The Marvel Family Vs. The Avengers



We've seen The Avengers battling world-conquering megalomaniacs, alien invasions and even each other on the big screen.  While it will be fun seeing them all together against Thanos, I hope for some future installments we can see them square off against another team of super-characters.  The Masters of Evil would be great, or even a dimension-spanning story featuring the Squadron Supreme.

It would be really cool to see The Avengers versus Kang.

It was ALWAYS cool to see the Avengers versus Kang.

Kang can't be in an Avengers film as long as Fox owns the film rights as part of their Fantastic Four deal.

Nice cover, Ross. I have a bad feeling that the Avengers are going down--unless of course Thor discovers that magic lightning will change the Marvels back into children....

@David Welsh: any appearance by Kang in a Fox sequel to their FF reboot would most likely be under his original moniker; Pharaoh Rama-Tut. But, I don't see the former ever happening seeing as how the latter tanked at the 2014 box office!

@Ross: intriguing concept! It makes me wonder how he would bring about such a conflict. Matching wits with the Grandmaster, perhaps, from his old Venusian hide-out?

Cool cover, and well done! I could imagine that Sivana could use some of his funky inventions to make the Avengers and the Marvels each think that the other had gone over to the dark side (perhaps even literally, with the Marvels thinking that the Avengers were working for Darkseid!).

PS: I woke up this morning imagining the Inferior Five battling Fin Fang Foom. There's lots of room for further alliteration there.

"There's lots of room for further alliteration there."

Fantastic Four ... Freedom Fighters ... Freddy Freeman ...
Funky Flashman ...

Now we're talking! The always under-utilized, under-appreciated Marvel Family, back in action together again! It's been too long since that has happened. And against my three favorite Avengers to boot! This cover made my day Ross, many thanks.

As for the matchup I'd like to see, they had a fight against the Defenders in the early '80s...man I wish I'd kept the comic book, I don't remember it very well now. In any case, it was when Beast was with the Defenders, maybe even leading them, and was excellent. That's the matchup I'd like to see, though yes, I doubt we see the Defenders make the big screen.

That's a great cover, but where's Uncle Dudley?

Sonofjack Well said...

"but where's Uncle Dudley?"

He's back at the mansion fighting Jarvis!

Sonofjack: I was thinking more along the lines of a "final fight for freedom," taking place in Scotland over the Firth of Forth.

Oh man, the Squadron Supreme/Sinister in the MCU would be killer.
