Great piece, JB. I really like the characters this person chose for their commission. Can I tell you how jazzed I get looking at a piece with iconic superheroes from both DC and Marvel?  I can only imagine the possibilities.  Guess that's why I'm a sucker for books like JLA/Avengers or Teen Titans/X-Men.

Sweet. I like it for the same reasons that Matt said -- and it's also iconic
characters you've had a hand in, JB (even though you've never done a
monthly Batman title for any extended period of time, I still find your
rendition to be representational of the iconic Batman in my head, so I
consider it to still qualify).

There must be a mistake-Batman's smiling ;)

I'd pick the character I think you drew the best-but they are all so good.

Ahhh, that's a nice one, JB.  But I was a little disappointed when I opened it because I thought I might see something else.

Strangely, and contrarly to Matt & John M it seems, this drawning mixing
both universes makes me think that I feel much more connected to the
MArvel characters. More closer to the characters, like long time friends,
something wich I rarely been able to do with DC characters, whatever great
the stories were. I see the DC characters as much more impressive and
distant. Superman is Superman, whereas Spider-Man is Peter for me, and
Sue, is Sue :) For example I go here : 'oh that's a a nice haircut for Sue !'
whereas I would never think something so 'personnal' concerning DC heroes.

Is this a personal feeling, or some others here relate to this too ?

All of these characters are among my all-time favorites. The only question is: Where are the original X-Men?

Great piece. These commissions just keep getting better and better.

"Is this a personal feeling, or some others here relate to this too ?"

And thus the fourth sign of the Apocalypse has been revealed as I find myself agreeing with Mr. Blot. 

I usually see the Marvel characters and think Reed, Sue, Ben, Johnny, and Peter.  The only one pictured that I don't give his name to is Captain America, but I do think of him as Cap.  I hardly ever, if at all, think of the civilian names of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman when I see them.

You just sold your soul to the Devil, Wayne :)

And I do agree too that Cap is here again an exception. Wich means at the
end 30/40's characters 'vs' 60's ones.

So what does it mean really ? That Steve Rogers or Bruce Wayne got less
personalities than Peter or Sue ? Humm. No. Is there something in the
costumes maybe ? Something inconscious that make a real difference at
the end between 40's characters and 60's ones ? Just wondering...

Well, in fact the non masked Fantastic Four is an obvious reason why we feel
more inclined to call them by their first names.

I have some of the same feelings that Wayne and David have.

The Marvel characters for me are more "friends" (no I am not insane) than the DC ones, even though I admire and enjoy the DC ones.

It would be neat if the buyer decided to get a companion piece of particular villains charging the heroes.

Aren't you down with the New Irony?

No, it just means that Stan, Jack, Steve, and the rest of early Marvel succeeded in what they set out to do - create super-heroes that dealt with some of the same problems in their civilian lives that the readers had as well, which made them more "real" and more "human" to the readers and easier to identify and identify with.  Not that hard to figure out, was it?

Yes, thank you Wayne, I think I knew that, I was trying to go a bit further
than that, especially with Cap as an exception, we see a line drew between
40's and 60's super heroes. That said, you're right, and I may try to dig
further where there is nothing to find out.
