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.

I don’t view Bat-Mite as a villain, so this may be a team-up between a “good guy” and a bonafide “bad guy.”

The Invaders are being controlled by the evil Red Skull and must battle the newly-formed Liberty Legion (aka Roy Thomas' Justice Society homage!).

It looks as though Captain America is probably going to be working for the villains on this cover, even if he's not actually working with them.  Hopefully, that's close enough to count.

Somebody had to post this one

It's fairly common to see Scrooge McDuck trying to get the villainous Beagle Boys jailed, or them trying to steal from him.  Here's a cover where they seem to be working together...

..and here's one where they're at least peacefully coexisting as they both enjoy (?) a nice day on the beach.

This reminds me of the covers showing Yosemite Sam unarmed and sweetly interacting with Bugs and Dafffy.

In that same vein

Red Kryptonite makes Superman become King Kull's ultimate weapon! Can the World's Mightiest Mortal stop the deranged Man of Steel with a Single Word?

Power Girl seems less than delighted to find herself working with Harley Quinn in Harley's own title.

She must have become resigned to it, though, when they got a joint mini-series.

This is another stretch, but consider:

Luthor pays to fly Lane and Kent to an event.

He tries to pay Superman after testing his abilities by staging a crime.

Only at that point does it become clear they are not going to be on the same side.

Another occasion when Superman and Luthor (and Batman) worked together.
