List Criteria: Vote up the events that had the biggest impact on comics in 2016.

The new Golden Age of comic books, which arguably began with the 2008 release of Iron Man in theaters, continued right through 2016 and shows no sign of slowing down as we enter 2017. While much of the media focus is on the film adaptations of Marvel and DC’s comic universes, the published adventures of each company have also earned an increase in attention through association. And in 2016, they crafted some shocking comics storylines.

Comic book events are mainstream news like never before, and publishers obviously try to capitalize on exposure by throwing as many twists and turns at readers as possible. 2016 was no exception; some truly massive events had far-reaching impacts throughout their respective fictional universes. Vote for your favorites to help determine which 2016 comic events were the most important.

It shouldn't even need to be mentioned, but there are MAJOR SPOILERS for all sorts of different comics published in 2016 in this list!
