Plastic Man and Medusa / Darkseid Vs. Darth Vader



Some commented on my recent Moon Knight/Elongated Man cover that they enjoyed the offbeat team ups just as much as the pairings that more naturally go together.  Well, here's both on one cover for you!  Plastic Man and Medusa both spent time as criminals, so they aren't completely different from one another, I guess. Darkseid battling Darth Vader is a common request, and I can understand why - it would be an epic battle!

Darkseid resembles the Thing.

Darkseid vs Darth Vader is also requested because of the pun involved: Darkseid vs the Dark Side. And yes, it would be an epic battle, as the lower half of this cover clearly illustrates.

On the top half, Plastic Man and Medusa are both able to reach quite a distance, as that picture shows, so pairing them up isn't so much of a stretch. #BadPunNoCookie

Truly offbeat would be something like, say, Adam Strange and Conan.

Plus they both have red! Good pairing as long as Eel keeps hands to himself or Black Bolt may have a thing to say about it.

I have to agree, Ross. Darkseid vs. a Darkside Force-user isn't as off-beat as it might initially sound. Especially, if the lightsaber the King of Apokolips was trying to wrestle away from Vader was actually the titular magic sword from SOULCALIBUR IV!

Medusa and Plastic Man, though? Definitely guaranteed to put a smile on my face! With the latter, incessantly flippant (like a certain friendly neighborhood webslinger). And the former, perpertually dead serious. At least, with regard to her now-classic, one-time run-in with the webslinger!

TO be fair, Anonymous, if you read the write-up, Ross says "Here's both on one cover" IE, one offbeat and one natural.

Interesting. A DC character (Darkseid) who inspired a Marvel character (Thanos), against a character (Darth Vader) inspired by a Marvel character (Doctor Doom).

@Bob Greenwade: "...so much of a stretch."

Lol! That's a good one. :-D

I think it would be interesting to see Darth Vader use his lightsaber against the ebony blade of the Black Knight. It would also be cool to see Darth Vader try his might against the likes of Battlestar Galactica (the older version) and Flash Gordon.

@5th Anonymous: How about Darth Vader and SoulCalibur vs. Arthas the Lich King and Frostmourne?

Or Darth Vader vs Sauron.

No contest, Chas. Vader would tk that ring right off of Sauron's dainty digit!
