Captain America's death

Batgirl getting shot (and probaly raped too) by Joker

Willian Mothaf*cker Stryker killing the students

Silver Age Superman

When Thanos killed all heroes and Cap kept fighting,i tought it was sad him being by himself after watching everybody ding and he still had guts to fight!

Batman's spine broken by Bane (tought he recovered later,it was a shock)

note: i wont say Superman's death because i am not his fan,he came back years ago and never cared about him anyway

Caps death.
Thunderstrike's death. I know a lot are not really big fans of his etc. But the end of that comic and Thor paying tribute to him and stuff made me sad.

It wasn't discussed but it was slightly hinted at seeing as he undressed her but i don't think joker did rape Batgirl they would have referenced this as fact at some point.

Earth-1121's "Kingdom Come" Hyperion finally finds a way to die so that he can go to the afterlife and save Zarda. But after he defeats The Kree Military he discovers that she's fallen in love with The Grandmaster's Clone and would rather be with him than the "real" Hyperion.

She chose the Clone over the Real Thing? Ouch.
She chose the Clone over the Real Thing? Ouch.

Meggan sacrifices her life to close a supermassive tear in the fabric of time/space which had sent an Omniverse-spanning "Chaos Wave" that was trying to destroy every reality in existence and replace them all with duplicates of The House of M timeline.

1.The Team disbanded.
2.Iron Man or Dwayne Taylor tortured and killed Tony Stark (alternate reality)
3.Night Thrasher or Donyell Taylor killed Iron Man his own brother. (alternate reality)

Oh and BTW he went to that reality thinking he had went back in time to save his brother from the Stamford incident that caused him to be killed in the first place.

It was so awesome. I actually bought it in paperback form. It was long after the series was over with and I was flipping through it at a bookstore and said Oh My God! This is like one of the best stories I've ever read! I plopped down the fourteen bucks it cost to buy it and continue to read it to this day from start to finish.

The ending of Planet Hulk made me cry. I mean Caiera had JUST announced that she was Pregnant with Hulk's child and then the ship's Warp Core goes off like an atomic bomb, wrecks Sakaar and obliterates Caiera in the process...she's back now...well kind of but not really.

Marvel Buys Heroes World

Does anyone remember that, or remember reading about that in 1994?  Before 94, Marvel distributed their books through multiple channels.  These additional distributors also shipped books for several independent publishers.  With their revenue cut, sometimes by more than half, most of these channels went out of business and very nearly took the indie publishers with them.

These days if you want to run a comic shop, you need a partnership with Diamond Distribution, who often operate contracts under very draconian conditions.
