    I actually like Davis on Excalibur better than Claremont.
    PAD's first X-factor.
    Joe Casey's Uncanny was also pretty good, IMO. Overall, I really lived the whole franchise during Morrison's days.

    One run I'm surprised nobody mentioned yet is Winnick's Exiles. It was just tons of fun and a great homage to all things X-men. The current run is cool, but they haven't quite recaptured the same magic and sense of high stakes.

    I have a soft spot for X-Terminators miniseries. I think it's Weezie Simonson's best work, and Bogdanove is as splendid as usual (even inked by Milgrom).



    I also love Davis' Excalibur, PAD's X-Factor, Windsor-Smith' X-Weapon, Milligan's X-Statix... But I think they're not so underrated, thus many people like them.

    Brian K. Vaughan's run on Ultimate X-Men is the first that comes to mind. Hell, there are so many great runs during that book, and its sequel series. Brian Wood's Ultimate Comics: X-Men was fantastic, as was Millar, and Bendis' runs. As a whole it was without a doubt the best X-Men book of the early 2000s.

    Vaughan was the best writer on Ultimate X-men and that run made me want him to take over for a flagship 616 title, but that never happened

    For as much praise he gets for his other work, UXM is without a doubt his best traditional superhero run. It'd be nice to see him write another X-Men run of some kind, but that isn't likely to happen. At least bring Syndicate into the Mainstream universe.

    I forgot about this one. Absolutely Weezie's best work, far exceeding any of her work on NM or X-Factor. Taki brokering a deal for organic snacks with a demons delighted me to no end!

    Millar's Ultimates was wayyyy better than his X-Men, but it had great art and was kinda cool( I liked his Illuminati Hellfire Club take on the dark Phoenix, even if it did fizzle out completely in the end, and his Proteus/Legion condensation was actually very effective). I actually didn't care much for Vaughan's or Bendis's runs. Kirkman's was actually pretty cool, I thought. Wood's run was certainly.... interesting. I wanted to like Ultimate X-Men a lot more than I did though. Very uneven. And certainly not the best of that age(New and X-Treme take it easily).

    Seconded. Winick's Exiles was an absolute delight, with a great premise and wonderful character work. I also loved his Outsiders with Tom Raney way back then, and was very keen on getting Judd on one of the main X-Men books. Too bad that never happened and that he doesn't work in comics much anymore.

    Davis on Excalibur.
    Liu on Astonishing.
    Rucka on the Cyclops solo.
    BKV's Icons: Chamber mini. I'm stunned Marvel hasn't reprinted that yet.

    I always had a soft spot for the Seagle/Kelly era. Reading both titles, I felt like Kelly's run was the stronger one of the two. I just wished the X-Office had run smoothly in terms of continuity and picking out the new creative teams right off the bat. I know in Uncanny X-Men # 353, Marrow was there and that was an error. So hence why I wished their was a timeline established.

    The dropped subplots Seagle had Uncanny X-Men, such as Jean Grey becoming the Phoenix, someone from the board of education to come over the X-Mansion to see how things were ran, and Dr. Agee's endgame.

    For Joe Kelly, I wanted to see what Sebastian Shaw's dealings were for the entity, Dark Beast's agenda for Marrow, and see the true story of the Psi-War. Those were stories that I wished to have been explored.

    Plus I was aware that Seagle and Kelly wanted to kill off Storm. I would say bring her back under a new creative team. Besides, death is like a revolving door sometimes.

    I'm going to take 'underrated' as 'gets too much hate.'

    For Bendis I think his run does not deserve the hate it gets. It wasn't great, but it had its cool moments and was always at least a fun read.

    The Lobdell run doesn't deserve any hate, but it was a 'safe' run that basically kept the franchise in a holding pattern for years, so it's very unmemorable compared Claremont and Morrison.

    Lobdell and Generation Next was something I still care about and continues to be a strongly told story

    Is Lobdell considered "underrated"?

    I liked it. Mostly because it's the era when I got into comics.

    His Generation X was especially good.
