...features a dimensional crossover of the 2003 cartoon Turtles, the 80's/90's cartoon Turtles, and the original black and white Mirage Turtles.
But, it also features a scene where the '03 Turtles see within the dimensional vortex, the whole "Turtle-verse", which shows various incarnations of the comics turtles, the live-action movies, the Saban show Turtles, etc, etc, swirling all around.
Well, that seems to mean (more than) a couple things.
1.) All the Turtles incarnations "count", so all the comics-Turtles crossovers count.
2.) If you cross over with the Turtles, you count as part of the "Turtle-verse", and you too, have a live-action version, a Saban version, etc, etc, etc...
3.) Given 3, everyone's movies count, including reboots, hence why I've been dropping the links in.
4.) Given 4, if you're a movie-only person, too fucking bad, comics fucking count. A movie said so.
5.) Given that Turtles Bacon over to DC, the "Turtle-verse", gets absorbed into "The Infinite Earths", A.K.A "Hyper-time", A.K.A "Elseworlds". Bam. Handy little film, that.
X-Files meets Simpsons.
Yeah, that episode where everyone sings "good morning starshine", at the end.
And that makes the copyright-protection-shadow-concealed Marvel/DC guys really them, and makes it a direct crossover after all.
Nothing could be simpler!
Aaand, going back to "Elseworlds", like I told Hyla, given that DC constantly ovelaps with Marvel (exhibit A, B, C), "Elseworlds", and "What If?", co-exist, and are therefore essentially the same thing, indeed "What If?", is the original "Elseworlds".
Conan falls into a magical well, and appears in the late-70's.
He fights some thugs, has a run in with some cops, bangs a lady cab-driver, and gets carried back home at the last minute by a magic lightning bolt.
Fun ride, but good as it is, the sequel is better.
"What if Conan were stranded in the 20th century?".
A "what if?", of a "what if?".
Here, events veer off from last time, and the cops catch Conan before the lightning can send him back.
He busts out of the courthouse, quickly learns English, figures out guns, paper money, and the New York underworld, starts his own gang, and fights Captain America to a bloodied standstill, and wins his grudging respect.
Cap is left philosophically contemplating the differences between his, and Conan's brands of heroism.
It's also left wide open for a threequel, but sadly, over 20 years later, it's never been picked up.
This duology leaves Beastmaster 2 looking like kindergarten.
Next part of the quadrilogy, Thor gets amnesia, and wanders into the wrong magic tunnel in Asgard, into Conan's time period, and they become friends.
In a quest to remember his identity, Thor climbs an impossible-for-mortals mountain, and meets Crom face to face, and learns that a God out of his time of ascendancy is powerless in the face of the one who is, and gets his ass handed to him by Crom.
I won't spoil the rest.
Finally, Wolverine ends up in Conan's time, fights him, lops off his hand, and then causes Conan to fall into our time, but to his doom (Pheonix spazz out), and Wolverine takes Conan's place in the annals of legend, and marries Red Sonja.
Giant robots, some of 'em had launching fists, one was the model for Tranzor Z, and..one of 'em toward the end of the toy line could...wait for it...transform into a vehicle!
Yep, it started with Shoguns.
Anyhoo, issue #19, and #20, they met Fantastic four.
Dig issue #18..Megatron!
But, some other Megatron, before the name was re-purposed onto our favorite Cybertronian fascist.
Neat little bit of pre-history there...
Crystar The Crystal Warrior and Marvel.
Yet another toy license.
If I remember right, the toy and comic were created alongside each other, Crystar was all Marvel's baby.
It was all kind of a stab at competing in the He-Man market.
So...his thing was he and his pals were magically transformed into animated crystal.
I'm not entirely sure what powers this gave them other than diamond toughness...
And...their villains were lava men (also transformed from humans).
Well, at least the lava guys had heat powers....
Issue #3, they meet Doctor Strange, in issue #6, they meet Nightcrawler from X-Men, and in issue #11, they meet Alpha Flight, sort of a Canadian version of X-Men.
Godzilla and Marvel.
So, the Godzilla toy was somehow connected to the Shogun Warriors line, and he came with the package.
In issue #17, Godzilla is shrunken to the size of a mouse via Ant Man's Pym Particles, in issue #20, the Pym Particles are wearing off, and a, oh, I'll say 12-15 foot tall Godzilla, fights The Fantastic Four, in #22, they send Godzilla to prehistoric times via Dr. Doom's time machine, where he fights Devil Dinosaur (a Marvel monster) and then in #23, he somehow comes back, and fights The Avengers.
After all of this abuse, at the end of the run, Godzilla is like "fuck it, I'm going back to Japan".
Course, the superheroes fight giant monsters all the time, so, this is really no big thing for their scrapbook.
Godzilla vs. Barkley
Okay, that someone shoulda noticed....
Godzilla versus Hero Zero.
..I dunno, some Dark Horse comics robot-suit guy...
Hinted at this one before here, now I know more of the plot.
They fight The Borg, and The Cybermen, who are pretty much the original Borg.
Darkwing Duck: Crisis On Infinite Darkwings
So, Darkwing crosses over a bunch of dimensions, and meets a bunch of alternate selves, but also runs into....*deep breath*

So much for Daffy and Sonic being the glue of the universe, it's fucking Darkwing!
No...they still help a lot...
Okay, so, The Goon was in that gangbang, and he...
