Title speaks for itself. It's a new annual thing I decided to do (which is why I didn't get a review up last week). These are all MY opinions. If you disagree, don't complain.
Best Writer of 2012
Johns has been giving us epics all year long with Aquaman, Green Lantern, and Justice League. And after his work on Flashpoint, how is this guy not writing the Flash? Anyway, Johns takes home writer of the year.
Second place: Scott Snyder (while I personally feel his work on Batman is overrated, he is a great writer and deserves to be on here)
Third Place: Brian Azzarello
Best Ongoing Series of 2012
Wonder Woman has just been truly amazing. It has an actual story form, it gives WW a great new costume, and it's just down right good. Not to mention it gave us the return of Orion.
Second Place: Aquaman
Third Place: TIE: Batman/The Amazing Spider-Man
Thor: God of Thunder would be on here, however, we only got 3 issues of it in 2012. Though it will probably be in next year.
Best Single Issue of 2012
It was just an amazing issue. After Two nice issues, Thor: God of Thunder got even better with number 3. While I personally liked #4 more, that was published in 2013.
Second Place: Batman #11
Third Place: The Amazing Spider-Man #700
Best Male Hero of 2012
This is NOT my personal favorite. My favorite character is Thor, though he was a punching bag most of the year. Aquaman gets #1. He went out there, and proved to everyone how f*cking awesome he can be and that he's more than just a joke. Not to mention he just looks epic.
Second Place: Spider-Man
Third place: Batman
Best Female Hero of 2012
No one else deserves the spot. Just, no one did anything that impressive.
Second Place: Catwoman
Third Place: Ms. Marvel
Best Male Villain of 2012
Who the Hell else deserves this spot? Everything Joker has done in 2012? Well, he only had two or three appearances, but still.
Second Place: Dr. Octopus
Third Place: Dr. Doom
Best Female Villain of 2012
Gonna be honest: Not much to say here.
Second Place: Hera
Third Place: Poison Ivy
Best New Character of 2012
Not much to say. Again....
Second Place: H'el (almost took first)
Third Place: Simon Baz
Best Team of 2012
I know, a Justice League with no Martian Manhunter is absolutely ridiculous. But they have been the best team this year. I don't even think it's possible to keep track of the dozens of Avengers and X-men teams, so who else is there for #1? Even though they're missing the heart of the League.
Second Place: Fantastic Four
Third Place: Thunderbolts
Best Costume of 2012
Superman's costume is just truly epic. There were A LOT of contenders for this one. I choose Superman for number one because his Pre-Flashpoint costume was horrible in every way, while it's been massively improved here.
There are so many other contenders, I'll just list them:
- Wonder Woman
- The Punisher
- Iron Man
Most Awesome Looking Team of 2012
Don't they just look awesome? It's just a perfect looking team. Black & Red are perfect together.
Second Place: Fantastic Four.
Third Place: Justice League Dark
Best Comic Movie of 2012
I LOVED The Dark Knight Rises. I loved everything about it. It's the greatest film DC has ever made, animated or live action. But The Avengers was a better comic book movie, plus I just liked it more.
Now, there will not be a second or third place thing, because there were only two good comic movies this year. The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises.
Best Comic Television Series of 2012
It's an amazing show, and the greatest thing seen on TV in YEARS. I love Avengers: EMH, Young Justice, Justice League (Unlimited), and others, but none of those compare to this. If you have not watched Arrow yet, WATCH IT NOW!
Second Place: The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!
Third Place: Young Justice/Young Justice: Invasion
Best Moment of 2012
This was just a truly epic moment. The formation of the Justice League.
Second Place: The Return of the Joker in Batman #13
Third Place: Superman gets an awesome costume in Action Comics #5 or 6 (I forget(
Master of PIS in 2012
Batman is and always will be the Master of PIS. He'll be taking home the award EVERY year unless something changes.
Second Place: Captain Cold.
Third Place: Every other one of Flash's villains (except Professor Zoom. But I think he's gone).
Worst Moment of 2012
As bad as it was seeing some of our favorite characters gone in the New 52 (my big sad is Stephanie Brown), what they did to Power Girl was an atrocity (is that the right word?). It's an insult to the name, and it the worst moment in 2012 comics.
Second Place: Stephanie Brown and Wally West still erased from history.
Third Place: Cyclops killing Professor Xavier in Avengers vs X-Men.
Worst Comic Movie of 2012
This movie was just terrible. Downright TERRIBLE. It gets the worst comic movie of 2012. For more, look at my review.
Worst Comic Television of 2012
Just... wow. When I first heard about the series, I was happy. I had been reading the Ultimate Spider-Man comics and loving them, and I loved the character Spidey. So, I gave it a try. Worst. Show. Ever. Okay, maybe not that bad. But still horrible. I can't believe they cancelled the Spectacular Spider-Man for this.
Most Underrated Comic Series of 2012
My God, what is with all the hate for Catwoman? It's spectacular. Better than the Batman ongoing. Yes, this cover may not be the most flattering, but still...
Second Place: Superman (why do people hate it before #0)
Third Place: Blue Beetle (I like it more than the previous two, although it doesn't get a lot of hate, so it's not #1. It's underrated people because never bring it up. They never shut up about Batman)
Most Improved Character of 2012
I never liked Billy. I found him annoying. Though he's awesome in the New 52. I would of given it to Superman or Aquaman, though those two made their improvements in 2011, right before 2012. But Billy didn't debut again until 2012. So, yeah.
Second Place: Thor (he was a punching bag most of the year, though it took three issues for him to improve)
Third Place: ???
Well, that's my 2012 Comic Awards. Be sure to be here next year for the 2013 Comic Awards.
