Okay, I Cried “Monster!” Like You Asked. Now What?

48 Marvel Story Titles and Cover Blurbs That Urge Us to Cry Something

cry-parkerSo what is it with Marvel’s characters and all the crying they get up to all the time?

No, I’m not talking about the blubbering that Peter Parker raised to an art form with the face that launched a thousand Facebook memes.

I’m talking about the other kind of crying, the “shout or say something loudly” type of crying. You know, the “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!” kind.

Maybe it was the pressure of getting these things out on time that led to the writers using the “Cry [Noun]!” form over and over, or maybe they just liked the idea of their characters screaming random words as they dove into battle.

Either way, there has been a whole lot of crying over the years. For instance…
