"Oh, Come On." is a bloody well apt name for this quest set. Trying to hunt down the second half of the Wolverine-related chunk was a pain in the ass and when I finally got the correct volume selected that was my reaction to the whole thing. Finished at 407.
The wolverine one is a pain especialyy as there are plenty of examples of Wolverine's super healing factor.
I honestly thought they were looking for the one where he regenerated from a single drop of blood, which to me was a much greater "WTF?" moment than just regenerating from his skeleton...

" @Hunter114:  Big 2? "

I'm with you on this one - that clue flew right over my head. Anyone got another hint for Crossing the Chasm?

Cruised in at # 161. The ex-girlfriends gave me fits thanks to me missing clicking on one of the females in the "Friends" section of the Human Torch page. If anyone needs hints, feel free to PM me.

@Bigheart711:  For Universally Unknown have a look at Jack Kirby's page and read up on some of his final achievements. For Marvelous Ushers, which pieces are you missing? Checking out the publisher page for the the "house that Jack and Stan built" and digging into some of its former names might help...

Came in at 172 - wasn't that hard after I realized that the Comics By Cover sorting tabs also had links below the series that would take you directly to a list of the issues that are related to the character or creator.

@aztek the lost:  I'll totally agree that the last page summed it up nicely, and the length of time it took to get to that payoff was a drag and a half and left the reader (well, at least it left me) expecting more out of it. I mean, if you're going to do a book that essentially amounts to a short story then it should come out in a short story's length of time - six months, max. They drug that thing out way too long. Even Transmet seemed to drag by the end of its run and the capstone issue for it felt contrived. I realize that was because they pretty much told him to wrap it up, but I'd rather he left it with more of a bang than "Spider fools everyone into thinking he's turning into a brain-damaged waste but he really isn't."

#45 - and I agree with satanmode - that 1000-point post to the Wiki was a beast. Thankfully that quest got a LOT easier once my edits could skip the moderation queue.

@aztek the lost: Agreed with you on that. I got so tired of waiting for the new issues to drop, and he could have done so much more with the concept than the "we blew it all to hell by creating these things" ending.
