The Shared Universe Part 2: Putting All The Toys On The Bed

Marvel and DC are both massive. They have dozens of comic book series that rise and fall. Characters crossover from book to book. Interestingly enough, it wasn't until the mid-80's when Marvel and DC really kicked them into high gear with "Secret Wars" and "Crisis on Infinite Earths" respectively to include ALL their characters in one massive story

Last time I talked about how TV shows can share a universe. This time I'll talk about how superheroes do it (I'll be talking mostly about Secret Wars since I'm kinda Crisised-out).
