Sounds cool. I just want one thing out of this crossover.

1. If Wonder Woman ends up fighting Conan, she'd better win.

I say this because Conan has had other crossovers with other Super-Heroes and should have lost those fights but didn't.

If they don't end up fighting at all, all the better.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

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.

Having Wonder Woman lose to Conan so soon after the success of the Wonder Woman movie would anger the female fans I'm sure.

(I wonder why they went with Conan instead of Red Sonja...Conan's more important but Red Sonja meets Wonder Woman would be more interesting IMO)

Wow! I totally agree. The Conan/Wonder Woman crossover seems hard to justify as a story that "needs" to be written. But a Red Sonja/Wonder Woman crossover is a different matter entirely! It cries out to be written.

Probably DC would rather do business with Dark Horse than Dynamite? If Dynamite is still doing Red Sonja, that is.
