Lizard.

Ross, we'll done. One of my faves thus far. I will echo the sentiments of others--Barry (or Wally) vs the Sinister Six seems like the natural follow-up to this tale.

I've mentioned this before on this site, but this cover and some of the discussion DEMANDS that I bring it up again. I've long had a fantasy story in mind in which several of the Spider-Foes decide to invade Gotham City only to be opposed not by Batman but by the Batfoes! For example:

Kraven v. Catman
The Vulture v. Penguin
Mysterio V. The Riddler
Black Cat v. Catwoman
Doc Ock v. Mr. Freeze
Green Goblin v. The Joker
Kingpin v. Bane

I think that some of these characters might be dead, but that doesn't stop a guy from dreaming!

Captain Marvel also had a good rogues gallery in the Monster Society of Evil.

Although maybe "good"is not the right word.

I second Bob Buethe's future suggestion. If only because I get tired of all the so-called "dedicated fans" who constantly misspell each character's name in their on-line fan fiction!*

*For example, Bob (if one of them had made the suggestion ahead of you): "How about Rouge of the X-men vs. Madame Rogue of the Doom Patrol?"
