Q: Since this is Ask Chris #200, what's the best 200th issue in comics? -- @therealdealkern
A: You know, Kern, I'm glad you asked. 200 is a really weird number, especially in comics. It should be a pretty huge deal -- as alert reader Charlotte pointed out in her own question this week, once a comic racks up 200 issues, it's pretty much going to be around forever -- but it doesn't quite have the ring of #100, and even hitting that third century mark seems way more important than breezing through the two. Maybe it's that it feels like a foregone conclusion, that once you've passed that first milestone, the second feels like more of an inevitability than an achievement. But at the same time, there's definitely one issue that sticks out as being everything you want out of an anniversary comic, and that's the subject of this week's column.
I mean, come on. You didn't really think I was going to answer 100 questions again, did you?

Just imagine The World's Greatest Super-Heroes facing off against some evil Robots in Disguise. It sounds unlikely, but apparently a crossover between the Justice League of America and the Transformers almost happened last year, offering up both Optimus Prime as a Green Lantern and a new purpose for Wonder Woman's invisible jet.Pitch art for the project by Phil Jimenez (with co
Wonder Woman and Superman have long seemed like they'd make a nice match -- they both have blue eyes and blue-black hair, they're both superheroes with similar powers, they wear matching costumes. But maybe they look a little too much alike to work? In any case, since one or both of them are usually romantically entangled elsewhe
