Ok, how about this for an idea.  We take it in turns to post a favourite (British spelling) comic cover every day.  This went really well on the comic fan website that I used to frequent.  What we tried to do was find a theme or subject and follow that, until we all got bored with that theme.  I'd like to propose a theme of letters of the alphabet. So, for the remainder of October (only 5 days) and all of November, we post comic cover pictures associated with the letter "A".  Then in December, we post covers pertaining to the letter "B".  The association to the letter can be as tenuous as you want it to be. For example I could post a cover from "Adventure Comics" or "Amazing Spider Man".  However Spider Man covers can also be posted when we're on the letter "S".  Adventure Comic covers could also be posted when we're on the letter "L" if they depict the Legion of Super Heroes.  So, no real hard, fast rules - in fact the cleverer the interpretation of the letter, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

And it's not written in stone that we have to post a cover every day. There may be some days when no cover gets posted. There's nothing wrong with this, it just demonstrates that we all have lives to lead.

If everyone's in agreement I'd like to kick this off with one of my favourite Action Comic covers, from January 1967. Curt Swan really excelled himself here.

Family, what are you gonna do?

I know Venom's character has changed into more of an anti-hero, but there's no question these guys started out as enemies, and, to my knowledge, they've never really been friends:

This cover shows Superboy's first meeting with the formerly-villainous Dev-Em after the "Knave from Krypton" travelled to the 30th century, reformed, and became a member of the Inter-Stellar Counter-Intelligence Corps.  He subsequently fought alongside the Legion on a number of occasions.

Has the Invisible Girl joined forces with that H2O Homewrecker, the Sub-Mariner?

It's not entirely apparent from the cover, but Green Lantern and Star Sapphire are temporarily cooperating during this story:

This cover seems to imply that Superman and Luther are a team, and Batman and Joker are a team.
