    Uh I'm actually going to nominate The Thanos Imperative

    I really dig the cosmic stuff and this one was both a huge sweeping adventure and also really unsettling when it got into the Cancerverse stuff

    Does that count as an Event? It was basically a six issue miniseries with no tie-ins.

    You know what? I'm also going to nominate Throne of Atlantis, which has been the best traditional New 52 crossover so far. I will respectfully abstain from nominating any other DC events for now.

    Damn, so Doom War can't get nominated? It was self contained, but it did do something pretty big to the Marvel Universe that at least Hickman (and Mayberry) adhered to.

    I mean we really need Geebs to come and make a ruling but I'd think Doomwar and Thanos Imperative would work as events even though they didn't have tie-ins, they were miniseries but clearly designed to have an "event" feeling to them and crossed over a bunch of different characters from different series

    If it counts I'd like to second the nomination for Planet Hulk/World War Hulk.

    World War Hulk would count, but I don't think Planet Hulk was as that's just a long storyline contained in The Incredible Hulk

    I think the only event I liked was Annihilation. Don't know what I'm going to do when the voting opens.

    i have to nominate Civil War. whether you liked it or not, that thing had a lot of impact at the time and also gave us this:

    http://mightygodking.com/i-dont-need-your-civil-war/


    Also nominating Secret Invasion

    This was right when I was interning at Marvel. I remember making graphics and getting inside scoops and everything it was just a blast. I also made some skrull sigs for a lot of people here.

    Thanos Imperative I'd argue as an event. It had a prequel Oneshot before the miniseries, and the reason there were no tie-ins was because GotG and Nova were Cancelled going into it as it was a bookend event to the cosmic universe as it was.

    Also it created this team.

    Plus, i mean considering Secret Wars (the ORIGINAL event) didnt have tie-ins (other than a couple of scenes in the individual comics leading to it, and a couple of comics MUCH later that flashbacked to it), I don't necessarily think Tie-ins should be an absolute necessity.

    Here's my dark horse pick Spider Island

    This was Slott and Ramos just firing on all cylinders, with lots of really neat moments and some fun tie ins.

    I'll second Spider-Island, which I just read over my last semester break.

    Thank you for allowing Doomwar - aka Best Event - onto the ballot, Geebs!

    Also a moment after I submitted my vote I realized that I screwed up my 4th and 5th place votes, but oh well.

    Spider-Men!

    I voted Spider-Men, because it was really, really, REALLY good and the 616 Peter/Miles dynamic is something that I want(And will hopefully get).

    I couldn't vote for Spider-Men because there was only one issue really stood out (When Peter meets MJ/Gwen/Aunt May).

    The rest was just padding.

    Sitting this one out, I realized that I haven't read 5 events in the past 10 years. (Or at least 5 events I liked enough to nominate). I did like Annihilation and its cousins a lot though.

    That run has 4 of the nominations... (Annihilation, Conquest, War of Kings, and Thanos Imperative)

    20) Omega Effect (3 pts)

    19) Throne of Atlantis (4 pts)

    18) War of Kings (10 pts)

    17) Spider-Island (13 pts)

    16) Second Coming (18 pts)

    14) Blackest Night (34 pts)

    14) Doomwar (34 pts)

    13) Thanos Imperative (37 pts)

    12) Civil War (39 pts)


    To this day, Civil War remains one of the more controversial events in history, but it’s hard to deny its significance.

    10) Siege (43 pts)

    Fxi4Che.jpg

    Siege might be one of the shortest events on this list, but it has great art from Oliver Coipel and serves as the climax to a long run of Marvel events leading all the way back to Avengers Disassembled.

    10) Spider-Men (43 pts)

    V0hqWW0.jpg

    Of all the entries on this list, Spider-Men is probably the smallest, in terms of scope. But as the first official crossover between 616 Marvel and the Ultimate universe, Spider-Men is among the most significant. It’s also, much like everything Bendis has done with Ultimate Spider-Man, really goddamned terrific.

    9) Secret Invasion (46 pts)

    3iBtjP3.jpg

    I think this probably has the best concept of any event on the list. The idea of there being Skrull infiltrators throughout the Marvel universe, posing as our favorite heroes is just incredibly compelling.

    8) Final Crisis (54 pts)

    AXNRuY0.jpg

    It was advertised as Grant Morrison’s take on a big event miniseries, and boy, does it deliver on that promise.

    7) World War Hulk (58 pts)

    OcN0Svl.jpg

    The culmination of one of the single greatest Hulk stories of all time in Planet Hulk, World War Hulk brought the Hulk back to Earth in an event so big that it caused one of the single worst arguments I’ve ever seen in Graphic Violence. For that historical significance alone, it certainly deserves a place on this list.

    6) Avengers vs X-Men (59 pts)

    ZT3WRgu.jpg

    This featured the work of some of Marvel’s top writers and artists, and provided the launching point for Marvel NOW!, which is easily one of the most successful relaunches in comics history. It also gave Colossus a pivotal role and he’s the best.

    5) Sinestro Corps War (66 pts)

    ckDTI11.jpg

    The high-water mark for Geoff Johns’s run on Green Arrow, the Sinestro Corps War is the highest ranking DC Comics event on this list.

    4) Annihilation: Conquest (79 pts)

    ww9Hio4.jpg

    It’s hard to follow up an event as successful as Annihilation, but Conquest continued Marvel’s cosmic renaissance, and helped launch this forum’s team of the decade, the Guardians of the Galaxy. So, that’s pretty good.

    3) Infinity (120 pts)

    ubPKABB.jpg

    The first act of Hickman’s mega-event, Infinity is huge, involving both the cosmic and more grounded side of Marvel’s main universe. Its full ramifications haven’t even been seen yet, but it did facilitate the origin of this forum’s favorite new superhero of the decade in Kamala Khan. Check out how I’m tying this all together.

    2) House of M (179 pts)

    AJgi3xs.jpg

    This was my pick for best event, and it stayed tight all the way through the poll. It’s a great alternate reality piece, picking up threads from Avengers Disassembled and pulling them into a really well-realized story that put the Marvel Universe in a very interesting place going forward, especially in the X-Men branch of the universe. It also has a tie-in where Hulk is in charge of Australia.

    1) Annihilation (195 pts)

    57GBRuL.jpg

    Annihilation’s most notable achievement, other than telling a pretty great war story, is taking Marvel’s cosmic heroes and villains and revitalizing them entirely. The entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving towards a giant cosmic conflict and a lot of the credit has to go to how Annihilation proved that Marvel’s cosmic side had plenty of great stories still hidden away, just waiting for someone to tell the right story.

    Who could beat the Hulk in what? Because if it was a haiku contest it would be a really tough fight.l
