Ok, rules.. Moment is just that, a moment. When making your list, don't put "Justice". That's not a moment, that's an entire story. Instead pick the one actual moment from that, for example, "The armoured League revealed.". Similarly, a fight is not a moment. Instead put "Thor throwing down the hammer to fight Hulk fairly.". Yeah, you get the point.

So what are your top 10 (5 if 10 is too much) moments in the history of comics? Any comic goes, the big 2, Image, Indy comics, newspaper comics (basically anything you've read that's classified as a comic).

Another Top 10 moment from comics that involved Captain America is in the Infinity Guantlet series when Captain America, who is the last hero left from all the other defeated heroes, goes up to Thanos and says "As long as one man stands against you, you'll never be able to claim victory". Great moment.

Great moment. Another great one from that saga was when Galactus, aspects, and deities address Thanos and he states ," You address omnipotence, tread carefully".

One of the best that I haven't seen mentioned so far in this is when The Joker shot and paralyzed Barbara Gordon in The Killing Joke. The lines he has in that section are great, too.

SpunkySmurph
Probably my favourite is Joker killing Alexander Luthor

One that I haven't seen mentioned is when Gwen Stacy's neck snapped. Powerful.

Not in order.

1) "Now this....this looks like a job for Superman." - E2 Superman's first appearance in Infinite Crisis
2) Flash sacrifice in IC
3) Superboy sacrificing himself and dying in Mon-El's arms
4) Hal snapping Sinestro's neck in Emerald Twilight
5) Hal/Kyle handshake in GL rebirth (a big moment for GL fanboys everywhere)
6) Mon-El, with full knowledge of the consequences, killing the Time Trapper and as a result, ending the universe
7) Superman's death in Lois' arms
8) Captain Marvel's sacrifice in Kingdom Come
9) Kyle finding his girlfriend's cut up body in his refrigerator
10) Darkseid revealed as the mastermind in Great Darkness Saga

Nah , I mean the last few pages on Twelve where loki floats upwards and is walking on thin air while spouting off about how he 'now has to his hands dirty' and there's all flames in the background. It looked fuggin awesome.

Dinalfos
1: Wolverine getting kicked in the teeth by a deer
2: Spiderman unmasked. Seriously, wtf?
3: L getting killed
4: Galactus getting knocked the **** out in Secret Wars I.
5: Thanos (without the IG) slapping Drax and Prof. Hulk like little green bitches
6: Champion getting pimpslapped by Shulkie. Seriously, wtf?
7: The original Captain Marvel's Marvel dying.
8: The final members of the Band of the Hawk getting collectively murdered in hell.
9: Aunt May's first official death (LOL big grin ). Like supes, it could've been higher.
10: Superman's death. It would've been #1, had it not been temporary. Also, the writing sucked. But still....

WHAT. THE . HELL

jawdrop

You can't be serious V ?

It was the WORST thing they did in CW , it made no sense , was completely OOC and was generally the equivalent of pissing on the mans grave.

Now I do disagree with Cap. Marvel getting his own series, but I thought the initial return was pretty cool.

Priest
remember in the Infinity Gauntlet Arc when earth hero's were fighting Thanos?
One of my favorite moments is when Thanos telepoted Thor's mjinor away, and thor reverted back to Eric Masterson. Some how Eric Masterson got a hold of the Mjinor.. and him and Spidey stated to whip Thanos's ass for a little bit...
It seemed like not a great moment but the narration was sweet, and gave me a sense of hope for a while.

But this thread is called "Top 10 moments", not "Top 10 comics"..


I thought it was a cool moment, when Cap. Marv came back and saw the Earth and it's heroes going to shit.



After that one moment, the comic itself wasn't very good.

I notice a fair amount of Joker related stuff in this thread.

Not that I disagre.

IMO, he's one of the best villains out there.
