Top Five Characters Retroactively Empowered by Apocalypse

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

The X-Men villain Apocalypse was introduced in 1986. However, his backstory soon established that he was actually an ancient mutant who had simply been operating behind the scenes for years. Therefore, over the years a number of writers have chosen to retcon Apocalypse into the backstory of various characters, revealing that Apocalypse was the one who gave them their powers. Here are the top five such characters…

As you may or may not know, the 1990s were the decade of the jacket at Marvel Comics.

Here, then, are the top five jacket-wearing superhero teams at Marvel in the 1990s.

Top Five Best Daredevil/Punisher Fights

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

With the debut of the Punisher in the second season of the Daredevil Netflix television series, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the five best in-continuity Daredevil/Punisher fights. I have decided to choose individual fights within overall stories (like ranking each individual fight within the Daredevil vs. Punisher mini-series rather than counting the entire mini-series as one huge fight). If you prefer to consider each overall story as one fight, I’ve included five overall stories on the countdown for that very purpose, so just go by the overall stories for an alternate top five.

Top Five Worst Things Quicksilver Has Ever Done

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

Quicksilver was a notable creation by Stan Lee in that he is one of those rare superheroes where he’s just actively a jerk. Yeah, he wants to do good for the most part, but he also wants to do so while being rude to everyone. Peter David famously explained Pietro’s poor behavior by explaining that to him, life is like constantly being stuck being a slow-moving line at the ATM or DMV. And that is why he is so irritable. Interestingly enough, the whole “He’s a jerk but he’s a superhero!” angle didn’t even really make him stand out when he first joined the Avengers, as that was practically Stan Lee’s exact characterization for Hawkeye, as well – “He’s a jerk but he’s a superhero!” So Quicksilver also had the added character trait of being overprotective of his twin sister, Wanda, the Scarlet Witch. EDITED TO ADD: What made Quicksilver stand out is that his jerky behavior became the defining characteristic while it became less of an important trait in the other characters similar to him at the time, like Hawkeye.

While being a jerky superhero, Pietro sometimes crossed the line and did stuff worse than just being a jerk. Here, then, are the top five worst things Quicksilver ever did…
