What do you think is the best Last Stand in comics, history, video games, etc. ?

Try and list as many details as you can.

For example :

Battle of Thermopylae

Didn't Batman win that?

I don't think it counts as a Last Stand if he wins...

Oh.

I didn't realize. I was thinking of "one person VS a lot of people in a disadvantaged situation."

I have to admit to watching that video like 200 times. It's ridiculously good and definitely one of the best last stands.

She had left the group to fend for themselves, but returned at the last minute to basically flank an army by herself armed only with a rifle and the roof of her RV. She took out a few of The Governors inner circle before they crashed into her RV and left her for dead to be eaten by Walkers.

That issue blew me away, man. Sure, Frank giving Daken hell takes some major PIS, but whatever, it was brutal, emotional and that's some of the best art I've ever seen from JRJR.

@k4tzm4n: It really was kind of PISy issue with Frank doing as well as he did but the message was clear and him staring down Daken with half his face gone, throat slashed, multiple stabs wounds in the chest, a missing arm and a broken leg with a hole in it gave me a new respect for Castle.

Superboy's final stand in Infinite Crisis is probably my favorite, right next to Supergirl's final stand in Crisis on Infinite earths.

@k4tzm4n: It's easily my favorite fight scene ever.

Frank VS Daken on a rooftop in the rain, surrounded by HAMMER scumbags - to the death.

It's like, all of my favorite final battle tropes mixed into one beautiful gorefest.

@god_spawn: I know, right? I'm also in love with the song now. I can't help but picture the fight as I listen. :P
