After Superman and Batman, probably the easiest comics character to drop into random crossovers is Judge Dredd. The Judge–an iconic British creation who officially patrols as judge, jury and executioner on the streets of the dystopian futurescape Mega-City One, for the unfamiliar–is a pretty basic character. He never removes his helmet, carries a ludicrous amount of guns and ammo and has a…

When it finally released in 1988, it would only see a 3-week…
