Best:

> Spi­der-Man – No, I haven’t swapped minds with Doc Ock! Credit should be given for chang­ing a fivedecade long per­cep­tion.

> Hawkeye – The Matt Frac­tionDavid Aja treat­ment is enough to lobotomise all mem­o­ries of his dread­ful West Coast Avengers days. Worst:

> Wolver­ine – A clas­sic case of “quan­tity isn’t qual­ity” as the ol’ canuckle head con­tin­ues to flood the Mar­vel Uni­verse by ap­pear­ing in al­most ev­ery ti­tle!

Michael Best:

> Loki ( Young Avengers) – this book should re­ally have been called Loki and The Young Avengers, so dom­i­nat­ing and piv­otal is the God of Mis­chief in the story.

> Joseph Op­pen­heimer ( The Man­hat­tan Projects) – Op­pen­heimer has been a cen­tral fig­ure in this Im­age Comics ti­tle from the very be­gin­ning, and this year we fi­nally saw him rise to the role of the ul­ti­mate vil­lain in the se­ries. Worst:

> John Con­stan­tine – The Con­stan­tine I knew from Ver­tigo’s Hell­blazer se­ries would rather sell his soul to the Devil (or three) than be called a “su­per­hero”.
