      It blew my fricking mind when I finally read that story and found out that the rape thing wasn't even the main part, or worst part. What the frick were they thinking. They could have told the whole brainwashing story in so many ways that wouldn't have thrown her and Ralph into a meatgrinder.

      Eh, she and Ralph were ultimately very inconsequential characters.
      All that did was make them unusable in the long run, which isn't a big loss for DC, shame about the 13 Elongated Man fans tho.

      But anon, that was like half the point of Identity Crisis, DC really wanted to be dark and edgy, specially with two of their most wholesome characters, they specifically wanted to do rape before Marvel.

        Sue was the wife of Elongated Man. In identity Crisis, the main plot was she was killed and there's a panic over someone supposedly going after the loved ones of heroes. One suspect was villain Dr Light, who in a flashback had at one point infiltrated the JL space station where Sue was and raped her. It was basically an edgy moment that added nothing since Light was not the culprit. The real murderer and the motives were much more stupid.

      Crisis on Infinite Earths is the greatest self-inflicted wound in comics history, junking decades of rich storytelling to please a handful of unimportant continuity wonks and locking DC into the self-destructive pattern of hitting the reset button to create short cash spikes, burning out creatives and readers alike and resulting in diminishing monetary returns for the company over time.

      Let's see:
      >Sanctuary being a thing. A place where heroes supposedly go for therapy treatment yet there's no qualified therapists at all, nor security. What it does have are rooms which shows the heroes their most traumatising or emotional memories over and over again, which I'm no therapist myself but I'm pretty sure that does the opposite of help
      >Another event to kill off characters for no other reason than shock value
      >They mentioned they wanted to emulate the horror of a school or mall shooting....except the culprit here was Flash, and the trigger that killed the people was an accident, mass shooters don't accidently kill people.
      >The trinity not only pretty much do jack shit throughout the event, despite them being so prominent in the covers and the summaries say they do stuff, they also at one point went 3 on 1 to take Harley in....and she gave them a hard time by herself.
      >No blame was placed on the Sactuary itself, despite the comics clearly showing the flaws it had and it continued to be in operation at the end.
      I don't know if subsequent comics later rectified the shit listed here but the event itself was easily the worst "Crisis" event DC had put out.

      Is there a DC Crisis event that was seen by more as good than bad?

          Because Reed and Sue were married when THEY first read the comics.

          All this sober businessmen making the hard decisions bullshit is a total LARP. There's a reason Dan Slott went from a Gordon Gekko wannabe on CBR saying 'the only thing that matters is the sales and we should only do what sells' to 'w-well Amazing Spider-Man is still selling good enough so you should just leave it alone...' when new Ultimate took off.

            I mean, bear in mind that Slott is very much one of the people that has dragged the FF into the next stage of being a growing family, letting Valeria and Franklin get older, making Johnny worry that he's going to end up alone at this rate, and having Alicia and Ben get married and adopt the best and most adorable child soldiers ever. I'm not about to absolve him from blame with the current state of Peter's love life, but I doubt he's one of the true obstacles to undoing OMD.

                Going to have to strongly disagree with you. N'kalla and Jo are my second-favorite thing added to FF in years and years.
                Ben "has put up with way too much space bullshit" Grimm adopting the living embodiments of the end of the Kree-Skrull war is just great, and I've enjoyed the interactions enough to ALMOST make up for stupid things in the past few years.
                My #1 favorite thing from the last few years of FF has to be Johnny managing to frick up his own pseudo-marriage by fricking Doom's fiancé. 10/10 Johnny frickup. Even managed to work Lyja in there somehow.

    I kind of wonder what 90s Marvel would have looked like if they didn't go full speculator boom and focused on 5 different variant foil covers for a single issue, 3D cardboard covers, books bagged with cards and other collectables etc. That eventually led to bankruptcy and cancelling of half the titles.

    Could Thunderstrike, Darkhawk, New Warriors, and Avengers West Coast last a little longer, maybe even become something lasting?

      Variants weren't Marvel's issue in the 90s. The biggest problem they had was trying to be a distributor on top of publisher but they had no idea how to do that let alone even a fraction of the needed logistics to accomplish it. They nearly bankrupted themselves off that expansion alone which was just coumpounded as the bubble burst on the speculator market and readership nose dived.

      They invested a lot of money into a project they had no idea how to finish and their source of income was dramatically reduced in a very short timeframe.

      I know everyone loves to boogyman variant covers but they are not nearly as big of a deal as people make them out to be. (And tthey're actually hella lucrative for LCS that know what they are doing)

        Marvel's owner from the late 80s to mid 90s had the plan of the company doing everything in-house instead of licensing merch out to other companies. They got themselves into massive debt buying up trading card companies, a toy company, a comic distribution company and more, so they could do everything themselves. Then the crash happened and they were in massive debt they couldn't work their way out of anymore. If it hadn't happened, they'd likely have tried buying a videogame company as well, and comic retailers at the time were terrified of the prospect of Marvel launching their own chain of stores, even though they denied having plans to do so.

        IIRC the distribution company they bought was only a regional company, and just didn't have the capabilities for national distribution, let alone international, and it was a side of the industry Marvel's own people had no idea how to manage.

        Gimmick covers were a thing Marvel did in the 90s, but not variant covers so much. In the late '90s they had an initiative where every #2 would have a variant cover, as an incentive to try and minimize sales drops from #1 to #2, but they didn't really get into the RARE LIMITED COLLECTOR'S ITEM VARIANT game in a big way until the 2000s. It happened occasionally, but it wasn't an integral part of their business model the way it's become.

      Even if you believe the wedding was a mistake, you have to concede that having the flagship character sell his marriage to the devil was a massive mistake.
      All the times Superman got unmarried to Lois was just because they reset the universe and it didn't reflect anything on Superman as a character, it was just DC going "yeah whatever we're doing this now."
      Marvel's flagship character now has his soul beholden to a supervillain and is believing false memories implanted by that supervillain. There are a million ways they could have ended the marriage that wouldn't have resulted in the clusterfrick they left the characters and fans stuck in.

Would Nightcrawler? Would any of them? Because that way we could evolve them into new directions, we could bring in new characters. There would be an ongoing sense of renewal, and growth and change in a positive sense.
            >Then, unfortunately, Jean was resurrected, Scott dumps his wife and kid and goes back to the old girlfriend.

        The way they handled it in the storyline could have been better, yes. Peter Parker selling anything to the devil was a bad idea. But the story itself has been basically ignored since it came out, and the Brand New Day status quo was still the right move.
        Compare that to every major event DC has done in the last 15 years and it's not even close. It's like if Marvel had taken Heroes Reborn then doubled down on it again and again and again.

          This is historical revisionism propagated by pro-Quesada zealots who actually think that One More Day saved the franchise when in reality it damaged it heavily. Quesada being willing to eat bad sales while man-children like Slott and Wells continued to further ruin the character of Peter Parker does not mean the Brand New Day status quo was the right decision. It was simply the only decision that allowed self-inserters to vicariously relive fantastical versions of their youth through a fictional character.

      Huh. Not something I would've immediately thought of, but I think this might actually be a winner. A character with worldwide recognition so thoroughly broken by one guy that there's not even consensus on her basic powers or origin.

    Crisis on Infinite Earths is the greatest self-inflicted wound in comics history, junking decades of rich storytelling to please a handful of unimportant continuity wonks and locking DC into the self-destructive pattern of hitting the reset button to create short cash spikes, burning out creatives and readers alike and resulting in diminishing monetary returns for the company over time.

      What started every single thing you said was when they abandoned the original version of DC universe, the "golden age" one. When they got rid of Jay Garrick and replaced him for Barry for no reason, when they created a new Superman rather than changing his personality through a bit of character growth.

      And then they had to bring back all the golden age characters anyway through a forced retcon that never fully solved the issue.

What you're talking about is the timeline splitting into two divergent timelines that ran parallel to each other, not junking past stories wholesale because continuity freaks were sperging out over the calendar of Dick Grayson's college life not mapping onto Batman's adventures.

                It's worth emphasizing that this was a vanishingly small number of loudmouths and that if DC had stuck to their guns and told them to frick off, we'd still be reading books with strong roots extending all the way back into the 1930s and 1950s instead of having to deal with endless moronic resets.

              Not even Marvel gave much of a frick about continuity, it was absolutely not a single long story but rather a loosely tied shared universe, that's why there are several different Martian species or several different origins for the universe that are btw not "legends" or beliefs but events shown on panel with direct consequences to the present, when Captain America joined the avengers his golden age runs were often seen to be canon and then it was stated to be pure fiction in universe but his adventures with Namor were still totally canon.

    The bits people actually care about are easily retconnable, or otherwise reversed. Peter and MJ could easily get back together or punch Mephisto in the face, and their deal can be viewed as giving up his own happiness to help May.

    I'd say the more terrible frickups are the ones that would require an outright reset to fix, like how Symbiotes have been getting fricked with for the past 10+ years, and they've spread to every inch of Marvel to the point that it's not just easily retconned in one book either. Even then, you can fix the lore, but you can never return to character arcs like what Flash and Venom had in the Remender-Bunn monthly.

        To be fair Jon was clearly a mistake by himself, Superman just having a teenager son out of nowhere was such a massive skip of his character growth and progression. Nevermind how they had no plans on what to do with Superman having a family, there was no arcs exploring the new problems he would face by having a superpowered little kid walking around without proper training or good sense, there wans't anything about him and Lois learning how to be parents or how he was truly stuck on earth with no way to ever be with Kryptonians again. Nor there was any reaction from his arch enemies specially Lex and Zod to all those changes.

        Yes? Do you think they would never be able to date again if they divorced by themselves? You could easily just put Peter under a lot of situations where he would be unable to have any contact with MJ for several months that could turn into years or even forever such as a job or superhero adventure which would lead to a reasonable divorce but not a reason for them to never try again in the future

        I'm not going to pretend it was a bigger deal than wrecking higher-profile characters, but what Byrne did to Scarlet Witch and Vision was just pointless malicious spite, and Marvel's refusal to fix it over 30 years later is just unacceptable.

        What about that time they tried to retcon Aunt May as Peter's biological mother?

        Maybe we could write an "American Pie" parody about bad creative decisions in comics. "The day the comics died..."

        The only screw up worse than OMD is the first time someone changed a Marvel Comic character to try to match up to a movie instead of doing the opposite.

        Why not just let different incarnations of characters be different?

        Not a bad idea but I would like to something to it. The story picks up after Gwen joins the police force in new police ongoing. At the end of the series we learn who brought Gwen back it turns out to be Thanos,as you can imagine he did not do out it of the kindness of his heart. Oh no he did it for a very specific reason.

        Anyway story cuts back to Gwen who is now living her own life at first everything seems to be going fine and she even begins dating other people not men however but rather women. But then peculiar things start to happen the women who she dates simply die, members of her police force fall ill and also die. At this point Gwen starts to think something is not right with her since people all around her die.

        Right thanos then shows up and revels to her that when her brought he back he also gave her the ability of death. That means whoever comes in contact with Gwen is doomed to die after a while thus she has become Death incarnate.

        Thanos motive for doing such a crude thing is quite simple you see fans have complained many times saying "Gwen Stacy was a nobody character who never amounted to anything". And this why Thanos has made Gwen the instrument of death, by doing so in a sense he has made her matter, if only in terms of being death incarnate.

      Unironically I would be happy if they did bring her back. Lots of people say she is better off dead but given all of spider-man history and the mess things are I just don't know anymore. Maybe given all the shit which has occured her staying dead no longer really matters and pehaps that's why she should brought back. After so many years I doubt anybody would really mind if they were to do it.

                Tom says that if a thing in a comic doesn't happen on screen, then it hasn't happened, period! It doesn't matter if it's Paul and MJ, it doesn't matter if it's Logan and Jean Grey!

                TOM BREVOORT HAS DECREED THIS AND YOU *WILL* RESPECT IT IF YOU TRULY ARE AN X-MEN FAN.

                Tom Brevoort has decreed his opinions on all Marvel comics, in general. He's a highly respected industry figure, and has been an influential chief editor for years and one of the biggest supporters of One More Day.

                Sorry man, what he says matters. Unless you think he's just... some kind of dumbass... who's know in charge of the X-Men...???

                If Brevoort wants to undo all the damage, the first thing he has to do once the Crash happens next year into 26.
                is buyout marvel off disney and have it independent by licensing and copy what Jump did to save their asses from bankrupcy years ago.

    When they brought Jean back
    Once they did that they made death meaningless in comics

      This wasn't even close to the first death and return of a superhero in comics. The death of Phoenix blowing up into this huge thing that people hyped as "Marvel's best story" for so long and teaching the industry that superhero deaths are events that bring attention and sales to a book has been a cancer on the industry, but fans don't want to have that conversation, they WANT the deaths without the returns. Look at how many of the Marvel stories celebrated as the all time classics are basically just SOMEONE DIES. There's a sickness in the soul of this fandom, a sickness fed by blood.

    DC Fricked up with Wally West so hard over a decade and even more once he returned thanks to Tom King and Diane Nelson, that Johns last Act of Service alongside Scott Snyder and Williamson was fix Wally and Send a huge Frick You at the OMD Editorial at Marvel and DC with the entire Dark Crisis Shitshow that restored him and made him more OP.
    Now Wally is literally the Shonen Hero of Western Comics, While Barry is now treated like trash thanks to the movie and he in comics behaving like ass and getting beaten by Edward Nygma.

      Cause the ramifications of OMD are still felt today. Marvel claimed OMD was necessary because they needed Spider-Man young and relatable, they needed to get him back to basics, etc etc

      The reality is:
      >If Aunt May is in peril, it will remind the reader of OMD
      >The setup using Mephisto requires the resolution to be Peter and Mary Jane married again, regardless of what Marvel thinks. If it were Loki doing the deal, I think most people could've moved on.
      >Despite wanting Spider-Man to be young, they bring in Miles Morales who will draw more attention to Peter being older. Ditto Spider-Boy.
      >Despite wanting Spider-Man to be relatable they allowed Slott to do his Parker Industries storyline, where Doc Ock under control of Peter's body made Parker Industries and Peter just basically fell into taking it over and running it.
      >Every attempted relationship goes nowhere because either the reader knows it will go nowhere because Marvel could do another OMD to reset, or the relationships are written unconvincingly (ie new characters like Carlie or Michelle Gonzales or established characters like Black Cat and Mockingbird in BND/Slott/Wells eras)

        The most infuriating part of it is that despite wanting a young and relatable Peter from "the good old days" nothing about the comics since OMD has ever even resembled it
        >He's not even at ESU anymore, he only ever went back during Spencer's run and it was a footnote (superiorshit doesn't count)
        >He doesn't interact with the Bugle cast at all, meaning 80% of his supporting cast goes unused
        >They went so far as to blacklist Peter from photography so he'd never be able to do that job again
        >The other 20% of his supporting cast are also unused or made into symbiote users for whatever fricking reason. Characters only get used if they are directly related to the Spider-Man plot going on right now (like Randy or Betty), B-Plots and Peter Parker plots are all gone
        >The current comics don't resemble the good old days at all. Instead of Peter being a down on his luck guy trying to do well by himself, his family, and his city (as Spider-Man), he's a loser with an unstable career, almost no friends (the ones he does have are all in stable relationships and have kids) and no girlfriend

      "These characters exist in the same world, sometimes they meet, sometimes they team up" wasn't a problem. Even "sometimes there are event stories where all the heroes come together" isn't that much of a problem until it's happening several times a year.

      The big problem was turbo autist nerds who just want to connect everything that originally was self-contained, making characters from different books suddenly related to each other, or insisting characters in one book had to react or deal with things going on in another title. By the time we get the X-Men yelling at the Avengers for not being there to solve all their problems, something had gone badly wrong.

      Trying to make Carol the female face of Marvel after the fricking mess that was Avengers 200

      Avengers #200 was irrelevant and largely forgotten by the type Marvel started pushing Carol, the problem was more taking a character who'd been a cheesecake swimsuit bimbo aimed at male readers for decades and trying to turn her into "Marvel's Wonder Woman" and their idea of a strong female A-lister.

            As bad as his time as EiC was for Marvel, in fairness to him, the bad blood with DC came from him making jokes during an interview (not even "comics journalism", but mainstream media) that he'd asked be kept off the record but the interviewer printed them anyway.

        I would say that's primarily a modern X-Men pity party issue though.
        The unwritten rule in all shared universes is that you don't expect other characters to always show up in every other book. They can't have the Avengers show up and deal with everything because then they'd take over the book and no one would be happy. Instead, the writer is supposed to justify why others don't show up (a simple "they're busy" is really all you need) or you don't raise the question at all (unless it's in obvious jest like pic related). But the X-Men need their victim complex so you always get Emma Frost whining about Genosha as if the Avengers ignored their pleas for help when in reality the sentinels came and went far too quickly for the to reasonably respond, even if they weren't busy fighting Kang

      There's a parallel timeline where the likes of Sensation Comics, Action Comics, & Detective Comics remained anthologies and got thicker, letting new characters ride on the coattails of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman (who kept appearing in those books in their own stuff). That timeline is better and has more diversity in the books.

    Here's my nomination:

    Everything Batgirl/Birds of Prey.

    See, with Spider-Man, there's an understandable desire to set back the clock. He's Marvel's biggest character, they're going to want to find ways to turn him into whatever version of the character they think will sell best.

    But in terms of unforced error, just look at the mess that the Batgirl/BoP corner of the DCU ended up. First they fricked up Cassandra Cain, just an absolute tried-to-frick-my-wife-somehow-fricked-the-dog-instead "it shouldn't be possible to screw up that badly" screwup. They made Steph Batgirl and quickly ditched the whole likable angle that she lacked the skills and training of the Batfamily but tried really hard. So now she's just another hypercapable Batperson. They cured Oracle, completely undercutting their own claims at "diversity and inclusion" in order to have a new Batgirl book that wasn't popular enough to match the BoP/Batgirl sales from back before the meddling started. So now we've got a "Batgirls" book, but the characters have all been mismanaged so badly there's only a fraction of the interest they could've had if they'd used the same cast back in 2006, before all the idiocy. And they've gradually mismatched the BoP name so badly it basically just means "team of random girls," with a movie adaptation that's a serious contender for worst comicbook adaptation of all time.

    I hate OMD but I kinda get it, same with various reboot frickups. With this... it was just headless chickens tripping over one another.

    >MJ dies in Peter's arms from her injuries, Marvel Universe grieves.

    >Gwen tells Peter she doesn't blame him for her dying and hugs him. Peter hugs her back, and that's where it ends.

    Let's see:
    >Sanctuary being a thing. A place where heroes supposedly go for therapy treatment yet there's no qualified therapists at all, nor security. What it does have are rooms which shows the heroes their most traumatising or emotional memories over and over again, which I'm no therapist myself but I'm pretty sure that does the opposite of help
    >Another event to kill off characters for no other reason than shock value
    >They mentioned they wanted to emulate the horror of a school or mall shooting....except the culprit here was Flash, and the trigger that killed the people was an accident, mass shooters don't accidently kill people.
    >The trinity not only pretty much do jack shit throughout the event, despite them being so prominent in the covers and the summaries say they do stuff, they also at one point went 3 on 1 to take Harley in....and she gave them a hard time by herself.
    >No blame was placed on the Sactuary itself, despite the comics clearly showing the flaws it had and it continued to be in operation at the end.
    I don't know if subsequent comics later rectified the shit listed here but the event itself was easily the worst "Crisis" event DC had put out.

        Just one or the other could've knocked DC off their game but could've been recoverable

        Doing both killed a LOT of goodwill and it showed

    Alex betraying the team for his father he hated was pretty moronic. Ruined one of the good books left at the time.
