    SPOILER THE INVINCIBLE BITS YOU FOOL

    Oh lord, that was what? 2 years ago?
    ...and?


    Invincible is a series that constantly gets new readers and the big huge jaw-dropping reveal is considered a no-no to spoil.

    It's a thread called "Powerful Scenes"

    That should have given away that there are spoilers in here

    and look back in the thread.


    Most of the spoilery scenes are in ,shockingly enough, spoiler tags.

    And with the power at my disposal the thread title shall be altered!

    The thor thread reminds me that the line "Ultron! We would have words with thee!" as Thor bashed down a wall after fighting an army of Ultron bots that had slaughtered a country was pretty epic. Pretty much the pinnacle of what an Avengers story should be in my mind.

    A couple of recent ones I liked were the Sensational Spider-Man Annual, especially the
    "... I don't suppose you've met my husband, The Amazing Spider-Man."
    at which point Peter crashes through the window, and saves MJ from a room full of highly trained
    S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

    and from 'The Other' storyline(which was crap, but I still love the line)
    "Mary-Jane, if you're ever in trouble, even if I have to escape from Hell itself, I <i>will</i> be there for you."

    There's probably others, but I can't think of more off the top of my head.

    that was an awe-inspiring moment. the "...of Marvels" line in the corner really captures it.

    A scene that always stands out in my mind is the last issue of the Odyssey arc in Peter David's Captain Marvel volume 2.
    In the future, Marv's son has allied himself with the Magus and they threaten the universe. Marv is going to fight his son and his son has a long monologue that it will be an epic battle and legends will spawn from it for years to come and the very mountains will quake. In his first attack he passes right through Marv and eventually disappears. We see why in the next couple of pages.

    Marv goes back to his own time and decides to kill his son while he is a babe in the crib.

    Because he had just received a ten tonne beatdown from Onslaught and Cap is picking him up off the ground.

    Spider-Man was one of the Heroes who didn't get sucked into the alternate dimension during the Onslaught/Heroes Reborn thing. If I recall correctly.

    So I just read the first Walking Dead Trade...

    Idunno if anyone mentioned this yet but
    When the Main Character get's the horse and decides to talk to the horse about the best day of his life to try and take his mind off of the horrible thing's he's seen so far that day. He goes on to talk about the brith of his son and what he felt like when he first saw him. He stops mid-story saying somthing to the effect that thinking about the good times only made him feel worse.

    also
    When the Main Character's little boy shoots the Main Character's Partner at the end. And when he realized exactly what he did and the implications of it he exclaims "It's a lot diffrent than killing the ones that are already dead..." to which his dad replies that "It Should" as he holds his son in his arms.

    "WE ARE THE WALKING DEAD!" -- Was a powerful moment that the series needed badly. As a zombie-genre fan, I felt that much of TWD was very rehashed and somewhat just sort of paying homage, but that quote really gave it a bit more for me to like about it.

    That quote is a rehash. I mean, the idea that we ourselves are zombies has been around since at least as long ago as the first time Romero depicted the undead storming a mall. It's a short leap to a character outright declaring it for the audience.

    Shortly after horrifically burning an inmate's face with boiling hot cooking fat, as Rorschach is being dragged through the prison he states to the other prisoners; "None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me."

    the whole bit with the cops chasing Rorschach through that house and then especially the panel in which he yells for his face back

    Rorschach gets most of the best lines in that book.
    The bit at the very end where Manhatten has to kill him for instance
