Friday Night Fights

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

If an intercompany crossover gets scrapped after 21 pages are pencilled, do Batman and Captain America really fight?

Now, that's not entirely fair. After all, when JLA/Avengers was eventually published, it made the original 1983 plot one of the teams' "annual meetings." Therefore, from a certain point of view, it did happen.

It was in an alternate reality, of course ... but aren't they all?

Bahlactus has all the answers!

[From the unpublished first meeting of the Justice League of America and the Avengers, planned for publication in 1983. Plot by Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas, pencils by George Perez. Reprinted in Avengers/JLA Compendium, 2004.]
