5 Superhero Team-Ups That You Won't Believe Happened!

Unlikely crossovers are one of the coolest things that you can do with superheroes.

Just like when rappers do guest appearances on each other’s albums or footballers go on loan to another club, it’s just neat to see unfamiliar faces team up to see what happens.

Case in point, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher – the feature length animation that’s just been released on DVD. The slick anime-style film (directed by Kenichi Shimizu, known for his work on Afro Samurai and the Street Fighter IV videogame) sees an uneasy alliance between the Punisher and Black Widow as they team up with the Avengers to retrieve stolen SHIELD technology from the Leviathan terrorist group.

As is often the case, the odd couple end up coming to blows (in some superbly animated Japanese-flavoured fight scenes) but their common interest soon sees them throwing bullets and blows in the right direction. As in, directly in the faces of Leviathan’s minions with the help of Iron Man, Hulk and Thor. Check out the explosive action at the bottom of the page!
