JLA/Avengers #2 - 2003

"A Contest of Champions" by Kurt Busiek and George Perez.

The oft-delayed, long-time-in-the making team-up between the JLA and the Avengers finally took place in 2003, in a four-part extravaganza.

By the second issue, more of each company's heroes were being worked into the story, and its here we get our first glimpse of The Phantom Stranger:
...hard to see him, but he's there, standing on a white platform with his back to the reader.

But fear not--the Stranger plays a much bigger part in the next issue. To be continued!

I should dig this out and re-read it. Perez' art is beautiful, even if the story is totally unmemorable.
