This week was a Marvel-heavy affair, with "Avengers" and "Spider-Man" scoring the big wins. People are psyched about the announcement of a "Captain America" sequel as well, now set in the modern day. In DC Comics news, rumors abound about new "Arkham City" DLC content. And in flesh-eating territory, there's a new "Walking Dead" petition worth sinking your teeth into.

Get all that and more as we count down the top ten stories on Splash Page this week.
