Crossovers I Want To See: Jason Vs. Wolverine

I’ve only done one of these before, but have been meaning to do more. Frankly, this is the kind of stuff geek dreams are made of right? And even when the long awaited crossovers do happen they’re either lopsided towards one franchise (Freddy vs. Jason) or depending on fan votes for fight results (DC Vs. Marvel) or just not good at all (Alien Vs. Predator). I’ve been pitting slashers against superheroes in my head for a surprisingly short period of time considering how long I’ve been a fan of both (just the last year or two, really). The idea of pitting two seemingly indestructable killing machines against each other actually came from a figure pairing on my desk when I still worked at the old ToyFare offices. Here you have a 3 3/4-inch Hasbro Wolverine in Jacket from the Wolverine: Origins line and a 3 3/4-inch Jason Voorhees from Mezco’s Cinema Of Fear series facing off on my kitchen tables. On my desk, they went from fighting to riding the bulldog that came with the DCUC Lobo SDCC figure from a few years back. In my imagined crossover, though, they would spend the entire comic or movie just slashing the shit out of each other getting angrier and angrier the entire time. Here’s how I see it going down. Wolverine’s on one of his many cross country trips when he finds himself in Crystal Lake. After a day or so of fishing and hunting, Jason shows up to politely ask Wolverine to leave. The pair throw down, but Wolverine doesn’t know what he’s dealing with, so he assumes Jason dies at the end of the battle and heads back to New York. Of course, it’s not nearly that simple, as Jason heals and goes on a trip to New York to exact his revenge using those crazy tracking skills he used to hunt down and kill the Final Girl from the first Friday The 13th in the first sequel (continuity!). Bam, huge fight in NYC between two crazy men with healing abilities. If it’s a comic book, it would only make sense for the rest of the NYC local heroes to get involved and help put a stop to Jason (shouldn’t be a problem for the Avengers–especially if Thor’s around, how friggin’ cool of a few panels would that be? Mallet for machete!–or Fantastic Four). But, if it’s a movie (a boy can dream), they’d continue their fight until the X-Men finally show up to help and probably drop Jason in some freshly poured concrete. Marvel and WildStorm, feel free to contact me. I can easily flesh this story out or come up with a brand spanking new one.
