WINNER - Most Maddening Moment of the Year - 2014

What truly irked fans the most in 2014? Wonder no longer!

Look at the bright side, at least 2014 was much nicer than 2013. That's something right guys? RIGHT?!  In any case, once more we're here to talk about the top three moments of 2014 that irked you the most.

Coming in at #3 with 35 votes is the moment that broke DC's long lasting eighty-day run of not doing anything stupid, yes I speak of that lovely moment when someone outside of DC thought this:

Would be highly marketable. Yes, the Superman/Wonder Woman: SCORE! Superman Does it Again T-shirt scandal.

#2 isn't just a DC Comic issue, but really a comic-wide problem that involves every company. The problem to which I speak is that came in with over 52 votes is of The Rise of the $5 Comic and it's Ever Increasing Dominace in the Comic Book Market:

So what ruled #1? Well, it's been a year and you all are STILL sore over it. I'm even astonished a lot of you are furious over it. Your WINNER of the Most Maddening Moment of 2014:



It's been a year, and I'm still furious over Cartoon Network cancelling Young Justice.

This one surprised me. With all the problems that happened with the Legend of Korra this year. I thought for sure, that was a shoe-in to win this year (that came tied for fourth place with twenty-six votes). Then the $5 comic issue rose up in October, but nope, you're all bummed at this show which has been gone for an entire year.  The Blu-Ray releases that came out this year only spurned the old wound, didn't it?.

Well, there's your Most Maddening Moment of the Year for 2014. It still left me like this after all is said and done:

Will 2015 be better for us? Who knows, only time will tell. Until next year folks!
