Amalgam Month: Assassins

For a month back in 1996, DC and Marvel Comicseses came together in the most unusual way: Combining their various creations and churning out a series of issues from the resulting Amalgam Comics universe. The question that was never asked at the time was: What the heck would have happened in the DC and Marvel universes that month had they not been amalgamated?

Ask no more!

Amalgam series: Assassins
DC series: Catwoman (guest-starring Deathstroke the Terminator)
Marvel series: Daredevil (guest-starring Elektra)

The Amalgam plot: Catsai and Dare attack Arkham Tower to get to the Big Question, ex-con mayor of Gotham.
The DC plot: The anti-heroes infiltrate Arkham Asylum taken over once again, this time by the unlikely partnership of the Riddler and Tobias Whale.
The Marvel plot: The Kingpin has been elected mayor of New York City. That is, as long as Daredevil and Elektra don't reach the top of Fisk Tower and bitch-slap him one.But first they have to get through the Big Q's underlings, like Deadeye...
But first they have to get through Arkham's inmates, like Deadshot...
But first they have to get through Fisk's minions, like Bullseye...
...Lethal...
...Cheetah...
...Kraven the Hunter (suicide? that was a clone kids!)...
...and Wired...
...and Manhunter (that lame one from the 90s)...
...and Cable (never trust a Liefeld creation)...
When they reach the top of the tower, Dare is seemingly killed, but Catsai gets her way and blows up the fat man.
When they reach the center of the asylum, Deathstroke is seemingly killed, but Catwoman gets her way and blows up the bad guys, blubber and all.
When they reach the top of the tower, Daredevil is seemingly killed (it's his comic, I wouldn't worry about it), but Elektra gets her way and blows up the fat man.
He survives, as reported by Jimmy Urich.
They survive, as reported by Jimmy Olsen, whose beat seems to cover Arkham to this day.
He survives, as reported by Ben Urich.
So now you know... the rest of the story.
