75 Most Memorable Moments in Marvel Comics History #30-21

In honor of Marvel's seventy-fifth anniversary, we're doing a countdown of the most memorable moments in Marvel Comics history, based on YOUR votes!

Here are the latest results of the countdown! Be forewarned, these memorable moments WILL include some spoilers of old famous Marvel stories!


30. "Even an Android Can Cry" by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and George Klein (Avengers #58)

In Avengers #57, the Avengers are attacked by an android known as the Vision. The Vision was created by the evil robot Ultron and the Vision is doing quite a fine job of kicking the Avengers' collective ass when he manages to break free from the programming of his "father" and he helps to save the Avengers. The next issue, the Avengers gather together to determine whether they should allow their newfound ally to join the team.


In the end, they decide to make him a member and he handles the news in adorable fashion...

29. "Cap Stands Off Against Thanos" by Jim Starlin, Ron Lim and Joe Rubinstein (Infinity Gauntlet #4)

In Infinity Gauntlet #4, Captain America helps to lead a team of some of the most powerful Marvel Superheroes (plus Doctor Doom) to try to stop the mad Titan Thanos. Thanos toys with them one by one, killing them in various fashions (sucking Wolverine's skeleton out of his body, blowing Quasar's quantum bands up, flat out knocking Iron Man's head off, stuff like that). It's a gruesome scene and soon there is only one combatant left - possibly the least powerful member of the group, Captain America. But he is undeterred...


As we see on the next page (and a little on these pages), Cap's plan was that the heroes were only there to distract Thanos so that the Silver Surfer would have the chance to swoop in and steal the Infinity Gauntlet off of Thanos' hand. The plan almost worked, too! But it didn't. Cap gets a few punches in and then Thanos kills him (of course, eventually the Infinity Gauntlet IS recovered from Thanos and the cosmic reset button is hit).

28. "The Debut of the All-New, All-Different X-Men" by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum (Giant-Size X-Men #1)

This is another odd one in that I don't know precisely what people are talking about when they voted for the formation of the All-New, All-Different X-Men, so I figured I'd go with the first time they all gathered together as a team...
