      "Newly-recruited to the Avengers, ex-Brotherhood babe Scarlet Witch lets loose, wreaking havoc on her new teammates. After killing Hawkeye, ex-hubbie Vision and Jack Of Hearts, she manipulates Stark so that he feels p****d and embarks on a torrid fake affair with Captain America." I was struggling to remember when Tony Stark had a torrid affair with Captain America (fake or not) and then I realised that last sentence really could have benefitted from an oxford comma. :)

      The first (of probably many) that springs to mind is in Robert "Walking Dead" Kirkman's other ongoing series, Invincible (which is equally brialliant). I am talking about the end of issue #10. And ALL of issues #11 and #12 - it's THAT massive and it's too good to be spoiled.

      @piffle- I was confounded as well until I reread that sentence like 3 times. haha. Happy to see the inclusion of some Watchmen on here, as I think that is the pinnacle of comics. And Bane breaking Batman's back.. well, I think we all gasped a little on that one. Hears hoping that is the ending of The Dark Knight Rises. Shocking and bleak.. that's what I want in a superhero story.

      "Atom accidentally kills Jean Loring." That did not happen at all in Identity Crisis.

      The insanely brilliant artwork (the look of the Joker is genius) in Arkam Asylum.
