I was thinking about the best comic story arcs that I remember.  Of course, a lot of these sprout from my early adolescence, but many of them hold up fairly well today (even in the age of the bloodthirsty, take-no-prisoners antihero).

Sure, there’s a ton out there, but here’s some off the top of my head:

The death of Gwen Stacey in Amazing Spider-Man.

Thor being defeated by Hercules and then rescuing him from the Underworld.

The “coming of the Over-Mind” storyline from FF.

The Kree-Skrull war storyline from Avengers.

Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Trial of the Flash.

Don McGregor’s Black Panther/Killmonger run.

Sure, there’s a bazillion different storylines out there.  These are just some that come to mind.  All of them had the hallmark of a great serial, anxiously waiting for the next installment.

forgot one:

the whole Dr.Strange/Shuma-Gorath storyline in Marvel Premiere. (I think). Written by Steve Englehart? (with an assist from hp lovecraft)
