Why havn't they made a Marvel versus DC yet?

They've got Marvel versus Capcom games..
DC has several fighting games..
And they do lots of crossovers ANYWAYS..

So why not give the comic book fans what they really want and make a DC versus Marvel fighting game???

the same reasons why they were hesitant to do comic crossovers and why when they do it it's rare

Because the characters are one different scales of strength and power.

It would be the same as Microsoft and Sony working on a next-gen console together. Ain't gonna happen.

I've heard that both companies have discussed it with each other but it just wouldn't work. For one thing as Hulk Power suggested, they are two different "universes" so to speak so you have differences in power and scale.
In fighting games you usually have roughly three "classes", your fast characters, your powerhouse characters and your all rounders. As such, each Marvel and DC character would have to be modified to conform to this. This leads to...
Problem 1: by who's standard do you rank them? Who decides if Spidey would be and all rounder or a speed freak? He's not as fast as the Flash but he is a lot faster than Batman. Should the Hulk do is much damage as someone like Darkseid? Such discussion leads to...
Problem 2: Fanboy conflict. If this game saw the light of day, how many posts would we see that said something like "OMG the Human Torch's fireball should own SupermanZ laser eye attack!!!" Such bickering would probably end up taking the focus away from whether the game was actually any good or not.

It will be a cold day in hell before this game sees the light of day.

Marvel was just as much a part of the development, even though it was Capcom that made the games.

They had just as much say in what was being made in the game. yes

I wouldn't mind. I mean, MvC2 wasn't that balanced overall yet it still was fun to play and was the most competitive 2D fighting game in the US (as an example, Sentinel was the best character in the game compared to characters like Magneto or Thanos who would DESTROY it in the comics). You guys are thinking too much in a comic book sense in my opinion. If they were to make it by Capcom (who unfortunately do not have the license to make the Marvel vs. games anymore), knowing their previous successes with their games, I think it would be great as long as people don't think in a comic book state of mind.

Just my $0.02

They can make a DC and Marvel Crossover Comic book but a Video game is a long shot. Personally, I go with DC as the winner. Marvel characters are overdone. DC characters are better.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: And that comment above is an example of fanboyism
