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.

I saw this game in a comic-book ad, and since I’m a fan of norse mythology, like 3rd person medieval-type games, I bought it.  I read a bad review of it on some game site, but in my opinion, it’s been a really good game.  I’m far from done with it, but the basic jist is you are a warrior trying to reclaim land from the evil “Legion.”  You have to sneak into enemy camps, caves, etc, find mystic amulets for controlling dragons, and then fight big battles when you’ve recruited enough armymen.  The AI is pretty amazing, cuz’ if enemy soldiers spot you in the wrong place, you’re done.   If you like God of War or Conan, you could do much worse than this game.
