WINNER - Most Maddening Moment of the Year - 2012

2012 gave us a lot to be mad about, but which moment in comics earned fanboy fury oh so much? Well wonder no more!!




 

I can safely say that 2012 was the year of rage. Not one year did I see so much fanboy outcry due to so many things. Yes, even this reporter was a sinner who gave into the rage (though thankfully not as bad as I did in 2011). Regardless, no matter what rage made fanboys react in the most absurd and eventually humorous ways only one moment can truly spark so much ire.

 

Only one moment could make someone cry out in such a furious rage that this was the regular response had by many:

 

 

 

Rage so pure that it crossed not only worlds, but heaven/hell, and time itself. In fact, after several weeks one can still hear the anguished cries of fans. Ironically, with only one week left of 2012 one moment jumped forward over all other moments to win. Yes, I speak of the one and only..

 

 

 

 


Peter Parker dies in Doc Ock's body, while Ock in Peter's swears to the recently departed he'll be a superior Spider-Man. - Amazing Spider-Man #700

 

It tickles this reporter somewhat that Dan Slott pulled off the rare trick of winning both best moment of the year and most hated. Honestly, if an author is doing giving both emotions to readers doesn't that mean he's doing his job at being a good writer? Anyway, also unlike Moment of the Year Mister Slott had this to say of attaining the award:

 

“Yes. Remember how b*t-sh*t crazy Zechs got with the surprise we pulled on him with the Hobgoblin, Outhousers? All you guys freaking out over #700 right now? YOU'RE ALL THE NEW ZECHS! “

 

 

I have to confess, the man is right. Again, no matter how many times I have to apologize I will to Dan Slott, because I over-reacted to him “killing” a fan favorite character of mine in Roderick Kingsley the original Hobgoblin, who as it turns out this year wasn't so dead to begin with.

 

It's why I find it all the more humorous I really am not angry at Amazing Spider-Man #700. Quite the contrary, I cannot wait to see what Slott has for us in Superior Spider-Man. After all, he still has numerous plots he never wrapped up on Amazing and no doubt he'll continue them here. Regardless, I hope Slott teases the hell out of you all as he did me (and rightfully so). Given the preview of Superior Spider-Man #1 I'd say he's off to a great start. So go ahead and rage because this is what Dan Slott will be doing:

 

 

 

And with that, I leave you because really how can I top the mental image of Dan Slott in the Emperor's throne encouraging you all to let loose with that hate. Here's to 2013 to be light on the anger (it probably won't)! Other than that,  it's good to be me. After all, you're all ME. ME. ME. ME.

I asked my brother if he heard about this and he replied (and I quote): "This is why fanboys should not write comics."

Considering what we've gotten for stories over the past few years, I have to agree with this to a great extent. At the very least, MUCH MORE often than not, they should not be writing the comics they grew up with.

:-D

This is pretty much what Marvel has been doing for the past couple of years. I'd say DC too but I stopped paying attention to DC after Identity Crisis (I started paying attention to DC during Identity Crisis).

As much as I can appreciate that these guys are paying "homage" to their favourite stories, they really aren't coming with any original shit. I understand that it's hard to come with original shit for serial characters that are 50+ years old, but there are great stories out there being written in the independents, so there have to be original ideas.

I think Marvel has made the right moves bringing on guys like Rick Remender and Jonathan Hickman etc but the guys who have apparently been their cornerstone writers are pretty much useless when it comes to ideas.

Bendis is the fucking worst for recycling ideas.

Honestly, it isn't the worse thing done. I voted CN pulling DC Nation. Pity that didn't win.
