    Iron Bat would be the least interesting combo possible. The differences between the two characters are cosmetic, cape vs armor, detective vs inventor.

    Even the most interesting thing, basically what if Tony Stark had Batman's supporting cast and rogues gallery, is only interesting because of the other characters being changed. Though if you made Stark/Wayne already dead... that could be a fun book

    A lot of the Amalgam combos were deeply boring or made no sense, yes

    Imagine it... The Teentastic Five!

    Robin + Thing = Wonderfella
    Cyborg + The Human Torch = Jonny Perpetual
    Starfire + Invisible Woman = Ultra-Violet
    Beast Boy + Mr. Fantastic = Mr. Shifter
    Raven + ________ = Raven (it’s just regular Raven)

    That is completely true and I definitely missed it, but I also think it’s funnier if Raven is not involved with the crossover and just wants it to be over.

    I've always wanted to write a Captain America noir

    Cap has to go undercover with la résistance in Paris

    the problem is I'm not clever enough to come up with a reason that Cap would stick to the standard noir tropes instead of just, you know, being Captain America

    maybe Bucky is with the resistance and Cap's off in The Shit, fighting giant nazi robots with the maquis

    Is it that you specifically want to write about Marvel’s Captain America or do you reckon you’d be happy with your own character? Because super-soldier noir in France sounds cool.

    I wanted to use Captain America because it'd be super duper idealistic 40s Cap, and he'd have friction with the resistance's methods. collateral damage, assassinations, etc.

    but I could definitely write that story with a new character

    The army needs the enemies to believe Captain America is off in other areas of Europe to mislead the opposition.

    So for this noir mission he can only do it as Steve Rogers.

    did they never do something like this with the teen titans cartoon versions? This sounds extremely familiar.

    My incredibly brief google has told me there is no Dr. Constantine

    So that is my pitch Dr. Constantine it is very original and no one has thought of it.

    (Seriously though the Ancient One...or anyone attempting to teach John Constantine anything would be hilarious.)

    It’s funny cause when I was starting up Masks last year, part of how we started building our world was essentially mashing some characters together for different combinations.

    Like, we have Sanguine, who’s Bloodrayne, but she’s the Punisher.

    The mentor character Hellwarden is John Constantine but with Tony Stark’s upbringing and outlook.

    King Croc is like if Killer Croc had Magneto’s charisma and vision, and Gorilla Ice is a goulash of Grodd, Mr. Freeze, and a dash of Poison Ivy.

    The list goes on, but it’s fun to mix and match traits to see what comes out the other side.

    Someone do the thing where you get a random wiki page of DC and Marvel characters and see what happens when you combine one from each.

    I was thinking I'd do a quick thought experiment by hitting Random Page on the Marvel and DC fan wikis and it pulled up Superboy, and...

    A literal Neo-Nazi called Aryan.

    So the combination is easy to write, but I think I'll pass on that one.
