POLL: The Top 50 WTF Moments in Comics
Wednesday, November 05, 2008 - 12:06 AM
[UGO] It's Wednesday. You just plopped down twenty (or more) of your hard earned dollars for this week's crop of comics. You get home, anxiously awaiting "me time." You head for the toilet and open up this month's latest issue of your favorite monthly. When all of the sudden...
That's right, something happens to make you lose your $#!t. Whether it be a new costume that's really an alien or the resurrection of a long dead character, comic books have a long history of turning convention on its ear. Sometimes these moments are great; sometimes, not so much. No matter what the results are, the reaction remains the same. What. The. F*ck?
This excellent piece starts with the sad story of Bill Finger and winds its way through some of the most bizarre moments in comics history. Well worth a peruse. Read the entire thing.

In Response to fettmaster (#45724):
Well if we are going to use WTF moments from great works like Y: The Last Man, then I would suggest its ending concerning Yorick and Agent 355.

F'ing "One More Day"
I am a HUGE Spider-Man fan, I have been collecting for the past 20 some years. I Canceled my subscription and cut back on everything Marvel after that travesty of a story. And until they undo it I won't be buying Amazing Spider-Man.
Torture numbers and they'll confess to anything.

One More Day, by far. (Wiki says the conclusion of that was Amazing Spiderman 545, is that right?)
As much as I hated to see Cap die, you could pretty much see it coming - or at least that SOMETHING was coming like that. And they tied it up decently.
When Peter and MJ CHOSE to sacrifice their marriage - that screwed up EVERYTHING. The connection between Peter and MJ WAS spiderman in my opinion, for them to sunder that marriage ruins the series, to me.

Here's a twofer I just heard about:
Barry Allen returning and Wally West stepping down as The Flash and becoming Impulse.
Hey, maybe that counts as a three-fer.

Two words: NAMTAB POTS!
The big events like Cap's death get too much advance publicity, so they don't usually catch us off balance.
But I was utterly gobsmacked by the Identity Crisis explanation for why all the villains keep forgetting heroes' secret IDs.
And then that final hook in the gut--
No warning. None whatsoever. And I'm still wide-eyed.
