Just wondering what it is in your opinion ...doesn't necessarily have to be a crossover
i can't remember a good marvel event in the past 10 years
the past five years they have been outlandishly awful
AVX, siege, fear itself, civil war, world war hulk
AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL
I hear Age of Apocalypse was pretty good and the Infinity Gaunlet.. but other then that...
I liked Civil War, Secret Invasion, Siege and Fear Itself - liked, never loved but they were enjoyable.
My favourite crossover would be a pretty small one, perhaps made greater thanks to nostalgia - The Phalanx Covenant. That was the first comic event I read since I stopped reading Marvel some five years earlier.
In my memory its a great event.
Going to re read it and if memory doesnt serve me right, at least it got Sabretooth
Fingers crossed for infinity, the captain marvel, Indistructable hulk and avengers comics running up to the event have all been great, I'm really hoping that the next event will lead to big changes, especially in the Bruce banner charecter but also the charecters in the mighty avengers... We will see
My favorite all-time "event" is the Infinity Guantlet. It had an absolutely fantastic build-up for about twenty issues of Silver Surfer, and the Thanos Quest. I don't think Marvel had an event of its' size for quite sometime before that. The whole event (including the SS issues) was great because not only did it heavily feature my second favorite hero SS (behind Spidey), but it introduced me to Adam Warlock. I read the trades on Adam Warlock and he became my third favorite all-time hero.
In a very, very close second is Annihilation. Like it has already been mentioned, the build-up for that, with the four mini-series was awesome. The event itself did not disappoint either with many memorable scenes.
Civil war I liked as well. It was a good shake up for the Marvel Universe with amazing artwork. Sure, several of the characters didn't act like themselves, but it was fun regardless.
I liked Planet Hulk, and World War Hulk. WWH was completely mindless fun, and I love JRJR's artwork. Don't take it too seriously,and the event is enjoyable. Far from great, but enjoyable.
SECRET INVASION WAS TERRIBLE!!!! The worst event by far in my opinion. After the reveal of (SPOILER) Electra as a Skrull, which was well done, I disliked it all.
Fear Itself was good. Again, not great, but good.
Annihilation, Annihilation: Conquest, War of Kings, Realm of Kings, and Thanos Imperative were by far the best. Danny Abnett and Andy Lanning need to have full time positions writing nothing but cosmic events for Marvel.
I've heard there's bad blood between them and Bendis, which is why they're not with Marvel anymore.
