Which crossover is better? and if you were to choose who would win?

He was wayyy below his peak. Both stories were so-so. IMO. Although pretty good as big crossover events go. I guess overall, I'd go with Crisis.

Crisis paved the way for a better DCU, in my opinion, while Secret Wars was sort of the point where the whole MU sort of jumped the shark.

I know the era of those crossovers was about the point where I thought the balance shifted for about 15 years - from the start of the Marvel Era (FF#1 in 1961) til the mid-'80's, I thought Marvel had a much higher average level of quality (esp. writing-wise) than DC. From the mid-'80's to the early Aughts, I thought it switched and DCwas better on average (again, esp. as concerns writing). Marvel took over again sometime in the early 21st Century, methinks but after awhile they kind of both went south.

Who would win? Well, probably the cast of Crisis. Secret Wars pulled in most of the major Marvel heroes/villains but Crisis pulled in every character on every world in DC's multiverse. That's a crazzzzzzzzy numbers advantage. Beyonder, at least as written then, might be able to beat the Anti-Monitor (or if not, maybe with Galactus as backup), but I wouldn't be certain of that either. So the big boss villain in Secret Wars MIGHT beat his Crisis counterpart, but even if so that probably wouldn't counter the ridiculous numbers difference.

Oh, wait, I forgot - Hulk and Thor were in Secret Wars, so Marvel wins. \:P
