Batman: JLA: New World Order by Morrison and Porter. The Hyperclan is taken out pretty much single handly by the mere mortal Batman that they underestimated.

Captain America: Ed Brubakers entire run, sorry if this breaks the rules but it has been bad ass from beginning to present.

Avengers (Any incarnation): Ultimates vol 1 and 2 by Millar and Hitch, some of my all time favorite reading right there!

Teen Titans (Any incarnation): The Judas Contract, one the best stories in all of comics period.

Hulk: Peter David and Dale Keown, when the Hulks three dominate personalities all merge into one. Not sure if the arc had a name or not but this has always been my favorite period of the Hulk.

Superman: Action Comics #775, shows that when he wants to Superman can be the baddest man on the planet! Brutally taking out the Elite, I loved this issue.

Spiderman: OMD, fuckin now way!! I keed I keed!! Kravens Last Hunt, it's a masterpiece in the history of Spidey.

Wonder Woman: JLA A League of One.

The Killing Joke.
Brubaker's run but specifically the annual he did with Marcos Martin and Javier Pulido.
The Ultimates or the GLA mini-series.
Don't have one.
Don't have one.
Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
Don't have one.
Don't have one.

Batman -- Detective 574, "...My Beginning, and My Probable End..."

Captain America -- JMD's Red Skull magnum opus, covering roughly issues 290-301

Avengers -- this flip-flops between about 4 arcs every day, but today it's West Coast Avengers "Lost in Space-Time"

Teen Titans -- even ahead of Judas Contract, the first Blackfire/Citadel story arc in NTT issues 23-25 and Annual 1

Hulk -- PAD's last issue, where Rick 10 years in the future tells the story of the Hulk; powerful stuff

Superman -- For All Seasons

Spiderman -- Marvel Team-Up 127 feat. Spidey & the Watcher; yeah that's right, no shit

Wonder Woman -- The Bronze Doors

Batman: The Killing Joke. Just a great story.

Captain America: The Death of Captain America from Cap #25. I know it's a stunt, but it was a great issue.

Avengers (Any incarnation) - The first arc of Young Avengers up until Kang's plan is ended and Iron Lad goes to the future. The way it treated the regular Avengers when they showed up, as well as the great young guys and gals, was perfect.

Teen Titans (Any incarnation) - McKeever's current run. I've never been a huge Titans fan, but he is making the book a must read. Plus Jaime is in it.

Hulk - I don't know the issue number, but when PAD came back to the book just before House of M he had a short run and there was a story about the Banner investigating the murder of a friend with the help of the ghost of the girl and the Hulk. It's a fascinating story.

Superman - Secret Identity. Just a great story about the spirit of the character.

Spiderman - Kraven's Last Hunt. I tried to be original and think of something better, but I just can't.

Wonder Woman - The New Frontier. I'm not a huge WW fan, but the way she's written in that book would make me one if others wrote her that way.

I've been looking for that Hulk issue. Has it been reprinted or put in a trade yet?

And speaking of Teen Titans, how about that Wildabeest arc by Wolfman & Grumett? :)

Avengers: Ultron Unlimited- Either that or Avengers Forever. But the sheer kick assery of Ultron vs the Avengers and how Busiek and Perez just nail the threat level to the fight with the Avengers vs one Ultron which then extends to an army of Ultrons.

Batman: Crime and Punishment- A classic story with Batman trying to stop Two-Face's most horrendous rampage in Gotham City. Show's the man is human but the way he pieces why Harvey is doing this and that even he is human and can't stop every deed Two-Face reeks upon Gotham. Has one of my fav scenes of Batman too his determination by only allowing himself an hours sleep before going to back to it.



Batgirl: Kicking Assassins- Batgirl being hunted by the A Game of villainy in: the Brotherhood of Evil and Deathstroke and Ravager. The fights in all those issues I loved with the spectacular Cass vs Slade/Rose. And through it all Cass endures and uses what's she's best at to beat them all. The second Shiva fight was good as well but I just love this better.

Superman: Hunter/Prey- Superman facing his two greatest and most fearsome foes, Doomsday and Cyborg Superman. Sure right after this Doomsday became a joke villain thanks to Hack Loeb. But still I love this story. This is Dan Jurgens Superman/drawing masterpiece.

Deadpool: #0- The freakin issue you get from Wizard was probably the only comic I've ever cried with laughter and continue to laugh like a hynea at.

TMNT: Return to New York- The turtles on the run for an entire year decide enough is enough and return to their city where the Shredder and Foot Clan await them with the final battle between Saki and the Turtles.

Spider-Man: Legacy of Evil- I love me Goblins. And this one written by Busiek focuses on the relationship of Spidey and the Green Goblins (Norman and Harry). Main reason why I'm pissed about BND is that this story appears to be erased with the supposed dead Green Goblins reaching their hands from beyond the grave to give their legacy to Normie Osborn. Terrifying, insightful on the history of mortal enemies, and Spidey doing his best to confront the ghosts of the past. Sure I'm a HUGE Hobgoblin fan but that's a freakin bible that saga.

This? One simple one shot that contains all I love about Goblins and their rivalry with Spider-Man.

X-Men: #1-3- Claremont "final" tale with the X-Men vs newly "evil" Magneto for the "final" time. Looking at the ways of Magneto and the X-Men to end their historic rivalry this story had the best ending to them all and the one that should have stuck.

Great art by Jim Lee and you fully sympathize with Mags in the story and his enemies as well. Hard rooting against or for either. Except Fabian Cortez. Goddamn prick.


Green Lantern: Revenge of the Green Lanterns- Cyborg Superman showing why he's a great GL villain besides GL. Not really a fan of Hal Jordan, but I love the tale Johns sets up cemeting Sinestro Corps War and restablishing the Cyborg Superman who was a joke villain into DC's elite villainous class. I go with Sinestro Corps War as well but this is the story that started it all for me GL wise again.

Batman - Cosmic Odyssey (decks Orion, "His name was FORAGER!")

Captain America - Earth X (post-apocalyptic kick-assery)

Avengers - Secret Wars (popcorn fun)

Teen Titans - Judas Contract (wins by default; sadly, there aren't that many 'great' Titans stories, imo)

Hulk - ...I honestly don't know.

Superman - For the Man Who Has Everything (best DCU story of all time, imo)

Spiderman - Saga of the Alien Costume (such a cool direction)

Wonder Woman - Stoned (portrays Diana as a true warrior)

Name one other. :P Even the crossover with the Outsiders was fun, but wasn't 'great'. Wolfman & Perez offered a great team dynamic that fueled the popularity, but the stories.... meh.
