Comic Summary: Once upon a time, there were two entities… brothers, if you will… that were the Yin and Yang of each other. A giant battle ensued and their essence was spread throughout creating new universes. One universe that was created houses heroes such as Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman while the other universe is the home of Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor. These brothers forgot the other one existed and all was well. But that changed when they became aware of each other and no longer became unique. In order to “get rid” of the other, each brother selected champions from their respective universes to compete in a series of challenges. The loser would no longer cease to exist, meaning an entire universe will disappear. It becomes a fight for survival and a right to live. What results is something even more spectacular and the birth of a new universe… the Amalgam Universe. It becomes even more complicated when this universe's most powerful being—Doctor Strangefate—tries to make sure that his world is the only universe that survives.
