Best DC event ever (64 votes)

Crisis on Infinite Earths 11%
Death /Reign/Return of Superman 2%
Knightfall 3%
Zero Hour 2%
The Final Night 0%
Our Worlds at War 2%
No Man's Land 8%
Identity Crisis 6%
Infinite Crisis+ tie ins 2%
52 22%
Sinestro Corps War 17%
Final Crisis+ tie ins 9%
Blackest Night + tie ins 8%
Flashpoint +tie ins 9%

So I tried to include all the significant events that were critically or commercially appreciated. Hence no Countdown. So which ones the best? Personally I feel the original crisis is hard to top although I was surprised by 52 .I "felt" the awe and scale of the stakes in final crisis but also thought it lacking in execution. Identity and Infinite began better than any of the rest and ended worse than most. However my pick is gonna have to be SCW.Perfect in its set up and execution, this is arguably Johns' best story and for me DCs best event ever. What are your thoughts? Vote now!

52, with Final Crisis being a very close second.

I love those two events, they are my absolute favourite events in comics, but I didnt expect anyone else to agree.

I'll go with No Man's Land because I can tolerate small events that affect only one group of related characters like the Bat-family or the Green Lanterns but I can't get into big events that involve the entire comic universe. I just feel bogged down when there are too many characters involved in a story especially if the amount I am invested in reading about are outnumbered by the amount I don't care for.

Flashpoint

No Brightest Day? And I'm surprised how many people chose Flashpoint :/

For me it was close but I chose Infinite Crisis. Something about it, its art, its at-the-time mindbending crossovers, it'd have to be one of my favourite stories of all time.

Sinestro Corps War followed by 52. Final Crisis was horrible

#20 Posted by SavageDragon (2166 posts) - - Show Bio

Identity Crisis for me.

#21 Edited by GodTriggerHulk (1910 posts) - - Show Bio

I though people didn't like 52. Anyway I picked SCW.

@godtriggerhulk: I think you mistake 52 with n52. 52 is a comic series about the year after Infinite Crisis

#23 Posted by GodTriggerHulk (1910 posts) - - Show Bio

@waezi2:

No I was thinking of 52.

Perhaps my judgement was clouded by the force of Linkara's words...

#24 Edited by batmannflash (6109 posts) - - Show Bio

IDENTITY CRISIS is the best!

52 is probably second. Really did not like Final Crisis

Notables: Blackest Night, Flashpoint, Infinite Crisis

Final Crisis by miles.

Not even close.

Final Crisis by light years.

Crisis on Infinite Earths has Perez drawing every DC character and had a story that blew my mind.

If I had to more votes, I'd vote for Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night (but minus the tie-ins that aren't issues of Green Lantern or Green Lantern Corps).
