    Default So, now DC/Wildstorm have Freddy, Jason & Leatherface

    DO you think it's possible that any weird crossover/one-shots might happen in the DCU (Vertigo maybe?), or will they just be limited to the Authority & Co.

    Personally I would love to see Lobo & Jason fight, see how the JLA deal with Freddy etc.

    Anyone else had any thoughts on this?

    Freddy, being a creature of the mind, could very easily be one that crosses all dimensional/publishin boundaries, being a threat to all the characters of the various imprints. I don't give a damn about the other 2.

    Leatherface would make for an interesting Batman opponent.

    He could become a DC version of Nightmare. Undoubtedly, though, he won't stick around long.

    I'm a complete horror nerd in addition to being a comics nerd.

    I'd love to own a Leatherface vs. Batman match-up sheerly for the novelty vaule, but the truth is that the two genres have vastly different rules. You can't really mix superheroes with horror icons. The whole point of a horror icon is that he MIGHT win. He might kill the hero. Suspension of disbelief is gone if he's fighting Batman. You never feel scared. You never feel like Batman is in danger.

    Or, as usually happens with any crossover, there will be some kind of draw.

    I could see a JLA Mini-series with Freddy Krueger. It could be very good. He's killing people in the dreamworld and Sandman comes to the JLA to stop him.

    Well, we always knew who Jason Voorheis' mother was; but never got to meet the father of this un-dying terror: Ras al Guhl!!!

    Dude has a point. It would have to be an Elseworlds kind of deal where DC was willing to kill a hero or two. And marketed as such. Then you get into the sticky subject of dorks not wanting to buy stories that aren't "real."

    I disagree. I like to see "victims" who can turn the turn the tables or fight back against monster/killer/etc. The way I see it, Horror Icons never really lose, and that kills it for me. Oh sure, they're defeated or chased off at the end of the movie, but you know they'll be back.

    I'd love to see something where Leatherface is given a taste of his own medicine. Sure Batman wouldn't get mortally wounded (but he can get banged up pretty hardcore), and you could pick out the redshirts in the story a mile away, but I'd like to see it.

    Batman has already had crossovers with Tarzan and Predator. A match against Jason, Leatherface or Freddy wouldn't be that much of a strech. Since Batman has such a strong 'no kill' policy, it would be fascinating to see how he would stop someone like Jason.

    I'd like to see a Freddy/Superman matchup. Superman always needs good villains and he would be really vulnerable against Freddy.

    I wanna see Majestic put the smackdown on Leatherface just because I'm tired of having a the monster alway be so frikken powerful it's time for them to be scared and the reason i want amjestic si becasue he won't shudder at the thought of ripping his freaking head off! Hell get Midnighter to take out Jason that shouldn't be hard he kicked that guy head off in his first issue.

    O and in case anyone cares over at the Superhero Hype boards there's a DC vs. Marvel tournament where this guy posts matches and one of teh matches was Dream (Sandman) vs. Nightmare vs. Freddy and Dream came out on top.

    We never got to meet him on-screen, but it's still canon (via the Hawkes novelization) that Jason's father is Elias.
