Top 5 comic arcs

I’ve been watching cartoons and reading comic books ever since I was a young kid. I was drawn in by the art, but as I grew older I appreciated the story that came with that art. These are the stories that made my list and made me read these comics multiple times.

Planet Hulk

Planet Hulk

After Hulk did a job for SHIELD in space, he thought he was going home, but instead it was a trap. A trap set by the Illuminati to send Hulk to a lonely planet. As he is listening in, he gets enraged even more and destroys the ship, causing it to fall into a wormhole. On the other side of that wormhole was the planet, Skaar. Upon exiting the ship, he was subjugated to slavery and to fight as a gladiator. Will Hulk be able to survive in this harsh reality, or can he conquer all and live a peaceful life? You get to see a different side of the Hulk. A Hulk that can be hurt is a rare sight on Earth, but here it’s a common thing.

World War Hulk

World War Hulk

Hulk is back to do what he does best, destroy things and hurt people. Hulk is coming back to Earth to seek revenge on the Illuminati that sent him to be enslaved. Hulk blames the Illuminati members for the destruction of his new life and now he comes to destroy them and anyone who helps them. Hulk plans to take down each member one by one, but he gives Earth a chance to hand them over to him so he does not have to go on a wonton destruction. This is the angriest Hulk has been and his first stop is on the moon. The heroes of Earth just ended the Civil War event and now has to face their biggest and strongest challenge yet. Who will stop the Hulk? Is there anyone strong enough to do it? And will Hulk be able to exact his revenge? If you want to see where the Avengers 2 Hulk vs Hulkbuster got the inspiration, I would say look no further than here.

Batman: Court of Owls

Court of Owls

The court is a very old subterfuge that has had its grips on Gotham. They are a violent faction that is comprised of some of Gotham’s oldest and richest families who use their wealth to murder and gain political influence throughout history. They have highly skilled assassins called Talons, and the leaders of this court all wear owl masks. A nursery rhyme has been passed down through generations describing them:

Beware the Court of Owls, that watches all the time,
Ruling Gotham from a shadowed perch, behind granite and lime.
They watch you at your hearth, they watch you in your bed.
Speak not a whispered word about them, or they’ll send the Talon for your head.

They congregate in some of Gotham’s oldest structures. This group has sentenced Bruce Wayne to death for his plans of changing Gotham for the future. They sent an assassin, Talon, to kill Bruce but is unable to do so. Bruce starts to dig for more information regarding the Court of Owls and finds a connection between him and the Court. What is Bruce’s connection to the Court? And how will Bruce fight off this assassin? Guess you will have to read it to find out.

Marvel’s Civil War

Civil War

A death can trigger a massive change. When the villain Nitro killed members of the New Warriors, civilians, and comrades he was with, the government passed the Superhero Registration Act. It required superpowered characters to act as officials for the government, like cops. One man is opposed to this, and that man is Captain America. He fears that the Act will give villains access to the personal lives of heroes and will endanger everyone they know. The one pushing for the Act is none other than Iron Man; he believes that people should be accountable for their actions and with proper training and oversight, they can work without a lot of casualties. This puts many heroes at odds with friends and others divided on which side to choose. Who will win this war?

Batman: Hush

Batman Hush

There is a new villain in Gotham and he is gunning for the Bats. (Nothing new there.) This villain seems to always be a step ahead of Batman and seems to be attacking him from afar and is dealing major damage. While all this is happening, Batman is starting to feel something for Catwoman. Could this be someone he can trust with his heart? She is not the only villain to make an appearance on here, with many from Batman’s past coming. In addition to villians, various members of the Batman family shows up to help Batman and Alfred anyway they can. But can they do anything to this mysterious villain wreaking havoc on Gotham?
