Sometimes comic books can have some shocking and brutal moments….
Here are some of my personal favorite
1) Joker beats Jason Todd to a pulp….with a crow-bar
The Joker can be cruel…but this moment in comic book history was beyond cruel, even for him. Joker beats Jason Todd to a pulp with a crow-bar. He then leaves him in a warehouse that explodes. Oh and all of this is done in front of Jason’s mom who dies in the explosion. Batman is too late to save them.
2) X-Men #25
Magneto rips out Wolverine’s Adamantium.
3) Tastes like chicken
The Blob eats The Wasp….and then gets his head bitten off by Hank Pym.
4) Hulk splits Wolverine in Half…
This is the second time wolverine has appeared on this list getting his ass handed to him. In Ultimate Wolverine v. Hulk, Banner loses his mind and becomes a murderous villian. At one point he just splits Wolverine in half and tosses him aside. Wolverine has to crawl four miles just to get his legs back.
5) Deadpool kills….everyone
Finally, my favorite. Deadpool is insane and Deadpool is also just fed up with being a super-hero. He’s tired of being brought back to life constantly and not being allowed to die. So he does the only logical thing. He kills everyone. Every super-hero. He breaks the fourth wall and even kills the writers. He threatens to kill the readers as well. Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe is one of my favorite comics ever.
This list is more-so on the Marvel side since I’ve read more Marvel comics so feel free to add some more.
