The Question of the Week:
This week’s question was submitted by Harvey Locust: What is the most important crossover to you? Whether it introduced one of your favorite characters, changed the outlook for a group, or rewrote the entire universe, we all have a major event that we like more than the rest for one reason or another. What’s that event for you? In other words, not which one is considered the most momentous historically, but the event that’s most important to you personally.
