Annihilation imo was the only one worth a damn.

Definately Annihilation. But if I had a second place, I would vote Disassembled. Not for it's execution, but for everything that stemmed from it.

Civil War was great. We're still feeling the effects from it. It was the only non-indie title that was in my comic book class.

Civil War was a good idea, but as an event as a whole, it suffered WAAAY too much from consistency. In some books, the Pro and Anti-Registration Sides were both good guys, doing what each of them thought was right. But in others, the Pro-Registration were evil, heartless monsters who lock up their friends in detention cells and send supervillains out to catch them. Also, why is Spider-Man wanted? Just BECAUSE he's Anti-Registration? Surely he would've signed up back when he had the Iron Suit. Does that mean they're literally going after you due to the ideology not the actions?

Wow, really? I mean I don't think Civil War deserves the amount of flak it gets personally, but I don't see it as something that would really be taught in a class.

My vote is going to Civil War. I know that the writing was the greatest, but for overall impact it gets my vote. The 50 State Initiative, Death of Captain America, and Norman Osborn in the Thunderbolts (which put him in the position to get where he is now) are all things that are still being felt to this day. The Marvel Universe became a much more chaotic place as a result.

Twenty years from now it will most likely be the one of the biggest things to ever happen to the Marvel Universe IMO.

Easily Annihilation. It totally revamped and reinvigorated the cosmic landscape as a great, untamed, Wild-West-in-space sort of deal, which I love. It featured major characters while still promoting B- and C-listers to the point that they could headline their own series. It felt true to the characters and was a great, fun, space opera story, too.

Civil War had good ideas but ran roughshod over plenty of the characters' personalities, which is inexcusable to me. If I read an event featuring major characters, I want them to feel like themselves.

And, there's still more to come. Talk about shaking things up: Inhumans rule the Kree. And Shiar(sort of, I'm kind of shaky on that one.) Gladiator is now Emperor(?). Warlock is now a bad guy. And not just a bad guy. A Bad Guy. And insane....awesome. Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova are two of the best series running. And there's a big-ass hole in space that all kinds of new, nasty stuff can spill out of. All because of Annihilation.

The Kree do rule the Shi'ar now, but in the sense that the English rule the Scots. The ultimate authority may rest with the Inhumans, who are direct leaders of the Kree, but the Shi'ar retain their own government and their own leader.

Gladiator = Majestor Kallark I now, which I love. It's always good to see the super-loyal servant become the leader against his wishes. I wish JMS had played up the situation with Balder in Asgard as well as DnA have handled Gladiator's in WoK.

Very Gladiator (the movie) except without the dying in the end...

Hmm, I didn't even notice that. I wonder if DnA took inspiration from Gladiator the movie for Gladiator the character.

What really sold me on Glads becoming Majestor was how he literally had to because no one else would or could. The politicians were too wrapped up in their own affairs, the people were panicking too much for democracy, the Inhumans or Kree would be too controversial and lacked intimate knowledge of the Shi'ar Empire; Gladiator was literally the only person who knew the situation, whom the people loved, and who could see and do what needed to be done because his interests lay with the people and the preservation of the Empire.

Maximum Security shouldnt even be on the list. What an embarassment that was. I think my favorite was HoM followed by Messiah Complex and Utopia

Yeah, I know. I got the list from Wikipedia. I only put it up there because it was the first major line-wide crossover this decade, even though I know it probably won't get a single vote.

I don't even remember what Maximum Security was about. I think there was an alien prison break in another dimension or something and the escapees spilled over onto Earth, right?

I dont know how it affected the Marvel Universe but I read the X-men parts of the story and it was a waste. The most significant thing to come out of that as far as the X-men was concerned was that it was the beginning of the end for Rogue. Thats when her powers went all crazy after absorbing a skrull. Its also when Bishop returned

BTW, here's the Wiki on the crossover: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_Security

I looked it up on Wikipedia. Aliens get fed up with humanity's constant meddling in space despite their being a relatively primitive society, so they decide to use Earth as a penal colony for their worst criminals in the hopes that they'll wipe humanity out. Actually kind of a cool concept, now that I think about it.

Apparently, Beta Ray Bill returned in Thor's tie-in with it. I think I had actually gotten bored and started skipping Thor issues by then, so I never read it.

I'll have to go with Civil War, even though I agree with some of the comments made against it in this thread.

I generally feel that the after-affects of all these events are way better than the events themselves. New Avengers was far better than Dissassembles, plus the awesome Captain America series. With HOM, it was all kind of boring until that "No more mutants" line, which I loved. Although, as I dont care about X-Men, I didnt read much of the stories after it, except for X-Factor. The Initiative I thought was wonderful, what with the Death of Captain America, Thunderbolts, and Iron Man. I thought it was a pretty cool new status quo. And that's why Civil War got my vote, what came out of it was the best stuff.

Of course, I didnt read a few of those events listed

Annihilation, no contest. I'd go as far as to say it was the best event in the last 20 years.

Agreed, there were very few low points throughout the series

You could say that Civil war and Secret Invasion, while the actual story wasn't great, the repercussions of said events have made them all worthwhile. Well, Annihilation managed not only to be a great story in and of itself, but the new status quo of the cosmic side of the MU is what we got out of it, and that, has been nothing short of awesome. That's why it wins. Not only was it a great read, but everything that came as a result of it has been the bees vagina.

I voted "other" because my favorite so far has been Utopia.

-Everything done with the Scarlet Witch (Disassembled, House of M, Decimation) was some ol' bullcrap.
-Civil War was executed horribly.
-Secret Invasion's premise was a little hard to swallow.
-Dark Reign's premise is even harder to swallow.
-I didn't read Maximum Security.
-I heard Annihilation was really good, but I just never got around to reading it.
-I loved the premise to World War Hulk, but it just seemed a little boring.
-I actually liked Messiah CompleX, but I still have a problem with the old "some of these people wouldn't be fighting each other if someone had bothered to mention one tiny thing" cliche.

Blame JMS and Paul Jenkins. They really were the only guilty ones. Reed, Bendis, Millar, and others on the other hand tried to portray them in a more equal light.

Spider-Man was wanted because he fought against the SHRA. He wasn't a registered opponent like X-Factor that vocally opposed registration but didn't actively fight against it. He was like the Invisible Woman and Human Torch in which they were registered, but defected to stop the law.

After Civil War ended, Invisible Woman and the Human Torch took accepted amnesty for their crimes while Spider-Man didn't and continued active resistance against the act and aided other unregistered heroes.

However, currently, Spider-Man is wanted because he is an unregistered hero. Mephisto tampered with the past and turned him into an unlicensed and unregistered vigilante. However, he is still remembered for defecting.
