Marvel/DC Crossovers

The Russo Brothers are developing a documentary series for the Quibi mobile video platform based on the book 'Slugfest' which chronicled the rivalry between DC and Marvel Comics (Newsarama).  

The key issues listed below are from when DC/Marvel joined forces and introduced their characters to each other and their respective universes.  Naturally, there is also some character kidnapping that happened throughout the years
