View Full Version : Top Ten

04-07-2009, 03:37 PM
So I was thinking figuring a lot of people agree that todays Marvel might not be treating their favorite characters properly I would create a list of top ten stories for my two favorite characters (Hulk and Spidey).

This list isn't a Best of, just stories with those characters you absolutely enjoy.

Spider-man ---
1-Kraven's Last Hunt
2-Death of Jean Dewolfe
3-Child Within
4-Spectacular Spider-man 72-79...Best Doc Ock/Spidey fight ever.
5-Specatular Spider-man #200
6-Revelations -- Not the JMS one but the storyline to finish the clone saga. Even though I groan about Norman coming back but it had a truly epic feel to the story.
7-Amazing Spider-man #200
8-Nobody Stops the Juggernaut
9-Invasion of the Spider-Slayers -- LOVE IT. The Smythes are my favorite villians
10-Coming Home -- I really enjoyed Morlun. Can't say much else about it.

I have plenty of others like Amazing Spider-man 400 but those are the ones I would choose if I could only choose 10.

Now for the Hulk

1-Future Imperfect
2-The End
3-Countdown -- Big fan of Mad Man.
4-Incredible Hulk #25 -- IMO best Abomination fight ever.
5-Incredible Hulk #300
6-Ground Zero
7-Ghosts of the Past
8-Crossroads Saga -- I know I should include 300 into this...but nah its still great
9- Return of the Monster -- I hate every other storyline Bruce Jones touched on the Hulk...except for this.
10- Jim Wilson AIDs issue -- Just a great issue.

So what are your favorites for your favorite characters?
