What are the most ridiculous comics stories of all time?The comics industry has been around for decades, so it should come as little surprise that there are at least one or two storylines out there that could be considered – how should I put it? – unsuccessful. Maybe they’re an obvious sign of their time. The ‘70s was a weird decade, after all. Or maybe they involve beloved characters doing things they would never really do, all for the love of controversy. Or maybe, and we’re willing to bet this is the one that’s mostly true, maybe the storylines are just so batshit bonkers that no one has any real clue what’s going on. Truth is, a comic doesn’t have to be good to make it to our screens. Just look at Freeform’s Cloak and Dagger. Thankfully, the majority of the time, the most ridiculous comics are even too much for Hollywood.
When Marvel killed off a bunch of its characters in weird and disgusting ways
Ultimatum was meant to be a huge Marvel crossover event, which centered on Magneto’s attempt to destroy the world following the death of his children, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. It pretty much succeeded in only one thing: illustrating the deaths of nearly every Marvel superhero in the cringiest ways possible (there’s a whole, being eaten alive chain that we’d like to forget). But its worst offense has to be the fact that the few heroes who did manage to survive included the Fantastic Four.
