Well, it's 2014. There's a lot to look forward to this year, but this week, we wanted to reflect on 2013 and all of the big stories it hit us with. We provided 14 options on the poll and the community had 2 days to think it through and cast their votes. Now that all of the votes are in, we've gotta admit, we're pretty surprised by the results. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a TIE! Marvel's INFINITY and DC's FOREVER EVIL both earned a respectable 19%.
- DC's Forever Evil 19%
- Marvel's Infinity 19%
- Batman's Death of the Family 13%
- Batman's Zero Year 12%
- TMNT's City Fall 9%
- DC's Trinity War 7%
- Deadpool's The Good, The Bad and The Ugly 4%
- X-Men's Battle of the Atom 4%
- Valiant's Harbinger Wars 3%
- Other (Specify Below) 3%
- DC's Villains Month 2%
- Green Lantern's Wrath of the First Lantern 2%
- Marvel's Age of Ultron 1%
- Ultimates' Cataclysm 1%
One of these earning the victory wouldn't be surprising at all, but both of them? Well played, Comic Vine community. It's understandable why these are being held in such high regard, too. Many big events in recent years have been very hit or miss -- and that's putting it politely. However, the latest efforts by Geoff Johns and Jonathan Hickman have been widely praised, feel grand in scale and many absolutely believe they more than warrant the title of "big event." While INFINITY just wrapped up and opened the door to INHUMANITY, Geoff Johns' FOREVER EVIL is still kicking and it's clearly making a good enough impression where people don't even need to see the conclusion yet to deem it one of their favorite stories of 2013.
