    Another arc I really liked was the so-called Cancerverse storyline Marvel ran a few years ago. Basically in the main Marvel U, Captain Marvel succumbed to cancer and died. In this alternate timeline, the heroes decide to save Captain Marvel by any means necessary. Eventually this means killing the personification of Death in the Marvel U, which inadvertently lets the Lovecraftian Old Gods into the world. The heroes gets possessed, chaos ensues, it's all a good time. You can check it out in the Realm of Kings arc (must read the one-shot first, it sets the whole thing up) and the story concludes in the Thanos Imperative storyline.

    The Defenders in the Cancerverse.


    And the Avengers, known as the Revengers.

    Sorry the images are so large.

    The Watchmen, Sin City, The Walking Dead. I like the comic a lot more than the show for The Walking Dead (although the show is still enjoyable).

    Also already mentioned but I enjoyed the Infinity Gauntlet series when I was a kid which was basically the marvel universe vs Thanos and the gauntlet. Was pretty cool back then, I'm not sure it will hold up today but it's worth checking out.

    "There were many ways of not burdening one's conscience, of shunning responsibility, looking away, keeping mum. When the unspeakable truth of the holocaust then became known at the end of the war, all too many of us claimed that they had not known anything about it or even suspected anything."

    By the by, my typo in the title is killing me.

    What was Irredeemable? Was I thinking of that one instead of Invincible?

    Oh, and you'll need a reader. I use CDisplay on my PC, and Perfect Viewer on my Android tab / phone.
    Demon is is back up. Can't vouch for its safety yet. But it's up.

    That's what I thought you were probably referring to.

    Yeah, I've got an account there but haven't had much luck finding much of anything.

    Try some of the 2000 AD comics. Judge Dredd among other got their start there
