This is a collaboration piece between me and :iconcomfortlove: - we drew it together, some characters hers and some mine, and I colored it. The original was done for the Heroes Convention art auction, was a staggering 24”x32”, and was done entirely in Copic marker by both of us working at the same time. We’d sit side-by-side, markering away and watching Game of Thrones. You can see that piece in her gallery here:

Before we started the marker, we scanned the lineart in pieces and reassembled it in Photoshop so we could do a color version. The result... is this. It took some time, but I’m extremely happy with it. We also swapped out Batwoman for the new Batgirl and Spider-Woman’s old costume for her new one (neither of which were around when we were making the original). It was always going to be impossible to fit everybody we wanted, so we set some rules – only 1-2 characters from a given group/team (so it wouldn’t just be a million X-Men and Bat-people), try to have at least 1 representative of all the major teams/books, start with the biggest marquee characters and work down from there, whether they’re currently alive is less important than their historical significance, but where possible aim for who’s most relevant today, try to have a diverse array of characters in terms of power, stature, personality, and build, and maintain equality between DC and Marvel. 

The final lineup is as follows:

Front (L to R): Scarlet Witch, Batgirl, Mera, Ms. Marvel, Black Cat, Storm, Big Barda, Wonder Woman, Mary Marvel, Black Widow, Valkyrie, Catwoman, She-Hulk, Invisible Woman, Monica Rambeau, Power Girl, The Question, Captain Marvel, Vixen, Zatanna, Hellcat, Phoenix, and Wasp up front.

Back: Supergirl, Raven, Aya, Rogue, Star Sapphire/Carol Ferris, Firestar, Hawkgirl, Starfire, Spider-Woman

A masterpiece! I think, my favourite of DC is Wonder Woman and my favourite of Marvel is Miss Marvel.

Does anyone know of a All man one? I’m trying to find one since the release of Endgame. One of my friends found one of all the women in the MCU and I though one of all the men would be cool too. This I also a fantastic job! Is it digital?

Do you have copies of this available to purchase as prints?

I like how the two companies are mished-mashed together rather than separated with each taking a different side.

It's the way I prefer it. If you divide them, everybody assumes it's a "DC versus Marvel" thing, and I hate hero vs hero stuff. They should be working together, not against each other!

Thank you! You get how heroes work!

Do I see Amanda Waller amongst the crowd?
AdamWithers's avatar
Nah, that's Vixen. My Amanda Waller would be old-school, heavy-set, untouchable hardass Amanda Waller. :)

I gotcha. The hairstyle just made me think of her. I'm fairly new to comics to be honest.
