    I mean it would make a fantastic idea for a crossover of having the bots with the cool DC team with Megatron teaming up with Darkseid.

    DC seem to be off the crossover gravy train for the time being, but interesting topic for discussion in the comic thread maybe.

    With the way Avengers is taking off, and with Hasbro doing both TF and Marvel toys, another Avengers/Transformers would be a better idea :)

    No. It just doesn't fit.

    JLA/Avengers. That worked, and it was great.

    Transformers/superheroes... doesn't work.

    I didn't say it should happen, I just said it was a better idea :p  I agree, it was really bad though, the TFs and superheroes just don't mix.

    well the last one was just a hands down bad comic. TF and superheroes can work, if you get the right writer to tackle the subject. I for one would love to see Brawn and The Thing duke it out over a misunderstanding.

    Why do people always want to see the good guys fight each other because of a misunderstanding? Am I the only one who wants to see good guys fighting bad guys rather than among themselves?

    I prefer my heroes to work together, not "Good guy meets good guy, let's fight".

    Same here. It's unfortunate though that it's so prevalent right now. Avengers vs X-Men, and then we're getting that Justice League vs Justice League thing in the upcoming Trinity War. I long for the days of Crisis, where you even had good guys and and bad guys to take down an even greater villain.

    I think it depends on how people view superheroes. Do they view them as "characters" with personalities, or as "powers and abilities" with flashy costumes?

    It does depend on certain people. I used to hear a lot of people who'd just call Flash the fast guy, or Cyclops the guy who could shoot lasers out of his eyes etc. However, I think the recent Marvel movies have really done a lot to emphasize that there's a character behind the suit, and not just a guy who uses his superpowers like say, the old Superfriends cartoon.

    See, what I really liked in JLA/Avengers were the character bits, even in battle. Stuff like Hawkeye thinking he could trick the Flash with his boomerang arrows like he used to do with the Whizzer but failing, Batman and Captain America quickly deciding to end their own combat, Wonder Woman trying to avenge her mother's honor when fighting Hercules etc. Those bits were what I liked. Not the big one all the fanboys keep limiting JLA/A to, i.e. "Superman defeated Thor". That one left me completely cold.

    A few ways it could work:

    Nightbeat teams up with Batman to solve a rash of robberies that leave even the great Detective stumped.

    Optimus Prime and Superman band together to stop Darkseid's forces from conquering a small planet full of pre-industrial civilisation.

    Lex Luthor and Swindle become rivals in technology firms and begin a game of businessman's one-up-man ship.

    Still forced, but leagues above "Autobot A versus superhero B".

    Well its why I'm not a writer; the rule of cool often overrides my common sense, which is bad.

    No. I don't like superheroes, so I'd prefer if they stayed away from Transformers.

    I like superheroes. I also like Transformers.

    But I also like fries. And I like chocolate. But I don't think fries and chocolate mix well.

    THIS. Superheroes are dumb; leave them in their own books.

    And if you put capes together with TFs, it would be the same as the TF/GI Joe books, where you get the privilege of watching overpowered squishies beating the crap out of the poor little helpless robots. :rolleyes2 

    That's a smart way of looking at it. +1
