DC vs Marvel Comics (issues 2-3 titled Marvel Comics vs. DC) was a comic book limited series cross-over, published by DC Comics (Detective Comics) and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. The series was written by Ron Marz and Peter David, with art by Dan Jurgens and Claudio Castellini.
Two god-like figures who personify the DC and Marvel Universes become aware of each other's existence, and challenge one another to a series of fights involving each universe's respective superheroes. The losing universe would be destroyed. The story had an "out-of-universe" component in that, although there were eleven primary battles, five were determined by fan vote.
