Totally off topic, but mine is 'The Coming of...Clayface III!" from Detective Comics #478.

Hard to say; over the years, my likes and dislikes concerning COIE have changed quite a few times; and I was never really attached to i, even if it was the "current" universe for most of my life. Overall, I`d say that COIE`s consequences and story choices were 50/50 in my book, as the New 52 is now.
From back then, I liked that they managed to keep the Golden Age super-heroes existing in their somewhat classic forms. I liked all the "new generation" energy Coie brought, also, with Wally as Flash, new faces in the JL. I loved the legacy aspect that was mas made official by COIE, and became a trend for a while.
But I disliked strongly that we had to wait more than ten ears for a "Big 7" Justice League, and that WW was no longer a founding member. I hated Byrne Superman and how long it`s influence lasted. I missed the multiverse, a lot. And, from Didio`s tenure on, I kind of hated the push on the more "classical" interpretations of everything; Loeb`s Supergirl, Geoff Johns´ Teen Titans, killing Lian Harper, benching Cass Cain and specially Flash Rebirth.... I felt that the "classical" trend and it`s implementation were systematically screwing up most of the unique, most interesting aspects of the post-Coie continuity; to the point were it indeed became broken, and a reboot was really needed.
I don`t agree with everything in the Nu52 (by far), and I don`t think that practicing pretty much the same editorial embargoes and edicts that the immediate post-COIE universe had in effect is a good idea. but an initiative along the lines of the one we got was necessary at this point.
I shed no tears for the post-COIE universe, basically, because it was over a while ago, really.
I just reread 10 Nights of the Beast a couple of months ago for the first time since the issues came out, and it was solid. I always liked "Chaos--Coming and going" for some reason--Captain Boomerang invades gotham. Good stuff

COIE was, technically, a new universe, and I believe that the "Big 7" JL should be one of the first "entities" in any iteration of the DCU. Certainly, the first team of it`s era. Post COIE, we didn`t have that; Wonder Woman status meant that the very first the Big 7 were officially a team, it was Morrison`s JLA. (and I think that it also meant Diana never knew Barry Allen, which is just absurd).
