I like the Juggernaut 1-shot from the 90's. Its a fun comic about Cain, where yeah, he's a villain,
but he's always been the villain who just wouldn't quit, no matter the odds that were thrown at
him. He was a loveable asshole. Wasn't there to cause trouble, just to get flat out wasted. It was
kind of refreshing to see a villain in a different light.

The best part though, was when D'Spayre melted him away, and Cain's response to his disbelief
was perfect.

Azrael's final battle with Bane from Knightfall. I liked that it was portrayed as one big gladitorial battle, in a way.
The police, the crowd, all were waiting for Batman to arrive and fight Bane. I liked that the police refused to interfere.
Like Batman HAD to win the fight himself, they couldn't step in.He shows up in a suit or armor, Bane shows up as well,
and after a brief conversation, Batman simply responds, "Prepare to be mugged."

Then came that HELLACIOUS ass-whuppin.'

And by the end, Paul overcomes his inner mechanisms and spares Bane, taking up the mantle of Batman.

Bruce told Dick tht he did not call him because he had worked so hard to become his own man that he did not think it would be fair to ask him to don the Cowl.

And that makes this moment from Secret Six #7 even more powerful:











There are many  in that series but too lazy to get them

One of the more satisfying moments of Man-Thing.
