    Best

    -- Acts of Vengeance since that gave us a goddamn good story with Cosmic Spider-Man.

    -- Secret Wars '84 still the best showing of Spider-Man as character from writing and character impact in any Marvel event.

    -- Civil War, the main event was trash, but JMS' Civil War tie-ins and Back in Black is awesome.

    -- HUNTED would have to be the best Spider-Man centric event complete with awesome ".HU" one-shots.

    Worst
    -- Superior Spider-Man.

    It kinda depends on your definition of event.

    But Kraven's Last Hunt could count. It was a crossover that took over three titles for two months, and featured Spider-Man believed dead.

    The worst event is probably the worst crossover of the clone saga.

    I don't know if you can concider it as an event, but the Birth of Venom was very fun to read.
    Composed of :
    1. Amid the Chaos, There Comes a Costume - Secret War #8
    2. The Black Costume Saga - AMS #252-259
    3. The Break Up - Spectacular Spider-Man #100
    4. Til Death Do Us Part - Web of Spider-Man #1
    5. Venom - AMS #300 + partial of ASM #298-299
    6. The return of Venom - AMS #315-317

    I will never complain about regular event semantics again.

    Since it's alright to mention events that happened before OMD, I'll go ahead and choose...

    Round Robin: The Sidekick's Revenge!

    Definitely best, IMHO.

    I'm not sure about "best."

    Spidey has loads of great events in his long history. Immediately coming to mind are Ends of the Earth, KLH, Dying Wish/Superior Spider-man and I'll will always have a soft-spot for Spider-Hunt (and Identity Crisis to a lesser extent).

    And then there is The Gathering of Five/Final Chapter.

    Because I apparently hate myself, I recently payed actual money for the trade to revisit and see if it was as awful as I remember. On the plus side, it wasn't exactly as bad as I remember. On the negative side; it was worse.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    Awesome! It was a wonderful story, and Marvel's Epic Collections are pleasingly economical (IMHO).
