In American superhero comic books, a team-up is when two superheroes or superhero teams who usually do not appear together fight crime together.[1]

Overview[edit]

Team-ups can either happen within one of the character's main series or in their own separate series. Team-up series generally work in one of three ways: The same characters teaming up every issue, one character teaming up with a rotating second character, or two different characters teaming up every issue.

A recurring theme of team-ups is that when two superheroes meet for the first time they usually fight each other.
