It's got a few cool moments but after issue 3 it just drags on.


The DC Universe was such a mess that COIE was needed to try and fix it. It didn't work.

The story itself (COIE) was pretty awesome.

How can an event that doesn't have Superman be the right choice?

Because Superman wins. Superman always wins.

That says something to IG because Perez didn't leave COIE in middle.

And hello there marvel zombie.

At least DC tried to fix things.

Marvel just doesn't care. They messed up things even worse with their time travel and "what if's", and they dealt with that by saying "Doesn't count!" Doombots/clones, massive retcons, and alt timelines over reboots.

So now time travel = new universe, every time. Even in The Reigning, where Thor remembers everything he did, it's still an "alternate reality" because of the gimmick writing where future Wolverine dies to pull in fans every new comic launch..

The delusions of a fanboy. Superman didn't win at the box office with Justice league. He didn't win against Batman in Batman v. Superman either. Your fanboyism isn't how to debate. Marvel has won the war over public perception. It isn't close, kiddo.

COIE made it into the top 10 with 867 votes. Kingdom Come at #7.

https://www.cbr.com/comic-book-top-storylines-9-7/

quote:
Crisis on Infinite Earths was both a love letter to the past of DC Universe while also the formation of a “new” DC Universe.

Marv Wolfman and George Perez put the DC Universe into a position where worlds were dying and realities were shattering. This allowed the pair to use a cast of literally thousands as they explored the vast realms of DC’s comic history in a sprawling epic with more than one “Ultimate Battle Between Good and Evil.”

The devices pushing this plot forward are the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor, one a benevolent being who was studying the DC Universe – the other a madman who wants to destroy the Multiverse, the backbone of DC’s multiple Earths set-up (which allowed DC to separate their Golden Age creation from their Silver Age counterparts, but also allowed them to integrate comics they bought from other publishers without having to splice them together with their existing heroes).

In a battle this epic, deaths were bound to happen, and this story was SO big that two very big names saw their end – Superman’s cousin, Supergirl, and Barry Allen, the Silver Age Flash.

in terms of sheer historical merit, IG is...nothing, and coie set a standard that every mega-event afterwards has tried to follow. it literally began the era of mega stories. as far as enjoyability--perez has never been a fave of mine. too text heavy. he doesn't let the artwork do the talking as much as others do and did. it was a bit of a chore to read. as far as the ig arc--i sort of liked it, but never found there to be any real suspense. the IG made thanos more powerful than everyone. it is the epitome of a plot device loss. some cool battle scenes but i've always found it overrated in terms of story.

the 2-part thanos quest was BY FAR the coolest part of that arc to me. the ending and the story itself was meh. /shrug

Im surprised sinestro War was at 20+
I agree that Watchmen is overrated. Although, with Doomsday clock around, I can see the voting being slightly impacted by it.
