Sounds cool. I just want one thing out of this crossover.
Quote:1. If Wonder Woman ends up fighting Conan, she'd better win.
Quote:I say this because Conan has had other crossovers with other Super-Heroes and should have lost those fights but didn't.
Quote:If they don't end up fighting at all, all the better.
I was thinking pretty much the same thing. It would be ridiculous for them to fight each other. But also I have to wonder what threat could possibly be appropriate for both characters. Anything that could give Wonder Woman pause would obliterate Conan.
I love Conan, by the way. Or I did, when he was at Marvel. I've also read all of Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. But part of Conan's essential appeal is the fact that he isn't superhuman. I think maybe he's peak human like Captain America, but that's it. Yet he fights wizards, demons, and the occasional god, when not laying waste to human hordes. He's certainly an over-achiever. But fighting at the level of Wonder Woman is going too far.
HOWEVER - Maybe we're talking about King Conan, who can marshal the resources of all of Aquilonia.
