There's also Spawn/Batman, which was written by Frank Miller and is closer to how he writes now than what made him famous.

As a general rule, I tend to stay away from any crossovers involving Superman and another Marvel superhero fighting one another. The perfect example was Thor/Superman in the JLA/Avengers crossover. Notwithstanding battle forum rules that FEATS in continuity are the ultimate deciding factor to determine what a character is capable of, etc...from a purely business standpoint, Stan Lee had it figured out. Saw him on an episode of "Comic Book Men" recently and the question was asked who is stronger, Thor or Hulk? Stan's response? Try and make it end in a draw. Simple, but sage counsel. This way, you avoid pissing off fans of either character. Writer bias is left out of the equation (YES, writer's can be fanboys too!). And finally, from a business standpoint, you set up future crossover for years to come. Don't think I'm right? Examine the Hulk/Thor rivalry that has existed for decades. Until recently, fights between these two could generally be called a draw. And the fight, to this day, generally, draws a crowd and stirs excitement on the part of fans.
Interestingly, the 1997 crossover with Superman and the Silver Surfer? Those two NEVER fought. It's almost as if DC said, "Okay. You got us on this one. He is clearly more powerful than Supes. But we will never show that."
And it has a summon system like FF does, FF type movesets and abilities, the original characters are all made by the FF staff, the magic is based and named off of the ones from FF.
Hey! No one's asking you to smell it.
You might have to be an 80's baby to remember but there was this PSA cartoon special called Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. Basically this kid who likes to smoke joints and steal his dad's beer gets a visit from ALF (the animated version), Alvin, Simon & Theodore (The Chipmunks), Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Slimer, Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger, The Smurfs, The Muppet Babies, Michelangelo (the Ninja Turtle), Garfield and Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
You can definitely find it on youtube for those who haven't seen it. It kind of reminds me of the ending scene from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I don't know if it's been mentioned yet or not but JLA vs X-Men was the worst. The lineup was:
Green Lantern (Kyle)
It was PIS and SMvsFL of epic proportions. The worst was Bishop stalemating Martian Manhunter.
All this when just the previous issue, Batman was dancing all around them easily.
Aquaman vs. Cannonball was sadly the most even fight of the lot, I think, and those two powersets are too lopsided to make an interesting fight scene out of... either Cannonball KO's Aquaman in the first hit, or Aquaman KO's Cannonball as soon as he stops blasting.

It's a lie! My pants were off the entire time!
