Attack on Titan Crossing Over with Marvel Universe in Japan

Attack on Titan Main

Attack on Titan fans, rejoice! Your favorite behemoths are about to make an appearance in the Marvel Universe in Japan.

It's not every day you see comics and manga crossing over in such obvious ways, especially when it comes to hot properties like Spider-Man and Attack on Titan. But that appears to be exactly what's happening, at least in the Japanese comic market, with Attack on Titan colliding with the Marvel Universe.

C.B. Cebulski, Senior Vice President of Creative & Creator Development at Marvel, tweeted the announcement today, with an accompanying image to go with it, stating the crossover would be happening in Japan, but giving few additional details to go with it other than the fact that it will be running in just two weeks.

The image depicts Spider-Man high-tailing it away from two rampaging Titans from the popular anime and manga series, though without context it's tough to decipher if this is going to be a singularly Spidey-focused story or how much of Attack on Titan it's going to encompass. What's more, as Titan fans may attest, both of those specific beasts look a bit familiar.

Whatever the case may be, it's an interesting turn of events but not too surprising given the franchise's breakout success across the globe. Hopefully, whatever Marvel has planned for this crossover will make its way into English and other languages so all fans can enjoy it.

Uh-huh.

*glances at EA HQ, sees it isn't covered in ice*

Well, hell hasn't frozen over yet, so this clearly isn't the sign of the apocalypse I initially thought it was.

So, yeah, that's a thing that's going to happen. Interesting. I mean, Marvel Zombies is also a thing, so weird ass cross-overs/alternate timelines shouldn't surprise me anymore.

But I still am. Attack on Titan isn't exactly the first popular Japanese IP that springs to mind when I consider a marvel cross-over, but ok.

Why?

Attack on Titans titans do not work in a modern setting (the one of Marvel comics... most of the time).
They wont last against even a WW1 army, nor the one of a very poor 3rd world country.

Not saying comics are logical (they arent), but the Titans are way out of their league... even without Spiderman into the mix.

It all depends on numbers and how fast. A couple of titans would not be a big deal in modern Earth.

A good 100 appearing all at once would cause quite a bit of damage before they could be put down, even with supers. The big thing is the "all at once" part. Especially if it's a large number spread all over the globe. Hundred thousand? A million? Even with modern weaponry and supers, the chaos that the titans would cause if they suddenly appeared, combined with their numbers and being spread out all over the world would make them more of a credible threat.

Will have to wait and see how it plays out.

We're heading into deep lore here guys, everyone strap on tight!

But really, "ok" is all I can say. Can't really see how AoT will profit from it. It'll just be some fun thing that happened, I guess.

this... this is so out there i have nothing to say but HA~???

'A fun thing'

~Remembers the Titans eating people alive~

Ah yes, such fun, fun times.

OT: The art looks cool... don't really know what else to say.

It does help that it looks like they are attacking in a city (99% sure it's going to be New York) which would make things a lot more complicated. In an open field, were the the military could just blast away at the things without worry, and use attack helicopters from essentially any angle to get at their necks, the Titans would die. If they just appear in the middle of New York, things would get messy.

The military can't just blast them with explosives at will, there are to many civilians that would cause to much property damage. Aircraft and choppers can't fly around freely. The police, with their small arms shooting from the ground, would have a really hard time taking down any Titans, even if they did know the neck is the weak spot.

Double Post. :P

Ok, I'm down with this. Be an interesting experiment at least. Wonder if some of the other Marvel team will show up at some point.

Charcharo:
Why?

Because it's comic books and if it exists, sooner or later it will be in a crossover with something else that exists.

This is not as weird as Judge Dredd, I'm pretty sure that if you dig deep enough there is a cameo or a full cross over from everything ever in Judge Dredd at some point, although my favourite one is vs Aliens, special mention has to go to Dredd/Batman (multiple times!) and the infamous Dredd vs Everyone (spoiler, no one is above the law)...

Well... this is an unexpected crossover......

Remember a tank does not even need to shoot at a titan to kill it... it is absolutely immune to anything a Titan can do, is faster then a titan, more maneuverable then a titan, several times heavier...
All you need is a few tanks to crush the Titans. Failing that, Tank guns can hit a watermelon size object from over 3 KM... whilst moving... at almost full speed.

Also, modern guns have nothing in common (power wise) with what the bozos of the manga use. The (american) police can turn titans into cheese far too easily.

Deploying Tanks and APCs + military personnel + at most a gunship is enough to completely reclaim the AoT world :P

Ohh of coarse I know why mate :P It is just strange to me. Would have chosen something else personally.

Though a "Liberation War" esque outcome would be sweet for me.

Then the titan regenerates and gets back up. That's not discounting the possibility, especially in a city like New York, of the Titan knocking the tank off it's treads (I'm not sure of their strength overall, but that was a huge-ass boulder a certain Aberrant Titan was carrying.)

Also, modern guns have nothing in common (power wise) with what the bozos of the manga use. The (american) police can turn titans into cheese far too easily.

Problem is, that won't kill them. That's why they stopped using small arms against titans. Bullets, even if they could over-penetrate, cannot stop a Titan.

That's what makes the Titans do dangerous in their own series: BS-hax regeneration and a weak spot that's not readily apparent. I'm not saying a modern world can't defeat the Titans, especially if they're not having to deal with them on the scale they do in AoT, but it's gonna take a while for them to compile the intelligence needed to kill them, and they can eat a lot of people before then.

When a 60-70 ton monster of a vehicle that you cant damage no matter what you do (Titans arent even close to the strength nor the mass to even bend the armor on those monstrosities.) runs you over or shoots a 40 megajoule HE or canister shell at you, you are dead. That is basically annihilation. Their weakspot in the neck will be destroyed completely... along with most of their body.

That is more power then several of their cannons at once. Much more power. If they had the tech to make such machines in the manga, it would be a short and uninteresting manga :P

That boulder wasnt nearly as heavy as an Abrams.

Better penetration and superior damage from extremely high rate of fire and accurate weapons means massed fire will eventually ventilate their weak spots... that is what I meant.

To be fair, the infestation we see in the manga is completely impossible against the modern world. But for arguments sake, it would not matter even if they did. Just more ammunition expended. Hell, even my countries military would be able to reclaim the world :P
Most of the modern weapons dont really care for their neck weak spot. It is the machine guns/PDWs that would benefit from that knowledge. Nothing massed AP fire cant handle.

Cool! The military in Attack on Titan are already Spider-Man with jetpacks and large knives(which is super cool), it's why everyone were pestering the Spider-Man 2 guy about it during the kickstarter for Energy Hook.

I'm not really into the constant spinoffs and crossovers superhero comic books do, but Attack on Titan has a lot of that stuff for some reason, and this is one of the most fitting match-ups I could imagine.

Unless the wormhole that unleashes the Titans into the Marvel Universe is one of those tech killers. Then it's Titans versus a pre-industrial world.. albeit with supers.

When a 60-70 ton monster of a vehicle that you cant damage no matter what you do (Titans arent even close to the strength nor the mass to even bend the armor on those monstrosities.)

At the scale of the bigger titans, you don't have to even scratch the armor to mission-kill it, a tank knocked onto it's side or back isn't going anywhere or doing much. And amid the skyscrapers of New York City, a Titan can actually get close enough to do just that.

runs you over or shoots a 40 megajoule HE or canister shell at you, you are dead. That is basically annihilation. Their weakspot in the neck will be destroyed completely... along with most of their body.

Only if the overpressure wave counts as destroying the relevant part. Otherwise, you just blow a big hole in the torso, and it will just regenerate.

That is more power then several of their cannons at once. Much more power. If they had the tech to make such machines in the manga, it would be a short and uninteresting manga :P

It's not power that kills the titans, but precision. That's why you can shoot a titan with a cannon to no lasting effect if you don't hit it in the right place, but kill it with a pair of swords if you do.

That boulder wasnt nearly as heavy as an Abrams.

Check the scene in question again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhxvYtjPqdg
The diameter of that boulder was roughly equal to the Titan's size. At fifteen meters tall, that makes over 1700 cubic meters in volume for the roughly spherical rock. Going by most common rock densities, that's heavier than damn near any tank you care to name.

Better penetration and superior damage from extremely high rate of fire and accurate weapons means massed fire will eventually ventilate their weak spots... that is what I meant.

The problem with spray-n-pray is that you eventually run out of ammunition. And mere ventilation won't work. You have to either completely remove or destroy the weak spot. Worse, massed-fire kills will obscure the Titans' weak spot, forcing the expenditure of even more ammunition. Not too much of a problem in the case of a single incursion, but that will make your planetary liberation hard on the logistics until they find some locals that don't want to eat them.

This is neat and all... but call me when DBZ crosses over with DC. You all know why. I don't even have to explain myself.

Welp! The Titans are screwed!

Eh, either way it should still be fun to see the Marvelverse fight the Titans and it'll probably be a lot of fun.

Possible, but I am not sure if we gotten enough information from the show to really prove one way or another. Titans are very light for their size (explaining how they don't crush themselves) and are fragile, but we haven't really seen the upper limit of their lifting capabilities. A six meter Titan, I would highly doubt, but one ten stores tall? On the the other hand, they may just completely ignored entirely sealed tanks, we don't really know how they immediately tell a human away from animals.

I have also looked it up, and New York does not have large amounts of military units ready with tanks on standby ( https://www.google.com/maps/search/closest+military+base+new+york/@40.7472598,-74.0741339,10z ). Of the military bases by the city, most of them are bay defenses, such as a few Coast guard bases, which is useless at defending a threat WITHIN the city itself. Also, the closest base with land vechiles (namely this one: https://www.google.com/maps/place/US+Army+Department/@40.7268986,-74.0385443,11z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1sclosest+military+base+new+york!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0x877f0980c646c775 ) only appears to have humvees, no tanks in sight. I imagine Marvel's New York is basically the same, although that does bring up more questions, since the city receives a major attack every month or so since it is the headquarters to much of Marvel's biggest Superheroes.

Basically it is a problem of knowing what a Titan can do.
On the one hand, it seems the gates were enough to keep almost all titan types out. Even ones about as strong as Eren's titan.
On the other hand they can carry a big ass rock.

That gate cant keep a modern battle vehicle out. It can just go backwards and enter through the WALL.

Then again manga artists are not known for consistency in physics or ability :(.

Anyways, the problem with the rest of your points are, that you forget tanks are just much much faster then titans. With a higher mass and extreme firepower.

When a 40 megajoule High Explosive shell hits you and you dont have over 1meter of RHA armor (or equivalent protection) you are vaporized. Remember, there is a difference between sabot rounds and HE shells. Sabot would just penetrate through all titans in a roll. HE will make sure that is the end of it.

Again, the strength they exhibit changes all the time :P

There are things that dont need precision to kill. I do know precision is important for Titans, I read the manga (can spoil you if you are only with the anime :P ... so have to be careful).

You seem to believe that they either learn the weak spot and dont engage or dont ever learn the weak spot. That would take time. The first encounters are just going to result in an insane amout of fire putting them down due to destroying the neck.

Ammunition is not a problem for the US military :P.

*Not G. Ivingname raises an interesting point. They probably cant see or smell a human inside a battle machine

I could be wrong here but don't Titans become inactive at night?

Basically, a Titan just keeps on rampaging and eating people without tiring. Let them loose in a place like New York city, and if they can't be contained there's more than enough people to keep them rampaging till sunset. Then it's experimentation time for the humans!

I have to agree here. The titans are all naked super-beings, and would be nearly helpless against anything flying. Given that this is Marvel, that means Tony Stark could own them all with impunity. Seriously, he'd be scoring the easiest headshots in history.

It varies from Titan to Titan. Some are able to keep going for hours and others just can't. Plus there is the whole event in the manga where a bunch of Titans completely ignore that rule due to special circumstances.

I......almost feel bad for the Titans.

Wolverine - walking knife that they can't kill and eating him will just put him straight at their weakpoint.

Iron Man - Easiest killshots ever.

Hulk - HULK SMASH!

Thor - Does completely annihilating the neck in a single swing count?

Magento - Flying metal razor blades of DEATH.

Modern US Military - Apaches and F-35s because LOL?

Etc. Etc.

I mean seriously....it doesn't even seem fair.

So, who is this the shark jumping moment for? Attack on Titan, Marvel or just Spider-Man?

Leemaster777:

Just as whether or not the astronauts have weapons to fight the cavemen, a simple question can help clear the path to another's answer. Do Goku's attacks count as magic?

OT: I can see a few interesting scenarios being worked out of this. Maybe something small like seeing the modern civilian react to this even though I doubt a small event like that will be explored, it's just one of many. I'm looking forward to this.

There would be a lot of trouble early on though. Unless Tony's tech can actually scan and locate the kill point, he is not going to be making any kill shots because he will go to all of the traditional ones which just won't work. Only heroes who go on an overkill approach would work initially and that may make things worse as people come to incorrect conclusions.

Thor will have a problem from attacking from the front which, while incredibly damaging, means nothing if the attacks don't actually go all the way through. Can't make a judgement on lightning though.

Hulk, okay, I agree there partially. If he decides a downed titan is a dead one then that is a problem since I imagine there is a good chance he will hit everything but the weak point on his first few hundred titans.

Magneto will probably have an easy time if only because he would just test until he found the kill point. Either that or just trap them.

Wolverine would have issues too though since he won't let himself be grabbed and will likely go for the face or chest. He may decide to go for decapitation but unless you actually cut out the weak point, a titan can recover from such injuries.

The military might actually have a better run than the others if only because they can collect data and if things get really bad just increase the payload of the missiles until the titans stop getting up.

But yeah, once the weakness is found then the heroes would start doing well.

Titan swallows Spider-man I bet.

Problem is, that won't kill them. That's why they stopped using small arms against titans. Bullets, even if they could over-penetrate, cannot stop a Titan.

That's what makes the Titans do dangerous in their own series: BS-hax regeneration and a weak spot that's not readily apparent. I'm not saying a modern world can't defeat the Titans, especially if they're not having to deal with them on the scale they do in AoT, but it's gonna take a while for them to compile the intelligence needed to kill them, and they can eat a lot of people before then.

When a 60-70 ton monster of a vehicle that you cant damage no matter what you do (Titans arent even close to the strength nor the mass to even bend the armor on those monstrosities.) runs you over or shoots a 40 megajoule HE or canister shell at you, you are dead. That is basically annihilation. Their weakspot in the neck will be destroyed completely... along with most of their body.

That is more power then several of their cannons at once. Much more power. If they had the tech to make such machines in the manga, it would be a short and uninteresting manga :P

That boulder wasnt nearly as heavy as an Abrams.

Better penetration and superior damage from extremely high rate of fire and accurate weapons means massed fire will eventually ventilate their weak spots... that is what I meant.

To be fair, the infestation we see in the manga is completely impossible against the modern world. But for arguments sake, it would not matter even if they did. Just more ammunition expended. Hell, even my countries military would be able to reclaim the world :P
Most of the modern weapons dont really care for their neck weak spot. It is the machine guns/PDWs that would benefit from that knowledge. Nothing massed AP fire cant handle.

This discussion assumes that these are the same Titans that we see in Attack on Titan, and not, for example, just a Marvel-ified version. There are giant people in the Marvel universe, after all - Pym particles work in mysterious ways! - and, while not usually unstoppable, it's always shown that they're a bit of trouble. Hell, for all we know, these Titans are some kind of spawn of Galactus!

I wouldnt worry about the Marvel Verse being curb-stomped. The creative clique at Marvel is just going to milk this for what its worth and just do an ass-pull resolution out of nowhere not unlike what they do in their yearly mega-events. The Scarlet Witch could just fart out "no more Titans!" and that would be the end of it.

Armadox:
Unless the wormhole that unleashes the Titans into the Marvel Universe is one of those tech killers. Then it's Titans versus a pre-industrial world.. albeit with supers.

That strikes me as somewhat interesting.
