There may never be a film version that combines the DC and Marvel Universes. Luckily, there is fan art which has no qualms mashing copyrighted universes against each other.
DC vs. Marvel is the civil war that everyone wants and that a good fan artist can give the base in an infinite variety. It may never settle the age-old question of which hero is better in a solo fight against each other, but it will generate endless scenarios, stories and possibilities for the future artists and writers daring to commit those ideas to ink, paper and celluloid.
Mustafa Raza, a fan artist based in Islamabad Pakistan, is so intrigued by the similarities of equivalent heroes from the different universes battling each other that he created a whole series of "Mirror Wars" to give them an appropriate battle canvas.
On his Behance page Raza explains the project's genesis:
It's DC vs. Marvel. I always wanted to see the two gigantic franchises collide and as much as they are different from one another they're also very similar, hence it kinda pushed me to make compositions of characters fighting each other that either have similar powers, origins or are at least visually similar (or counterparts of each other). So here it is peeps — your fantasy battle! ENJOY.
I am a little weak on recognizing the lower level heroes, so if you find something wrong let me know in the comments so I can correct it. Some of those that are not in the DC or Marvel Cinematic Universe I definitely had to take a guess on. Thanks for the help!
