> Dear Mr Q,
> Look, we've been looking at a 2009 Crisis summer event, and we thought an inter-company crossover event could be of benefit toward both our companies/
> Following a fall 2008 thru Summer 2009 crossover buildup we would exchange with no strings attached, a PERMANENT exchange of characters: From our side: Aquaman, Ray Palmer-Atom (along with the rights to the name "Atom"), Barry Allen Flash "he, however, would need to be re-named", Zatanna, and Red Tornado. In exchange we would ask for- Namor, the Sub-Mariner, the Scarlet Witch, Vision, Yellowjacket, and Quicksilver. These would be the primary characters, many secondary characters would also change hand (to be discussed at a future time) Our accountants consider the primary character exchange as an equitable transaction at the least. This inter-company crossover with identifiable characters switching companies would generate great sales and fan interest (as well as interest in the TV and magazine arenas)

I like the analgous characters selected. I would also add CapMarvel and Shazam.
Here's my take on such an exchange.
Im using the original "Secret Wars" model more than the House of M /Amalgam scenarios. The heroes are gone with NO explanation. Meanwhile the new heroes explore strange worlds (Earth 616/Earth Prime?).
One Year_12 calender months to use the characters however the companies choose. One or more miniseries or maybe no minis it is up to each publisher. Have Vision and YJ join the Titans; have the DC characters in a 12 issue series titled "Lost League"; have Namor battle all of Atlantis. Shazam vs Sentry. Wanda and MartianManhunter get it on?
After one year, the characters would be returned "unharmed" and full memories. Unharmed unless previously agreed upon.
Possible lasting impacts: Forge makes Flash a bionic leg after a fight w/ Logan. Wanda gets preggers. Atom can use Pym particles. Vision takes on Cyborg's brain patterns, Wasp makes Zantanna a new costume ( ala Spidey's black from SW).
