Justice League v. Avengers?

(art by Hanna Friederichs). We saw The Avengers last night–kinda long and the special effects in the last third of the movie too easily betrayed their origins, but it was diverting. I liked Thor more. As a child, I found the Marvel Comics universe a cooler and harsher place than Superman’s DC world, and on this Mothers’ Day I’m remembering one summer day when the neighborhood mothers made us all costumes so we could have an elaborate Justice League of America pageant. I think I was Green Lantern, probably because no one among the bigger kids wanted him, poor guy.
