Wow! That's some seriously hilarious stuff. I also notice that many of these stories are actually fairly recent, you always think of crazy stuff happening in the 60s, but no, the F4 traveled to heaven in 2003.

I swear comic books have been doing this crazy stuff just to give Cracked more material in the future.
I apologize in advance for everything I say on here. I regret it immediately after clicking post.

Well, 3 of the 5 are recent, one's from the 60s and one's from the 80s.

Spider-man giving birth to himself blew my mind with badness however.  What was anyone involved in that thinking?

I could cite the numerous ammount of work creative staff that works on every single comic issue (including no less than 2 artists by the panels previewed alone) but... no. That is not thought there, at all.

Yeah, somebody is always posting the comics articles from Cracked on another forum and I'm always surprised at both how nerdy and funny they are. Spidey is the gold seal out of that crop, pretty awful.

I actually kinda liked the Spiderman one.  It was more of a reverse-transformation than a death though.  He looked like he was dead because he was shedding most of his bulk.

The only one that was halfway clever was Jack Kirby as God...and that tribute might have been the whole point of doing that storyline.

And to think, my favorite go-to example was Justice League's Ice being resurrected by ritual magic in a storyline that already featured he Secret Six guest starring in and fighting with the Birds of Prey. It's pure proof that it's never a bad time to undo a c-list punk death.

Hell, by my count Marvel owes us a few dozen of those at this point.

Those are hilarious! Spider-Man wins the absurdity contest on that one, though Alfred changing Robin into a piece of furniture is a close second.
